It is almost 1 AM… just finished watching “Mona Lisa Smile” movie staring Julia Roberts; absolutely one of my favorite actresses. Her performance is exceptional as always. It was my first time to watch this inspiring movie that presents the 50s’ showing how women, men, education, dogmas and progressive thinking were viewed. The most important theme of the movie is “change”… those who help up us change, our willingness to consider new routes and methods, our ability to question our traditions. The movie is a very good food for thought.
Now I am listening to Fayrouz singing “سكن الليل”… first time again! There is a LOT of Fayrouz that I am yet to explore…
لا تخافي يا فتاتي … فالنجوم تكتم الأخبار
I guess now I know why I am so much in love with stars :)
I look at the picture I painted (with all due apology to all painters!) representing myself in winter. Shades of grey for the clouds… I do not like straight colors, but rather shades of one colour where they melt into one colorful maze. Then the girl in the picture is with short legs (I’m of medium height). Maybe they represent the short steps I take… but towards what exactly?! Then comes the long raised arms welcoming the rains… they are wide enough to embrace anything… yet they are straight arms. Can they keep what they embrace?! Can they curve and hold?! Who knows…
