I always find it very hard to define myself in these online spaces. Writing about who you are makes it so definitive. Yet I find myself ever changing, ever evolving. The attributes I choose cease to apply after a while and so they are irrelevant. So I choose to introduce myself and Shalabieh’s World as such:

I write to get the thoughts out of my head. I write to express the feelings that overflow. I write to recount the ordinary happenings of my existence. I live in Beirut. I work in an office. I enjoy the sun, the moon and the stars. I am a city animal. I grow with every minute. I breathe, I enjoy, I hurt. Just like you. I am!

If this is still not enough and you want to know more about the person behind the blog check out www.sallyshalabi.com

    Thanks for the comment the other day.

    And, yes, I’ve been having a look around since I first stumbled across here…you make some very thought-provoking points.

    Good to see someone else likes mint too (for some strange reason, every single person I know seems to hate the poor thing).

    hey sally,

    what a lovely blog? you write well about the every day. i liked your piece about the man going through a dumpster. you brought the whole thing to life and i could visualise the man doing what he was doing and you watching him.

    i believe words change things. so thank you for yours!

    all the best,

    Hi I am very supportive of all your work, however I am unhappy that when I have left a comment previously it has been listed on search engines. I have always had this section not enabled on my privacy settings.
