I've Learned ..........

I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it may be better tomorrow.



I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles a rainy day and lost luggage.



I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.



I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."



I've learned that life sometimes… Continue

if you find love

If you find yourself in love with someone who does not

love you, be gentle with yourself. There is nothing

wrong with you. Love just didn't choose to rest in the

other person's heart.



If you find someone else in love with you and you don't

love her/him, feel honoured that love came and called at

your door, but gently refuse the gift you cannot

return. Do not take advantage, do not cause pain.



How you deal with love is how you deal with you,… Continue

The power of love

The power of love : Céline Dion



The whispers in the morning

Of lovers sleeping tight

Are rolling like thunder now

As i look in your eyes



I hold on to your body

And feel each move you make

Your voice is warm and tender

A love that i could not forsake



(first chorus)

'cause i am your lady

And you are my man

Whenever you reach for me

I'll do all that i can



Lost is how i'm feeling lying in your… Continue

Haji-firuz Brings the First Taste of Spring



One of my favorite characters is humorous Haji-firuz. Weeks before the end of the year and even shortly after the announcement of the Persian New Year, he comes telling all that spring is in the air.



He wears fiery red satin costume, dark-make up and plays his tambourine and trumpets. He wanders all streets and people give him a gift or money for bringing such a good news.



He dances like a snake, up and down with wavy… Continue
