I don’t often put photos of myself up here, but for World Beard Day I couldn’t resist and this blog needs some ocasional whimsy. It’s been over six years since I was last clean-shaven. The left is for my former school’s yearbook for 2014 in Nouakchott and the right is from about a year ago when we moved to Germany.
We know that there is no help for us but from one another, that no hand will save us if we do not reach out our hand. And the hand that you reach out is empty, as mine is. You have nothing. You possess nothing. You own nothing. You are free. All you have is what you are, and what you give. — Ursula Le Guin
