In Arizona, Jim Corbett - a philosopher, ecologist and Sanctuary activist - used to take folks into the desert for a retreat. He called it “goat walking” because the little group would take only a bedroll and a few goats to supply them with milk, their only food. For the first few days the city folk would be depressed and desolate. They’d perceive nothing in the desert but parched barrens, bleached out colors, the lack of life. But, about the third or fourth day, they’d get “desert eyes.” They would begin to see life in the desert - flowers, lichens, seeds, animals, a full spectrum of color by day and wondrous stars by night. They’d begin to understand that even in the most desperate of times - even in times of great evil and death - there is still life and hope.
