There was something about this painting that I loved so much that I had to write a description of the tree and of the specific atmosphere surrounding it. This small piece of writing kept growing until I started adding in descriptions of other scenery that I saw and found compelling; eventually I also added in two more narrators, who helped point the story in a more focused direction.

In many ways, this book is a portrait of my Arizona: writing was my opportunity to preserve so many of the views of nature I have come across here and to give a sense of theme to the everyday.(less)
