Hi friends,

Thanks for being a part of this space where I've had the chance to share over the past two months. I just read a Gibran Khalil Gibran quote that's really making me think about what this space is and how to use it in a way that honors me, you, and our expressions.

"And you, the real poets, forgive us. We belong in the New World where men run after worldly goods; and poetry, too, is a commodity today, and not a breath of immortality." 

I would love for this online space to evolve into a shared space between us. For your support to be in support of my whole self, and for me to give not outputs, but my whole self in return. Here in the "Community" tab, please feel free to share a piece of your self - a poem, a song, a thought or two. Also feel free to create something in response to something I've posted, or reach out if you're interested in collaborating (I know your secret talents, all of you) -- poetry and music, poetry and art, poetry and dance... The floor is yours :)

With love, Mashael
