"He was one of the earth's oddlings--
one of the wandering few
who deny restraint and scorn inhibition.
His life was a quest
for the new and the fresh.
Beauty was a dream.
He pursued his dream into
desert solitudes--
there with the singing wind to chant
his final song."
--Hugh Lacy in On Desert Trails
