Years ago when I first visited 'the desert' as my kids now call this land we live in, I witnessed many shades of brown.
Now my eyes see much more color.
Flat lands look amber, ochre, lemon, citrus or crimson.
Mtn. Peaks perceived as deep cobalts, aubergine purple or even violent salmon.
And the sky? It's as moody as anything showing off its warm blush in the rose sunset shrouded in a mystery of clouds or its wide open cool blues for as long as you can see.
