Brief reflections on five experiences

Hello!
In this issue there is Ramadan, a goodbye, praises for custom fit clothes, wondering about wandering, and coffee roasting. Welcome, Jerry!
I’ll be in the Minneapolis area June and July. I’m so eager to see friends and family, touch soft green grass, and drink some real wine.

Ramadan 🕌
Ramadan has begun. It’s a time, I’ve learned, that my students cherish for the ritual of Iftar, the meal with family and friends after sunset to break the fast. They also seem to enjoy Ramadan as a time of reflection. Students tell me they can earn “points” for good deeds and thoughts. The fasting, though, can be disruptive to learning because families tend to stay up late and wake up shortly before sunrise to eat before the fast begins with sunrise. To accommodate the traditions, our school created a special schedule. During the Holy Month of Ramadan students have four classes from 9 AM to 1:30 PM. How might we normalize that schedule? It’s pretty good. I like it.
Dinner 🥘

Home 🏡
Next week we’ll move into a new apartment. For the fifth time in five years we will move into a new home. This time we’re moving two blocks away.
Unlike the typical sand colored buildings, our new apartment building is blue.
I’m wondering about wandering. Since I left home at 20, I’ve not lived anywhere more than six years. I’ve lived in seven cities in five countries. Has wandering brought out a better version of me? Or would I have been better off staying in one place?
Suits🕴️
The tailor at Prince Tailor for Gents took my measurements and made two suits and four dress shirts for me.
Tod gets his measurements by the tailor.
The custom fit makes for a surprising comfort. And I didn’t even have to mention, like President Lyndon Johnson once did, my bunghole.
Coffee ☕
I was lucky to walk into my neighborhood coffee shop the other day while they were roasting beans from India. I’m happy if I can get coffee five days off the roast date. I beat that this time.
Medium roasted beans cool down in the tray.
I really want to roast my own beans. I’m going to see if there is a way to get started with a home roaster in Kuwait. If you like to roast your own beans, get in touch with me. What do you say, Victor?
