Letter to a Teacher

  I’ve always expressed my appreciation for the teaching profession. Educators have a great responsibility for the creation of  well-rounded, literate individuals. Many of my friends are teachers (in the literal sense; I’m leaving out parents here), and every single one of them instructs with a passion not just to teach but to learn from […]

Notes & Doodles|Green Caravan Film Festival 2010

I’m patting myself on the back for volunteering to do some booth work at the Green Caravan Film Festival starting tomorrow. Of course what I will be doing there is nothing compared to the organizational efforts put forth by the festival’s founders Sandra Al-Saleh and Reham Al-Samerai. The event is free of charge. And of course […]
