Inspired by Myra's wonderful Simple Caveman layout from a while back. I loved the big photo so thought I'd give it a go with some more of Ali's great word art. I caught this shot of my mom on our yearly hiking trip; it seemed perfect for a quote that remarks on the vastness of the desert landscape.


Text reads: “I walk out onto a point from which I can look down at the river, nearly straight below. From up here the sound of the river, until now a permanent part of my auditory background, is no longer perceptible, and the desert silence takes on a deeper dimension. The sound of nothingness? ‘In the desert,’ wrote Balzac, somewhere, ‘there is all and there is nothing. God is there and man is not.” ­—Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
