A poet of the invisible world


That photo was taken by me in the Madrasa Bou Inania in Fes, Morocco. My recent reading has included Michael Golding's novel A Poet of the Invisible World which treats the antithetical subjects of homosexuality and Sufism with admirable sensibility and sensitivity. On my peripatetic iPod the transient Habibiyya with their album If Man But Knew fulfill the role of sonic poets of the invisible world.
