The Days My Voice Disappeared

August 28, 2013 In Ramallah, I lose my voice. It is the second time in my life this had happened. The first time I was getting our stolen laptops back in Guatemala, but I’ll leave that story for later. Suffice it to say this time around, it wasn’t a surprise. When I first arrived at […]

The Return from Tel Aviv

September 1, 2013 I do not like to watch Tel Aviv disappear from above – the Mediterranean Sea coastline a small strip of white that barely holds us from the immensity of blue that continues as we head west on the plane. I raise the window to watch it disappear until my eyes cannot take […]

Back to the Holy Land

August 26, 2013 Last night I slept sitting up and today I floated in the Dead Sea. Knowing what I’m up against, I sleep the entire trip from Newark to Tel Aviv, no movies, no studying, just food and sleep. The crying babies are mere whispers in my Ambien-induced stupor. It is my second time […]

The Type Machine

From Jerusalem I bring back an old manual typewriter in a half torn case that cracks open the leather spine during all the security checks. Random people stare at it with familiarity or confusion, the security guards click on the keys and laugh with each other in Hebrew. Then I trek it across Jerusalem, Tel […]

Fourth Annual International Reporting Conference

It’s so refreshing to hear Amar Bakshi talk about the Washington Post’s PostGlobal site. This is good design for a multi-platform approach, definitely and in some ways is a survey-like, glorified vlog that is very sustainable in terms of cost and accessibility. It’s the essence of back-pack journalism. What would be really interesting is to […]
