Saturday, August 30 2014 Wadi Simsim, Tequ’a by David Shulman 1978295_10152679866352138_8781112893773182976_o There is innocence, and there is the smug delusion of innocence. It’s not hard to tell them apart. I saw a lot of both today. Suhail was born in the tents of Wadi Simsim and has lived his whole life here, in the wadi, with the goats and the sheep.

The young owner of the shop scoops balls […]

Saturday, January 18 2014 Umm al-Ara’is, Khushiyya and Twaneh by David Shulman It’s not a good time to walk through the fields. The first, tentative green shoots are pushing up from soft soil irrigated by last month’s fierce snowfall. At Umm al-Khair, the huge field we cleared of rocks and thorns last summer is now a miracle of Irish green, wildly at odds with the browns and purples of the desert. The light is wintry, crisp, more than sufficient to highlight the gap between good and evil.   Still, we find ourselves moving rapidly through fields, stepping as lightly as we can […]
