Beyond the ninth desert

Desert is the infinity of possibilities. The infinity of visions, dreams and desires. Deserts are rich in treasures, full of hope, so full that it is sometimes even difficult to walk in its golden abundance. The people walk there with difficulty through forests of ghosts who observe them and whisper to them an exquisite future and dreamlike memories.

And you, what is your desert? What awaits you beyond the desert? What do you glimpse there? Reveal to us the desert of your soul, and your heart!
