@ilona.yusuf bought us excellent smoked trout from Oak and Smoke @realfoodfest at KX. We made a lentil and leek salad with it for supper on a weeknight. We finished the remainder at brunch today. I made an omelette with plenty of chives and smoked trout with dollops of creme fraiche into which I stirred some lemon zest and white pepper. This is the kind of omelette eaten straight from the skillet with bread.

The Chaukhandi #tombs form an early #Islamic #cemetery situated 29 km (18 mi) east of #Karachi, was first time discovered by farman Hussain Jokhio who was the chairman of Garib Awam Party, in #Sindh province of #Pakistan. The tombs are remarkable for their elaborate sandstone carvings. They were mainly built during Mughal rule sometime in the 15th and 18th centuries when Islam became dominant. #pakistan #travelogue #travellife #wanderer #wanderlust #travelgirl #canadianblogger #historical #monuments #pakistaniart #visitpakistan #sindhiculture #graveyard #chawkandi #chawkandiart #tombstone #traveldiaries #karachigram #karachilife #architecturelovers #architecturaldetail #travelworld #islamichistory #ig_pakistan 🎶🎶Music: Mandoline Concerto in C: II Largo 🎶🎶

When I was 15, I sat in despair one day in a creaky old bus that was winding its way through central Mexico (that’s another story), trying to decide if I truly believed in God. Not necessarily God with a big white beard looking down from a Biblical heaven, but some kind of sacred spirit above, beneath, and within all things. I’d always had a deep, instinctive faith (even as a small child) in a sacred dimension to life, a Mystery I didn’t need to fully define in order to know it, feel it, experience it. But recent grueling events had shaken my faith and closed that connection. Now, I realize that sitting and railing at God is practically a cliche of teenage angst; that doesn’t make the experience any less urgent at age 15, and I was in a dark place. “Okay,” I said, throwing the gauntlet down to whatever out there might be listening, “if there is something more than this, then prove it. Just prove it. Or I quit.” The bus turned a corner on the narrow, dusty road, and a gasp went up from the people around me. Above us, a rainbow arched through a bright blue, cloudless, rainless desert sky. Rainbows have been special to me ever since. I know the scientific explanation, of course, water and air and angles of sunlight and all that. But to me, they are always a message. They say: “The universe is a Mystery and you’re part of it.” And sometimes that’s all I need to hear; that’s all the answer I need, no matter what the prayer. #taikhoom #taikhoomphotography #photography #photographysouls #nikon #nikonphotography #d610 #net#netgeoel #netgeo #nikonworldwide #ig_pakistan #instagram #enterpreneur #bokhe #moodygrams #bokehlicious #dramtic #vsc#vscopak #vsco #dawndotcom #vscocam #artofvisuals #bokehkillers #etribune #pakistan
