Life's tough - while it lasts

Life can be a struggle out here in the desert. Those pesky creosotes, in taking over so much of the desert, haven't made life easy for the natives. Some don't survive. Others put up a valiant struggle against long odds and manage to barely hang in there. Like this Prickly Pear cactus.

Running With the Pack

Hardly anyone out there is going to take this seriously, but TV changes you. The kicker is that if you watch it all the time, you'll never know, which under normal circumstances ought to scare you shitless...

No amount of sermonizing will make a difference here, so I'll move on. But I'm telling you, it's true. If you disconnect from the medium long enough to stop associating certain days and times with TV shows you're used to watching, you WILL be different, with values and behavior that arise from sources you never knew existed. There is no arguing with this, you simply have to experience it.
