I live in the middle of the desert, where the dirt is rusty red, the sun is hot, hot, hot and the stars are always bright. Every night I put bread on to bake and while my little boys are sleeping I walk through the dark night of my house, listening to the quiet and watching the moon. This is the time when stories and pictures are made inside my head. I scribble them on the back of phone bills and toilet paper because if I don’t, they disappear into the night and are forgotten when I wake in the morning to the smell of warm crusty bread.
