So, I’ve been dreaming of writing in beautiful Arabic calligraphy. I’ve had this dream for quite some time, I even have two beautiful big encyclopedia’s of Arabic “Line’s” bought for me as a gift by a wonderful friend. Yet I want to take this to the next step and actually learn from someone… and so I am asking for your help.
Please let me know if you know of a good Calligraphy teacher to study with for a month or two, preferably in Cairo or Damascus.

Life teaches us a lot of lessons from the day we open our eyes and scream out our first cry till the day we die. Being open to life’s lessons and learning is a quality I like to think I possess. Reflecting back over my life in the past 30 years I think I have learned a few things and here are some of them:
1- Life is tough, but the human spirit is tougher.
2- There is always a silver lining; you just have to look very hard.
3- Finding out who you are is a continuous journey into oneself, and it is the hardest journey one can take.
4- Being directionless is a direction that lets you go places you would have otherwise ignored.
5- Love does exist, and it hits you when you least expect it (thanks cupid!).
6- Being true to yourself and who you are makes you sleep a lot better at night then awaking up to living a life that isn’t yours.
7- The world is a beautiful place waiting to be explored.
8- You can make a difference one person and one step at a time.
9- I am not a superhero and its OK J
10- We are all weird and I love it.
I wonder what you have learned in your life journey? I would love to talk to you about it and share your ideas and thoughts on life, learning and living.
