Wood and Politics

I feel at home when I am around books. Or when amongst wooden walls. Dark, snug wooden walls. It's a pattern. My favorite bookstore has wooden interiors, and my favorite coffee shop. Maybe it's the color brown. A color that defines my existence. Caramel colored skin, hazel eyes and coffee brown hair.

On an entirely different note, Egypt is going through a now-or-never phase. A revolutionary one...or maybe an evolutionary phase. He wants to amend the constitution (which is much, much needed) and he has my support. I might not be that much of an activist- at least not as much as I want to be, but I love my country. I love my country deeply.

There is nothing better than a wood book store. The smells and the feeling of comfort make me joyous for the rest of the day.

i was thinking about you the other day thinking it's been WAY too long since i've had her sunshine. (is that weird? lol it's true though!)

and this post is so empowering. I often forget what it's like in other beautiful countries... to have power in standing up for what you believe.

Keep loving your country deeply. And someday take me to this lovely coffee shop where brown is very much a defining part of my existence as well. xo

I love books so much as well. My perfect day is reading a good book while having a cup of hot chocolate.

i, too feel at home the instant that there are more books than people around.
my mom was a librarian while i was growing up and it's still my favorite thing.

you love how much i love music and i love how much YOU love Egypt.
more young people everywhere need to be more proud of where they live.

love&light!

this is so good to hear. if it's better for the people, then a reform is a must, no? i'd love to visit. sigh.

I feel the same with books. I like the wooden shelves and walls. They make it feel so snug.
I hope all goes well with your country reform. I like that you have so much passion and love for your country. x
