“The desert is indescribable. Reality rushes into it, rapid light. The gaze melts. Yet this morning. Very young, I was already crying over humanity. With every new year I could see it dissolving in hope and in violence. (..) Then would come the pink, the rust and the grey among the stones, the mauve and the light of dawn.” —Nicole Brossard, “Mauve Desert” (1987)
