Majed, 42 years

HOS: It’s late at night. Why are you still out here selling fuel after all the other vendors have gone home?

“I don’t know exactly, but everything seems more beautiful after the snowfall… as if the white sweeps away some of the darkness that fills our hearts.
Every day I sit out here for long hours, but on this day everything seems more beautiful. Even with the harsh cold, I couldn’t resist the urge to stay awhile and meditate on the beauty of this place, blanketed in white. “
