Living in the desert of Arizona, USA, we tend to get two seasons instead of four: winter and summer. However, I think most locations would argue that our winter is actually “fall,” especially in the low desert like Phoenix, but you get the point. Yet, it cannot be denied that there is still beauty in the desert. This picture was taken outside of a community college where I work part time. It doesn’t show beauty specific to the desert–although if you look close in the background you can see a row of our state tree the Palo Verde–but it does show how we can create our own beauty.
I think that’s a lot like life. We cannot control the situations in which we live. But we have the power to change our surroundings. We can create beauty…even in a desert.
