My friend Joel Patrick is studying for two weeks in Oxford, England. He and his wife, Gabrielle, are good friends. I love the following picture that he took of a storefront in Oxford. Habibi is the Arabic word for "friend" or "dear friend."
For whoever is interested: The musician and peace activist Michael Franti composed a simple song called "Habibi" while on a trip to Iraq and the Palestinian territories for his film, I Know I'm Not Alone. The song delighted locals with its simple, friendly message.
