I have felt a need lately to look at things differently, in a more optimistic and hopeful manner to be precise. In the midst of so much happening in Libya, and on this side of the world for the matter, I have found myself slowly drawing away from reality. I spend all day engulfed reading books and articles, trying my best to forget the situation surrounding me.
Whilst this tactic worked well during the Gaddafi era and kept me sane, I feel shameful of using the same tactics in the new Libya we sacrificed so much for. The Libya that promised us so much freedom and here I was sitting in some book far away.
