I’m excited to announce that my blog post, A Call to Prayer: Morocco, was recently published online in Wanderlust: A Travel Journal.
During my trip to Morocco, I was struck by the religious imperative to pray five times a day. Of course, I had no idea that two years after this trip, many of us would be sheltering-in-place with multiple opportunities to pause and consider how our lives are inextricably connected. On the other side of the coronavirus pandemic–whatever that looks like–one thing is clear: we will never be the same.
If we pause to prayer, to dream, to imagine, perhaps we can repair the broken and create a world that is compassionate and just. A world of peace and plenty for all.
I also invite you to read my most recent blog post, Introverts Have the Edge: A Virus Teaches Us How to Spend Time Alone and my National Indie Excellence award-winning novel, Thin Places.
Wishing you all safe travels at home.

Born in that region, I left too early to acquaint myself with its many marvels.
YSL loved artistry in all its forms, apparently.
Thank you for sharing sacred encounters.
