… ever walk on this thing!
On one side a sheer rock face, on the other a 4,000ft drop – and all to separate the brave traveller from a deadly plunge is a 3ft-wide, 2.5in thick walkway. And if that is not enough to bring terror into the pit of your stomach, the path running alongside a Chinese mountainside is made out of glass, allowing a crystal-clear view of what is beneath you.
So, if you have the courage and you are not afraid of heights, then you can afford to walk on this very special skywalk in your visit to Tianmen Mountain, the second national forest park in Zhangjiajie region, China.
While I imagine the views to be out of this world, I just wouldn’t be able to calmly walk across the bridge or enjoy anything I see.
And in the spring, just breathtaking.
I guess if it’s foggy then looking down won’t be as horrifying
And if you make it to the end, this is where you end up.
Did I mention how much I enjoyed San Antonio? After my 3 posts about it, I should mention that while you’re there you must stop by the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch. I guarantee you will have a fun filled experience wether you’re an adult or a child. The drive through will easily take a couple of hours, aside from the cafeteria and petting zoo. Get the coupon from their website and a couple of food bags, and you’re all set.
Two of them stuck their heads inside the car, but due to the surprise element and the kids screaming, I wasn’t able to catch that shot.
They were pushing each other to be fed.
I had the opportunity to meet Robert Ford, the US ambassador to Syria, this past week. I was invited for my efforts promoting Arab Studies in the city of Houston. The meeting was also attended by a number of Syrian, Arab and American professionals, including some members of the so called “Syrian Opposition.” I have no intention of recounting all the political issues discussed at the meeting.
An unexpected find this morning, thanks to a friend. These paintings are really beautiful! My favorite is the 6th one.
So it’s been a while I know, but I’ve been swamped. Even more then I usually am, and it’s getting very challenging to fit more into this crazy schedule of mine. For all you mothers out there who need a little push, keep on moving forward, and remember little progress is better than nothing.
Found this post yesterday as I was searching for some inspiration and decided to share since I’m starting a new identity design project, will definitely post more about it as I make some progress. I really love the ones with bright and rich colors, and of course the awesome typography.

So it’s been a crazy couple of weeks, and a good couple of months since I posted about design or typography. I’ve had these for a while and only now did I get to share.
Last November my husband was invited to a workshop about Qur’anic Studies and came back with this poster and brochure, and I just loved the design. It is very simple and elegant, and that’s the way I like things
I absolutely love the combination of the English and Arabic type, plus the fonts selected. They perfectly match the subject presented and the colors black and gold, compliment the design even more. I’ve always wanted to mix the Arabic and English type in my designs, but never really got the chance. Finally, I will be starting a project soon that combines the two, and I can’t wait. Of course, when I’m done, I will share
As many of you dear followers know, I am of Syrian origin, and as you also must know, the situation there has been getting worse. Aside from all the destruction that has affected the country, it is estimated that over 60,000 people have been killed -many of them women and children. The number of refugees is over 700,000 in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, Turkey, and even Libya. Yes I have many family members who fled the country, but still many remain there.
For many months now, we watched events unfold while feeling helpless, and let me tell you it is not a good feeling. I’ve had few family members who reside in Europe visit the refugee camps in Jordan and Turkey, and what they’ve seen is beyond heartbreaking. The people of Syria, who opened their country to Iraqis during the war, Lebanese during their conflicts, and anyone in need, are now freezing and hungry. One Huffington Post headline read “Syria Refugee Camps Filled With Child Deaths And Winter’s Cold,” and I think that no child should die because they’re hungry or for the lack of warm shelter.
Since we’ve been informed that many of the containers and supplies that have been shipped to these camps don’t make it through customs, or in some cases get destroyed or stolen, we’ve decided to take action myself. We will gather as much as we can to buy these families the food, medicine, and warm clothes that they desperately need. A very close family member will travel to Lebanon and Jordan to personally do it, and make sure that these displaced families will actually receive those contributions, wether it’s food, medicine, clothes, or money.
Many friends have already been so gracious and generous by giving what they can, and it’s been very touching to realize the people actually want to help, you just have to ASK. I am very thankful to have such people in my life. This is your chance to help, if you are interested please contact me for details.
