This quote is from the first Haboob Manifesto: Sometimes God gives us the very best gift, wrapped in not-so-great wrappings, so we want to return it because we are so focused on the outside of it. I had to remind myself of it. Just now, upon opening the mail. I and my family stepped out […]

So I had the pleasure of spending time with colleagues yesterday. Our meeting was held at one of the other folks’ house, which, compared to where we live, could be coined the nosebleed section.
