Below is my contribution to the travels of the Mormon History Association’s presidential seer stone.
The location is “The Tree of Life” (Shajarat al-Hayah) in southern Bahrain. It is a 100+ year-old tree out in the desert with no obvious source of water. It’s winter and the “wet” season, so things are greener than usual. See here for another image of the tree and a satellite shot showing the isolation. If one doesn’t get lost (ahem, and mea culpa), it’s about thirty minutes from my apartment.
You can tell it’s really me in the photo by the closed eyes, the partially untucked shirt, and the “stone” sketched, in a moving car, on lined notebook paper.
More photos of JI-ers and Keepa’ninnies with May are here.
