The Imitation Game (2014) is simply brilliant

So I did go to Chicago yesterday, (Monday, 15 December 2014).

I am looking forward to spending more time in Canada.

I cried as I watched the movie.

The war, the homophobia, the sexism...

I understood the characters fight just to think and serve.

I look forward to spending more time in Canada.

I look forward to my travels to Israel.

I look forward to returning to London, England.

Someone in Canada told me if you look around the table and everyone there agrees with you - you have not done effective outreaching. (Please note I am paraphrasing.)

Sometimes I read Danny Ayalon's writing and I think, "Oh, should I share that?"

And sometimes I think about Danny Ayalon and what he did for me in 2010.

Metaphorically speaking, my table is diverse.

And "Joan Clarke's" conceptualization of marriage, as I have said I want Tamir to find me a man.

And then there are the Wonderful People in the Middle East and Some People in England and Some People in Scotland and some People in Ireland...and....

Allah knows I am grateful.

At 3:31- 3:40 is my heart...

As I told the Palestinian woman in June 2013 in Winnipeg, "I miss the sounds of......"

I do so very much miss the various dialects and accents and languages of the Middle East.

Or as the Syrian man told me at the Islamic Bank of Britain (Marble Arch branch), "I think maybe your father is an Arab, but you want to pretend something else."

Me:  Oh my God are you kidding me?!?!?!  Everybody in my family is BLACK-AMERICAN!!!.

Syrian man:  I do not believe it!

The "discourse" was finally stopped by the Woman Bank manager.  And I still smile at the look on her face when she like me was offended that I had been made an honorary person of Arab descent. I guess she saw the look on my face.

Still I even miss the complexity of the ethnic and racial dance in London, England. And I still remember the specifics of the dance in London, England's Ummah.

It will be good to be back in the World.

And I am very grateful.

When I Knew I Was in Love With Canada and Her People

I told them who I am and one of the many wonderful responses I got was from my Imam in Canada who said, "Debra I have to get the dishes rinses and in the dish-washing machine before the food sticks.

Me: You are not freaked out by what I told you?

Imam: Do you want me to be freaked out?

Me: Oh

Imam (with a smile and a shrug of his shoulders): Yeah oh.


When I Knew I Fell in Love With London, England and Her People Many, Many Years Ago

Pesky Man on Tube:  Where you off to Luv?

Me:  Oh God can't I just ride the train without being bothered?  I am going to church if you must know.

Pesky Man on Tube (whilst laughing):  Oh right you Yanks do love your religion.

Me:  No you People are God-less Motherfuckers.

Pesky Man on Tube (With a smile - a genuine smile):  M-o-t-h-e-r-f-u-c-k-e-r. I do love when Black Americans on telly say Motherfucker.  Do say it again Luv.

And The World Never Stops Dancing...And I Could Hold On No Longer

Indeed, I do love researching.

And once I am settled I have some traveling.





Documenting for Monday, 07 December 2014

So You Adjust Your Filter So As Not to Get Overwhelmed.

There are a million and one voices in London, England.

They are often LOUD and INTENSE.

They feed off each other.

If you don't adapt - and quickly you are overwhelmed.

But those voices and complaints and all other noises are of the World.

In London, England you lunch with all manner of people and you (everyone) walk away wondering exactly who you just shared tea with.

"And when you are grown you can admit you made a mistake." - Mr. Wilson (my father)

I miss the World.
