Fourteen Steps to Nowhere

Entry Twenty One

I feel lonely today.

I feel like I'm in the middle of a desert valley.  It's a true desert.  There's nothing in this desert.  Trees can't exist here, not enough water.  Bushes, grass, any sign of life is a rare sight.  The sun, lifegiving in other areas, kills here.  Any animals here only survive during the night or underground, but even living underground is a risk.  The ground is dry here and crumbles easily.

In the distance, the earth rises, trapping the desert and all its inhabitants.  The mountains are also brown with little to no recognizable signs of life.  The sky is bright blue in the center but fades towards the horizon.  Everything is faded here in the center of the day.  Everything is faded.
