Offered me The Penable Award
Do you know Saba Niaz Siddique?
She is my new twin sister. And I’m very, very proud to have first been named twin sister.
No – she’s my twin sister so much better!
I knew Saba from a poem : Red.
Her red is the red of absolute love.
That of the sharing of hearts, of piety and faith.
I never left her page. She offers peace, gentleness, restraint.
And now she offers me this award, to me ! I don’t know the same red : mine is the red of battle and obstinacy. It’s much less pretty. This young woman shows me the way to the heart.
I don’t think I really deserve this distinction – I’m only here to bring to the forefront people who are more talented than me.
But my twin sister asked me, so, my goodness, I answer :
1: Where does peace really exist; heart or mind? Why/why not?
I know the location of my heart, the one that sends red blood to keep me alive. I know the location of my mind, which prevents that red blood from dominating my thoughts.
I don’t know the location of my soul, which allows me to reach peace. Perhaps it still navigates between my heart and my mind.
But if I have to choose, I choose the heart. My heart doesn’t think. It doesn’t calculate. It loves. Or it doesn’t. That’s why it needs my mind a little bit.
2: Share some of your childhood memories 😊
If I have to tell a happy memory of my childhood, then I choose the beach of Ain El Turk. We used to go there to play sports. We’d kill our knees in the sand trying to run. We told ourselves that in France, they did “real” sports – and we didn’t know we were so much happier.
We’d go there after school – and build incredible castles out of wet sand, around an old truck wheel.
We would go there when there was no school, and we would play – we were … children – not to drown in the whirlpool.
It was just a few steps from my house. I never wore shoes, I was rude, I fought like a ragpicker and we made up on the beach.
3: How to tie a tie?
Sweetheart, how do you ask me that question? I’m a girl!
I used to play with my boyfriends’ ties once in a while. Strangle them. To try for me – I just identified the noose, but it’s not so clean. As a girl, I would say that the prettiest way to wear a tie is to display it in the dressing room. Or give it to your wonderful lover. It’s so much more beautiful a man without a tie.
If I’m going to give this to other people, then I’m going to take this opportunity to put in the spotlight:
My first American friend – Outosego – and no, my friend, I don’t want you to bother writing anything.
But I would like everyone to go and see what you share.
My second American friend, who speaks the truth about her country – and it feels so good to hear her voice and that of her friends – especially in these strange times: Crystal.
Then, of course – he’s an Englishman – when I read him, I feel like an English woman. Fortunately, we have some fundamental differences: he likes tea – dipping a biscuit in tea (and here, I’ve already had a heart attack) – and he often talks about English series that are totally unknown (in France – so everywhere) : Mr Wapojif
I mean, because I think I’m overreacting, right? – but I can’t not send you to watch what Ola G. does. That man and his cronies are a gold mine when it comes to literature.
And finally – because I love him: Mister A. He’s a really good guy – his articles are really diverse, he’ll tell you about a denim jacket as well as a list of books to read.
In fact, there are so many other people! The ones I just discovered
Those who have gone a little farther away and will return
Those who don’t have a wordpress site at all and who are great…
It’s a terrible choice.
Never mind. You who read me, take it if you feel like it!
Do we need questions?
Well, let’s see:
1 – If you were a song, which one would you choose?
2 – What’s your trick to regaining confidence in life?
3 – Sweet mouth or salty mouth? What food do you crave? (wine is… sweet 🙂 )
The rules ? Well… i’m a cheater, i don’t like rules ! I think you have to get the message of this award across by going back to its origin, and for the rest, do as you please.
