I was contacted by certain people to watch my P’s and Q’s around revealing the setting and uniqueness of this epic film based on the Frank Herbert novel “Dune”. Even though I was on my own travels and nowhere near the set, it was, indeed, in a desert. I am leaving Jordan tomorrow so I can’t continue anyway. That said, it’s almost always in my mind to post whatever the fuck I want as long as it doesn’t impede on how well the story is told and the beauty and uniqueness with which it is being filmed. I have too much respect for the art of filmmaking/storytelling to do that. So here is a vast desert, some vast desert, replete with camels and a man, like the one from Sudan whom I met, guiding them. This is a symbol, a general symbol, of my thanks to Jordan as a country and as a people. I’ve been deeply moved by this experience here and the respect with which you treat each other and outside visitors. I know people watching these stories and reading these posts have appreciated what social media, used with discipline and integrity, has the ability to do: awaken in us a compassion and an awe of the world at large and the diversity with which it has evolved. My respect to you Jordan for taking us in with such open arms.

the biggest thing i was excited about when i heard i'm going to be with Dune crew here in Jordan really was meeting you. i wanted to tell you in person how much you inspire me with your attitude towards life, your films, and especially your openness with your poems. wanted to show my gratitude as a friend not a fan. Thank you for your kind words towards Jordan, and i'm glad our crew and people made you feel at home. i'll one day say this in person, until then, thank you!

And thank you for taking us to a place many haven’t been, and reminding us that we have far more in common than we are different. It’s by finding the difference and leaning into it that we come together. Find the vertex. Start there.
