Symphonies of a Lifetime
Clarion Rating: 4 out of 5
"Symphonies of Life is a wonderful spiritual undertaking that provides food for the soul. When reading Abid, I hear echoes of both the Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam and Rumi. Her poems are truly a monument to the region and one of the region's richer gifts of culture to the world" (Cory Lowell Grewell, PhD, assistant professor of English, American University in Dubai).
"Her work is, indeed, about the symphonies of life composed every day, by the high-born and the humble of this world. Each human composition is made of moments of deep contemplation, times of simple pleasure, or points where we find ourselves between a rock and hard place. These very moments are the stuff of life, and Eman's work brings us into the midst of it and shows us the subtle, transformative power of philosophic observation" (Sandra K. Alexander, American University in Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 2013).
