About Marahm

At first glance, I may appear to be a middle-aged American woman with kids, grandkids, retired from a job in a hospital, gratefully relieved from the responsibilities that come with all of that. Behind the image, which is true enough, I am fairly unhinged from much of American mainstream living, having spent twelve years in Saudi Arabia, years that sprung me from societal and familial impositions of narrow bands of truth. I have learned to embrace my sense of identity as a seeker, an artist, and a writer. I study Arabic and Italian language, because I love them, and I love their people. I still dream of spending more time in the Middle East and Italy, though the dreaming now seems more real than the possibilities. I am a photographer. I write, and sometimes publish, flash memoir, and now a blog or two.

    Salam Marahm,

    Eid Mubarak!

    I think the first time I got here was through American Bedu’s blog!
    I’ve been reading for quite some time and never got round to commenting, everyone else always does a great job and I have nothing more to add!

    InshAllah your year is filled with faith, health and happiness!

    You have an interesting space and I enjoy reading! Keep up the great work!

    All the best to you!

    Thank you, Tee, for commenting. I hope to hear more from you. Welcome, spiritual breath, Amina, and my regular readers. You are all close to my heart. I hope to read and comment more on your blogs in the year to come. Sometimes I enjoy your blogs so much I neglect my own.

    I started blogging mainly to set up a showcase for my own writing, memories and opinions. I never expected that I’d find such interesting and talented people from all areas of the world whose blogs would capture my attention and connect me with new ideas and fresh viewpoints, as well as reinforce my own.

  12. Eid Mubarak Marahm,

    “I never expected that Iā€™d find such interesting and talented people from all areas of the world whose blogs would capture my attention and connect me with new ideas and fresh viewpoints, as well as reinforce my own.”

    And we found YOU! And are mighty grateful to Allah for letting us.
