The topic of ‘Inspiration’ seems fitting for a January month and it’s been a while since I’ve been ‘inspired’. We’ve all thought about our new years’ resolutions which often stems from something we saw, or read, or a person we want to be or not be like or whatever the reason might be.
I’ve had friends talk about Michelle Obama’s new book which has inspired them, others are literally working their butt off to get a good butt, I, on the other hand just want to dedicate any learning time to possibly memorising anything that Nazar Qabbani might have ever written, read or touched (with help from my boo Kazim, sorry Zee).
How could anyone describe love stronger than these words?
It sounds nowhere as beautiful as it was if you only understood Arabic, but it says because of you my women have aged, and I’ve left my history behind, and I’ve wiped my birth date, and I’ve cut all my veins – so perfectly dramatic.
I’ve been gifted a book that has touched my soul, and so I’m inspired to rewrite it, translate it and just talk about it. I wonder if he has any idea how incredible he was, how could something be so good?!
He should be the reason you want to learn Arabic
Or understand Arabic
He is the reason I continue to want to write Arabic
His words are the darkest vision and the brightest beautiful
He is my all time #inspo
Tell me, what and when inspires you?
