Contemplation




"The desert says nothing. Completely passive, acted upon but never acting, the desert lies there like the bare skeleton of Being, spare, sparse, austere, utterly worthless, inviting not love but contemplation.

Despite its clarity and simplicity, however, the desert wears at the same time, paradoxically, a veil of mystery." *
