Saturday In Pajamas

Bruce Springsteen sings "I'm on Fire" in Paris in 1985.

Ha Ha, there was something very liberating about staying home all day on a rainy Saturday in my pajamas, working on my story! It feels good to have accomplished as much as I did with the amazing dancer's story after such a long time. I want to be done with it by tomorrow. The boys and their friends are off to the City again, and I have the quiet house to myself, listening to the rain again. I know this must sound just so boring and so middle-aged to you, but I waited all this past week for this day and did exactly as I pleased, a valuable fringe benefit of being middle-aged and single! I did have my talk with sweet Shervin, who came and watched a ballet videoclip with me, listened to Shahr-e-Ghesseh with me some, and listened to my unsolicited advice politely, defending his points of view honestly and vigorously. All I could do was to ask him to think about the stuff I was telling him, and he said he would (though now I wonder how seriously he would have taken me sitting here in my pajamas!). It was a very productive day, exciting in its own unique way. I wanted to post a rain song, but decided instead on a fire song! Have a good evening you all.

Nazy azizm salam, thanks for the shahr-e-ghesseh. I've never heard the whole story but I'm planning to do that sometimes soon.

I'm glad that you're satisfied with your progress- it's such good feeling. As staying home the entire day in your pajamas, it's something that I look forward to doing as well. I feel like I'm not rested enough and I can't focus properly. But today is sunny day and if I don't go outside I might not see the sun for couple of days;)
take care

Salam Khanoomi Jan:

Well, my dear, where you are, it will be a surprise if you have a sunny day! England is not best known for its sunny skies, I'm afraid. You sound like you are in good spirits, though, and I'm so delighted about that. I will come visit your blogs soon. Have a fabulous week ahead azizam.

Salam Golabi Jan:

Hee Hee, yes, I used to hate being by myself, feeling a little out of my element. I have learned to really enjoy my solitude and to accomplish things when I have the house to myself. Weekends are usually great for me, because as young people, my sons feel it is not a good weekend if they don't party, and older people (me!) think it isn't a good weekend if we don't rest! Kisses to baby Bardia. Be happy azizam.

I hope you have enjoyed your sunny Sunday thoroughly. I did in my own way. Thank you for your kind comment. I posted a bit of the story again tonight. I am awaiting my go ahead before I post the entire thing. You will like this story, I do believe.

Shahre Ghesseh is by this time a national treasure for Iranians. It is upon everyone to have heard it at least once, because you can see references to its text and meaning in Iranian contemporary lingo and culture. Do listen to it when you can. I will explain more about this in future posts soon. Have a fabulous week ahead my wonderful friend.
