Keep Moving...

I am off for the weekend. It was a rather melancholic week, so I’m glad it’s over. In the requisite quiet of melancholy, I did accomplish many chores and deadlines which I had put off for a long time, relieving me of some constant low-grade stress. I also met a very interesting person this week, providing one of the brighter spots of the week. Two of my friends had surgeries this week and I’m glad they have had good results, and that they’ll be alright. I leave you with the image of Leila Sadeghi, a beautiful young Iranian dancer (half-Iranian), who lives in our area. The picture shows her dancing with Irina Mikhailova at the Boom Festival in Portugal, in 2004. I love that look of concentration on her face, which somehow looks like it then runs all the way through her fingertips. Leila is daughter to an Iranian father and a Swiss mother, with definite emotional and artistic ties to Iran. You can go to her website and see for yourself, reading her biography there. In her website’s “Gallery” section, you can also look at her many photographs. I’m pleased to have found another delightful young Iranian. Enjoy your weekend, everyone! If you have to work, clean, wash, shop and cook, please then intermittently and frequently take time to eat, drink, sleep, hug, kiss, sing and dance! Take care and be good to yourselves and to those around you. Life’s too short. As for me, I want to do as little as possible this weekend, relaxing and getting myself out of this groove! I need to work on organizing some feelings and materials that have been causing havoc inside me, but which for various reasons cannot find their way into my keyboard yet. I might also go listen to Aleph Null's performance in Berkeley on Sunday night. If I do, I'll let you know about it. Be good y’all.

Thanks Serendip! So far, Friday night has been pleasant, spending it listening to the newly-revamped Rooze Haftom on BBC Persian with my family--a fascinating program which I highly recommend. I am writing a piece on this, but for now listen to it if you can. Thanks for coming by my friend.

Thanks for your lovely comments and more thanks for inviting me. I never reject your invitations; it was a very challenging game and I had a lot of fun with it. It just took me a long time to write.

And: Oh My,

شب از دیرباز خوش آیند بود زیرا خدا در آن به درد و دل می نشست
گرچه خدا آنقدر بزرگ بود که آسمان در آن گم
میشد

دل تمام این سالها به این فکر میکرد که عاشق آسمان
شود یا
خدا
*
دل آخر به نتیجه رسید
او باران را انتخاب کرد زیرا هم به اندازه خدا زود گذر بود
و هم آسمان را میشست
و همینطور
هر زمان که می آمد میهمانی دوست داشتنی بود
