Throwback: Trip of A Lifetime

I found this old article on my Outlook saved documents. It brings so much happy memory flooding back! It was published on Y Magazine - Y Campus page. Long live SQU! Lol ;p

(Click for larger view, I guess!)

Update: I just realized that the first ever blog posts in here were written during the trip the above article is talking about :)

عروس البحيرة

من منكم يتذكر هذه التمثيلية؟ كانت تعرض في القناة السورية. لم أكن أفهمها، فلذلك كانت متابعتها بعد سنوات طويلة بعقلية مختلفة تماما أمر ممتع :)

في الدقيقة ١٩:٤٨
حوار لطيف وعميق بين الطفلة والساحرة تقنع فيه الساحرة الطفلة الصغيرة بقوة الشعر مقابل السحر

- ساحرة؟ كيف؟ انت تملكين السحر؟
- وانت تملكين الاقوى..
- اقوى من السحر؟
- طبعا تملكين الشعر
- ها؟!
- أشرح لكِ اخبريني ما السحر؟
- همم.. السحر...بيت من حلوى..نأكل منه أو نعلب
- الشعر احلى...أطيب
- أطيب من حلوى؟ أزعل منكِ!
- أنا لا أمزح...
- إذن، ما الشعر؟
- الشعر حبلٌ من نجوم..وأغانٍ للفرح.. الشعر يا حلوة قوس قزح..وغيومُ ومطر..وطيور وزهورُ..و دروب للقمر!

On philosophy..

(Socrates posing for the sculptor before posing was cool)

I'm not really sure if what I'm about to say (or type!) is by any chance new to you all; but I guess what philosophy is really all about sharing the very essence of things or situations without dwelling in the details of the event that initially formed the thought. I think what Socrates & co. really did was merely getting in touch with their inner-selves quite often. They gave the world their finest of thought and realizations. I love to believe that they didn't need to bore people with the details of how they came up with that philosophical thought. People loved the sound of what they said and so they came up with a fancy title to honor the people behind the thought and called them "philosophers".

So anyways, here's my philosophical thought of the day:

When you are a seeker, you eventually realize that all your searching leads you to the same place. That the answers you need are, quite frankly, within. On another note, I believe that our souls are on a journey, and that our bodies are just vessels.

Now philosophy isn't that difficult, huh? :)
I can almost hear someone suggesting I read this.

اهلا بالقادم

فكرة جديدة أخرى

تعلمت الامتنان وجذب كل ما هو جميل إلى حياتي
قررت أن املأ هذه المدونة بكلمات وصور وقصص وملاحظات وخواطر جميلة
سأقرأ الكثير من الكتب الجميلة
سأجمع الكثير من الذكريات والصور
سأتعلم أكثر 
سأهتم بنفسي جدا جدا وأحبها فأنا جديرة بالحب والاهتمام 
ولا جدوى من البحث عن هذه الأشياء في العالم الخارجي
سأحبهم أكثر وأقدرهم أكثر بلا شروط
سأتأمل أكثر...سأصلي أكثر
سأحافظ على اتزاني وسلامي الداخلي
الصندوق الفارغ بجانب سريري سيمتلأ بأشياء جميلة وسعيدة جدا

في الأيام القادمة سأشرق من جديد :)


من المخطط أن ابقى هنا الى شهر اغسطس القادم 
ولكن قد تطول المد

It's fate working its magic..

 "Look at us. Running around, always rushed, always late. I guess that's why they call it the human race. What we crave most in this world is connection. For some people it happens at first site. It's when you know, you know. It's fate working its magic. And that's great for them. They get to live in a pop song; ride the express train. But that's not the way it really works. For the rest of us it's a bit less romantic. It's complicated and it's messy. It's about horrible timing and fumbled opportunities. And not being able to say what you need to say when you need to say it. At least, that's the way it was for me."

I loved these lines from the movie "Switched"!
