TDB, April 3, 2008

the author, Janine Latus, tells a very difficult, and emotionally painful story of her life, and that of her family, in this book. She writes about the emotional and physical abuse in some of her own relationships. In addition to this, tells the readers about her beloved youngest sister, who was senselessly murdered on the 4th of July, 2002, by her free-loading, ex-con, live-in, boyfriend. Although I've never lost a sister to a physically violent death, I have lost a close friend through this crime. I cannot imagine how painful it was for the author to write her story and open up all these wounds again. ....
I read this book in one day, in one sitting.

West of Kabul, East of New York: An Afghan American Story by Tamim Ansary
West of Kabul, East of New York: An Afghan American Story

TDB, March 9, 2008

The writer Tamim Ansary writes the book very vividly, and makes you feel there, especially if you listen to the audiobook, which he narrates himself. Makes you appreciate his family and their differences/choices from one another, and also to love the warmth of the Afghani people.
An excellent autobiography/biography.
...Interesting tidbit I hadn't previously known, was that he had ever lived here in Portland and even attended Reed College, back in his "hippy" days. (These are just briefly mentioned though). Overall a great read.

the first documentary film to go 'behind the scenes' and film touring/performing (American) bellydancers. Interesting watch for those interested in art of bellydance or of interest to many liking some other styles of dance.

The first of the "Bellydance Superstars" performance videos. This is of the dancers doing two each individual dance performances. Breathtakingly elegant and colorful to watch.
