I had a dream

Well it seems to me that you are longing to relive your youth. And there is nothing wrong in that, it seems that at every stage in life we long for the one preceeding it, a chance to relive things and make improvements, take up more opportunities, have more fun etc but I think this is where the test lies- we only get one chance so we should make the best of it and relish the memories that we have.

Okay now that was some serious reading into stuff so perhaps I should shut up now

of course you could be 100% right.
But to tell you the truth, at the end of a long day at work and after long months of indoor winter hibernation I do feel like:
1. drinking a beer
2. riding my bike
3. Lazing on a beach (i wouldn't mind the beautiful babes at all)

not feeling up to writing, I snatched these 3 clips from youtube and combined them into a condensed version of a daydream.
i could be guilty of ulterior motives, for instance, i could be lamenting my slipping (or slipped) youth... or i could be simply bored.
whatever the case might be, thank you for dropping by

Shhhh dj
You promised not to tell.
AbuFares jan, you need to go to the market and whip up something evil, with lots of chilli.
Nothing like a day in the market, and a good meal, cooked by yourself, to make you come alive.

what a dream ya Abufares, the last part is the best,
by the the way I thought hunting would be part of your dream,,,

There's something sinister about Yalli Ma Y7eb El-Neswan.

Naaa, I'll write about my heaven some day. This was merely a daydream.

No problem at all... as long as you stay dry :-)

If dreams fall under 2 categories, the Mel Gibson's and the Woody Allen's, mine fall under the first one, thank god. Too much testosterone doesn't bother me much. It's the progesterone I have to watch out for.

You must be a fortune teller. I woke up early this morning and went to the open food market with Om Fares and bought a whole bunch of herbs, vegetables and "Hot Chillies".

I kid you not. When I was putting this clip together I searched for a video on hunting but couldn't find any good one. But it's a part of my dream for sure.

"I am worn out with dreams;
a weather-worn, marble triton
among the streams;
and all day long I look
upon this lady's beauty
as though I had found in a book
apictured beauty,
pleased to have filled the eyes
or the discerning ears,
delighted to be but wise,
for men improve with the years;
And yet, and yet,
Is this my dream, or the truth?
O would that we had met
when I had my burning youth!
But I grow old among dreams,
a weather-worn, marble triton
among streams."

I hear ya dear friend ... you're working too hard and need TIME OUT!!
FINALLY - I'll start with my book SOON .. have given it a lot of thoughts lately! It will be wider-ranging than initially planned ...
It's all thanks to YOU - after all, it was YOU gave me the (initial but necessary) "kicks in my hind end"!!

MISSING YOU ALL ... and (belated) MABROUK to Fares!! :-)

What can I say, a sublime poem stirs me in the same way a beautiful woman does, or is it the other way around?
Abufares said…
I miss you my friend. It's about time you start writing YOUR book. Remember that I want a signed copy of the first edition:-)
Fares thanks you for your wishes. They weren't belated at all. I was out of town and returned one day too late to celebrate his birthday on time.

either way... you have a lot of soul & sensitivity, which in my view is what makes you special.
