Desolate Beauty: A Contemplation of the Desert
BY DAVID MORRISON
@ VOL 16
ON JUN 29, 2017
Contemplative writer David Morrison and Monk Drums (El Paso vol.11) creator Jacob Neria takes us on a journey of of sound, image, and spoken word celebrates a vision of desert spirituality.
As David explains, there is a beauty that can be experienced in the scarcity of desert if we come to it with contemplative eyes. The word, “contemplation,” in Latin, means to “gaze intently upon.” It’s possible to walk in desert landscapes and witness its emptiness until a stunning beauty arises. And further, this beauty begins to gaze into the beholder, and one is transformed forever. In the Irish language, “to contemplate,” means to place oneself at the “edge of waiting.” The desert is a liminal space on the edge of what’s familiar, and it draws and enchants those who dare to walk in its kenotic embrace.
The images are not professionally shot nature photos, but rather the simple snapshots of a lifelong desert walker. The haikus are not literary as much as they are experiential. Mary Oliver sums it up perfectly: "Every day I walk out into the world / to be dazzled, then to be reflective."
David Morrison and Jacob Neria are members of Desert Rain Community, a contemporary community of Christian contemplative monks located outside El Paso in Chaparral, NM.

Yagoda Galo (Halo-Berry) – is a band from Arkhangelsk
Yagoda Galo (Halo-Berry) – is a band from Arkhangelsk, considering and performing music as a life adventure. The sound of the band is created with a virtuosic domra (Russian folk string instrument), emotional rhythm section and original sound effects. Yagoda Galo style is a mix of fancy tunes, expression, lyric and dance energy. Presenter: Nick Vymorkov The band unites original and professional musicians: Nick Vymorkov - voice, acoustic guitarVera Larushina - domraSlava Pronin - bass, sound processorsOleg Chaikovsky - drumsArtur Rozhkov – percussion synthesizers, samplers In 2008 Yagoda Galo was nominated for an award of a significant international ethno-music festival Sayan Ring in Siberia. The committee of the festival includes representatives of Russia, Tuva, Khakassia and Yakutia, famous musicians and producers. Since then the band takes part in many different events in Russia – from small regional festivals to the largest Russian independent music festival Empty Hills. Since 2009 Yagoda Galo has realized an amazing DREAMBOAT TOUR – a tour through the country by car. The band covered in total more than 100000 km (twice the length of the Earth equator, about 1/4 of distance from the Earth to the Moon), performing in most of regional capitals in North-West and Central part of Russia, and to the Ural mountains. On the basis of the received concert experience and communication with musicians with different national background the band Yagoda Galo got an idea to prepare a concert program, representing Arkhangelsk regional culture and creating an image of the White Sea and the Russian North. As a result, in 2010-2012 Yagoda Galo recorded an album, named POLAR– a vivid compilation of originally arranged traditional and author’s songs. The band plans to publish and make a presentation of the album POLAR in spring 2013.
