Things that remind me of you

As I was sitting in one of my classes, my heart turned to you and countless memories and images raced through my head as I reminisced.

Red and white geraniums
Olive trees
Red poppies in April
Lux soap
Old black and white Egyptian TV shows
Traditional argila
stray cats
Kanafe na'ame
Kusa mahshi

One can maintain an identity even if she does not speak the language, practice the religion or live the culture. Family ties and claims to authenticity are enough. When you were there, I belonged. Thank you for giving me that gift!
