وداعا


إلى بعد الظهيرة


لأني بالليلة وإلى الأبد سأطارد


القمر المكتمل

أنا آسف لقفزي السريع في لقطار


انتظرت ولكن لم يأت أحد


لقد أتيتِ متأخرة

What's more important: a soul or consciousness?

I thought about it for a long time.
High consciousness is able to create worlds and perfect matters. But consciousness of man puts him down and limits all his will.
A soul is a spark of a pristine world in man's body. It's able to alive a mortal matter and to inspire it to create.

Racism: The Serpent Around Our Necks Since the Original Sin of Slavery

The image of a serpent around our necks is an apt one. Indeed, aware people in the time of the Civil War referred to slavery as a “serpent.”

Has this serpent still got a grip on the throat and life of the nation? We can say that the serpent of white dominance, in the form of the knee of a police off Read more of this blog post »

A Conversation Worth Having

descriptionEvery single day people attempt or avoid tough conversations.

They think to themselves…

“It’s scary.”

“It’s complicated.”

“It makes me uncomfortable.”

“I’m nervous I’ll say the wrong thing.”

“I don’t want to misspeak and create more damage.”

“It’s messy and I don’t need messy right now.”

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
