I got a few hours of sleep so I feel a bit better today. It's raining off and on here in Tripoli and it feels cold and damp outside. Inside the house we are warm. I have no phone service at the moment but the internet is working. The kids have finally put on a movie instead of the never-ending bad news.
I usually go out in the garden or take a walk in the farm when I'm under stress because it makes me feel better. But these days that just makes it worse. Your ears strain to hear what's happening in the distance. So instead, I worked on the plants in the window next to my desk.
I made a small terrarium. And then I thought how similar Libya is to a terrarium... everything happening inside with no intervention from outside... the whole world is looking in.
