She is bell and he is beau.
Hello from Rue Desert.
"I'm trying to say that a house is on a deserted dirt road. According
to the dictionary, a deserted road is une rue déserte and a dirt road is
a chemin en terre. How do I combine these 2? Should I use 'chemin' or
'rue'? And which adjective comes first? Thank you!"
A: "What you have here is a dirt road, that is deserted. I would use chemin. Chemin is masculine, so désert.
Un chemin de terre désert. Sur un chemin de terre abandonné... ?" 
I am constructing environments.
locus amoenus is subversive but not private. It is not a solitary
place, locus solus, but one of sociability. Love making, singing and
even storytelling may take place here: See the shepherds of Theokrit,
the lovers of Colonna, or the meeting of a group of storytellers in a
locus amoenus, fleeing the plague in Boccaccio's Decameron.
locus amoenus is primordial and quite literary, archaic and mediated
through texts, conceived of by poets and architects: Architexture. 
The locus amoenus is a focal point of social organization. 
It consists of a basic set of recurring elements:
A Tree, A Source of Water, Sunshine, and The Song of Birds.The (Hello) Tree
a fig tree, is said to have aphrodisiac effects and is also associated
with a tendency to attract suicides. Only after Adam and Eve eat from
the tree of knowledge in the Garden of Eden do they become aware of
their own nudity.
The hands of the tree said hi to me. That was obvious.
exhibition animates a linguistic presence in its environment, yet not
one that heavy-handedly carries out a modern conflict of signification
and the loss of words’ symbolic power. It is the language of poetry that
is active. It has a secret intimacy with the Tree, Sun, Water, who say
Hello, and wave their hands. It is a language where form bears meaning
and therefore can still relate to the natural world as a place that we
talk to.
