On the long trail (Morocco): Sleepless nights

Your body: «Your body is not yours, it belongs to the herd.»

Goats, camels, humans, trails, mountains, valleys, grasses, rainfalls. They all weigh the same in the thin agdal air. Humans long abandoned the pretense to rule over elements. At night, it’s the shepherds who need to cut their dreams short to gather the animals of their herd from wandering off into the faint moonlight, under the stars polka dotting the dark with their sparkling eyes.
