Sophy means wisdom (as in Philosophy, the “love of wisdom,”) and wisdom is “experience coupled with thoughtfulness of what was learnt.”

I’ve chosen that double-dip name for my blog (Sophy-wisdom), first because Sophy is my Christened name, spelt like that, with a “y,” and then because all my life I’ve been straining and struggling to find wisdom.

  1. Sophy, this is such a fun story about the phone call. I have heard so many like this– well, none quite as extraordinary– and look forward to hearing more on your blog.

    I have a little story, or rather, an anecdote. I have some glass cabinets for trinkets hanging on the wall to the left of my bed. They have been there for some years. On the night my father died, one fell to the floor (nothing broke, except the hook on the top of the cabinet and the top of the cabinet itself). I have heard that in many families this is common– a picture falls, or something similar. Certainly it was extraordinary. Somehow, I found it very reassuring.

  2. Hello Sophy!

    I’m thrilled to see your blog and will faithfully read everything you write! Your name is divinely assigned to you. I couldn’t think of a better fit.

    With tremendous affection,
    Dawn

    • I’m so glad you like my blog. I think of you Mishkat so often. How are you doing? I watched a report on the marshes of Iraq on PBS the other night. Were you involved? 10,000 blessings, sophy

  3. Nice post. I used to be checking continuously this
    weblog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful info particularly the last
    part 🙂 I deal with such information a lot. I used to be looking for this certain information for a very
    lengthy time. Thanks and best of luck.

  4. Dear Sopy,
    only a half hour, while I work my ordinary job, in my head were the words emerged: Book of Angels. I do not ask more from where, I sat to look on the internet. I found out you, your blog and your books!
    Thank Heaven, thank the Angels and thank you!
    Sonja (nickname: Sophia)
