Review with Carrot Watercolor

August 12th, 2010 by

Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, is in less than one month. So I started looking at past posts I wrote about the holiday. I have an idea for a new way to present the simanim (symbols) – I plan to post it next week.

I read Nomad by Ayaan Hirsi Ali – she has led a difficult life, and what she has to say is not easy to hear, but she is a good writer and her story is gripping. I read the book in only two days. I can’t say I agree with her conclusions, but her story of growing up in Somalia, Kenya and Saudi Arabia, then running away to Holland because she doesn’t want to marry the man her father has chosen for her is quite a tale. I amazed that she has made it as far as she has in life (at one point, she was a member of Dutch Parliament; now she is a fellow at American Enterprise Institute).

    I must get Nomad. It sounds like a book I would get engrossed in.

    Thank you for the link.

    I love the water color, as always.

    Shabbat Shalom!

  2. Thanks for linking to the recipe.
    Apparently my version of that book was called Infidel. It sounds the same. Yes, an amazing story.

  3. At least I’m reading them in the right order. . .

    Thank you for the links. Since I can’t post my own review this week and didn’t submit to HH, I appreciate all the more.
    Shabbat Shalom!
