Divine feeling

Is there any feeling more divine than when a baby falls asleep on your chest?

…especially if that baby is your 8 month old niece

PS. Net is slow so would be adding pic later

UPDATE: Apparently there’s a feeling more divine…having your own kid 😦
*goes to find the father of her child*

My journey on this foggy day


This pic is temporary; till i get off my (beep) and go out and take a pic of the fog)

When I left the house this morning and was greeted by the light morning breeze and the magical foggy weather, I knew that something uplifting will happen today.

On the car drive over to work, I heard a spiritual Hayedeh song I haven’t heard in a long time; and when I came to work I took a trip into Hamad’s World.

His world is beautiful, his world is enlightening, his world is sincere. His world is the message the morning breeze was sending me this morning.

His world is here

Week in review and the week ahead

Week in review

1. Sis b-day and a free yoga video

Yesterday was my sister’s birthday. She’s the kind that makes a list. One of the items on her list was a yoga DVD, so I gave her this link: http://yoga.org.nz/yoga_vidoes_download1.htm

Happy birthday sis 😀

PS. Oh, and in case you are wondering, yes she did make me get off my ass and go out and buy her and actual gift. But wouldn’t it be nice if we could just give people links as gifts 😀

2. Getting signs to start taking pix again

I believe that one has to either do something with a passion or not do it all. So that’s why I haven’t picked up my camera in such along time. So when I got an email from some dude who is writing a book and wanted to use one of my pix; I’m like…hey maybe I could establish a relationship with that little thingy again. But this DSLR thing is too complicated so I went shopping for a good point-and-shoot camera. So far found nothing I like. Waiting for exhibition on feb 4th to buy a camera and a laptop. Oh and thanks hamid for that email a couple of weeks ago also pushing me to start picking up that camy.

3. Thought of trying to develop a passion for cooking

Since a lot of people I meet these days seem to love cooking—even guys—I thought maybe I need to see if I can find the joy of slaving over a hot stove as well. So I thought of checking out you tube videos. Love this one 😀

Week ahead

1. Gonna see my niece

My bro who (I don’t like using whom) I haven’t seen in over 15 years is coming this Tuesday 😀 😀 :D…with his wife aaaaaannnnnddddddddd my niece 😀 😀 😀 This little angel has her own website!!! Damn times have changed, when I was born all I got was a bunch of pictures taken with a regular camera 😦

PS.

Blogger or WordPress

I’m bored stiff, so I’m gonna try something new. Every time I post sth on blogspot, I’ll also copy it here. Let me see which one of these hosts I would grow to love more D.

So far I like blogger more coz:

  1. It allows you to change the html code (on wordpress you can change it but can’t save the new template unless you upgrade)
  2. It allows you to add any widget (including all the widgets on wordpress)

I like the following features on wordpress:

  1. The tag surfer
  2. it comes with recent comment widget (though you can add that on blogger easily)

UPDATE:

  1. I’m having trouble embedding YouTube videos on wordpress.
  2. WordPress had much better templates
  3. WordPress has recently allowed some widgets to be added

This little bear has just come out of hibernating :D

Thank youuuuuuuuuuuu Frieda for your kind concern. All is well, and I am working on making it even better. So what have I been up to? Well, this cozy cold weather had put me into a deep soothing sleep…an awakening sleep.

What have I woken up to? That I want to set sail on a vagabond voyage…ok maybe not in the true sense of the word, but I want to step onto that open-ended road…the road with many forks…the unknown.

“One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.”

…and so she resigns…she quits her well paying job, her great colleagues, the position she focused all her positive energy on getting, and all for what? All for the unknown.

Well not exactly the unknown…my plan is to travel around Iran to as many places as possible. Hopefully the trips would grant me the thing I lost some time back in 2006…my passion.
