Love, Olive Trees, and Me

Olive Harvest, Tarom, Zanjan Province. Photo by Morteza Elyassi, Fars, October 8, 2008.

This picture has had my mind engaged since yesterday. I have so many memories of olive trees, Northern Iran where they grow, and other small but important milestones and events in my life, somehow related to olives and olive trees. Take the following clip, for example. It is of Abbas Kiarostami's "Through Olive Trees." It is a movie first and foremost about love, if you ask me. I happened to be seriously in love (of the head over heels variety!) the first time I saw this movie. Forever in my mind, love and olive trees sit somewhere close to one another!

Have a good Thursday you all!
