at the moment my head is spinning and I'm not quite sure -- now, quickly applying something right out of my early years and nearly a decade studying ballet -- just where to turn; posing my first inquiry only to myself -- just what to use as my center, the spot searched out after every turn, to keep myself steady when spinning like a top on my toes?
first, let us just say that everything has changed. Whatever you think is certain, is uncertain. Whatever you think is firm foundation has been totally uprooted, catapulted up over the shoulders and now hanging into thin air, relying entirely upon the strength of something unknown.

“We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal.
Those words must guide
our response to the change
that is transforming the Middle East and North Africa
– words which tell us that repression
will fail, that tyrants will fall,
and that every man and woman is endowed
with certain inalienable rights."
