Muse/ic – “Part XIII: Chapter V – ‘O God Guide Me’ by TaliaSafa”

Excerpt from Chapter V: The wait for the calls that never came pushed us into the streets, wandering about, stopping at the shops overpowered by the sweet and spicy scents of Masala incense, carrying marble chess games, ivory elephant figurines, and ornate ashtrays.
Foreigners in a new land, we aimlessly roamed into shopping centers, sitting at tables with Nasser who enthusiastically rolled my miniature dice and made up rules with Joubin and me as we went along, buying fruits for our breakfasts, vegetables for our faithful burner, watching vendors pour pepper on clementines, watermelon, and corn, skipping about in panic from my mother’s sudden warnings, lest we step on spit, or worse.

Guidance, protection, illumination, stars..and tapping into Might & Power.  A needed prayer during our weeks in Islamabad..as well as twenty-seven years later, when I felt stuck in the same place..

Thank you TaliaSafa!
