A message from Brigid ....

I have been a blogger since 2005. At the height of my blogging busy-ness, I had "a small stable" of blogs on different topics: social and political commentary; desert spirituality; food; waste and ....

A few years ago I called time and ceased blogging altogether - although there was an occasional post. I had called it quits. I am an aged woman these days with a couple of serious illnesses. I am not allowed to drive. I am no longer active in organisations. I think it fair to say that I am housebound. I am active on Facebook, although I am not there as often as once I was. I have decided to embark on a re-entry into the blogging world ... beginning with The Trad Pad and, possibly, a return to my food blog, Oz Tucker. I have always used a lot of photographs on my blogs ... and I miss not being out and about with my camera.

The Trad Pad has been my blog for the lovely things of life. The controversial or political has seldom intruded. Occasionally, the spiritual has found its way in, but I kept spirituality for the blog, Desert. I don't yet know if I will revive that. I will stick pretty much to food and the lovely things of life. If I have some regularity with those two categories, I feel that I will be doing well. I hope that, with this blog new friendships can be formed and old friendships renewed; new lovelies discovered; new reflections can enter into the meaning of modern life. I would love to hear from you - particularly if you have suggestions for new topics to enter into the conversation. So, it is a new year. Let's see what it has in store, what it can bring to us. And I hope that those who share the spirit of The Trad Pad can spread the message of a world of beauty, the creativity of humanity, and the joys of simplicity and tradition. ~~~ February, 2017

Ramadan crafts and Ramadan knowledge

The text across the top of this blog says what it is all about.  I keep this blog free of sound offs and heavy stuff and put them on The Network.  I prefer The Trad Pad to be a place of sweetness, light and beautiful things.  However, we are living in a world/a nation which is increasingly multi-cultural, multi-faith, and interfaith.  And this is the month of Ramadan.  Across the world, Ramadan is huge as Christmas across the world is huge.  So I am seeking to explore with Trad Padders what Ramadan is all about.  With these thoughts in mind, I explored what might be in keeping with this place.  And so it is that I present you, dear Trad Padders, with Karima's Crafts.

In turn, the banner above led me to this site : The Wonderful Art Garden for Muslim Sisters
Karima's site has a Ramadan section.
Many of the crafts in this section can be adapted
for other reasons and seasons.

For a more precise knowledge of what Ramadan means in the Muslim faith,
