My first travel piece came flowing spontaneously out of my brain. I had difficulty keeping up with the flow as I wrote it down. Very little tweaking or rewriting. I had talked about the experiences it portrayed so often, it was as if the piece was already well rehearsed.
Currently I am working on a series of articles featuring a spiritual journey through India. I will be visiting various mosques, temples, and other holy sites during January and February 2014. We are starting with a stop in Dubai and will visit the big mosque there, which offers tours to non-Muslims. The idea is to see what spiritual energy exists in these places and to experience it firsthand. I am anticipating writing a series of about 8 articles and am looking for ideas of where to send them. Let me know what you think. I am thinking travel editors of Sunday papers, Indian newspapers, and so forth. Any contacts, names, email addresses, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
