Where there's water, life is possible. True, it may be very difficult and very hard to live, depending, but anyone who's driven, hiked, or camped in the American South West will have noticed that cities and ranches crop up where there's surface water or where there's been a well dug. Within the state of California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado, there are deserts, mesas, mountains, and forests where normally people never or rarely visit; not-so-secret places where there's water, access to a road within a day's hike, and where a fairly rugged individual may hide while remaining basically healthy, marginally well fed, and reasonably sane.

VoiceDraw is a drawing program designed to be controlled using only one's voice. Since no mouse, keyboard or stylus is required, it can be used by people with various forms of motor impairments to express themselves creatively. VoiceDraw is built upon the Vocal Joystick engine in order to process "non-linguistic vocal parameters" in addition to traditional speech recognition for providing continuous and fluid control of the virtual brush. Non-linguistic vocal parameters are voice features that do not correspond to a particular word or phrase in a language, such as changes in loudness, pitch, and vowel quality. In developing the VoiceDraw application, we worked with an "electronic voice painter" named Philip Chavez who has had a spinal cord injury for over 30 years and had been creating artwork using his computer and a speech recognition software for over 15 years.
