Bye for now

Well, I decided to move to the wordpress and combine the bits and pieces of posts into one blog instead of three.

I am still working on categorizing it. But I resumed my sailings (here below)


Bye for now :)

The last and never found piece

The last and never found piece

Puzzle is one of my favorite games, I see some similarity putting the pieces together to form one picture and getting to know someone.

In the sense that some people are easy to comprehend and have a full picture of who they are and others who have like thousand pieces that you might not have neither the time nor the effort to see what they will turn out to be in the end.

The most difficult kinds of that human puzzles are those ones in disguise, yes, they look and act something that they are not. So whenever you grab a piece and put it where it should belong, you surprisingly see that it fits but the picture doesn’t match.., it gets more and more distorted and you get confused with it.

It’s very common to know someone only from the phone or emails, at work for instance when dealing with some other branches in may be other countries.

Or knowing people from their writings; reading their thoughts and ideas in their blogs, still it’s just one side, the other sides will always remain unknown.
Even more the revealed side might be hidden in reality and that’s why the only place for it to get liberated is expressing it in writing.

The common mistakes usually are, forgetting the main objective of collecting the pieces… that is to see the picture, just to know what it’s like not to assess or judge it. We all overlook that fact to the extent that we often try to interfere with the picture and try to change it.
Another thing, there will always be missing pieces, no one knows the whole truth but Allah.

In the end, life is a place where we are supposed to work to earn, plant to eat, and think to understand.

“Message in a bottle”, the original name of my blog, my first post and that intriguing idea of an old sad but full of hope practice I am totally fascinated with.
Today I coincidently found this bog and read that post “Blog Remembered”
Didn’t know the someone else has thrown his thoughts and hoped to be discovered and read.

The interesting thing in that particular blog that the comments are not activated, so I wondered… how would he know if someone has seen his message ? … may be the counter, may be he doesn’t want them to be discovered, or he doesn’t believe they will be discovered…

Walked out this morning
Dont believe what I saw
A hundred billion bottles
Washed up on the shoreSeems
Im not alone in being alone
A hundred billion castaways
Looking for a home

Now these words are making sense, seems there are a lot of messages waiting to be discovered.

Note: I don't know the writer or the owner of that blog, but I am aplologizing if I am

Valentine's day: 10 days away :)

One of the undeniable features of February, it’s nice I can’t argue… to see the store displays elegantly covered with red, it radiates warmth over the grey cold winter.
Tulips , roses… . , surprises, bears and gift boxes.

Despite the fact that this particular day has no significant to me, but it’s an opportunity to see something special.

Last year, I got the weirdest present … I received a phone call from “A” urging to leave me something at the company’s security office, I said sure you can. Couldn’t stop thinking and imagining.
Till he showed up and gave me “Dark City” movie on DVD, unwrapped and in a broken case… ?!!! (It didn’t upset me, in fact I found it funny… but sure we no longer talk :D)

Note to the guys: please wrap the gifts nicely… it’s as much important as the gift itself, get something simple, elegant and symbolic. (don’t spend a lot, think a lot).

Wonderful wishes to you all :D

Success Stories

Seems we Egyptians do lack the know how of making a difference but we are pioneers in complaining.

The dark picture needs to be lightened with some success stories I know they exist, but for some weird reasons are kept unleashed.
We need encouragement, I love my country and the people of my country, just want to show the positivity hidden and boost it.

Here is my tag if anyone is interested, please publish your own experience in conducting or participating in a project here in Egypt or outside it to make us believe that things can get better and prove that the individual efforts can make a difference and become a campaign.

Note: no heroic stories are required, even paying a visit to an orphanage helps.
Need some insights.

I can't hear me

Silence seems to be a luxury that I can’t afford to have even some of.
I need ear plugs, I have a lot to say but the voices are so loud. Even the ones who care for me don't want to leave me alone just for an hour or two. I need some space.
I normally am a good listener but as long as no one bothers to listen, give me a chance to listen to myself.
I can't count the times that I heard the question "Are you OK" "What is wrong with you" followed by my answer "I am fine" and then get that look as if I am hidding something, well I am not, or may be I am... how can I tell.

Tag: Five things you don't know about me:

Thanks dear Blue for the Tag, it was real fun thinking about it :)

Here we go:

1- I am a day dreamer and imaginative, I used to tell my mom bed time stories when I was young.
2- I wash my hands really a lot.
3- I like cooking and like to sing in the kitchen.
4- In important events or occasions, I am always late, never have enough time to prepare myself as I want and often forget important things.
5- I never stroll down the beach bare feet like what all people do, I wear sneakers to make sure my feet are protected.

That's what I have never mentioned, the silly stuff I hide :D

I am tagging my sister Nerro and friends in my side bar if they would like to.
