Shafi Said

Peace of Mind is the name of Shafi's blog. The template that he chose for his blog is quite aptly put HIM; the old type quill that has fallen out of grace just like original thought in this day of age. Shafi has a handful of posts on his blog and out of them I would like to highlight a couple. The first one is the one that I read when I clicked on his link. The death of his friend and his feelings towards it. How life passes most of us by while we frolic in the sun believing in immortality due to age. He asks the questions that most of us are faced with when death comes too close to our lives. Human life is fickle and so is a human mind. We forget so easily that we are but visitors on this earth and death is there to remind us. Shafi also touches on issues of Somalia in his blog. His post on whether the elders have failed us is beautifully written and encompasses the youth desolute outlook at the land we called home to the ever present woman who has no choice but to work tirelessly and smooth away the wrinkles in her corner of the world. I would definately recommend for you (the reader) to check this blog out.

Beautifully reviewed as always SD.

Shafi's corner is indeed a treasure and I was more than delighted to find it.

My! thank you Sleepdepraved. I'm glad that you've enjoyed it, also more pleased i am that i am now part of the Somali Blogs.

Sorry about the confusion though, couldn't make my mind up as to the title of the blog, i guess i am not creative enough to come up with a decent title so i'l stick with Shafi's Corner! - thats untill my mind can do any better!

^^ :D don't worry FOC couldn't make up her mind on a template. We all need time to settle into our skin. Keep up the good work.

SD, I'm sorry about the template changes.. you know how I am (utterly indecisive) and how long it took me to settle for my personal one (2months :D)..

I'm just stressed out with my final year project and unable to set time for this blog. But I promise the readers and visitors, there will be alot of exciting stuff coming up in the near future.

True SD, i think i have finally decided that since you have edited your blog, i should stick to "peace of mind" no need to re-edit your blog!

Fallen Angel, Thank you very much for the kind words, and am also glad that you've enjoyed the blog. More poems are on the way!

FoC, Hope your final year project goes well, and you excel in it. looking forward to your work!
