the beautiful sun is quickly rising over the steep hills surrounding Port-au-Prince and the city is slowly waking up, still unsure of what today will be ... thank you for the perfect post to wake up to this morning .. People taking to the streets brings it home. There are some very angry people this side too, i am wondering when the Haiti elections 2010 will find some closure. We are kept in our houses to keep us safe so your clever analysis / comment and illustrations in your blog help me to start to piece some thoughts together ...

Keep em coming .. your posts (are starting to) make a lot of sense ... I love escaping into them .. particularly like when you introduced the fantasy world of Tenggren, also check out John Bauer ..

your Inshallah

Did you hear she has a new album out?
