Fabulous post Leslie .. Reminds me of the ‘ Spit and Sawdust Pubs ‘ of long ago one such was called ‘ The Case Is Altered ‘ not these modern names but a pub with history of its drinkers … Ian ⭐️😊👍


This is a 12″ x 16″ oil on canvas called The Reception. This is a vignette in life where the wedding is over and the father of the bride and the father of the groom get together over a drink at the reception and discuss the meaning of life and their hopes and fears for the future union of their children.

Prayer is the cure for a lost soul, confused mind, and a broken heart…&…Namaz kaybolmuş ruhlar, karışmış zihinler ve kırılmış kalpler için şifadır.

Beautiful post as always Semra … Reflective and deep with so much meaning …. Prayer for me is with my private thoughts with the father and freedom to express all that l feel, felt or thought … And to offer thanks for all he gave me … Never to ask for more than l need and to ask to help all others with their burdens daily … Amen .. 🙏



ssemrassAllah Almighty does not need anything; He does not need our worship, either. It is we who need worship. Worship is a kind of remedy for our spiritual wounds. It is the food for our spirit and the remedy for the diseases in our heart. Therefore, the reason why Allah Almighty orders worship is our own benefit.

unsaid words,
storms forecast,
and even the color pink
becomes a

Las crónicas del Otro Mundo

Un repentino corro de sombras beligerantes, un chispazo trémulo que se ensancha rápidamente en la oscuridad, la tierra temblando desde sus más hondos cimientos, mientras las manos tratan de ahogar el grito obtuso, desesperado, de quien es demasiado joven para entender lo que ocurre. El leve polvo que se desprende de los techos semiderruidos y el horror tomando las más disparatadas formas, aunque ninguna tan aberrante y mezquina, tan llena de iniquidad, como la que puede dibujar la sombra de la guerra en los ojos de un niño.

Dicen que la historia la escriben los vencedores, pero en Siria no ganará nadie, solamente habrán pérdidas, los jirones de una humanidad raída, desgarrada por el cinismo de la mentira mediática, que crece auspiciada por esa piara que se acomoda en la porqueriza del poder, tratando de ocultar los verdaderos intereses de la tragedia, los intereses particulares de los lobbies que financian los partidos, usurpando…
