The trial of the seven Baha’i leaders in Iran has been postponed.Â As this New York Times article so aptly put it: “The Bahais have long served as the proverbial canaries in the coal mine of Iranâ€™s theocracy.” Injustice against one minority group does not bode well for the rest, which is why it is so important to fight against injustice of this nature.Â Individuals should not be jailed because of their religious beliefs.Â You would think that this is common sense, but unfortunately humanity still has a lot to learn.
My new camera is wonderful.Â I’m still learning to use it, and am looking forward to investing in more lenses.Â That will have to wait, however, as I’m considering the purchase of a laptop (I’ve not bought a new computer since 2001!).
I’ve been traveling for work, moving to a new apartment (my sublease is up at the end of the month, so I found another sublease until mid-October), trying to keep up with emails, photos, and other web-related things.Â I have not had a chance to write much for Soulpancake, or for myself for that matter.Â And, of course, spending time with my family and friends, who tend to get neglected when life gets busy.
If I haven’t told you lately that I love you, please know that I do!
