The Beautiful Desert
“I told you to turn right at that last junction. Now, where are we?”
“I know where we’re going.”
“For the last eight miles there has been nothing but cacti, scorpions, and buzzards.”
“The cacti… they are beautiful!”
“I know you invited me on a shot with your new camera, but getting lost in the desert is not my idea of a great first date anniversary.”
“Why did you buy me my two new lenses, if you did not want me to use them?”
“I want you enjoy yourself, honey. I just thought that tonight… we might be by ourselves.”
“We are by ourselves.”
“This is not what I had in mind.”
“In just another hour, you will have never seen the stars like you can see them on a clear desert night.”
“I suppose you remember, once the sun goes down… so does the temperature in this lovely desert of yours.”
“I have a plan.
“We are following one of your plans.”
“Oh, yes. Tonight will be a night you will not quickly forget.”
