    This is the happiest existential flick I’ve ever seen —
    no apologies to woman of the dunes necessary.
    She wishes she had Esau’s cup-half-full attitude.

    Hi Melissa! Another note – have you seen the work by Janice Wright Cheney on Coy Wolves? I imagine you have, but just in case: http://spokesandpetals.wordpress.com/2012/10/14/art-craft-and-the-coy-wolf/ I think you’ll like it!

    Hi Melissa! Glad you were able to spend time in such a lovely place. It’s good to see you!

    Always love the photos with Esau!


  5. Such a nomadic setting, up and over and into the Sahara off with the camels .. Vicariously enjoy these walks with Esau.

    Woman in the Dunes haunts me to this day. I loved that movie! (I’ve never found anyone else who’s even heard of it.) So tell us, how did Esau get out….of the dunes, that is?

    Great pics!

    Dune doggy off a leash looks more like the alert shaggy creature
    he is at heart. Alone, but not lonely what with a god holding the camera.
