In God’s Country

Before U2 wrote their massive hit album, The Joshua Tree, they read Raymond Carver’s short stories. Then they holed themselves up in a motel in the California desert and wrote their masterpiece about life in America.

I, too, have just finished a book of short stories by Carver, just visited the desert, and recently spotted Bono and The Edge eating at a restaurant in New York. Meaning: I am now awaiting divine inspiration to start my award winning novel. In the meantime, some photos of Joshua Tree National Park:

The blue belly means he’s a male, and he’s looking for love.
