Wow! a jasmine flower is certainly much different in size from a magnolia blossom. Just goes to show that you can never tell from a photo! I love the scent of jasmine, too. I recently took a course on essential oils, and jasmine was, of course, presented as an important oil/scent.
Yes, I've been interested in mysticism since I was a child. I have heard of the author you mentioned, and have intended to read something of his, but somehow I end up reading other things instead. Will have to change that.
I read all sorts of stuff, and so many of my books are not entered on my shelf yet. I'm a librarian, currently serving a pharmacy/chemistry/natural products research library.
Nice to make your acquaintance, Yasmeen. Thank you for the recommendation.
Enjoyed looking through your books! I love Daphne DuMaurier. I saw the blossom on your profile picture, and was intrigued because it looked so much like a magnolia blossom, which is the "official flower" of my state. So I was curious. Ironically I have never read a Grisham book!
Just to let you know that you've solved the riddle. I've given you a new sheet of paper to post your riddle on THE RIDDLER #14. http://www.shelfari.com/groups/28100/discussions/273647/THE-RIDDLER-14-riddle-me-this-
Eid Mubarak to you too. I just opened by mails today. We celebrated Eid on Friday 10th so today is the 3rd day. The night before Eid, we usually have a group of people from the nearby Masjid, about 30 of them this year, who came to the house to say the "Takbir". 1st day of Eid usually starts with the Eid prayer at the Masjid followed by a visit to the graveyard and then receiving guests and family friends. After the Maghrib prayer, busy shooting photos of fireworks played by the neighbours' kids. 2nd day was pretty quiet and boring so went for the 'Piranha' movie at the nearby mall with my niece and nephew in the evening. This afternoon I will be going to an 'open house' hosted by a friend.
I had colon cancer which was a mid life surprise, but all is well. The books are available from the online bookstores....Amazon, B & N or Borders. Or you can get from my publishers. Xlibris on the first three and Nightengale Press on the newest release.
