Beneath the hot, scorching sun in the desert,
lies one world.
It’s a place filled with thirst, hunger, and a will to be free from the sun.
The sun traps whoever she lays eyes on.
She takes them as prisoner
and boils them to the bone.
But there is a place.
A place of refuge.
A secret place.
An enchanted place.
This place is in the shade of the Saguaro Cactus.
In the shade, thirst, hunger, and the will to be free from the sun melt away.
Beneath the sun, lies one world, one place.
Beneath the Saguaro Cactus, lies another.
This new place is a place for weary travelers.
It’s for those who wish to escape the first world.
This is an enchanted place.
This is a place beyond your wildest dreams.
For those who do not find it, they are the unlucky ones.
They become the sun’s prisoner,
and they are boiled to the bone.
But those who are able to find it, find life.
They find what they’ve been wanting most.
So when you’re trapped by the hot, scorching sun,
remember this:
You can find refuge.
You can find life.
It’s all in an enchanted place,
in the shade of the Saguaro Cactus.
There, you will live.
But the question is:
Can you find it?
