Hello Desert of my Eye readers! I am happy to announce that Desert of my Eye will be expanding across the Southwest desert! There are many reasons for this. Mostly because of personal changes in my life, but it also gives me the opportunity to talk about other people and subjects on this site.
My main focus will always be la frontera of El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, but this expansion will also allow me to spread my message about la frontera as I meet different people across the Southwest.
I will not be posting as often, but I will be providing different types of content! If anyone has any suggestions for topics/artists/bands/restaurants let me know! As I have mentioned before, my main focus is to bring a positive light on la frontera whether it be through art, music or the culture there.
However being that la frontera is in the Southwest, it has some things in common with other cities across the beautiful Southwest desert, which brings me to the Seven Magic Mountains located in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Throughout my life I have heard people say stuff like, "the desert is so hot and boring", or "it' only sand and cactus" or "it just looks brown". It's comment like those, which make me think "am I crazy for loving the desert, loving every cactus, loving every nopal, loving every sunset or any little details of it?"
I mean it's all a matter of preference, but I think that there is something so beautiful and peaceful about it. Today, as I drove towards the Seven Magic Mountains I could not help, but be mesmerized by the clear blue sky and the desert landscape. As I got closer to this art installation called the Seven Magic Mountains, I could not help but be in awe at how these colorful neon rocks contrasted with the desert background. There where people from all over to see these very cool rocks. It's honestly not only a pretty sight, but it's also the perfect spot for a nice Instagram picture. There were some people that were definitely ready for the "gram".
If you are driving past Vegas, I definitely recommend that one stop here. It's a nice spot to really take a nice picture, but also reflect on one's life journey.
Can't wait to see this site grow! Thanks for understanding!
