Do you remember when the sea was blue? Blue as its sky? Or as that shirt that you once wore and never again? Why is blue a cold color? just like our seas, and our mountains. Just like our fantasies and desires. I still remember that day, when the sea was blue, and the breeze […]

I’m not much of a traveler, but I was in Istanbul, Turkey with my family last week. The flight to Istanbul was very short – 2 hours long. Yet, I can’t believe it took me that long to get there. Istanbul is a magnificent city that should be visited more than 3 times in a […]

Why does January feel like the longest month of the year? This month contains 31 days, and it is indeed a long month. But so are many other months during the year. Still, January feels like the longest of them all. And for some reason, it feels like it doesn’t end. So many things have […]

I can easily just post a picture of myself in 2009, and another one from today, but why is that a challenge? “I challenge you to show a picture of you ten years ago!” I honestly don’t recall having any real embarrassing pictures of myself ten years ago, but I could find myself in a […]

Pictures from my visit to Göttingen and Hanover – Germany, December 2018

I found this on UN Women page on Instagram, and I thought it’s worth sharing: Women and girls can do any job–and as we progress into the future, they continue to defy gender roles in various male-dominated industries. .Like many young, educated Lebanese women today, Sandy is creating new and innovative opportunities for self-employment by […]

Last year I wrote some resolutions, which I updated in March, and now I think it’s the time to review those resolutions, and evaluate my performance in 2018. You see, I sound professional. Let’s hope I can excel in keeping some resolutions this year too. So here’s a list of the resolutions I updated last […]

الجبال – مع بعضها تتّحد لتكوّن جيشاً عظيماً يحارب هجوم الانسان على طبيعة الله.  صخور الجبال – صلبة، قويّة، شرسة، ليست مسامحة للتهوّرات العشوائية بدون مبرر. أشجّار الجبال – منتصبة، خضراء، تقف نبيلة، تحمي الغابة من نار الحرب.بقاء هذه الاشجّار أهم عنصر لإتحاد الجبال. تشرين أول 2018

Why is it that when we’re young dreams are still allowed? When we’re young we’re allowed to dream and talk about our dreams. No matter how ridiculous they are, we’re allowed to love, be passionate and talk about our dreams.  Wish I can go back in time, and dream more. Without any shame. 

I had a friend (had, not have) who used to say that feminism is overrated, and that considers that prioritizing women empowerment has become an obsession.  He’s not the only modern modern, liberated, even educated man who has ever said that. Many men nowadays are frustrated by feminism, they claim it’s hardcore, and they strongly […]

Christmas is a holiday that beats all holidays around the world. And it doesn’t matter how much you can argue, Christmas remains the most magical holiday of all times.  I was brought up in a Christian house, and surely Christmas was and still is  part of our winter holiday season. Even though we live in […]

I wrote before about being suffocated by many things in my life. I spoke about being suffocated by society, by traditions, by patriarchy, by Zionism, and by occupation. This time I have something different that suffocates me. Something that should in fact liberate me, or make me a great human being. I try to be […]
