Vision of a priest walking in the desert sand
Robe swept westard by the wind at her feet
Back to me she is, staff in hand
Just her and the desert and the setting sun

Beautiful vision. Is the westward direction symbolic of the expansion direction the US took when it colonized, thus meaning growth? Because I've read a lot of desert fantasy I'm reminded of New Mexico, Nevada and other western states my parents took me through as a child. Wonder if Texas has a desert and if there are retreats to be held in it.

Calm centers!

Lee: The westward wind is not symbolic of the expansion of the US.

SD asked me to think about wandering and this is the image I I need to sit with it for a while.
