IN THE DESERT WINTER NIGHT





















Image by S. Auberle

"In the desert winter night, good and warm
in a duck down bag, the silence is so intense
that you can hear your own blood roar in your ears.
But louder than that by far is the mysterious roar
which I always identify with the roaring
of the diamond of wisdom, the mysterious roar
of silence itself, reminding you of something
you seem to have forgotten
in the stress of the days since birth."
- Jack Kerouac
