My exciting news

Still pinching myself occasionally when I think about my new job. I'm going to be working as a research assistant on a project setting up a database that will eventually become a wiki on the war rugs of Afghanistan. Blogging got me a job, kids!

I'm already finding out that some of the things I thought I knew about Islam and Islamic art are way off the mark. As illustrated by the Farsi inscription under this portrait of Khomieni, which says “They open the door of the drinking house and we go there day and night as we are sick of going to the mosque and the school.

There's also a love poem in there, featuring sentiments like being “lovesick at the beauty of your eyes”. I haven't yet confirmed if they follow you 'round the room.

The project has its own blog, which is here; the image above is from a US site, warrug.com.
