Magic. Literal magic. The food with hidden love potions. The flirting shadows. The coal to snow contrasts. The love of cats. The ghost filled mountains. The grace and polite society. The fearlessness. The trance. The wild remorseless thunderpounding of the tides on the west coast cliffside beaches. The medinas with more hidden pathways than the mind. Those stories beating beneath the shade of the jellabas hood and those of the veils. The blood streaming through the streets like a lost desert river. Psychic communities.

    Dear Jamal. I just had to write to say thank Allah for you. You have so cheered me up. I'm coming to Marrakech and Essaouira in Feb. My lack of french is causing me disquiet. Will it be a major problem. Regards Toni
