Praying For The Dancers

I am off for the weekend. It was a fun and busy week, leaving me feeling somewhat accomplished! This week I received phone calls, emails, and visits I didn’t expect, and they all made me so happy. I know I must sound like a broken record to you all, but I was reminded again that the best things in life are free or don’t cost too much! My kids and I had been experiencing turbulences, so I kept quiet about them for a while. As the black clouds shift around us, soon I will write about them as I have wanted to do a lot. I leave you with images of Baluchi men performing the traditional Baluch dance. You know that in most of Iran, and particularly in eastern Iran (in Khorasan and in Sistan & Baluchestan provinces) there is a dance and dance moves called “choobi” or “choopi,” in which men in a group or a circle dancing together perform movements with sticks (choob). After each dancer performs moves in an independent circle, they come together into a larger circle, hitting the sticks against one another, and hitting the sticks of the dancer next to them, creating a fantastic sound which when added to the music and the moving sounds of the dancers, creates an exciting and invigorating visual and audio treat, charged with energy and joy. It is truly awesome. I dedicate this post to those honest and decent people of Sistan & Baluchestan who have been affected by the Gono storm, and who are now homeless, hungry, thirsty, tired, and worried. Please don’t forget them in your prayers. Have a good weekend y’all and be good.

Salm Kamrooz Jan. Thank you for coming and thank you for the compliment. I went to your blog. You, yourself, have excellent writing! Though I go around reading many young Iranians' blogs, I never cease to be amazed at the quality of writing and the concise thinkng of your generation. You make me proud. You write English, also, and your English writing is good, too. I couldn't figure out how to leave you a comment on your blog (I get easily confused!). Come back and visit again. Shad bash.

Thank you Serendip Jan! Yes, he is a super bright young man, and my heart feels good when i think that Iran's future will be in the hands of the young Iranians a few of whom I know. And I feel lucky too, when heaven knows how, these bright people find me and leave me a comment! This is a really good day for me. Be good.
