Nature’s masterful work of art!


Ripple marks are a series of ridges produced on the sand by the action of wind, a current of water or waves. (Merriam Webster dictionary)

Thanks to Brian of Bushboys World, otherwise I would have never known the meaning of this word.

Desert ripple marks

In the photo I have given, the ripple marks are due to the action of the wind.

It’s said to be a soothing scene- the gentle undulations of these ripple marks create a calming effect on the viewer.

Is not Mother Nature wonderful?

This breathtaking natural vista is a testament to the beauty and majesty of nature and masterful artwork.

Have you ever visited a desert?

Individual experiences and feelings are subjective.

I assure you, you will be overwhelmed!

You may feel a sense of awe at the vast space.

Some of you may even become uneasy! Just imagine being alone in the middle of a desert with no water and hot Sun above!

If one is lost in the desert, what are one’s thoughts?

Can you find peace and tranquillity, as many poets describe in their romantic poetries?

Or you will be extremely happy because there is no nuisance of noise?


“Desert… is a very good place to find yourself. Or lose yourself”.

Maynard James Keenan

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. Have I visited the desert? Yes, the northern Sahara while on holiday in Tunisia many years ago. It was vast and it was amazing to watch the sunset from there. We stayed overnight in an Oasis hotel which was lovely, but everything really was dark. I wish I had thought more to appreciate being able to see the stars now.

    My main memories are how much camels fart and being really disgusted by the way animals were cages and treated in a ‘zoo’ we visited. I protested, refused to watch the poor animals suffer, told the owner what I thought and waited in the bus for my party to return.

    1. Thank you, Brenda for sharing your desert experience.
      Yes. It’s worth trying to watch stars when there is not much dust pollution and the sky is clear.
      The feeling is Heavenly!
      Haha! ‘Fart’ memories😀
      And you are so kind to animals and sensitive of them being tortured.
      It’s a sad state of affairs as far animal are concerned.
      Glad to know that you are animal lover.
      From ancients days people derive pleasure by torturing animals.
      Ours is a cruel world and remains so till the end of Earth.

  2. As a desert person, I can say the desert can be a soothing place to be, especially when you take the time to appreciate its unique beauty. But it’s not all peace and tranquillity in the desert. It can be a harsh and unforgiving place, where survival is a daily struggle. It’s a place of extremes, where the beauty and the danger are in equal measure. It is a amazing post!

    1. Thank you Anushree Vaishnav, for your wonderful thoughts.
      As I said in my post the feelings one gets when one is all alone in the desert is subjective.
      Agree with you that life is a struggle for survival and hence our earth is a place of extremes where the beauty and the danger go side by side.
      After all that is what makes life both beautiful and wretched.
