Why do I want to publish what moves me on the internet? Foremost, I just enjoy to share my lyrics with the people who are sincerely interested to read them. For only those will find themselves reading these words.. You might be a close friend, or a far stranger: be my guest, and know you are welcome here.
Aya (‘aaya’) is an Arabic word which has different meanings: first of all, it refers to a Koranic verse, or, in general, a passage in a book. Secondly, it means symbol, signal, miracle, wonder or example. Whereas I used the Egyptian Arabic word durra, in the meaning of pearl, for my former weblog to refer to the natural process in which a pearl is created, now I also wanted to add the word aya.
We all change, grow, and develop by time. Lately I see and sense the blessed moments of unexpected ‘divine’ interference in my life with more and more awareness: and I am wholeheartedly thankful for this.
May it teach me to never stop trying to become a more ‘human’ being; to ever hope to walk my way in this life with love and respect towards others and our planet; and to use my talents and gifts for the whole, for the better.
