There comes a time in one's life when a flap jaw like me is rendered speechless. It happened a few days ago when I received a surprise delivery from Purolator. The gift is currently gracing my bookshelf and I still can't quite believe it-
Yes- that's my poor attempt at a novella "Samosa for the Arranged Souls" in print!
Inside are the most beautiful introductory sentences written by the editor, who incidentally is my oldest best friend Sakina.
She (plus her hubby Mustafa, a fantastic man) got it published without my knowledge right in Kuwait and what can I say except that I'm humbled. That she thinks me worthy of such a thoughtful labour of love, is a true testament of her exceedingly generous spirit.
Thank you for wrapping up your love and sending me strength when I truly needed it.
All I can do from here is send up a prayer into the world for more Sakinas- my own Obama of hope. The world needs more of you!
