This photo is absolutely precious.

The Atlantic has a great photo essay about Eid al_Adha.

Kim I have to agree. This little girl's face is angelic.

I stared at her picture for the longest time and thought about her life in Gaza under Israel's boot.

I showed the moms the picture and added an existential lament.

I said "I wish my life had been different and I had a daughter just like her to take to mosque on Eid."

Well I do have the terrible twins and Founder. Love them rascals even when they chewing the hell out of everything (Founder just looks on).

Did I tell you Boo Boo chewed the rubber mudguards off my car?

I know - just follow the river.

Thanks for your comment.
