A Day in Little Baghdad – عصرونية – Teatime

The world has changed a great deal in the last four months, but it does not mean that we can’t keep shining our love and light into the world. We are all able to access higher consciousness during these troubling times, to see the beauty surrounding us, and to spread light, peace, truth, and forgiveness by utilizing our skills and talents.

My space continues to be embroidered with words, stories, and visual work. My desire to share stories privately and in public continues as well, and after taking some time to adjust to the new way of life and catch up on major projects I’m working on behind the scenes, it’s now time to bring my blog back to life, mostly as a vlog. I’m starting with a series called A Day in Little Baghdad where, through my regular routines, you’ll get a glimpse of the Chaldean and Arab culture.

The first post is called عصرونية – Teatime, which the women in my family enjoyed a few days ago at a cousin’s house. It’s also known as merienda, a light meal in southern Europe as well as Hispanic America, the Philippines, and Brazil, usually taken in the afternoon or for brunch, and filling in the meal gap between the noontime meal and the evening meal, being the equivalent of afternoon tea in the English-speaking world.
