Really happy to announce that as I move forward with the remaining chapters of the book, I received somewonderful news from the European Endowment for Democracy. They willbe offering their support forthis project until the very end. Their support is indicative of their commitment and belief that the storiesof the people featured in the book need and should be told. As you know forthe past year, I traveled north and south, east and west to see, hear and experience the lives of different people. Every life will tella story. A story of a country through the eyes and lives of its own people. It continues to bean inspiring journey filled with questions and answers. I visited people in deserts and fields. In some places I saw nothing but gray concrete. Meanwhile, the photography work and writing continues and stay tuned for moreupdates in the next few months!

The field work and interviews for six chapters have been completed. Forthose of you who I meet with or speak to and ask me about the charactersand the places or offer advice, thank you.
