Bar Bahar/ In Between – a film by Maysaloun Hamoud

I haven’t seen this film yet, though I’ve heard it received good reviews, and for once the Arabic woman stereotype is broken. For god’s sake, people around the world think that Arab women are supposed to be of one kind, but in this film, as it appears in the trailer, Arab women can live on […]

A struggling editor looking for writers

I’ve been in contact with  Mahmoud Mansi for few years now.  Mr. Mansi is a writer, a poet, an artist, a founder, and a very handsome Egyptian man. He’s the kind of man that would take chances on things that don’t even make sense, yet they make a change and a difference in society. For so […]

A united world

No more wars. No more walls. A united world. Because there should be a wall to write all these words on. Otherwise these words will never be written let alone read. Because our world needs walls to sing for freedom and peace. We need walls to separate between the nations of the world. And more […]

Break Free

I found this on Tumblr and I thought of sharing the youtube video here on my blog. Words inspired by watching this video: Break free … the mortal soul inside you. Break free those eyes that wander around. Trying to find a true identity, or more than just one. Break free… those boundaries you lived within, […]

To Our Countries – لبلادي

Music and prose that brought me to tears. English subtitles are included.   We sing and we speak for our countries, for our lands, for our people, dreams and love. We sing and speak for our enemies, who slaughtered us and deprived us from our dignity. And we live. With those songs and words.

Birthday cake

I just thought of sharing this photo of the cake I had 3 days before my birthday. I’m turning 25 on Monday. I still haven’t done any of the things I was supposed to do before the age of 25. It’s 25, it’s not 15, it’s not 18, hell, it’s not even 20 or 22. […]

Promoting Cosmetics

I don’t usually talk about cosmetics. And those who know me know how little I know of cosmetics, make up, fashion, labels and even beauty. When it comes to shopping you can usually find me in a bookstore. I hope that can change though, I truly admire beauty and fashion. Make up is after all painting […]

With a piece of coal

I check her profile everyday, every hour, to see if she’s okay. Every time she posts something, I’m relieved, that she’s fine – alive. I send her messages, asking if she’s okay, if she’s safe. I have nothing further to say except to take care of herself and be safe. What am I supposed to […]

Being crazy creative with photoshop

I found this project on Bored Panda and couldn’t help but share it here.

Great artists/creators

I find myself caught in this moment in which I will have to decide what kind of creator  I wish to become, the good and successful or the loser? the proud or the humble? We choose to write for glory and love, instead of misery and humblness. Creators nowadays are to be proud, thus they […]
