Thoughts from a man who knew the desert as well as anyone...

"Quantum Sufficient"

O, I am Maynard Dixon,
And I live out here, Alone
With pencil and pen and paint-brush
And a camp stool for my throne
King of the desert country
Holding a magic key
To the World's magnificent treasure
None may unlock but me!
At times come terrible moments
When desire fills my soul,
And women and wine and cities
Seem a compelling goal:--
But I wake with a start to my desert
And it's lovely vistas unfurled--
I'd rather by Maynard Dixon,
than anyone else in the World!
