We dedicate the "Colors from
Palestine" 2012Calendar to the memory of Mahmoud Darwish,
who has quietly
left us onSaturday9 August 2008 after 67 years of a life
jumping from one peak to another, rising higher every time,
He was able to see what no one else can see: in life,
politics, and even people, expressing his visions in a
language that seems to be made only for him to write with.
