Daily Snap: Bunny

The rain is lashing, BBC Arabic – usually a source of morning vintage classics – is playing Taylor Swift and my article becomes more fickle by the day.

How to remedy such an ill-started morning?

FIP, graffiti and a ridiculous pencil:

Bunny, by Layla

FIP has yet to play a bad tune and soothes cranky crinkles in much the same way as hiding in the corner of a warm, cozy French café with limitless WiFi and a potent espresso.

Graffiti visually lifts the spirits and thoughts: over in Beirut the graffiti is more than art – it is a physical rendering of the subconscious and the past, present and future aspirations.

Walls that Speak is a super documentary charting street art in Lebanon, while over at BeirutStateofMind, Cow of Beirut looks at political tagging in the city.
