News about my village. February 1, 2014


I just finished this post and hit “publish.” And all my writing was lost. I’m sorry. I will reconstruct it tomorrow. I don’t know what happened. But I can’t go through it all again tonight. Sometimes I think someone is messing with me.

My family is ok for now. That’s the most important news. There is artillery fire in the two nearby villages up the mountain. It is almost constant. My nephews remain in the village.

There is some hope that the terrorists will surrender soon. We all pray that it is so.

When will this nightmare end? How much more can we take? I wish I could see a happy and bright future. I pray that it comes for all of us.

About Leila

I am a wife and mother. I am an Orthodox Christian. I am a Syrian American with family living in Syria. I am a also a yoga teacher and freelance writer. I recently described myself in a job pitch as "a person who's lived in Portland, Oregon for over 20 years with a passion for writing and a passion for all things Portland. I'm a foodie, knitter, wine and beer lover, bee-keeper (yep, I said it), mead and fruit-liqueur maker, organic gardener, home-canner, hiker, biker, runner, and occasional skinny-dipper. I’ve camped all over the state, I sail a sailboat that’s moored on the Columbia (o.k., I'm the first mate), and I spend a large percentage of my time at our beach house in Seaside." That about sums it up.
