the priest's wife on the high desert

She lives out here, with the rabbits and ground squirrels. With her husband, the priest at the little white church on the corner, and her little boy with black lashes.

It's beautiful and desolate and so quiet you can hear the sound of your heart beating.

Your pilgrimage mirrors the destination. It's beautiful and desolate and quiet. My own pilgrimage to NV contains the solitude to hear one's own heart beating (the sound of the Lord knocking?). Into the desert to find the City.
