Sand Dunes Series
I still remember my first time in the sand dunes at Death Valley – how much they comforted me. I did not know why. But every time I stand in the sand dunes, it makes me smile, it soothes my soul. Standing alone with no sound, no presence of people or animals, I am never afraid. Before sunrise, it’s so quiet, it’s as though my heartbeats are being absorbed. As the sun appears from behind the mountains, all of the sudden, I hear the music from out of nowhere, and the sand dunes appear in black dresses inviting me to dance with them. When the sun goes down, total silence falls again. Left alone in the sand, I wonder if I were just dreaming.
