"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Ali, The Keeper of the Boiled Eggs

A portrait of my friend, Ali

Snapped this one on the last morning of our stay in Najaf. His name is Ali, and he taught me pretty much all the Arabic I know—which is very little. He also brought our boiled eggs for breakfast. Nice kid.
