“The Turkish Market”

“They walked down a narrow market alley with high, vaulted, stone ceilings. Cooing doves serenaded them as they passed stalls piled high with figs, oranges, dates, and raisins; with elaborately decorated shoes and simple slippers; with heaped spice mounds of red and black pepper, thyme, mint, cumin, sumac, bay leaf, and cinnamon; with candies of all sorts and sizes: Turkish Delight, halvah, baklava, akide sugar candy, and macun toffee paste; with lamps designed to sit and to hang, fashioned of glass in bright colors, of brass with intricately etched decorations, and of simple pottery; and with carpets of elaborate design woven in hues soothing to the heart and mind.”

Richard Maddox

Richard Dietrich Maddox's writing focuses on the search for permanent happiness, the goal of finding paradise on earth, the attainment of human Enlightenment. His work, though fiction, attempts to convey the profound spiritual Truth passed on to humanity by Enlightened Masters. Maddox approaches spiritual wisdom from a Western level of experience, presenting characters to whom readers can easily relate, offering situations in which readers might well have found themselves. His work offers, in a style which those living in the West will find understandable, the possibility of blissful existence.
