My good friend and blogging ally, Leila Abu-Saba of Dove’s Eye View has had a recurrence of cancer. But her doctors are optimistic that she can beat it as she did the last time. All of her friends are sending her good thoughts and energy as she contemplates the best path to recovery. She’s been thinking about whether she should abandon the blog because of the bad vibes in the world it forces her to confront. Maybe that’s too much bad energy, she worries.
I can’t tell Leila whether blogging will be good for her health or not. But I can say that having a loving blogger like her out there to try to create good vibes in writing about Lebanon, the Middle East and the Israeli-Arab conflict means a great deal to the rest of us. Her voice should be with us for many years to come.
R’fuah shlayma, Leila.
