So, I haven’t written in ages. On one hand, recently, every intended return to this blog felt so much out of place and tune with what had been a familiar “personal” space – I guess parts of me have outgrown parts of this blog. But that’s work in process. And, truth is, I have also been grappling with a number of deamons; but even through the darkest and most desperate of times, there sometimes shine these magical rays: moments of light, little triumphs, small reminders of all the personal spaces, pleasures, and freedoms that make our struggle worth even more fighting for and sustain us through it.
Mine included trekking in the Sinai with friends and sleeping under an almond tree,
being part of a great team doing work I love, being present for my niece’s open day in her Kindergarten,
co-founding Operation Anti Sexual Harassment, celebrating my parents’ 36 anniversary,
seeing the Nile meet the Mediterranean for the first time in my life.
And I am posting this to share these moments, also as an update and slow return to this blog, but, more importantly, to serve me as a reminder.
