Silence, Love and Respect


My mom gave me a box of pastels when I was quite young. She always believed in me and my talent and she was the first one to encourage me to draw and paint. She would buy me brushes, colorful paint, quality paper and new pencils every time she had a chance.

Lately I found that old box of pastels. Many stubs were so old, I had to scribble to find out their exact color!

The smell, the brightness of colors, the texture reminded me of my childhood. I felt like drawing hearts and flowers again...

Silence is a tribute. To the beautiful and powerful yet silent things that happen in this world. Subhanallah.

The Heart is a message to myself. A lesson I should learn. To love and respect myself. Incha'Allah.

It seems we cannot love others if we don't love ourselves first...
