“What draws us into the desert is the search
for something intimate in the remote.”
For me was the early morning desert safari during our visit to Dubai the ultimate serenity experience I had so far.
We were pick up 05.00am at our hotel … it was dark outside and chilly. After a 40 min drive we sitting there on blankets waiting for the sunrise … drinking Arabic coffee.
It truly felt like we 10 (2 cars) were the only people in the world. Not a sound … nothing!!!
I can’t interpret in words … how I felt and how strong the experience was for me. Tom Hanks quotes below explains some of it.
“The desert, when the sun comes up.
I couldn’t tell where heaven stopped and the Earth began.”
“A desert is a place without expectation.”
As cloud for the post I have a chosen a song by title “I was very hard” (محمد هشام رجب) preformed by a young Egyptian singer by name Mohamed Hesham Ragab. I know nothing about th song or the singer, more than I love the soft tone the music has.
