Red Rock Route
She is drawn to the immense desert by the search for something intimate hiding and gleaming somewhere, like an unseen flower. With the gorgeous, blue sky surrounding every step and the wide free open landscape, her soul is left without expectations. Looking at rugged mountain faces through cactuses and tumbleweeds, she can guess the earth’s skin, backbone and angles. Then suddenly – like the line between life and death - night poured over the desert. In the purple air, the stars pierced out of the sky. “All around me there was nothing but dust, rocks, and endless empty desert in all directions. The planet’s famous red color is from iron oxide coating everything. So it’s not just a desert. It’s a desert so old it’s literally rusting.” Andy Weir, The Martian Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area lies in Nevada’s Mojave Desert. It’s known for geological features such as towering red sandstone peaks and the Keystone Thrust Fault, as well as Native American petroglyphs. Panoramic viewing spots dot the 13-mile Scenic Drive. The red color of some of the outcrops of the Aztec Sandstone is due to presence of iron oxide or hematite. Exposure to the elements caused iron minerals to oxidize or “rust,” resulting in red, orange, and brown-colored rocks. Areas where the rock is buff in color may be places where the iron has been leached out by subsurface water, or where the iron oxide was never deposited.
A window in the life of a punk rock soul looking for bluer things. The beach is a wondrous place to relieve the soul-crushing stress of a night of partying and merciless encounters. Our heroine goes out with the rising sun on a sweep of sand to embrace her solitude, finding herself shedding shoes and garments. See the depth of her contentment, as she walks along the beach. She starts to live by the currents, plan by the tides and feel the breeze. As the waves lap against the shores, she is still, looks at the horizon and breathes the salty air. Her memories of the ocean will remain, long after the footprints in the sand are gone.

Missed the Stop
Look at some impressions of high-end fashion in an urban setting. She expected to weave through the crowd, dodging people and repeating "excuse me", but as she stood there dressed in a classy black skirt suit and heels, she felt out of place. Wasn’t that exciting though? That feeling of not knowing too much about something… Endless possibilities… It’s the most enlivening sensation. There are places out there and billions of questions to address, including the biggest of all: What you are truly capable of?
