Ask an Iraqi
2008-05-28 13:28:00
I came across this clip by accident. It is a segment from Ira Glass’s “this american life”. I did not know of this show, but it has begun running recently on Showtime i believe, and was originally an award-winnign radio show in the US on public radio. This particular segment, which i found beautiful and ...

On John Ogdon, Pianist extraordinaire
2008-05-20 23:41:00
It’s amazing, my bond with Rachmaninoff grows ever deeper. He has truly become the voice of the divine for me. Such a beautiful soul. It was thus that i came across some recordings of the Rachmaninoff Preludes and Etudes-Tableaux, by the mysterious and engimatic English pianist, John Ogden. Now i’d heard of him ...

The Cretan Glance
2008-05-10 02:00:00

Crystallising
2008-05-10 01:55:00
It is such an odd sensation.  I feel like I’m at a point, in thoughts and ideas, where i might be on the edge of a precipice. There have been many thoughts that have been swirling in my head for a some time now, mostly for the past six months.  Ideas that were vague and unclear, ...

Evolution
2008-05-08 13:15:00
It’s funny, across time, and my experiences in it, I become more and more convinced that a Man’s Personality, who he is, how he defines himself, and sees himself in the world, evolves through a series of Beatrice’s.

Unexpecting the expected
2008-05-01 16:26:00
I did something today, that i’d never done before.  As usual, after eating, i put my plate aside.  Then i turned and looked at it, and thought for a moment, and decided against all instinct, to follow Mim’s advice, and i picked up the plate, walked slowly - against my body’s natural tendencies - over to ...

Discussion: Richard Dawkins & Lawrence Krauss
2008-04-24 15:05:00
This is a very interesting discussion between two rather well-known and well-mediatized scientist: famous anti-god and anti-religion flagbearer Richard Dawkins and physicist Lawrence Krauss one of the many pretenders to the throne of former physics/astrophysics for the layperson champion Carl Sagan. It is a very interesting discussion, about the agelong conflict between science ...

What did i tell you? I told you i’d be back very soon, and i’ve obliged. Personally i’m quite impressed by myself, but as some might wish to point out, this is not the first time i’ve stopped blogging and then said i’ll be back soon, and then didn’t oblige. So, first let’s attend to the ...

Like i always say, it depends on the Frame of Reference
2008-02-03 21:22:00
Think about this: Whenever, then, anything in nature seems to us ridiculous, absurd or evil, it is because we have but a partial knowledge of things, and are in the main ignorant of the order and coherence of nature as a whole, and because we want everything to be arranged according to the dictates of ...

“I had to do a double take when i - quite accidentally - caught a glimpse of you this evening.  But the instant my eyes fell on your lovely curly locks and that profile, i recognized you. I hadn’t seen you for nearly 9 months.  Did you know you were one of the reasons i used ...

Francis Bacon?s Triptych
2007-12-12 18:54:00
I’m standing, finally, before the Triptych . It is perhaps odd that such a hideous and anxious set of imagery should be an identifying feature and hallmark, for potentially my greatest joy. When I first saw the image, several weeks ago, on my computer screen, it was new, and it startled me. It ...

Musical Philosophical Nightmare

It was a couple of weeks ago, when sleeping in the throws of a mild fever, i had one of those fantastic fever-induced surreal dream/nightmares.  Now before i continue, if for no reason other than to set my mother aflight with worry, i should add that it was mild, and nothign serious, in fact i ...

At the Gates of the Underworld
2007-12-05 21:11:00
Little red dragonflies are flying back and forth harmlessly all around me, engaged in seriously in their own business. The water undulates serenely. The white goose stands on the ledge at the edge of the water. Calmly, he looks around, takes a couple of paces back and forth and then returns to the ...

Shahriar: Coming out of the closet
2007-12-03 19:23:00
Alright, before you start to read TOO MUCH into this, i’m using “coming out closet as a metaphor”, I’m not saying i’m actually gay, not that there’s anythign wrong with that. It’s just an expression people, get over it. However, this isn’t exactly a joking situation either. So i might as well get straight down to ...
