Love is blind
Scared and brave
with long white cane she steps
into winter's blinding morning.
she will do great things. . .
We are playthings in the hands of time, dancing to music that is not our own. -- Khalilullah Khalili
Scared and brave
I fashioned from myself
We used to be 1 -
A lemon shriveled in the sun,
On the plane last week,
There's a kid who had a big hallucination
And if I show you my dark side,
Will you still hold me tonight?
And if I open my heart to you,
and show you my weak side
What would you do?
This time last year, on the eve of the 9th of Av...
Often what one regrets the most
In the shaking flame
How can a little girl -
It is a famous cliche
This story from last year deserves a bump....
Zidane says mysterious voice guided his comeback decision
PARIS, Aug 8 (Reuters) - Zinedine Zidane says a mysterious voice inspired his decision to play for France again.
"One night, at three in the morning, I woke up suddenly and then, I talked to someone," Zidane tells French magazine France Football in an interview to be released on Tuesday.
"That person really exists but it all comes from very far. And then, during the hours that followed, I took the decision to come back".
The three-times World Player of the Year, who won the World Cup in 1998 and the European championship two years later, had announced his retirement from international football after Euro 2004.
The 33-year-old's comeback decision came as surprise after he had said several times over the past few months that he would not change his mind.
"I was dumbfounded before that force that was guiding my behaviour and I had something of a revelation," Zidane told France Football.
It is painful to throw away old things, so instead I spent hours reorganizing old photographs, remembering the times they were taken, and wondering if anyone else's ever going to look at them, and how I wish I had not lost touch with so many in them.
Religious old men spend their terrifyingly long days learning,
As Bokonon has it (you can tell I liked the book!):
In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in His cosmic loneliness.
...because it is the only day i can focus my mind on
Relationships, jobs, diverging roads.
I wanted all things
A group of about 5 women from work are walking the hallways and singing Merry Christmas carrols this morning. They're not especially good, and the whole thing is a bit amusing.
Photos from my trip to Istanbul and Israel below!
I must say I have seen few things more beautiful, more impressive, more glorious than the mosques of Istanbul.
"Mister, would you like some hairspray? Or, perhaps, I can interest you in a handgun?"
Finally, below are photos from my amazing trip to Israel over Sukkot.
Can all of today's Israel be summed up in one photo? No, but I LOVED the many ironies of this little piece of the old Jewish Quarter:
