I’m going to Egypt on Monday, scared. I will be fine, I think. I have friends of friends on the ground in Cairo, and I make new friends wherever I go. There are opportunities to explore Dubai, Petra Cliffs at Jordan, or Luxor, Egypt while I am there.

Life answers you. Your questions, the willful calling of your energy, out into space. Life surprises us. I was on a tour bus last night, with Dave Chappelle. It was a Monday, I wasn’t supposed to be there, but I did that.
Life gives us gifts. Promises, wishes, and serious laughs. Sometimes, we give everything and it doesn’t work, that’s how it happens. Love finds you, true.
America’s best kept secret is the optimism of her people.
