Day 22: redesign a book cover
The smudged lipstick is not supposed to be sexy. Lolita is one of my favorite books and I think it’s the most misinterpreted story in the world. I’d like to talk (and paint) more about this in the future.
133 Palestinians and 5 Israelis have been killed in the latest round of violence which started on Wednesday after Israeli soldiers shot Palestinian boys while they were playing soccer, one of whom was 13-year-old Hamid Younis Abu Daqqa. At least 27 of the dead were babies and children.
One Israeli strike on Sunday killed 12 Palestinians in the same house: four small children and five women including an 80-year-old all from the same family were among the dead [graphic].
I read that Israel ‘urges’ north Gaza residents to leave their homes. Curiously I Google how many live in northern Gaza. Over 200,000.
I walk into the kitchen. The smell of explosives, of death, penetrates my entire flat. Warplanes fly overhead. I anticipate more blasts.
I lie in bed. The buzzing intensifies. I hear ambulance sirens. I get up. The sirens grow louder, and so does Leila’s -my wife- breathing.
I sleep for a short while. Two hour pass before a series of successive blasts hit my area. Glass shatters. I wake up scared. My wife screams.
I’ve lost my words. Bombs rein down on my area. Behind the dining table, Leila and I sit close to each other. Death is what we are tweeting.”
