Views from a Window Seat

The Emily Dickinson Museum sponsors an annual walk from the Homestead on Main Street in Amherst to a nearby cemetery to mark the poet’s death in May of 1886.  This year I stood in the garden with about forty others, including five mother-daughter pairs, one dog named Phoebe, a young woman in a white dress (strapless), one man with a bunch of daisies, and one woman wearing a “I’m Nobody, Who are you?” t-shirt.  Some read poems around the theme of house there, then we walked down a green path to Evergreens, the house next door where Emily’s beloved sister-in-law lived. I was among those who read there, Poem 1609, which begins, “Who has not found the Heaven – below –/ Will fail of it above –“  The microphones weren’t great, and we competed with noise from trucks, cars, and lawnmowers, but while it would be good to hear the…

Waiting Room



Sitting here in this waiting room

Time elapsing

That craving collapsing

For addiction comes in different forms

Substances on the brink

The thought making me sick

And tired of that old life

Growing up

Maybe a wife

One day

Who’d be proud to say

This is my man

He is my superman


So I work my way up

Weaning off that sup sup

Replace it with a Salam

Surround myself with brothers who can

Look at the brighter side of life

But not forgetting the struggles that face

Which brings out the faith

In the One and also each other

A stable unit, foundation, Ummah

The past is left for my pen to fill

Advise and knowledge maybe I could instil

To my youngers

Left bare in this jungle

Easiness disguising the real uphill  struggle

This is true. When is the right time?


At this moment of time, I am 26 years old…the dilemma is when is the right time to have kids? when does anyone know when they are really ready? And what about finances or getting a house first? Does the house have to come first before having kids?

My mom and dad only in their later years were able to get a house. Prior to, it’s been mainly renting or even earlier when they first started out they were living in the basement beneath my grandparents’ house. And LOOK! We turned out okay.

I feel ready to commit my life to another being. There’s enough love in this heart of mine to share.

And I have what they call “baby fever” almost nonstop.

To me it has always been difficult to figure out what it means for me to be a female, a feminist, and learning to follow my own…

Little Yarn Monsters!

Love this.



Aren’t these little guys the cutest??? And the best part is they encourage pretend play, and have a great texture!!

So how’d we do it??



  • Yarn (any kind/color)
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes (not pictured)
  • Glue (Any fabric glue, or hot glue)
  • Something to wrap the yarn around (a ball, cup, your hand, a fork)

Step One:


Wrap the yarn around your object, I preferred this ball, but you can use a cup, your hand, or even a fork. (The fork will make MiniMonsters!) Continue wrapping your yarn for as long as you’d like, i’m about 1/4 of the way done here. Remember, the more yarn you use the fluffier your Monster will be!

Step Two:


Slowly, and very carefully remove the yarn from your object. You want to keep the yarn as together as possible!

Step Three:


Tie a strip of yarn in the center of your bunch. It should look like…

This is good let me know your prices for illustrations, if you do that.


I made a few studies (sketches) for the cover of a children’s book I am planning to write and illustrate. This one is my favorite so far. I want to include Babar in the story or make him the main protagonist if Little Miss Sasi would not mind.
