October. I have to dedicate some words for October. Or perhaps I should name my first born October. October is my month, and somehow it’s one of my favorite months. I feel October in my bones. It gives me the chills. And the good kind of chills. October is the beginning. October welcomes the Autumn […]

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 […]

Suffocated Within those boundaries around me in my city my hometown   I can’t fight too weak to resist to fragile to stand up   So sick to defend my birthright too weak to lose my home too careful not to be found   hiding within my own thoughts my own beliefs my rights as […]

Tick-tock The clock is ticking A day Few hours Few minutes Until the big day The big day is by all means Not my wedding Not The big day But my big day My birthday! The day I turn 29 Twenty nine My twenties are almost over I only have one last year And then […]

My dear,Rise! You’ll be alright. All of this — all will be gone. Your agony, anguish, and anger will all — be gone. Go to sleep. In your sleep you’ll find beauty, will find love, and escapades – from your dark real mind. And when the sun rises, you’ll rise too. Strong and great. Now, […]

About ten years ago I decided that I want to become a writer. I was dreaming about becoming one of those best-selling authors that can live this exciting life of just spending time in solitude and write. I spent my late teen years (18 and 19) trying to write. I knew I lacked the language […]

هل هنالك من يخاف الحق؟ هل هنالك من يهاب الحقيقة؟ هل هنااك من يهرب من الحُب؟ الجواب هو: الجميع. كلنا نخاف من أجمل ما يبنيه الكون. هنالك في الحُب يوجد موت وعذاب حقد وكره وهذا مُرهب وأنا خائفة من كل شيء جميل من كل شيء شيّق أخاف الحياه اكثر من الموت. تموز ٢٠١٨ I’m finding […]

I just wanted to share pictures from my last trip to the magical city of Rome. Because I don’t have enough money and time, I hardly ever travel. So yes, I’m making a huge deal out of my trip to Rome. It was a spectacular visit. I took many pictures with my DSLR camera, but […]

“Not Your Toy” is a hit song by an Israeli singer that won at the Eurovision this year. The song supposedly deals with Chauvinism, which sounds like something I’d like to hear, but the tunes aren’t really that great. It’s a catchy pop song though. Israelis enjoy fighting racism, chauvinism, and try to advocate for […]

Last weekend I left a very beautiful apartment that I loved, to a smaller and less appealing apartment. I wasn’t at all excited for the move, but it is the right decision, and I will be grateful for that later. The story behind the move is long and distressing, but it’s a new beginning that […]

It’s the only land in which killing innocent people is considered self defense. It’s the only land in which imprisoning children is considered self defense. It’s the only land that confiscates lands to erase history. It’s the only land that forbids you from practicing your culture, because it is a threat. It’s the only land […]

When you’re born in Palestine, you always feel like you don’t know how to refer to your “home”. The song is sang in both Spanish and Arabic by the great Tunisian singer Emel Mathlouthi .
