Once upon a lifetime...

“Nothing replaces the loss of a son, not even another son.” 
Those are the haunting words of Safia Abo Zour, a Palestinian woman whose four-year-old died in a 2011 airstrike in Gaza. In a portrait by photojournalist Eman Mohammed (Watch her TED Talk:The courage to tell a hidden story), Zour has one hand wrapped around her five-month-old; in her other hand, she holds the sweater that her older son wore the last time he went to kindergarten.

The chief lesson I have learned in a long life is that the only way to make a man trustworthy is to trust him; and the surest way to make him untrustworthy is to distrust him and show your distrust.

Inspired by my trip to the soul of West Africa; the beautiful yet heart wrenching and mind blowing city of Lagos, where my beloved Nigerians greet each other by asking “How far?”

How far have you gone chasing the sun that burns within your mind?

Chasing the ocean that you…

As far as the jungles would go

Hiding your green with its green

Blowing your mind with its inner peace

و كأن همّاً واحداً لا يكفي أو كأنّ الهموم يستأنس بعضها ببعض فلا تنزل على الناس إلا معاً
