Out of love...

I have temporarily fallen out of love with blogging. Only temporarily though, I know real life will slap me in the face soon enough and I will come crying back here ha ha. Spring always does this to me. To not keep you totally bored I thought I'd offer ya'll a true story, a true FUNNY story. I don't know if it's me turning 30 + and wanting to convince myself of my good looks (yeah yeah yeah) or just plain good sense of humour that's making me do this, but here it goes...

I was on my way home, and had a walk through the park and passing a school. Some school kids (like 18-19 years old) were hanging out and when I passed by (mind you, in my hidjab and jilbab) one of the guys turned his head after me and bursted out;

-Mmmm, halal meat!

That still puts a smile on my face til this day.

Halal meat??? Hahahaa.... this age-group is so endearing really. To think that I once belonged to this 'frame of mind' group (meaning being easily influenced and puting my own preferences and views on hold just because I wanted to 'belong') seems (and is) such a long time away. It makes me feel very sentimental actually....

Spring certainly has a special effect on (most) people. I wish the situation was different and we could meet up at the lovely Gaza-beach since you know: the sun at this time of year will tan our skins for the rest of the summer and tans it very quick as well ;-)

Be well and take care Imaan,

Dear Iman on Ice - Sister Iman,

I accidentally chanced upon your blog from 'a mother from gaza'.

There is one thought that immediately jumps to mind from your blog, from the images captured on it, and from your daily description of the surreality of life in Gaza. This is also equally true of other blogs like yours, as well as eloquent writings of many Palestinians like Raja Shahedah and Muna Hamzeh.

Through your exposure to the daily life and living of ordinary peoples in Palestine, you put a lie to this monumental statement from Israel's President for the benefit of the Western readers - being of Western origin yourself (and thus presumably more objective) - and for that efficacy of your writings and images, I humbly thank you.


"There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, they are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to different galaxy." (Moshe Katsav, President of Israel, The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001)
