No hope comes my way
No visage shows itself to me
That death will come one day is definite
Then why does sleep evade me all night?
I used to laugh at the state of my heart
Now no one thing brings a smile
Though I know the reward of religious devotion
My attention does not settle in that direction
It is for these reasons that I am quiet
If not, would I not converse with you?
Why should I not remember you?
Even if you cannot hear my lament
You don’t see the anguish in my heart
O healer, the scent of my pain eludes you
I am now at that point
That even I don’t know myself
I die in the hope of dying
Death arrives and then never arrives
How will you face Mecca, Ghalib
When shame doesn’t come to you.
Reading Mirza Ghalib's diwan tonight.I know a lot of my followers do not understand urdu so here is a translation of one of my favourite ghazals. Ghalib for me is a magical poet, his topics vary from love,devotion,lamenting the absence of his beloved,to the love of delhi,the mughal era,death,religion,struggle of life.He is one of the most diverse poets of both urdu and persian.His poetry is not only relatable but for all ages and all times.Going to share some of my favourite pieces this week.

Garth has been sick for the last couple days (acting sluggish and refusing all food and water) but I’m happy to say that he seems 100% better today. Though I will probably take him to the vet tomorrow just in case. ♥️ Anyone who knows me knows that my pets are my life, so I’m feeling relieved and grateful for this little guy.
Has anything good happened to you lately? It’s okay if the answer is no (these are strange times), but I would love to hear your happy stories if you have them.

Qotd: Are you going to participate in the #owlsreadathon2020? If yes, which books are on your tbr? 📚🦉
Hey there my little lemons🍋
Soooo after my best friend explained to me what the O. W. L. s readathon even is, i decided to participate! And bcause I apparently like to suffer, I choose "Healer" as my career which means a minimum of 8 books for me. Yeiii.
I don't have my full tbr list ready yet but once I have, I'll share it with you guys! I'm super hyped about this bcause I have nothing else to do all April long so I really hope that I'll make it.
Stay at home and stay healthy xx

Hello bookworms 🐛!!!!
Different kind of post today.
I have been wanting wall bookshelves for awhile now and my amazing boyfriend and his stepdad put them up this week! 🤓🙌 Being home pretty much all day everyday finally was able to do this!
I took video clips of where my books were and how the wall was before the shelves and I got video clips of how I was organizing everything.
You can also see my tv and that I was watching The Office or Top Model lol. Needed something in the back as I was organizing and reorganizing lol.
So happy! Ill share better up close pictures soon! 📚
Also idk why but sometimes the clips of the top shelves were just a little cut off

Ćao ljudi! Pre svega želim da vas pitam kako ste? Kako provodite vreme? No da se vratimo na ovo umetničko delo od knjige. Definitivno najdraža knjiga svih vremena. Mogao bih je čitati bilo kada. Tako je lepo napisana i po mom mišljenju nekako pitko. Razmišljanja glavnog lika su tako dobro predstavljena. Eni da ona jeste uvrnuta ali meni je jedna od najdražih negativaca. Ako tek počinjete sa Kingom ja bih vam je preporučio! 💛📚😁🥀
Ljudi inače ovaj prelepi crtež je rad Mome Kapora! 😍😁📚🥀

Currently working on my capstone essay about the re-enactment of trauma in Irish women’s literature. My writing is focusing on the historic and contemporary climate of the patriarchy in Ireland that devalues narratives of girlhood and in the process devalues the trauma addressed in those narratives and in the outside world. I thought maybe you’d be interested in seeing my work from home space so here it is! The desk was my Poppa’s and my mom and I moved it back into my room when I started zoom classes! Where is your favorite place to work from home?

Hello @rainbowcratebookbox !! •
I’m so excited for the release of your boxes, for many years now I’ve enjoyed reading books within the LGBTQ+ community including some of my favourites such as Red, White and Royal Blue, They Both Die at the End, Simon vs. The Homosapiens Agenda and so many more. •
Here’s a little about me, my name is Tatiana and I’m from Canada. I’ve been studying in Graphic Design and I’ve had this account for a little under a year! My favourite genres to read in are fantasy and dystopian but no matter what I need me some romance! My favourite author is Cassandra Clare and Malec is my favourite couple of all time, whether that be through literature or film they own my heart!! 🙌🙌 •
I would love to become a rep for your new boxes and promote your products on my page. I’m excited to see what LGBTQ+ themed books will be with the boxes as we can never run out of good ones! •
Thanks for the opportunity and I can’t wait for your launch! 🥰 #rclaunchrepsearch

I hope you’re all having a good time 🤗
I’ve always wanted to come back here because I miss sharing my opinion on books and, as I’m stuck at home for an unknown amount of time, I believe it’s the perfect moment to do it. (By the way, I deleted my previous pictures and changed my username : it’s a fresh new start).
So here is my first picture, with one of my favorite bookshelves and the best book I’ve read this year. I’m not gonna dwell on it because it’s a book by a French author but it is nonetheless amazing! I’ll be back soon with books that I’ve read in English.
Stay home and safe while reading (I hope) amazing books 📖 (and don’t hesitate to share your favorites!)
Confinement oblige, il faut trouver des occupations diverses. Quand je ne lis pas, j’essaie d’être créative. Et ça fait depuis (trop) longtemps que je souhaite revenir sur bookstagram pour partager mes avis lectures. (Pour info, j’ai supprimé mes anciens posts et changer mon username pour un tout nouveau départ). Cette période s’annonce donc comme parfaite : j’ai du temps libre et en plus il fait beau, donc ça donne un bon teint aux photos 😂
Aujourd’hui, je commence par vous partager l’une de mes bibliothèques avec à l’honneur (même s’il se fond dans le décor) mon coup de cœur de ce début d’année : A la place du cœur de Arnaud Cathrine publié chez @collectionr .
En lisant cette trilogie, je suis passée par toutes les émotions inimaginables.
Je me suis attachée à Caumes comme on s’attache à un ami proche. Que ces livres se passent dans Paris (tome 2 et 3, du moins), une ville où j’adore flâner m’a fait du bien : ce sentiment de familiarité a apporté un petit quelque chose en plus à l’histoire. De plus, de nombreuses thématiques sont abordées avec justesse. J’ai fini cette trilogie avec les larmes aux yeux, de bonheur et totalement comblée.
Je ne peux donc que vous conseiller de les lire !
Voilà, j’espère que vous allez tous bien, que vos lectures vous permettent de changer d’air et de quitter ce monde en crise pour quelques heures.
Et n’hésitez pas à partager vos derniers coups de cœur !

I’ve been home since the 12th and decided to take this time to get through some of my more daunting books. I started From Hell about a year ago and it’s a pretty heavy book. It’s a story about a conspiracy theory about who Jack the Ripper is and it goes all the way to the top! It does the classic Alan Moore thing where it spirals into complete madness. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Read Recs #67- The Jetsetters by Amanda Eyre Ward •
From the Publisher- When seventy-year-old Charlotte Perkins submits a sexy essay to the Become a Jetsetter contest, she dreams of reuniting her estranged children: Lee, an almost-famous actress; Cord, a handsome Manhattan venture capitalist who can’t seem to find a partner; and Regan, a harried mother who took it all wrong when Charlotte bought her a Weight Watchers gift certificate for her birthday. Charlotte yearns for the years when her children were young, when she was a single mother who meant everything to them.
When she wins the contest, the family packs their baggage—both literal and figurative—and spends ten days traveling from sun-drenched Athens through glorious Rome to tapas-laden Barcelona on an over-the-top cruise ship, the Splendido Marveloso. As lovers new and old join the adventure, long-buried secrets are revealed and old wounds are reopened, forcing the Perkins family to confront the forces that drove them apart and the defining choices of their lives.
Can four lost adults find the peace they’ve been seeking by reconciling their childhood aches and coming back together?
My grandmother, also from Georgia, takes across Atlantic cruise every year. I feel like this should have been called the cruisers and not the Jetsetters. I appreciate The Jetsetters as a fun, easy, beach read, and definitely something to distract you during covid-times. I will say, if @hellosunshine plans to miniseries this one, they’re going to need to spice it up a little. The family drama is PG-13 at best. Or maybe I’m just callous as an Irish Catholic with 4 siblings and countless cousins. •

It's been a little over two weeks since we started self-isolating. I've been trying to post lots of green, wood and meadow images. In part, to inspire you and free your imagination if you're stuck somewhere. In part, because spending time outside, among the plants and the little beings, makes me feel calmer and more hopeful.
But not every moment is like that. Or like this either. Yesterday I spent an hour looking at the birds and learning their names. Today I've already cried twice, felt woefully inadequate, missed my little creature comforts (the clothes, books, knick-knacks) that aren't with me now. I've been sad and mad and frustrated.
And now I find myself coming back to my journal, to the Marcus Aurelius pages my father sends me over text, to my own breath. 'The whole Universe is change and life itself is what you deem it'; 'Habitual recurrence to the Harmony will improve your mastery of it'; and 'Live not as if a thousand years were ahead of you. Fate is at your elbow; make yourself good while life and power are still yours'. I'm feeling this as an intensive practice of recurrence to the Harmony. On an individual level, in my own spirit and mind, in my rituals and thoughts. Also in the collective- how can we recur to the Harmony? How can we accept change and make ourselves Good? No conclusions, just real-time musings.

Is it just me or is time going by reaaaallly slowly?! I can’t believe I was at Disneyworld just 4 weeks ago, and everything was fine there. Feels like forever ago.
Also, I miss bowling😂 I was literally at the top of my game when this all happened and now when I go back I’m gonna suck lol
Toilet paper update- I’m currently at about 2.3 rolls left. Living on the edge😬
Have you guys still been exercising and stuff? Staying sane?
