  • Photo by Jo Ann Tomaselli on the outskirts of the ancient city of Jaisalmer which is located in the district of Rajasthan. “The camel grunted, the driver smiled and as he clicked his tongue and shook sand from his shoes these two partners, the mammal and the man, put on a delightful show; they danced in the desert just for me!  The camel drivers & their camels live in a small Bedouin village in the Thar Desert on the boarder between India and Pakistan. Daily, a small group of drivers leave their home and journey across the vast outdoor landscape of sand and sun, bringing traditional transportation to adventure seeking tourists such as myself. After a long day of exploration, I dismounted my dromedary to take in the vastness of the dry eastern desert and watch the sunset. And that’s when they did it! They started dancing!”

Monday Morning Wake-Up Call

Like when an off-duty ballet dancer steps on the subway and everyone’s head turns,

influencing us to readjust our posture and perhaps reconsider our whole lives.

Just like that.
