The Sound of Music

Dear ...

It was Friday, six something PM, I was sitting in the balcony watching the sun set, the weather was so beautiful was quieter than everyday.
I stayed for more than thirty minutes staring at the sky I couldn't help noticing that the colors of the clouds are also changing while the sun is sinking behind the buildings ... yes "buildings" I wished it was a sea or trees but still it was a nice view.
the closer clouds to the sun were almost transparent and the far ones were blue going into darker blue.
the sun then began t disappear leaving red shades in the sky... red traces and tones till it has totally gone.
I found myself humming one slow song and one idea just jumped into my mind... where does the sound of music come from, I thought I heard something it's like an inspiration and the last thing you know you are humming this particular piece.
They do this in the movies and we say oh... movies they are not real.
Still want to know... so what about this, how do we feel when we first listen to a beautiful piece of music, especially when we listen to someone playing Piano (it's my favorite) it just touches the heart may be it remains there may be it enters the heart and wait till we need it and then it comes , overwhelms us and then we found ourselves humming, It's not very scientific but it's how I think.
The sky then turned into blue, the red shades have gone so are the clouds they blended in the sky, the music faded till it has also gone.

    Hey Unknown,
    So I visited your blog, and by now I discovered what you meant .. pretty funny.
    but seriously, I don't think that no one still uses this word "love" that frequently these days.

    Thanks anyway.

    I believe that the songs and sights (colors) that we experience in our lives weave themselves into our memories and become a part of who we are. The best of them come back and we can relive their joy. I LOVE the pictures that you've added. You are an artist and there is beauty in these images. I posted a few pictures on my blog, but will open a briefcase of more on Yahoo. The trip I made to New Hampshire was wonderful. I look forward to your next post.

    Best! Norm.

    Dear Norm,
    I have been waiting for your comments, and yes the SPAM comments are really annoying.
    Glad you liked the pictures, I like photography and I thought why don't I combine them with my writings.
    I have read your past posts and they are realy expressive as always.
    All the best,

    Dear, I have come back to computer after a long time. I am going back for a while to Pakistan to marry out my youngest daughter and thinking to drop for one day in your town. Will some one from your family pick and drop me back to the airport after I spend some hours with your family.

    Dear Mr. Zab,
    I am sorry for the late reply, you know we are in the month of Ramadan and I have been too busy at work.
    and even after I get back we are either invited or inviting relatives to Iftar (family commitments) and then prayers.
    So I am applogizing for not being able to welcome you in Egypt.
    Congrats for your daughter.
    All the best,
