I didn’t follow the directions. And then I walked all day in the desert. I found a spider. And a post that said Old Spanish Trail. I found balloons, deflated, that maybe flew there all the way from Las Vegas. Then I found Double Negative, by Michael Heizer, a big trench dug in the edge of Mormon Mesa in Nevada. It is art. I took my clothes off, and I ran around, and my camera took this photo.
