On Sweetness...

Possibly the most apolitical post...
Well, I am not so sure, myself.
In any event, enjoy the sound of Sweetness and let it polish, refine, smooth out your senses... And, only if you wish.

I just bought that movie myself a few weeks ago. I can easily empathize with all the characters in some way or another, I really enjoy that movie. Beirut looks charming, it actually reminds me of Athens a bit, although I haven't been there in years. Perhaps the fact that you walk to the beat of your own drum Ms. Layla, is what makes you so incredibly interesting.

Thanks Layla for a spoon full of sweetness.
The floor is all yours please tango.

Sweetness purifies our heart.
Brilliance strengthens our mind.
When sweetness enters into brilliance,
The victory of brilliance is soulful.
When brilliance enters into sweetness,
The victory of sweetness is powerful.

Ah, Layla, I am so happy that you have had this respite and that you have chosen to share it so beautifully (I am listening to the music). You have such a beautiful soul!

Hello and thank you for your comment. Yes Beirut used to be charming, It has an air of Athens but not quite...I say it used to be charming because after 16 years of civil war, and the toll it had on people, plus the latest events staged by the turbaned from Iran, has made good chunks of Beirut look like some dump in Qum. A pity really. Still it has managed to keep some of its soul intact. But for how long ?
The film is absolutely charming. I watched it a couple of times. Charming in its simplicity and depth...

Annie,

An amazing video. I have never heard of this singer before. Can I find his CD's easily, is he popular in the US ? I just love the native american culture. It gave me goose bumps. Thank you.

Sinbad, Ze Captain,

Knitting beauty verses on your lonesome ship. I hope the floor of your boat is not too slippery though, with all the high seas...
And I did request a sailing lesson, but I guess you are too engrossed in the silence of your heart. Thank you for your sweetness though.

Hello and Thank You !

I hope you enjoyed the music. If you have musical ears, you may want to check out the OUD from Iraq, on this webpage, right below the blog archive. Very soothing in a melancholic sort of way...

With a bad movie, one can return it/dump it/destory it but how does one do that to this movie????

Hi Layla, I've only just seen your above comment today (Monday)! I can't wait for the surprise ... and I know it will be good!

By the way, the day that you posted this, was certainly a great day for me - thank you!

Love and in solidarity.
