On December 26th 2007 I had written, "I'm attacked by some for not being "moderate" enough, and others for not being "religious" or "faithful" enough. I think I must be doing something right - but does this have to be such a lonely path?"

On October 30th 2009, the answer is still... silence...

I await patiently. In ma' al 'osr yusra...

The road is indeed lonely and there are others who walk the same distilled and somber path but we don't take notice at times.
I feel the same you do but I'm too "extreme" for most instead of temperate.
My values and political platforms are unlike 99.9% of those in my community,thus I stick out like a sore thumb. At first it was hard but you get used to the solitude and learn to cope.
I know I'm stronger for being able to adjust and handle my surroundings while refusing to compromise my values.
I'm babbling here so I'll cut out whatever else I had in mind to say.
All you should know is that you aren't alone,there are other on the same path you are .. we're just either in front of you or lagging behind.
We'll manage to meet each other in the end.

Keep up the good work Maysaloon,the blog is magnificent and I don't believe you get to hear that enough.

"social isolation" is often the price of gaining self awareness..

no one ever represents an absolute consensus..

we all feel as you do in one way or another..

perhaps that may be a consolation.. :)
