It finally hit me this
spring, when my wife became so wrapped up in Ikebana, the Japanese art
of flower arranging, that posies kept flying into the house as fast as
Japanese vases kept arriving from Japan. Previously, it's only been
gardening that has occupied her. I buy a lot of the plants but I stay
out of the garden.
Graphic Artist and Photographer by day, avid actress and spoken word poet by night, Mariam has used her various creative outlets to fuel her writing since she was a little girl. Growing up in the United States before moving to Pakistan allowed her to see completely contrasting perspectives on life at an early age, and her writings reflect her unbiased and perceptive state of mind.
