As soon as I can, I should take a moment to ponder extensively on
– the concept of modesty I’ve been indirectly introduced to by a couple of crucial Muslim girls who are in my life now
– the whole idea of what constitutes an appropriate display of public affection here in Amman, its opposite, and all that derives from that
– the value of community as a permanent bodyguard
– the world of so-called expats
– conceptions of family and its influence over one’s life decisions.
