Rainstorm across desert. Cracked earth drinks deeply, softening into moist clay. Desert springs refill and replenish. An elemental scent of awakening... dry warm mitti earth, parched grasses, dried wood, and mineralistic clay drenched in rainwater.
"What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well." - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
