Mahmud Darwish

Saw this today on David's blog: Mahmud Darwish died yesterday.

I met him once in San Francisco. He was quiet, wry, and patient (I was pretty much the opposite) and I enjoyed his reading and conversation.

You can read one of his poems here:

I remember him as a fiercely intelligent activist who was also quite nice. RIP.
