About Jules Torti:

My grade 12 English teacher once indicated that my writing was like a white water rafting adventure instead of a smooth paddle on a calm lake. I didn’t see anything wrong with that. I still don’t.

About Alphabet Soup:

It’s a love affair with Africa, about here and there, and the spaces in between. It’s the exploration of physical landscapes and the emotional geography that unfolds the map in new directions each day. Oblivious to elevation, time zones and temperature, the questions that arise in those journeys become answers here, in the company of words.


• Alphabet Soup is most frequently visited by women 25-34 who have no children, have received some college education and browse this site from home

• Most visitors are from the US, followed closely by Canada, Australia and 1.75% in Guam!

    • Thanks, Sherry. I also write for our industry mag, Massage Therapy Canada. My column is generally about quirky spa treatments around the world and the people behind the profession. I love the stories behind the hands!
