Four and a half hours away from Las Vegas, in the heart of the Utah desert, where the stone slot canyons glow red at sunset, I’m finding inspiration. I’m out of my comfort zone, away from my known world. My cell phone doesn’t get a good signal and the wifi isn’t working. I’m a foreigner here in an unearthly landscape of glowing space rocks, desert cacti, lizards, and sandstone formations. The tiny flies and bigger bugs that swarm the candlelight at night are the only things that remind me I’m not alone. It’s quiet here. I have time to think.
