My book challenge … from 20 to …..

I started this month by getting myself in a reading challenge on the occasion of my birthday , due the 20th of August. I challenged myself to read 20 books marking my Date of birth . However, by the tenth of the month I finished the twenty and I was left with a stronger urge to read . So I thought let’s do the challenge more challenging , and as I am turning 47 , let me see what a 47 year head can do .

And I did it…

so turning 47 … I am 47 times wiser and of course smarter .

I am by all means a lot more ignorant…. realizing how rich the world of reading is … and how wasteful life we live missing discovering the world through those who wrote history with all what it carries with heritage, science , culture , politics, knowledge, philosophy , literature ….and somehow we are wasted in what will become history….

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...
