My dear friends –
It has been many weeks since I’ve posted which has allowed me time and space for self-care. I has been slow going but with the support of friends and family things have gotten much better. My fiance recommended, early last month, that I shelve everything to do with faith, activism, justice and Israel/Palestine. He suggested reading fiction, watching movies, and going out with friends.
The movies I haven’t watched (I’ve never been a TV person), but I have been out a few times with my father and friends, and I have been ploughing my way through my favorite fiction titles. So far I have made my way through the Harry Potter series, and now I am on the Mortal Instruments after this I will go to The Dark Materials. I chose these good vs. evil fantasy stories because I think that somewhere along the way I forgot that good will always triumph over evil. Call me idealistic, but God is good and he always has the final word. I’m hoping this stories remind me of that – that Good and God always triumph – and heal me for the next round of justice work.
Overall, I am well – I am healing more each day and soon I will be posting again. I am not sure of exactly when, but of course – you all will know.
Also – the next post will be one about my friend Azeeza. Please keep your eyes peeled for it.
