Anyway,will be packing soon and saying my goodbyes for now till January. I will not be having any christmas in Cairo, but I guess new year is enough to put a smile on my face knowing that I spent it where I would like to be most and with those I love more than anything.

This site will have "most of" my life experiences, my thoughts, my refelctions and emotions. I may pour my heart out here If I so wish or I may hide my deepest secrets and show denial. What matters is...that I will be able to read it later on and perhaps realise things that I may have not noticed at the time of an event, or an encounter.
And what matters even more and more...is YOU! You who will read it and be able to reflect, comment and feedback. You may know me in person so you'd understand more what I say or go through or you may not.... what will count at the end of the day will be words...Words on a blog that may not matter at all.
After all "in the end, it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away" and funny enough "we always knew looking back on the tears would make us laugh, but we never know that looking back on the laughs could make us cry"!!
