Philosophy!

Great Emperor Alexander at the time of his death said, "my last wish is that both my hands be kept dangling out of my coffin - I wish people to know that I came empty handed into this world and empty handed I go out of this world."

CUT GRASS!

I LOVE the smell of freshly cut grass. Everytime i pass next to a fresh trimmed or cut grass i have the urge to go down and roll on the glass till no end. But then i realize that it is just a small area that wouldn't even fit a cat or a dog (usually the sidewalks of streets). The smell reminds me of our old family house in Lebanon. It is located in the mountains and encircled with greenary and breath taking nature scenes. There is always a cold breeze to tease your body parts every now and then which would give the bearer goosebumps from the chill. Those breezes are usually scented with the Grass's smell especially after a short Rain session.

I think i am HIGH from the smell this morning hehehehehehe i feel good ;) Bless you all with happiness ;)

Music Shop...

Lately as most of you know, I've been on a tight schedule with all the things happening in my business and personal life. As most of my life is running now with different appointments planned ahead before the start of the day, I had an appointment at 10 this morning, which ended in an hour. After finishing at 11 i found myself walking back home and looking at the shops under my parents' house as if i haven't seen them for years although i am there every weekend. Most of the salesmen were new and i didn't recognise most of them. Anyway, i found myself going into the Music Shop to get BM the new Nancy Ajram cassette for i feel her song "See Sayed" is so typical to him and our situation.

I go into the store to find a salesman with a familiar face, so i felt a bit relieved and that youppiiii i still know some of these people. I have bought a couple of cassettes and CDs from him before but never spoke to him or chatted or anything. So i walk into the shop and he comes down the stairs and i say "Stay up there why did you come down i will pick the Nancy cassette and leave don't worry i won't take anything else". He freezes in his place and says "This looks like a beautiful morning if we're starting with you as a first customer" and he heads back up the stairs and literally leaves me alone. i felt shy for what isaid but i giggled quitly then took the Nancy cassette, placed the money on the counter and headed to the door just to hear him saying "Can i come down now PLEASEEEEEEE" so i started laughing while looking at him coming down the stairs with his hands up in the air as if under attack by me and he says a line from Ziad Rahbani's play "Bi Amirkoun Ya Khayee" (your wish is my command) then he said "Wlak lawein?" (Where to?) and to that i said another line for Ziad but from another play "Isteiz, Balki 3am bitwakki3na" (Sir, What if you were just kidding?). At the sound of that he really gets shocked that i am a Ziad's fan for it seems that only Men and Guys should be interested and not girls. From there we started chatting about Ziad, then his mom Feirouz, then back to Ziad, which lead us to Carl Marx, then Lebanon's State and the weird religions, sects, racism, then to life then to personal experiences and believe it or not I left his shop at 1pm. Yes i stayed for 2hrs in that Music shop just standing there chatting with this guy whom i have never spoken to before. It felt so good to talk to someone anonymous for i miss that since 6 years ago. I used to talk to people i donno at all times either through a comment or by helping them to carry or move something, or over the net etc. But since i moved to AbuDhabi i became so lonely and i started hating socializing with others for my time is so packed.

I swear to God that the first thing that hit my mind when i went out of that Music Shop door was "Huh this wasn’t at all scheduled on any of my plans for today!!! And i just loved it. "

I used to be an extra sociable person, for everyone who new me used to say innou i take it from my dad that "Bihky ma3 il tayr il tayer" (I talk to flying birds). But since i started working and started feeling the worth of time and taking all the new responsibilities i seem to have hidden my extra sociable persona and only exposed the welcoming persona. Ya3ni i would be happy to be around the people i know but would feel really lazy to get to know new people.

That incident today made me think for hours in the afternoon, and i really noticed that i will be turning 28 in 6 months from now and i haven't got the chance to add more and more people into my life before this year goes from my life. I am a believer that life should be full of people you know and friends everywhere on earth. During my visit to Egypt i got to meet lots of new people to whom i really consider as friends now not just someone i met on vacation. And to me that's what counts. But if i compare myself to the time where everyday i used to add loads of names to the list of people i got to meet during the day i will find myself ages and ages behind at work! So my new mission added to the list of other missions which have to be done before i turn 28 is "meet MORE new people ;)".
