An Escati Moment by Nate

A wind, unrestrained by the terrain and celebrated only by Maghrebi nomads, trickles through the desert north of Merzouga.

It is a frigid wind, quickly castigated by a vivid sun sharply rising over the sand. Standing on a summit of sand, I am enveloped by light; transfixed by a sight which, an instant previous, was a dark and vacuous space unpainted by the heavens. At any distance, I am staring at a world far removed from all and everything I have known but yet I understand it.

It is Escati. A singularity which drives not only adventure, but understanding. I relinquish the dune to the wind and depart on camel, eager for Berber tea and spirited song.
