storytelling, travel tales

Some of the great moments of my life…

Greece2001Knosos425

… in no particular order:

  • Watching a crescent moon rise between the minarets of the Blue Mosque, Istanbul
  • Meeting Yosef across a campfire in the desert – Wadi Rum, Jordan
  • Waking up on the Paris to Nice train and seeing Provence (the land of my heart) for the first time
  • After 20 years of waiting, coming face to face with the Emperor’s warriors – Xian, China
  • Walking down, from the hills and goat paths, along a high walled village lane. An old man’s head appears over one wall. He reaches out, shakes the boughs of his fruit tree and showers me with tiny ripe, sweet, pink and white fruit. I gather some up, thank him and walk on – Naxos, Greece
  • Waking up and walking under the starry skies and full moon of the desert night – Wadi Rum, Jordan
  • After (a different) 20 years of waiting, finally visiting the ruins of Knossos, Greece and Pompeii, Italy
  • Shaking hands with the Dalai Lama
  • Performing Tai Chi with little old ladies in the misty early morning – Tiantan Park, Beijing, China
