Out of the Blue...

5:00 p.m. ; sipping a cup of tea with my grandmother as she unravels the tales of her past, I -however- am oblivious of her story and lost in the laughter lines at the corners of her eyes and the dimples that flash suddenly as she speaks.. I wonder how this same face looked like a couple of decades ago.. I wish I could press rewind...

3:00 a.m. ; my cousin and I are standing in the balcony drinking in the uncommon quietness of the atmosphere, each of us lost in her own thoughts.. the plam trees sway magically whispering amoung themselves.. a stray cat searches for his lover..

A NICE TOUCH OF POETRY TO START MY SUNDAY, SOMETHING COOL AT THE BEGINNING OF WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE ANOTHER SCORCHER. I HOPE THE CAT WAS SUCCESSFUL! MAY THE WIND ALWAYS CARESS YOU TENDERLY ...

I liked to sit in the balcony , I did it when we go out side Iraq ,because her our weather and our situation are not suitable for this sitting .

Monalis,

How are you?

I hope the reason you're not posting is that you're enjoying your holiday.

You mentioned "the plam trees sway magically whispering amoung themselves" and then "a stray cat searches for his lover", this shoud be very romantic only if the male cat is not cheating on her with the neighbour cat.

Take care,
