PROJECTS: STAY ANOTHER DAY
In his eyes I saw an unspoken sadness.
A silent pool of tears.

Invincible. I grew up believing he was.
But it is time. This intolerable enemy.
No always. No forever.
If only one more day...

My maternal grandfather, Labib El Husseiny, passed away on December 9, 2007 at approximately 2 p.m. Cairo local time. These were the last photographs I took of him.
