Watching The Sky

I’ve been looking up at the sky way more since I came to the desert - the sunsets here aren’t just something far in the distance, they wrap around you like you’re being tucked into bed with a blanket of colour and light, the light in the air is more like water, it feels like you should be able to swim through it, the clouds hang in a different space to where they are at home in England.
At Muley Point I found this tuft of reeds springing out from the rock and decided to weave it into a bed and telescope for watching the sky. I kind of felt like I was floating in space, looking out into the universe with the surface of the moon on my back.
