Writers' corner

The above picture is from writers'corner
in Hampstead Heath, London.
A very relaxing and aspiring
place both for the talented writers
and would-be writers;
they can obtain big ideas
by simply observing the giant
writer's desk ! and enjoying the beautiful
and picturesque surroundings.
Also during rare summer sunshine,
visitors can enjoy the refreshing
shade as seen in the above picture.
This is one of my favourite places!

Such a feeling!

Such a feeling!
This morning I was jogging
when I reached the Rose Garden
in the park in London,
something there:
the fresh breeze,
the amazing scent of flowers,
the beauty of smiling roses,
the fascinating atmosphere,
each and all deeply affect me
that I felt the best feeling,
my soul was drunk for seconds!

I shall not live in vain

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain:
If I can ease one life the aching,
or cool one pain,
or help one fainting robin
unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
Emily Dickinson

sometimes it is like that!

A cartoon is like a photo, an international means of
communication; it is understood by people from
different nations and different languages; there
is no need for translation...above image is one
of them and I think I should just write that
sometimes it is like that!

A story of love

The above pictures show the famous philosopher,
Andre Gorz and his wife after wedding and
after 58 years that they lived together.
Andre Gorz starts the most fascinating
and moving 75-page love letter to his
dying wife who suffered a fatal disease
with the following words:
"You are 82 years old.
You've shrunk six centimetres,
you only weigh 45 kilos yet
you're still
beautiful,graceful and desirable.
It is now 58 years that we have
lived together and I love you
more than ever."
How fascinating is such a warm
bond between a man and a woman;
it is true love and how beautiful and
sincere Andre wrote to his wife that
turned his love letter to the bestseller.
Andre Gorz was an honest writer and
philosopher both in words and actions.

Our experience never gets into our
blood and bones.
It always remains outside of us.
That's why we look with wonder
at the past.

TV and one-way communication

I do not think there is any need to write anything
about the above image; it is very clear,
especially for those who have read
or have heard about "Le petit prince"
by Saint-Exupery. The interesting point
is anyone can have his or her own
interpretation of it and I believe that
it shows the beauty of it.

children of different races

How beautiful is to oberve the symbols of innocence,
children from different nations, different skin colours,
different races, different social backgrounds,...
gathering together in peace and harmony;
the act that the grown up people are
incapable of doing. There is an interesting
description of peaceful nature of children
in a story written by a writer from Quebec;
one character in the story
describs his dream:
"un grand train errait dans le ciel avec tous
les enfants du monde penches aux fenetres,
qui jetaient des fleurs sur la terre."

We would have much better society
if grown ups could learn from kids!

eyes half shut

It is extraordinary how we go through life with
eyes half shut, with dull ears,
with dormant thoughts.
Perhaps it's just as well;
and may be that it is this very dullness that makes
life to the incalculable majority
so supportable and so welcome.
Joseph Conrad

Who knows? Who knows? Life is so peculiar, so uncertain.
How little a thing it takes to destroy you
or to save you!

love and age

Those who love deeply never grow old;
they may die of old age,
but they die young.
A beautiful saying by a philosopher.

Fascinating creatures: Dolphins

Dolphins are really fascinating; they are so intelligent, cute, peaceful and beautiful creatures that makes any person who has some traces of humanity and warmth, smile. Watching dolphins laughing, dancing and jumping in the blue sea is amazing. Recently a film "The Cove" has made by Louie Psihoyos that shows the annual slaughter of more than 2500 dolphins in Japan!!!!! I cannot imagine how could those persons eat dolphins'meat! it is equal to cannibalism, because they are very close to human beings; dolphins are among the most intelligent animals; dolphins also display culture, something long believed to be unique to humans; in May 2005 a discovery in Australia found bottlenose dolphins teaching their young how to use tools...nothing can justify the slaughter of this fascinating creature by those who are apparently called humans!

The sea and the river

In the darkness when there is no moon, the river knows no limits...the way Maupassant has compared the sea and the river is interesting: mer est souvent dure et mechante, c'est vrai, mais elle crie, elle hurle, elle est royale, la grande mer; tandis que la riviere est silencieuse et perfide...

It is ok to be who I am!

If we can believe that it is OK to be who we are, we will have much better society. When we know ourselves and understand that we are the products of our genes and environment.Also we have the ability to change for better. The first step is to know ourselves and be honest to ourselves and avoid pretension at any cost.
Honesty makes us happy: one has to be honest with himself first and then be honest with other people. Honesty makes us harmonious too; sometimes we observe some people that say something, but the words are not in harmony with the look in the eyes or the body language and you can immediately recognize that that person is not telling the truth.
Dishonesty ruins the self first and then it is spread to the society and damage the society. So the best thing to tell ourselves is "It is OK to be who I am and I do try to be better."

The person who is behind the scene
but with the real power
the person who is in the front
and has no power!

self knowledge

Maybe I do not know what I want, but surely I do know what I do not want.

Sometimes a picture, a painting, a cartoon, a design and ...tell us much more than a 311-page book; the above fantastic and unique painting by Dali is one of them; you can write and rewrite numerous pages about this masterpiece and each time discover a new and exciting secret about it...
