territories

Tsuu T’ina (Sarcee) woman and child.

The Tsuu T’ina is a first nation from Canada. Although their traditional territory on the Great Plains was extensive, their territory is now restricted to the Tsuu T’ina Nation 145 Reserve in southern Alberta. They were originally noted by explorers for their bison robes and fine buckskins, handcrafted saddles and cherry bows.

PSOTW: Allie, David/Jake; secret weapon

For the prompt:  Anything with David and the Lourdes sisters (though Nat is only there in spirit)

and also a bit this prompt:  One of Jake’s sisters catches David looking at Jake as goopily as Jake looks at David and realizes they are equally ridiculous human beings when it comes to each other

Have some Christmas in July!

Someday I’ll explain it to you, why they came, why they won’t ever go away. But I’ll tell you how I survive it. I make a list in my head, of all the good things I’ve seen someone do. Every little thing I can remember. It’s like a game. I do it over and over. Gets a little tedious after all these years, but… there are much worse games to play.

العينُ تُغْمِض ُ، ثمَّ تَنظُرُ ، سائقُ السيارةِ الصفراء ِ، مالَ بِنا شَمالاً نائياً عن بابها ، و القُدس صارت خلفنا.

والعينُ تُبصرُها بمرآةِ اليمين ِ، تَغَيَّرَتْ ألوانُها في الشمس ِ، مِنْ قبلِ الغيابْ.

إذ فاجَأَتْني بسمةٌ لم أَدْرِ كيفَ تَسَلَّلَتْ للوَجْهِ ، قالت لي وقد أَمْعَنْتُ ما أَمْعنْتْ :

يا أيُّها الباكي وراءَ السُّور ِ، أحمقُ أَنْتْ؟
أَجُنِنْتْ؟

لا تبكِ عينُكَ أيها المنسيُّ مِن مَتنِ الكتابْ
لا تبكِ عينُكَ أيها العَرَبِيُّ واعلمْ أنَّهُ في القدسِ مَن في القدسِ
لكنْ لا أَرَى في القدسِ إلا أَنْتْ ! ✨⛔
