The new year found me rather unprepared – time has been running these last months and years. So much to do and so little time is always what I think at the end of a day. Will 2019 be different? I promised myself to try my best – more own texts, more pictures, more time for myself. You may check in here and on my other blogs if I will be able to make it come true …
Have a good time, all of you!
Actually two of my WiPs contain visits to Mekkah and Medinah – one has the title of “Dreaming of Medinah”. The other one – which I wrote about last week on my German language blog as both are unfortunately again in German – is at the point, where the two main characters, very different sisters, have gone to visit Medina and among the last sentences I wrote last Thursday was: Tomorrow, Mekkah.
Not two hours later I got a phone call from the local Saudi Embassy and knew that this year, finally, I would be granted a visa for Hadj. Since then I am trying to concentrage, running in circles in order to remember all the essentials.
Living in Jordan you have the choice to travel by plane or over land by bus. I had been thinking about flying rather, I am not getting any younger, but as the visa came late there are waiting lists for the flight tickets plus there is a considerable price difference … so I will take the long road and be able to really feel Medinah and then Mekkah coming closer and closer, inshaAllah.
The above picture was taken by my husband on his last Umrah; I don’t think I will take many pictures, being too busy with more important things.
Thank you for reading; if you like make dua for my Hadj being accepted and my safe return.
Nothing much has been happening on this blog since too long time. My friends know this is mostly due to the fact that I started translating other authors’ books into German language – a work I love but a work that is also time consuming and often leaves me too tired to write a single sentence of my own. But today I got the opportunity to buy the domaine of this blog and then got the drive to make some changes in theme and header and added a galery – check it out, I put some of my Jordan pictures there.
If I can manage I plan to redo some more here and then I hope slowly start filling better content. For those who love my pictures please go to my Jordan-blog, I try to publish the best fotographs there – also a blog that needs a new look, I think.
I was very pleased when Diane De Bella chose one of my pieces for her anthology. Now it is available not only as ebook, but also in print.
For me, reason to do some advertisement here, because I always doubted I could get anything published in english language.
Thank you, Diane!
