I know it is a small consolation, after all each one is alone with within the solitary boundaries of his/her skin...but just so to let you know: I have walked the first quarter of age with the same impression, under the same "curse"...

...or maybe it was/is a blessing, for it led me away from life but close to Iraq's heart...

You are proof that I.Q. tests are bogus. Doing well in them just depends on what you've been exposed to.

You're brilliant, and don't let anyone tell you different. I am a writer who has a manuscript at a publishing house, and you leave me in the dust.

KARLMARX--I'll join you and God, if you don't mind. Two is company, three is a crowd.
As for IQ tests, that's garbage. Einstein was told he would never succeed. Essentially, he was stupid. If he hadn't wound up in a "sort of" exile, most of us speculate he would never have produced the extraordinary work he did.

E,

Thank you for a beautiful comment.

Morgan,

Thank you and you make me blush.
Excuse my ignorance but is Morgan a name for a woman, man or both ? I've always wondered about that...

KMWR,

You can join us on condition that you partake in the hubbly bubbly smoke...
Am in exile, and I have not defied the law of gravity yet. lol.

KMWR--Well, considering the opportunity to sit down with both you and God, together, how could I possibly refuse the terms of such illustrious companionship. I'll smoke the hubbly bubbly,or, anything else...altho I just might choke on whatever it is and wind up meeting God, if not you, later, somewhere else.
I should let Morgan speak for himself/herself. Generally, Morgan is a man's name. BUT, ocassionally, it functions as a woman's name as well.
I could think of lots of jokes around this name peculiarity, but, I'll leave that for Morgan, himself?

Morgan is a unisex name. Irish, and it means 'born by the sea'. My driver's license says I'm a chick, but I consider myself a nose. I mean, the thing does seem to take up about 90 odd percent of my body weight; and I live in the Bay Area where I don't need no steenkeeng gender.

(Once I was in a software class northeast of Sacramento, and I insisted the teacher refer to me as 'it', and he commented that I must be from the Bay Area. That stuck.)

When I saw the title I rushed to the text. Such a comfort to read that one is not alone.

Layla said, " When I smell the scent of Jasmin, or Rose....."

I have read where the sense of smell is the strongest in regards to transgression or recalling the past.

I have to agree. I can be anywhere at anytime and a scent I may catch and instantly my mind/thoughts are back to then.

Scents can also trigger past traumas or certain events. Children that have been abused or molested can have a fear of certain smells because of this and they are engrained in the memories probably for a lifetime.

Birth & Death seem as if they are Worlds where one is picked up by a taxi.

We dont know who the driver is, where we are headed each day, how long we will be along for the ride and what sights & experiences we will witness or try to reach.

Sometimes we have the choice to just get out. Others go down a long bumpy road. Others wonder why this particular taxi happened to be theirs.

there's smart in a left brain way, in a right brain way, and both. your post reminds me of a quote i read this morning by the genius iraqi architect Zaha Hadid

"Because I am a non-European I have a different system of thinking, my order is different. Deconstructionism and the structuralist theories are based on theories which were so-called rationalist, one way of doing things. I don't belong to that tradition. I belong to a tradition which already has a different order. They are called more emotional, intuitive, but intuitive is not instinctive. Intuitive is the marriage of rationalism and experience."

Truth does not need to prove itself. It just is.

and here lies the difference between people who instinctively know how to experience life vs those who remain 'unmarried' thru a life of rationalism.

smell on.

KM,

Very nice comment!

Nur, the turkish freak,

Kiss my ass and my kundara, ya Adabziz, arziz, namoosziz.

Annie,

I don't like Zaha Hadid at all. Her futuristic, too modern archicterural designs are an insult to me. Besides she made good money designing the new embassy of the new liberated Iraq in DC.

Intuition is not a product of rationalism and experience. Intuition is FITRA. Zaha Hadid forgot the meaning of it.

anonymous,

Welcome to across borders "out of place " club.

Morgan, the "chick",

So Morgan is the name for a woman. OK got it now. It made me laugh...Your nose that is...but come to think of it - I will tell you what Annie said - "Smell on".

Your comments, your rage, your curses have been eye-opening. I feel I have been in a small bar on a side street with the rich, deep afternoon sun illuminating a most engaging and precious friend who at the moment is center of the universe and a source of true knowledge and insight – I am only so sorry for the oceans of suffering that have engulfed the Iraqi people – if they are like you and I truly believe they are – they will prevail. Get some rest, take care of yourself…..

Later,
