Si il y a bien une langue qui m’a toujours intriguée et que je trouve magnifique autant à l’écrit qu’à l’oral c’est l’arabe. Et parfois je me dis que j’irais bien vivre au Maroc plus tard, apprendre la langue et la cuisine marocaine, habiter dans un riad avec des oliviers et une piscine, visiter des mosquées 🕌, m’acheter pleins de tapis marocains, me goinfrer de dattes au marché et me balader le week-end dans le désert avec mon dromadaire 🐪🌙
We had a terrific time printing with @sue.arrowsmith last week... Some exciting experiments on copper plates and photo etch plates. Thanks ever so Sue 🙌
“Demirin bakırla aynı olmasına, ya da bakırın altınla aynı olmasına gerek yok. Her biri eşsiz bir varlık olarak kendi görevini yerine getirir. Ama simya da bunun için vardır – herkes hazinesini arasın, bulsun, ve sonra da önceden olduğundan daha iyi olsun diye. Kurşun dünyanın artık kurşuna ihtiyacı kalmayana kadar rolünü oynar ve sonra kendini altına dönüştürmek zorundadır. Simyacılar bunu gösterir, biz olduğumuzdan daha iyi olmaya çabaladığımızda, çevremizdeki her şey de daha iyi olur.”
Paulo Coelho – Simyacı - Fotoğraf, NASA ——
“There’s no need for iron to be the same as copper, or copper the same as gold. Each performs its own exact function as a unique being. This is why alchemy exists, so that everyone will search for his treasure, find it, and then want to be better than he was in his former life. Lead will play its role until the world has no further need for lead; and then lead will have to turn itself into gold. That’s what alchemists do. They show that, when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.”
Paulo Coelho – The Alchemist
📚 We are starting another book club! 📚
This book club will be the same format as our first one; 1 hour long, virtual, and open to everyone! 📚The book we are doing is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. We will meet 1X per week for 4 weeks via Zoom.
📚The book is a quick read, yet SUPER inspirational and full of wise takeaways about following your dreams.
📚Let me know if you’re in by commenting below or DMing me!
📚Free for members, $10 for non members. Hoping to start in mid-September.
I have decided to add notes on this book. It’s mine so I can do whatever I want. Don’t hate... 😅 #thealchemist
Fancy a free cocktail at @thealchemistuk?🍸
On Thursday 29th August the bar will be offering customers a free cocktail in exchange for an item of non-perishable food. This could be a tin of beans, tinned soup, pasta packets or any other long shelf life food 🥫
All donations will go to the Friary in West Bridgford who are a charity which helps the homeless and disadvantaged.
You only need to donate one item for your free cocktail but larger donations are welcomed and encouraged (just ensure items are unopened and in date please)😁
Ever heard of 'free writing'?
This is a technique that can help you overcome periods of apathy and self-criticism, something that we as authors all suffer from at certain times 🤣
It basically means writing without thinking.
This is what I have just written...
''Hmm, I'm hungry. I wonder what I have in the fridge?''🤔
Well, that's all I've written so far, but at least it's a start! 😊
Is it only me who gets distracted?!
I wanted to eat #allthethings for breakfast today. #day3 of #whole30 and both @satya_s99 and I are doing great. And I have to admit, my body is loving eating #animalprotein. It says Thank You to me after each meal. (I’ve shut my brain off while eating it, but that’s a good thing. I need to shut my brain off more often). In the back of the picture is a copy of Middle School Matters, by @pfagell. Seems like it’s time to read that. Oh, and a copy of @paulocoelho#thealchemist , because every kitchen table should always hold a copy. Also pictured are our newly purchased #fannypacks. Admit it, they are so super cool, and way better than purses. Am I right @tribejenhicks ??
Collective energy. ✨
... So what’s stopping you from feeling joy, freedom and happiness each day? 🙌🏽
... What’s one thing you can do today to bring these feelings into your life?? 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽
There is a language in the world that everyone understands.
“It’s the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.” - excerpt from The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, my absolute favorite book. I think I’ve read it at least three times and cannot express how much the words in this book mean to me. If you haven’t read it yet, you definitely have to give it a try! 📚💫
Though this book is already known to many readers but still I wish to add my piece of review for it. The start was really intriguing but the way it should have been carried forward didn't hit the benchmark.
A boy from Spain gets to know that a treasure awaits him in the pyramids of Egypt and he being a shepherd sells his flock to gather enough money to meet the expenditure. He faced terrible challenges there. The story hit a new low when the boy started working with a crystal merchant. I didn't even like the character of The Englishman whose aim was to meet a real alchemist.
However the story geared up after the boy from Andalusia met the alchemist. The end was good and unbelievably surprising.... Pages-161
P.s- those who like this book please don't judge me because this is only my thought...😊 #instagram#instalike#bookstagram#harpercollins#thealchemist#books#bookshelf#bookreview
Out of the 100s of people we’ve invited to try Jiu Jitsu, 1 has been brave enough to step on the mat. Why? Probably because Jiu Jitsu looks painful, exhausting, frustrating. But to be honest, the first class will be the hardest. Then everyday you get to chip away at this incredible puzzle. It slowly stops being as hard. And the same is true for so many things- it’s always looks more difficult until you just try it. And so, with that we begin a weekly mini series of friends sharing stories on “My First Jiu Jitsu Class”. If you’d like to share, hit us up! #bjj#jiujitsu#share#stories#fight#warrior#thealchemist#quotes
