It is possible to be Muslim and also suffer at the hands of terrorists. It is possible to be a non-American fighting for the American dream.
It is possible to be different and the same.

I'm going to do my best to post on a more regular basis. And I'll post on a variety of topics - crafting, travel, design, and doors.
