Do Unto Others focuses on the Middle East, (nonviolent) social movements, and how I make sense of my place in the world. I'm currently based in Cairo, Egypt doing peacebuilding and community development.

Your daily dose of Iranian wisdom

When I am sober,
I don’t feel lighthearted;
but when I’m drunk
my reason is defective.
There is a state 
between being tipsy
and clearheaded.
I’m a slave to that state
because that is life.

-Omar Khayyam
