Dear Egypt,

January 29, 2011

I was shocked to realize that I know nothing about you except for the most obvious cliches.

A pyramid.


I don’t understand what’s going in your country right now. I am ignorant and poorly informed and hopelessly culturally uneducated.


Please be well. Figure it out soon, okay?

    Exactly, Wendy!

    One thing I’ve done to minimize stress is to think, act, buy local – and to mostly ignore the news. But when I heard about Egypt this morning, I thought, “oh, that can’t be good.”

    Egypt should join you and Arizona for pie.

    Apparently they shut off all their internet though so… Egypt might not get your virtual flower. 😦

    I really like this post, simple but with so much meaning.

    I, too, haven’t followed the news very closely.

    Then this morning I read a detailed article about the unrest not only in Egypt but across most of northern Africa. How shocking… The world needs more flower-givers, I think.

    I love love LOVE this. Looooooooooooove.

    Someone mentioned that they might not get your virtual flower, but I have it on good authority that they are still live- otherwise they wouldn’t still be tweeting.
