Welcome to my blog! I’m so happy that you’ve found this corner of cyberspace where I’ve decided to post some thoughts. I write about poetry, politics, power, the Middle East, art openings, events, concert, movie reviews, random things that catch my attention and before now had no idea what to do with. Rants, questions, comments, blurbs as well as more developed pieces will be posted. Comments are encouraged. With this blog, I hope to inspire debate on a variety of issues, some closer to my heart than others. If you know me, you know how much I like to read and write and these blog entries will contain little quotes and gems from books, movies, conversations and links on the Internet for your viewing and discussing pleasure.
Please stay tuned as I am still figuring things out, mostly related to links and formatting. I have uploaded some old essays from a course on contemporary US Politics for you to read while you wait. 
Please comment and enjoy
