Don’t be in a rush
to unfold the contents
of your heart;

hold onto your wounds,
let each one grow inside of you
like waves gathering before the storm.

Though the rivers
are constantly whispering,
remember it is only because
they are still small,

while the ocean is vast
and fluent in every tongue
yet even she knows when to speak.

The Ashanti Home Touch Hotel

I was invited to photograph the opening night of this mesmerising hotel. It was full of intriguing characters. One of which, Ama Virgin, is the subject of an article and photo series I recently did for Accent magazine.

Many people are saying “I won’t be happy this Eid. Too many people are being killed in Gaza and Syria” I want to let you know that in Gaza they are getting ready for Eid themselves. They are currently shopping for clothes and sweets for tomorrow while bombs are falling. And I’m 100% sure it is the same in the beloved Syria and other places filled with oppression. This is very symbolic for us. Yes, many have been killed, but their spirit is not dead, and will not die. Yes, the oppressors may control their borders or other worldly matters, but the oppressors will never control their happiness, nor will they control your happiness. The Syrian and Palestinian people are strong people, and we have to trust that. I know it’s almost impossible to go through the day without thinking about it or feeling sad, and I don’t blame you. But for Eid, do me a favour, and try to stay happy.

Have a blessed Eid everyone. May we enter the next Eid with a free Palestine, and a free Syria. Ameen

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again - 

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone. 

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time. 

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.
