Excerpt From Prescriptions of Dr. Love

We began our journey at the point of innocence when we were at the purest point in our lives as newborns. Those of us who were mothers were encouraged to think about what it felt like to be with our own babies when we became mothers and to feel the same serene, loving and calm joy we felt when we cuddled our own babies.  

To be present in the moment, I allowed myself to picture myself as a baby and I imagined that I must have been bundled up in a pink blanket, with dark hair, wide soft eyes, an innocent face and a pure consciousness. The feeling of being that way overwhelmed me and I cried tears of joy. I allowed myself to smell myself as a newly bathed baby, sweet, peaceful, loving and calm. I let myself see how beautiful I really was to my gorgeous mother as she held me close, soothed me and whispered sweet words of love into my ears. As I measured how far I arrived into life, I had a deep sense of how our senses are assaulted by toxic experiences and feelings. I felt overwhelming grief that I was not that baby anymore. As I observed myself from the outside, I lamented that we could not be as pure and painless as we were when we were babies for the rest of our lives.  

As I transported myself into my teenage years, I stifled the need to giggle at the memories of myself playing in our wonderful neighborhood in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. My spirits soared as I felt the wind blow through my hair and the sun kiss my face as my best friend Suzan and I rode on bicycles through the streets. I felt an absolute rebellion at being privileged enough to ride a bike at a time when as a girl, such things were unusual, but not unheard of. I felt my strength at falling down, my joy at sharing my adventures with Suzan and at the same time lost because the days of such innocence had now ended.  

I recalled to memory a time when Suzan carried a meatballs dish, a very traditional Lebanese – Mediterranean dish known as Kebbeh. This dish is so delicious. The outside shell is made of fine wheat mixed with grounded meat and the inside is stuffed with a mix of grounded meat, onions and pine nuts. It’s simply delicious! Anyway, this pot of decadence had to be delivered for a certain meal that was being given for guests on that day. In our excitement and mischievous antics, we dropped them to the ground by mistake and then collected them and dusted the sand off. Suzan and I giggled with a lot of amusement and a little fear as we watched our family members eat the meatballs, unaware that they had been dropped, messed and cleaned up with the backs of our hands only. I felt that naughty streak again and yearned to be just a child once again.
