San Diego Fête
I spent the last week in San Diego visiting with friends and family. During this time, I had the opportunity to visit with Zed Nashi and his mother Lamea Abbas Amara (pictured below, second from left). On the night of Saturday, August 18, 2012, we attended a small Mandaean get-together, which was attended by no fewer than four sheikhs, including Sheikh Salah Choheili (pictured below, third from left).
During this time, I also had the opportunity to briefly consult Lamea’s copy of the Doctrine of John, bundled together with a copy of the Book of Souls, which Zed has helpfully agreed to scan for me using my VuPoint Magic Wand scanner.
