|"Desert Sentinels," 5 x 7 watercolor card|
It's no accident that astrology began ages ago among the ancients in the Americas and elsewhere, such as Arabia, where people needed guides, land--"marks"-- not otherwise available to prevent being lost.
To me, another Sentinel of the deserts, of arid country, of wide open spaces, is the yucca. Many consider it just a cactus, but it is more--not just the state flower of New Mexico, but a sentinel of survival, of life, of hope...just as are stars, as was a star celebrated this season of the year.
