Life through a new lens

A short piece a wrote for the University of Calgary’s Alumni magazine has just been published. In it, I talk a little about my walls project and my own origins as a writer. You can find it here.

I just finished a first draft of half of my walls book – I will need to travel again to write the second half. I am looking forward to putting it aside for a month or so, working on magazine pieces, and planning for my next trip. I’m also doing some presentations for classes here at the University. I will be talking about the Iranian traditional wrestling for a Kinesiology class, and about the Iranian love of poetry for a English lit students. I already spoke to a class of Environmental Design students about the social impacts of walls. These are busy times.
