Today, I received a pleasant surprise in the form of an artwork by Amazigh Moroccan painter and friend, Boulouta Ahmed. A rich orange ochre spans much of the painting, a reminder of Sahara’s infinite shifting sands and honey-gold skies. Palm trees crown the oasis below, their dark silhouettes obscuring the buzz of life that surrounds them.

Tenere taqhim tossam. It is the jealous desert that guards the oasis, our home, with all its heart.
