Solo Prayer

Pomegranate Harvest Festival in Gilan's Anbooh Village, near Roodbar. See more photos here.

Being a friend to many is a continuous stream of joy and happiness to me. I celebrate my friends' victories, enjoy their happiness, and rejoice in their celebrations of dreams realized. My friend Mani always teases me in how happy I am somedays because a friend of mine has had something good happen to him or her, as though that good thing happened to me! True friendship, however, means that sometimes I have to join in my friends' worries, fears, and frustrations. My friend nearby is agonizing over a difficult dilemma tonight. When I received the call, all I could do was to listen and to try and say reassuring things in a situation that looks and feels bleak and sad, making hot tears escape my eyes and my heart to ache with fear and worry. It was hard to say that we should stay optimistic and positive and to send good vibrations to the unfolding crisis. Later, I sat down to a prayer for him and for his loved one. I can do no more and no less for someone who thought to call me first in his moment of desparation. Pray I do.

نازی جان من جدا به تو برای داشتن دوستانی از همه ی دنیا با انواع فرهنگها حسودیم میشه و به این مشخصت افتخار می کنم ...
من فکر میکنم تو اینقدر خوبی و اینقدر مهربون و با آداب معاشرتی که همه از ارتباط داشتن باهات احساس خورسندی و افتخار می کنن ...
و این باعث میشه از همه ی اقوام اطلاعات جالب و خوبی جمع آوری کنی و از تجربه هاشون استفاده کنی ..
من که جدا به داشتن دوستی مثل شما ،شایدم بهتر باشه بگم خواهر بزرگتری مثل شما افتخار می کنم و امیدوارم ما رو هم در تجربیاتت مثل همیشه شریک کنی...
