Ghani's Words Not Mine

Ok, I've been remiss ... posting to my blog has been low on the priority list due to my work load. Soon I'll post up some things from my Lebanon Trip, I promise ... for now just a nice quote from Mohammed Ghani, one of Iraqis legendary artists. Many sculptures both in Iraq and in the region are his work.

Iraqi art is brilliant" Ghani said. "Many people say that Iraq is finished. But Iraq is not finished. Iraq is like… (he searched for the word running his hand in a sweeping gesture over the floor). Iraq is like grass. The more you cut it, the more it will grow. The regime is finished, Saddam Hussein is finished. But not the people … not Iraq. - Mohammed Ghani, Iraqi Artist
