Upon leaving work today I noticed that it is the time of month for the sickle moon and star (Mars)-the very symbol of Islam. I cannot decide if I'm being whacked on the head by God or if I'm just noticing things because I've been researching Islam so much lately. Or both. Probably the latter. :P

Also, I got my book today: Voices of Resistance Muslim Women on War, Faith and Sexuality. I am very excited.

Also also, I feel awful. My spine is so out I can't hardly turn my head without pain, and much of what I eat and drink is making me feel ill. Time for detoxing of the body as well as the spirit, methinks.

Sorry to hear about your back and feeling out of sorts. Take some me-time and just relax, letting those toxins in your body flow out (hopefully, as quickly as possible). Thinking of you...
