"The desert sun lacks no luster nor brightness. Shining brightly down on the people who thrive on its beauty below, it bronzes us until we have beads of sweat trickling down our foreheads. The brightness and immense force of the sun is a metaphor for the people who are overwhelmingly optimistic and create a stir, or simply a trickling bead of sweat, down their competitors."
