Few weeks ago after I finished our London masquerade-ball event in aid of street children in Senegal, I told my friends, now I am going to focus on raising awareness about the drought that affecting the lives of people in Somaliland.
So I raised my hand in dua and asked God to enable me to go to Somaliland so can help them. Don’t underestimate sincere intention and powerful dua, because God listen and He provided me with the opportunity to be at services of others. I found myself few days ago in Somaliland visiting camps and hearing stories from the people I aim to serve.
I was reminded by the people I was blessed to share this opportunity with that God has selected us by name to make this journey, to take to the skies, to land in Africa, to witness the drought, to hear the stories, to live the issue, to understand #climatechange, to save lives, to make a change, to receive the dua of those in dire need, to raise awareness and here I am spreading the message.
On Monday 4th November 2013, Peace House in London welcomed a conversation with Mark Gonzales on staying lovely in times of painful ignorance.
As the spectacular fireworks was displaying on London Sky, Mark has managed to bring colours into our life via his words and energy.
I noted down the below quotes from his event which was titled “Poetic Secrets to Surviving the Idiots”
“Love let the lovers be loved”
“In a world that tends to reduce everything to figures and numbers, we do not have to forget that 1 million people is one person one million times”
I invite you all to access his world and integrate into his poetry. It will for sure wage beauty in your life and he welcomes you to embrace it.

Audience with Mark Gonzales
My photo with Mark came after exchanging conversation about healing process and creativity. He introduced me to a new book by Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way, a course in discovering and recovering your creative soul. I have indeed bought the book, and shall dedicate a review in a new post once I complete the course with courage.
Many thanks to The Islamic Human Rights Commission @ihrc for organising this event, which brought us all warmth and joy.
