While I was in Moscow (photos to come soon), eastern Turkey was it with a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. As it turns out, this weekend is the Muslim equivalent to our Christmas holiday. Grace and I are headed out there to shoot and write. We’re taking along a little aid material as well. Yarn and knitting needles. One of the leaders of the Turkish Christian relief organization suggested that it would be good for the women to have knitting so they can both pass the time and prepare for the winter. Temperatures are hovering around freezing right now and many people are afraid to go into their homes (if they still have homes).
