Periphery

a record of mundane things that have stuck in my mind, and what they may mean.

What's all this chatter?

I started the blog because I wanted to write regularly, and because I often feel like cleaning out my extremely messy mind. It's an urge to straighten up the odds and ends, and put my feeling and perceptions, and the nagging pictures and sounds in my mind into some cohesive format.

I also look for connection through blogs and blogging. I don't mean that I'm trying to look for a best friend (he he). I mean that I want to feel more in community with my fellow Muslims. I want to see how they are responding to all these new global situations. I want to see how they're changing the world. I want to be inspired to be better; I'm looking for my mirrors.

So, I talk and I hear others talking. And usually it's something I like, but other times it's excessive. It's like having mixing in too much sugar in your coffee, and gold decorations in masjids, and those pictures every kid made in third grade with the regulation tree and the house on the side and grass on the ground and the sun looking down from the upper left corner, with neat lines for rays of sunlight. Sometimes, it's just not relevant. Maybe a little like this posting?

Won't comment on the relevancy, but I like the imagery in the second to the last sentence. =)

your post reminds me of that song/poem:

"lines fill up with idle chatter,
if we fill our void that's all that matters

why are the drums so silent?
why can't we hear the rythem of believers marching to the Gardens as they strive..."
