“If this were so; if the desert were ‘home’; if our instincts were  forged in the desert; to survive the rigours of the desert - then it is  easier to understand why greener pastures pall on us; why possessions  exhaust us, and why Pascal’s imaginary man found his comfortable  lodgings a prison.”     ―       Bruce Chatwin,            The Songlines
