Just a quick note cause I am really tired from filming but I have to say two things.

One is that Jane Fonda's new book, My Life So Far, is very inspirational on many counts and I recommend it highly.

Two is that I have just come back from Beirut and Damascus and I loved both cities and both countries and the people, wherever we went and no matter the circumstances, were so generous and welcoming and giving and warm and I just fell in love with it all, the history, the people. My eyes were opened and I was touched.
