I'm off to Camp. I don't think I'll be posting til Monday night. Have a good weekend all!

I'll leave you with the beginning of this beautiful little piece that veiled4allah posted:

The People of the Boxes

By Dawud Wharnsby Ali:

There were once some people who all saw their lives like empty boxes
They looked around the world collecting up the things they liked
They filled their lives in boxes with the goodies that they gathered
And they all felt in control, content and they all felt all right
They climbed inside their boxes, they settled with their trinkets
They neither looked nor learnt much more and closed their lids up tight
Once they fastened up their boxes they smiled there inside
And they all thought in their darkness that the world was clear and bright...

The rest is here



This blog is by far one of the most interesting I've come across for a while. Goes away from the usual "I-had-french-toast-for-breakfast-and..." type ones! Anyway I like the idea of the interfaith dialogue blog, what exactly do you have in mind? I'd love to chip in and play my part, Insha'Allah (God willing) Oh and yeah, Dawud Wharnsby Ali rocks.. :)
