Almost by chance, I find myself In Morocco. A planned journey through Spain has led to an impromptu trip to this enchanting country. Once here, I meet up with Christine, a friend of thirty-five years. She has come from Germany, and we meet in Tangier.
I call my travels “a working vacation.” Having finished my book, it is now with Marty, my editor. Ending my lease in Santa Fe allowed for the opening of new doors and new experiences. What better place to call home but the open road, filled with fresh sights, sounds, experiences, and memories in the making. While Marty edits, I travel. It is in Morocco when the first email arrives; he’s finished the editing, and it’s time to make the final revisions together. Our time difference offers the perfect scenario: I’ll travel and explore during the day, while Marty sleeps, and we’ll talk at night, which is day for him. This works out especially well in Spain and Morocco, where late nights are the norm. My internal clock has adjusted to this new rhythm.
