An Egyptian living in Europe but her heart stayed back home. Having some random thoughts about the before and after pictures. Ghawayesh means bracelets. In my context it symbolizes the cuffs of my culture. I don't know if I like them or hate them. Thanks for passing by.

I started this blog in 2006 as a joke. Now that I look back, I have decided to take it seriously!

First Words After Surviving Sandy

وفي ظل هذه الظروف العصيبة، نحب نشكر الأقمار الصناعية، وأكياس الزبالة الجامبو، والجوانتي الجلد أبو فروة، وإزازة المونوكير البمبي، وجميع تطبيقات العلم التي ساعدتنا بها الإنسانية لاجتياز الإعصار الذي حوَل المدينة التي لا تنام إلى "مدينة الأشباح" لمدة ٢٤ ساعة، بينما يعيش الأشباح الحقيقيون عالة على الحياة، ولا يستحون من بث الكراهية بينما ضحايا زلزال ١٩٩٢ مثلاً لسة "منكوبين" مع أن معظمهم ماكانش اتولد ساعتها.

شكراً أخي الإنسان، سحقاً أخي الحيوان.

Home Sa-weeet Home

Back from Michigan, Philadelhia, and the Bahamas.

As much as I hated the West Coast, I am getting addicted to the East Coast!

I have so much to write, and I have been feeling down for not being able to write lately, but the good news is, I'm back richer, deeper, and more insightful about the meaning of life.

The idea for my book is finally cooked now. It took a year of pain to get it well done!

So grateful for everything I have and for all the things I don't have,  and for everyone that comes into, and everyone that gets out of my life.

I breathe in love, I breathe out love.

I'll be back.

Hakuna Matata

To be full of bitterness and unforgiveness is like drinking poison hoping it will hurt your enemies.
