Once upon a time there was a blind Touareg writer called Omar. He lived in the Sahara. The Sahara is a big place.
One day a Vietnam Veteran showed up. Then 9/11 happened. It was chance, aptitude and timing.
"Whoops!" said, Omar, "looks like a heavy, deep real shift in global perspectives."
"Yes," said Mr. Point. "Let's travel together with world tribes and collect stories. Let's weave history, legend and myth into an epic."
"Ok," said Omar. After living in Morocco for six weeks they moved to Cadiz, Spain and found a writing room for a month. They moved to Grazalema, a remote mountain village. They wove tribal tales into a fabric filled with laughter, curiosity, and spiritual awareness.
