In a worldwide pandemic, all is well in the high desert of Joshua Tree, California. I relocated here from Los Angeles with my partner after being frequent visitors for over twenty years. It was here where I found peace, on every excursion and now in permanence as we live our day-to-day lives in a house that borders the Joshua Tree National Park.

Sequestered in this haven, the discoveries in the news feel surreal. The number of people infected by the virus are matching the insurmountable stars in the sky. It is easy to think it’s not really happening. It’s easy to give into the peaceful solace that surrounds us while the world is seemingly going to shit.

But Joshua Tree is the place where I have become whole. It is here where I have found my mind, my imagination, and my true self. Desert people are a strange bunch. You have to be to endure these elements. It gets extremely hot, and unbearably cold. Everything slows down, and the outdoors smell better than a chocolate factory, especially after it rains.

All the plants look like a Dr. Seuss dream. There are more Joshua Trees than there are people and just as many birds. A myriad of bunnies and quail scatter our property at dusk and dawn, the bobcats and coyote run free, and now, so do I.
