Morocco and Beyond!

“Journaling in the internal and external worlds”

Djemma-al-Fna

Marrakech the place of amulet makers, fortune tellers and acrobats

Travel Journal

Picture the future and write about it

With journals, cameras and art supplies, 9 of us traveled to Morocco for 12 days to see what we could learn about our own inner journey by exploring our responses to the external world. By choosing a place that was unfamiliar yet safe, fabled and a little unpredictable, what was it that we would learn about our emerging changes, attitudes, tastes and talents that could be applied to the chapters remaining to us?

That process is yet unfolding as I redesign the travel component of my work to focus on the concept of Writing for One Week in Istanbul / 2016 and Writing For a Week in Southern France Sept / Oct 2016. Please see the page bar for a full description.  Stay tuned. Email me at: kendall@kendalldudley.com
