Desert Infinite

" What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well." - Antoine de Saint-Exupery (French Pilot, Writer and Author of 'The Little Prince', (1900-1944)

Deserts are the only place I know of, that can give me absolute peace! Hot, barren, desolate deserts. I do not know about cold deserts; as I haven't been to any. Mountains and valleys too, can give one peace; and the sea and oceans have their own way of giving peace. But jungles, of which I have been to many - rarely give me that absolute peace. Maybe, it's because of the fear of animals both large and tiny, that makes it almost impossible for me to achieve peace in a jungle.
Though I love the sea, oceans and the coast tremendously, I love being deep inland in mountains and valleys even more. I love islands too, but being on a small island, deep in the sea, can be rather - intimidating. Still, I do love deserts most! Space? Up there in outer space? I would love to give that a try!
