I was delivered into the fragrant world of spices, ghee and couscous grain under the Tunisian sun; amid the scent of citrus and fruit that wafted from the orchard nearby. My father brought home the odor of ink and paper, and the excitement of newspaper-making, while the luminous, Eastern European face of my mother filled the space above my cradle with high cheekbones and immense, smiling eyes. Sometimes there was jazz in the background, sometimes classical music and four times a day the sharp call of the muezzin- and always the touch of a fuzzy blanket.
Life is circuitous, mine is no exception. No hero’s journey, but a meandering path that took me from the French diplomatic to the IT industry. From isolated beginnings to a blissful marriage and a close-knit community. Because I am perpetually amazed and amused, I choose to write about wonder; stillness and the senses, transformation and leadership; and the power, travails and humor of ordinary people.
