I defy you to tell me that doesn't look like a desert.
I'm going to the "desert" of SW Iowa--Creighton's retreat center--to do an eight day Ignatian retreat as part of my spiritual direction training. Prayers appreciated for a good retreat, good travel, and my family's health and good humor, while I am gone from Jan 26-Feb 3.
Some retreat music in the MP3 player at left. I particularly like "I will make this day my prayer."
Peace and all good, IC
