Hi everyone!
I'm back!

the trip was so {exiting} and {inspiring} !
the city was so lovely. and the sky was just wonderful!
we visited almost all worth seeing places there and frankly ... I'm so proud of it!
the history, the art, the love, the reflection and the beauty of that period of time can just amaze you!
you find yourself just a little corpuscle... a little bit of all this beauty!
believe me; it's just bewitching!
oh I've taken lots and lots of photos that I think it's impossible to upload all of them here!
but I'll find the perfect way! promise!

and some points I found out in this trip:
1.having a fine digital camera is v.i.t.a.l ! (and unfortunately I did not)
2.I need to learn how to sleep in same room with somebody snoring!
3.I am growing up ...
4.I desire a 2-person trip with Farshad to Esfahan!
5.I really enjoy seeing this huge number of tourists in Iran.
6.I'm always so cheerful when I'm back home!

can you find me in the image below?! :D

So called little surprise! :D

Hey guys, I'm Farshad. I think you may know me through my love's blog and it's a good thing, not just because you know me! it's because Shokoofeh is such a warmhearted person that all of you guys take your time and see her blog and enjoy her cheerfulness which makes me proud. I'm not very used to this kind of things, I mean writing. I always read what others write if you ask but what I'm doing now is a little surprise for Shokoofeh while she's gone. She likes surprises and I love surprising her and I love her. And of course showing my appreciations for sharing your feelings about her posts with her. Hope you guys have a good time.

after a great walk with a great mom in a dreamy rainy weather ...

what do you think is the best choice?!

maybe; when you've spent a life, almost a whole life with faith,
when you've lived your life with pure love and happiness,
when you find yourself {twenty four years and a month},
when you're feeling absolutely nothing but the prosperity...on a rainy night,
maybe; you would hear yourself cry and would just say:
"I hate when people die" ...

maybe it's called {fidelity}!
...maybe it's not.

feeling ... { l a t e }

There are times in life that you feel {late}!

Farshad has gone back to North for the school and I am again all by myself!
so; I just wanted to start my week fresh and focused ... but I couldn't! my mind is full of messed up things! I'm thinking about 2 big project at the same time... and this made everything seems so impossible!
this is unbelievable; but I found "thinking about myself" so hard!
::this is what I should do for the first project called {self-postrait}::
everything seemed so easy at the beginning but when I start thinking about {me} I feel DISABLED! it looks funny, I know! but it's absolutley ture!
we are thinking about us every moment! every single moment of our lives...! but when it comes to write a list: there is another story... {sigh}

I'm going to try my best!

I love these hands ...

first of all !
thank you to everyone for your wonderful comments!
reading your comments made me feel so blessed!
and feel like I have a lot of friends all over the world!

thanks dear Tina for making this!

so... here we go

Do you spend time with your mother?
while she's cooking or working in the kitchen or when she's doing the home-mother stuffs?!
I do.
and for me; this is one of the most joyful moments of the day. I sit there and start looking at her. at her hands. her face. her eyes.
sometimes she talks to me and I don't hear!
in those moments I'm nothing but a watcher!
because ...
She's complete. she's calm. she's perfect. she's adept. she's divine.
she's beautiful!

{I love these hands so much ...}

the poet within the Iranian fashion designer ...

Afshin Feiz was born in Iran, lives in Paris, travels all over the world, and shows his collections in New York. Add to the multiculturalism of his outlook, apprenticeships with leading fashion designers like John Galliano and a great passion for music and poetry, and you have the makings of a wonderful fashion designer. Inspired by the poetry of the Sufi poet Rumi, Feiz used delicate and tender designs in pastel colors and luxurious silks for his summer collection, reminiscent of the longing for the beloved in Rumi's verses. His Fall 2005 collection, entitled ‘Butterfly Catcher’ was filled with symbols of butterflies and candles, which in Rumi's poetry represent love and longing; the ever elusive and fatal love between the moth and the flame symbolizes the same relationship between ecstasy and pain.

In your light I learn how to love
In your beauty, how to make poems
You dance inside my chest
where no-one sees you
but sometimes I do
and that sight becomes this art

{read 2 interesting interviews with Afshin Feiz here & here}
{and you can get more information about
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muḥammad Rumi, the brilliant Persian mystic here}

because yesterday was beautiful ...

{ and breakfast is always our favorite }

Yesterday; we enjoyed a great walk after a lovely breakfast.
and the weather was wonderful !
the beautiful flowers, a very blue and cloudy sky,the adorable blossom trees, park benches and a car cemetery presented us plenty of photo opportunities:

and believe me; we are actually not frowny!
but the sunny-cloudy sky made us look like this!

oh and I decided I wouldn't mind having a Flickr profile!
what do you say?!
