Soon about to be back. Itchy fingers and corona boredom. And things to say. Stay tuned.
This webpage is on hold for a while.
I love writing and I love sharing stories.
Sad stories, positive stories, stories that will make people think.
But I have something more important in my life now. Something that needs my attention.
This page will remain and I will be back.
In the meantime, stay strong, stay united. Let light and love lead your lives, instead of fear and darkness.
This poster was shared with me by a Jewish friend living in US. The poster supposedly preceded
the right winged extremist demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, where one person was killed and 19 injured by one of the extremists.
Does the poster need any comment? Or can we just get a hands up from everyone who understands that what is going on is a return of a madness?
This week it was the Yezidi New Year, known as Sere Sal, which means “Head of the Year”. It’s celebrated on a particular Wednesday of April, known as Red Wednesday. This day commemorates the Wednesday that Melek Taus, one of the central figures of the Yezidi religion, first came to earth millions of years ago in order to calm the planet’s quaking and spread his peacock colors throughout the world.
Below are photos from this week’s Yezidi New Year celebration in Sinjar, Iraq, close to the Iraqi-Syrian border.

A message from this past Christmas, from Lebanon: here’s a video of Shia orphan girls performing Christmas carols in the Saint-Elie church in Beirut.
Happy coexistence everyone, enjoy the music!
