You know, I still find it astonishing, somehow. Morocco. No matter how long I live here, I sometimes still find myself taken aback by its otherness.
Like I'm an outsider, looking in. Dressing the part, fitting in but never fitting in. Still fascinated.
It's the secret, of course. Continuing to be surprised by something so familiar. Like when you catch a glimpse of your long-married husband from across the room, and for a moment, you see him with new eyes. And there is a flutter, a beating of wings, somewhere deep within you.
