This post is a whim, completely off focus and off topic, so please forgive me: I’ll be back on my winding track, as I continue to make my blog more straight and narrow, shortly. But for this moment…
Who doesn’t dream of the perfect partner: a soul mate, that one person on this planet with whom you mesh completely, who gets you, and whom you also get and complete? Who can finish your sentences, and even re-write them better than you first wrote them?!
I write to rewrite my story. I study the sacred texts, particularly in Hebrew, and I plan also one day to learn them in Arabic, for guidance on how to rewrite my story. I also look to Rumi, to Octavia, to Olivares and to Betüş. But the Bible is my native culture’s foundational text, and so I must learn first how my origins have shaped me, and thus how to reshape my future.
Then, I look to other influences for signs of what has been, what might have been, and what could yet become.
Anyone care to join me?
I’m using Biblical and other sacred sources.
