An Indian woman took Charlie Parker out into the desert and told him the desert was alive, that each and every plant had a life force within. She stood him near a bush and told him to calm himself, and that he could feel the vibration of the plant. He closed his eyes and he could feel the plant being alive. A few days ago after hurrying across the desert to spot a sunset, I came across this cholla cactus waiting out the last few moments of the day. I set up focusing on the plant and set the exposure. Then I calmed myself and closed my eyes to experience these vibrations, and sure enough, I could.
