All I Really Need Is Chocolate, But A Little Love Doesn't Hurt !

Wordless Wednesday #16 Sunset in the Desert


desert sunset

I found this picture on Google images and felt a calmness wash over me whilst I just took in the sheer beauty of it.  I grew up in Dubai and often found an escape in the desert; especially around the time of sun-set.  The desert air cools down almost the minute the sun goes into hiding; and it can get pretty chilly at night.

All I want right now is to lay back against the sands, with a hookah (or sheesha as some may know it) and just ‘chill’.  What about you ? Have you ever enjoyed the warmth of the desert ? Have you ever been camping in the desert ? It’s a lot of fun =)

very nice!! Never had any desert experiences.. unless sleeping on the beach under the stars counts ( pretty awesome nite that was!) didnt have hookah's back then , but yeah, if we had to go now.. I'm pretty sure we'd take one along too!! (Isnt it strange how we've regressed to smoking much milder stuff as we've gotten older?)

@ Ve .. sleeping under the stars in the desert is a very different experience; you have to try it sometime .. :) I've done both - desert & beach .. damn I'd give just about anything to go back to that other life of mine when I wasn't living in India :P

and oh mighty knight, go and check the #MM from this week - I think you might just appreciate it :)

@ LMW aka Layla .. thanks for dropping by my blog :) next time you are at a desert, try to sleep out in the open (or stay out till as late as you can - its honestly a very different experience) .. and yes it is #WW but I like to be a bit different ;)

@ Ve .. hunni, I was so chilled last night (read exhausted) that I practically passed out laptop switched on, lights left on, after writing my lil' comment :P and I'd purposely left out not commenting on the picky part hahaha

and yes, bare yourself on a public forum .. I'll never be able to see the buff bod, but at aleast I can read the words that make up this intense soul that is just You :P

Don't you forget that I've now got 500+ words of commentary from you which could be the start of a new blog revolution 'The Knight Ve Want' ;) so ha I got that on the table :P

Ve said...

@daze... I was wondering about you not responding bout the picky part. Thot maybe you didnt get it.. not as quick on the uptake as I thot you were.. (just kidding!) :D

well.. as far as answering goes, trust me on this one.. I'm just gonna bore your readers, who fyi would be much more interested in your answers! and 'Blog revolution'? 'The Knight Ve want'?? LOL You're on fire today, arent you? :) Tho... thats what you got on the table? My 500+ words? hmmm..
