You know, the objective of the project has already been you know, the statement has been made, that there are crosses here in the desert, that 3,000 people have died, and then a whole bunch missing. But for me, going out every Tuesday, it has become my meditation, my going to church, my you know, I'm not a believer. I'm not a I don't follow any religion or anything. But this gives me the opportunity to connect with whatever spiritual thing is happening here. So this is my this has become part of my life.
