Despite the harsh heat and light of the day, the evenings here have a soft quality about them. It is not tropical, because there is not the humidity here, but it is sort of like a talcum powder softness - like you are rubbing the talc in your fingers...

Of course, that is what it usually feels like after a dust storm. The dust being so fine feels like talc. When you rub your hands together it feels like they are sliding over themselves with some kind of graphite lubricant.

Anyway, the night is soft and quiet, and the moon is almost full. Glistening.
