A friend of mine sent me this video detailing the architectural plans for the Valley of Peace initiative in the desert area between Jordan, Israel and the West Bank. It’s a plan that has captured the imagination and support of Israeli President Shimon Peres and is being pursued by Jordanians, Israelis and Palestinians. It is meant to build communities, businesses, amusement parks, shopping centers, and most of all – a greener and more productive desert, shared by different people with similar interests.
Seems quite grandiose and ambitious; especially from the looks of the video and the optimism in the narrator’s voice.
But you know what? Why the hell not dream. It looks good, it feels good. I could spend afford to spend some energy on making that happen.
