Dear God,

Had you made me into a bird today, I wouldn't have cared, nor cried.. I'd build a home on a green branch that no other bird will burn, nor claim his. I'd feed off of the earth, where there's enough for all the other birds. But –my dear God- I am not a bird.. NO, you didn't make me one.. you made me a female human.. who makes love to one man, to give birth to another.. then watch the two kill each other.. dear god, Where does all this evil come from? Why does man kill man?





Dear SaudiEve readers,

I won't be blogging for
about six weeks. Be safe, Be
happy..

    May peae and Love find you,
    follow you in your footsteps;
    and fall away from your heals as you go. May we who are going along with our heads down find it there and raise it up to share unconditionally with all.
    Yours,
    Chicago

    I shall comment by a poem I wrote about the carnage in Lebanon.

    "Megiddo"

    Ancient enmity
    Zionist and Islamist
    missiles and madness
    blood carnage destruction
    innocents and combatants.

    Only appearance
    obscuring reality
    false facile fables
    what the class enemy wants
    all the oppressed to believe.

    Geopolitics
    petroleum and profits
    before human life.
    Are all still to blind to see
    the need for revolution?

    Not beautifully written at all.

    Do you want to appear like a victim?

    I do not see any substance here..

    i have much more to say, but i'll shut the hell up and stay quiet.

    "Why does man kill man?"____Because his mother taught him to hate the other man, and then sent him to a school where he was taught in detail why he should hate the other man.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. People who yell loudly with anger, are the people who are most fearful of change. Their anger is a mask for their fear.

    Keep writing. And be safe.

    "Who is this who darkens
    counsel by words without
    knowledge? Now prepare
    yourself like a man; I will
    question you, and you shall
    answer Me.

    "Where were you when I
    laid the foundations of the
    earth? Tell Me, if you
    have understanding. Who
    determined its measurements?

    Surely you know! Or who
    stretched the line upon it?
    To what were its foundations
    fastened? Or who laid its
    cornerstone, When the
    morning stars sang together,
    And all the sons of God
    shouted for joy? "Or who
    shut in the sea with doors,
    When it burst forth and
    issued from the womb;
    When I made the clouds
    its garment, And thick
    darkness its swaddling
    band; When I fixed My
    limit for it, And set bars
    and doors; When I said,
    'This far you may come,
    but no farther, And here
    your proud waves must stop!'

    "Have you commanded the
    morning since your days began,
    And caused the dawn to know
    its place, That it might take hold
    of the ends of the earth, And
    the wicked be shaken out of it?
    It takes on form like clay under
    a seal, And stands out like a
    garment. From the wicked
    their light is withheld, And
    the upraised arm is broken.

    "Have you entered the springs
    of the sea? Or have you walked
    in search of the depths? Have
    the gates of death been
    revealed to you? Or have
    you seen the doors of the
    shadow of death? Have
    you comprehended the
    breadth of the earth?

    Tell Me, if you know all this.

    "Where is the way to the
    dwelling of light? And
    darkness, where is its
    place, That you may
    take it to its territory,
    That you may know
    the paths to its home?

    Do you know it,
    because you were
    born then, Or because
    the number of your days
    is great? "Have you
    entered the treasury
    of snow, Or have you
    seen the treasury of hail,
    Which I have reserved
    for the time of trouble,
    For the day of battle
    and war? By what way
    is light diffused, Or
    the east wind scattered
    over the earth?

    "Who has divided
    a channel for the
    overflowing water,
    Or a path for the
    thunderbolt, To
    cause it to rain
    on a land where
    there is no one,
    A wilderness in
    which there is no
    man; To satisfy
    the desolate waste,
    And cause to spring
    forth the growth of
    tender grass?

    Has the rain a
    father? Or who
    has begotten the
    drops of dew?

    From whose
    womb comes
    the ice? And the
    frost of heaven,
    who gives it birth?

    The waters harden
    like stone, And the
    surface of the deep
    is frozen. "Can you
    bind the cluster of the
    Pleiades, Or loose the
    belt of Orion? Can you
    bring out Mazzaroth in
    its season? Or can you
    guide the Great Bear
    with its cubs? Do you
    know the ordinances of
    the heavens? Can you
    set their dominion over
    the earth? "Can you lift
    up your voice to the clouds,
    That an abundance of water
    may cover you? Can you
    send out lightnings, that they
    may go, And say to you,
    'Here we are!'? Who
    has put wisdom in the mind?

    Or who has given understanding
    to the heart?

    Who can number the clouds
    by wisdom? Or who can pour
    out the bottles of heaven,
    When the dust hardens in
    clumps, And the clods cling
    together?

    "Can you hunt the prey for
    the lion, Or satisfy the appetite
    of the young lions, When they
    crouch in their dens, Or lurk
    in their lairs to lie in wait?

    Who provides food for
    the raven, When its young
    ones cry to God, And
    wander about for lack
    of food?

    It would be blessing if God made us all Birds. To live a life of peace and to fly free like birds. I wish I could understand men better. I wish I knew why they feel better when they keep women prisoners while they get to be birds. I ran into your blog and I think its outstanding. I would love to read more about your life. God Bless.

    My name is Carri. I'm a screenwriter in Los Angeles, California doing research for a TV program on the sleeping habits of children all over the world, ages 6 to 12. I'd like to include children from Saudi Arabia. I'm wondering if you could help me. I'm specifically looking for information on where children sleep (In the same bedroom with other siblings? On the street? What do their rooms look like? What are their bedtime rituals? Are they affected by war? I’d like to send par-ents (or anyone who works with these children) a questionnaire that better explains what I’m doing. My story is meant to be sweet piece on children, for children, but one that also enlightens them to the lives of other children around the world.
    Please email me at ckaruhn@msn.com.
    Thank you

    hope all is well.

    May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
    may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    Death To women's Rights.

    (What have men gotten from women's rights? Marital rape laws (an Irish man
    was just jailed for 6 years for raping his wife), domestic violence laws, easy
    divorce laws, child support laws, etc etc etc.)

    Is there any way to stop and reverse it?

    I'm new to your blog... just found it because of the news from the blocking.

    I'm not as spiritual as many others here (from what I gather in the comments, at least...) but anyway, I truly hope light shines upon your path.

    Hello,

    It seems that perhaps you cannot get to your blog to update, perhaps that's why we haven't heard from you in so long. You may be the vanguard for the fight for more rights and freedoms in your country - don't give up the fight! Hope you are healthy and safe and that you can get back to your keyboard soon!

    Best Wishes,
    AJ
