omg Hatim, you are beyond generous. you know how much i completely adore you, your writing, your sublime storytelling. your voice is incredible!
It is esthetically ugly beyond a normal person’s ability to countenance. Just stay out of the damned mess and keep your mouth shut.
it’s always been such a pleasure working with you and i’m always only an email away.
edit: gamal, i just read your comment. seriously, i’m so blown away, you guys are going to make me cry.
Misterioso, lagavulin, Citizen, i should have called you out by name. thank you, each and everyone. Kate, kay, just, bintbiba, mooser, RoHa, marnie, danaa, hostage, sibiriak, keith, shingo, talknic, iris, lillian, susan, karen, carol, helena!, eljay!, rico, MRW (may you rest in peace), seafoid, niko, jw, genesto, kathy, steve, iris.. too many to call out (thank you for you emails) and that doesn’t begin to cover it. i never would have met rawan, refaat, yousef, fidaa, tamam, so many to name and still i fall short. i’m still going to be around, really. i feel like we’re a team here, like we’re in this together. much love to everyone. it’s a tough love being in this activism. phil, heart and soul.
