words of wisdom: from Amin Ma’louf

……..I had to await my first white hairs, my first regrets, before becoming convinced that every man , including my father ,had the right to take the wrong road if he believed he was pursuing happiness.

From that time, I began to cherish his erring ways, just as I hope that you will cherish mine, my son.

I wish that you too will sometimes get lost in your turn.

And I hope that ,

like him,

you will love to the point of tyranny,

and that you will long remain receptive to the noble temptation of life .

Exploring my own Shoes ... somehow my walk , my way ... Being a woman is one thing . One important thing of originally two things. However, living in a global patriarchal dominance makes one thing dominant of another . A lifetime struggle of women resilience for being the one thing they are Women . All the resilience of being a woman is another ONE thing . For being a Moslem woman is another thing . Being a Moslem woman living in an Occupied land is definitely a totally other thing. What if you add divorce to this ? Being a Woman, a Moslem , a Palestinian and Divorced … makes the introduction to living in my shoes… Living in a Shoe of a Woman. PS. English is not my first language.. I know I often need to edit , however, there is something in the power of the 'click send' button.. ever since I did it the first time .. I enjoy clicking directly from my heart...unedited...
