Z is for Ziraleet

It seems that this word is untranslatable. It is an expression of joy by a group of women in Aleppo, consisting of the words “Lillé, lillé, lillé” repeated as often as possible in one breath. Also used figuratively for any expression of joy. I am joyful! My main intention in participating in the A to…

Y is for Yoga

I have been a meditator for quite some time now. 22 years. With the ups and downs that comes with it. Re-evaluating my commitment more often than never. With the emotional earthquake of the past 4 months and a half, I am grateful for the practice. I don’t meditate to “attain” something. Meditating is the…

X is for Ex

Ok I played a bit on the sound of the letter. But, you know, it’s a game we play.  You’ll see where I’m going. 😉 So what about EX’s? Actually, nothing. I don’t have Ex’s. No ex-boyfriends. I have friends. Ok that sounded wrong somehow… What I mean is I try to avoid the term…

W is for Whangam

What is a Whangam? I should do some kind of a giveaway for the first person who gets the answer. But no luck, I only have love to give, no goodies, so, I’ll tell you right away. (And the picture… It’s the Chester cat’s smile. 🙂 ) Whangam is an imaginary creature or animal. It’s…

V is for Victory

I know there are still a few days to go. But I want to celebrate my victory. I made it through letter V. On the days when all I felt was crying, I wrote. When all I wanted was to stay silent because there was no words, I wrote. I haven’t post about Camp NaNoWriMo…

T is for Thank you

When I started my blog it was for two main reasons: To reach out: I need to connect and share with other people than the ones I work with. Friends can be all over the world. To have a place to ponder, rant, wonder and express what I observe. There might be other reasons that I…

S is for Surrender

  I wanted to say a lot of things about surrendering oneself to love, to life. But there is only one thing I want to share with you. The post I wrote last year for the A to Z: S as in a song for Suzanne Suzanne is my mother’s name. I went to get…

R is for Raisonneur

No I haven’t slipped a french word in my english A to Z. (I have plenty of opportunity on my french blog to do so.) What is a raisonneur? It’s a person in a play or a  book embodying author’s viewpoint. Isn’t it interesting? That kind of role was encountered most frequently in European plays of…

Q is for Quietude

1. the state or condition of being quiet, peaceful, calm, or tranquil. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a place where I can be in a state of quietude. I used to go to the country more often. I don’t know what happen. Maybe I got busy. Avoiding. Sometimes I fear the silence. I…
