News & Opinion About Palestine, Israel & the United States
I am a mid-age retired professional, living in rural Colorado. I have always been interested in global music and global news. I stumbled into Mondoweiss after stumbling into Mohammed Assaf and the Arab Idol program thru news links. Since then, I have voraciously perused the internet educating myself on the middle east, Palestine, and the culture. I very much appreciate the writing of Annie Robbins and all who contribute news to Mondoweiss. All of these things made me want to join. I am trying to educate those around me about the middle east and Palestine in particular, but it is not easy. As far as retirement, economics dictate that I continue working, but wages and jobs in small towns in rural America are definitely lacking. I have a small property with home, animals, chickens, geese, gardens, etc.. a back to the land and simple lifestyle. I live in a beautiful part of the country, in the middle of Colorado. I am grateful to be able to do that. I spent 30 years in the Bay Area of California. I am grateful for that experience as well. Times change and here I am.
