Nice painting. Belated Happy Birthday David.

Writing from the ME it's a little scary especially with deaths in Bahrain yesterday. I know Qatari's who are worried about implications. Normally, I spend time telling my American friends how safe and unlike the media portrayal it is here. NOW it does feel unsafe because of the "jubilation" of people power and unknown consequences.

Yes, people got their voice heard, but Egypt is now a military state - a far cry from democracy. It will take a while to find out if this revolution will end like the Iranian or German revolutions. (sorry political head on)

David Lobenberg said...

You are correct, Sue...the situation in Egypt and the middle east is very unsettled. The story in Egypt hopefully will have a happy democratic ending. The hard work there begins. Revolutions are always messy, and don't necessarily have happy endings. Stay safe, and keep me in the loop.
