In the Desert

Tuesday, 11 March 2014

There, one perpetually bathes in the conditions for sheer boredom. And yet invisible divinities build up a net of directions, slopes and signs, a secret and living frame. No more uniformity. Everything takes up a definite position. Even one silence is unlike another silence.

... Man is first animated by invisible solicitations.

~ Anthoine de Saint-Exupery, @ Brain Pickings
