Free Tarek Shams

2012-01-17T09:52:10.398+02:00

One year later, my good friend Tarek Shams is being detained for political reasons, while the officers who killed, threw molotoves and rocks in the same events are not even questioned by the investigation judge. Its been alleged that there were instructions to renew his detention for another 30 days, till Feb 12th. Independent judiciary indeed! The military junta is controlling everything and

The Egyptian revolution

2011-01-27T13:16:50.141+02:00

My wife is asking me what's my analysis of the demonstrations happening in Egypt these days. I have none. This is not the time for analysis, we'll have plenty of time for that later. This is the time for action, for energy, for capturing the opportunity of changing this country. The revolution has already happened, by the mere fact that thousands of Egyptians went out to the streets. Egypt is



Feeling pregnant

2009-05-14T12:56:02.072+03:00

It came as a total surprise, when I was least expecting it, and when I was most desiring it. A long fight lasting a few days, I was getting tired. She was very annoyed, causing her to have headaches and vomit twice! Friday morning, after we made up, I wonder, isn't it abit late? I insist on getting a home test, only to have a reason not to go to her friend's party in the middle of the desert.



Capitalism

2008-10-11T09:42:21.995+02:00

To my recent kind commenter. Here's my 2 cents worth on Capitalism today with my humble knowledge about money. I don't think Capitalism will fail, because it already did.I am glad the governments are starting to intervene pumping cash and planning to nationalize banks because it seems this is the only way out of the deep mess free Capitalism got us in. But once that happened, and the government (



Thoughts on the Egyptian blogosphere

2008-07-19T23:48:41.179+03:00

So I've been wondering everytime I hear about blogging, what happened to the Egyptian blogosphere, how far its gone, and how much it has matured. Its been almost three years since I've been actively blogging, not even reading any of the blogs anymore. I would think that things have changed dramatically during all that time. Can I affirmatively say yes? I'm guessing no. I'm guessing the number of

Today he went out late on his own. Found him coming back with 10 packs of cigarettes. Was shocked. Without thinking, told him sharply no way, and took it away from him. Never did that with him before. First time that he gets cigarettes after his illness. He is so bored, waiting for his day. Sad and disappointed in us. I know he is terribly lonely. We never talk, yet I know he has so much talk



Departure

2007-05-20T22:51:07.395+03:00

My good buddy at work has decided to leave. Didn't think I would be that much affected by having someone quit his job like I am now. I feel insecure with him leaving, and I feel so selfish by wanting him to stay. I feel he's leaving me behind, or rather I'm leaving myself behind.I spent 3 hours talking to him today, trying to understand, just trying to figure out why he doesn't see the potential



Partnership

2007-03-29T10:06:24.655+02:00

I've been really worried about us lately. A partnership I cannot stand is one where each partner is living their own separate life, only sharing what they must share. I am in a relationship because I want it to add something to me, and I want to feel that I am adding something to you.It used to be fun to make fun and be sarcastic of whom I'm with, thinking that this means that we're so close, we

"Yes. I am selfish.""Your heavy energy is transfered to me. Its hard to breath.""We must open that wall, its dark and I need the light." "We're keeping the wall.""Yikes. That's ugly (your taste)."Facial expression of disgust."He wants this wierd table. Will you tell him that there's no such thing.""I love this stuff, this is what we should do.""I don't love him as much as I love you.""Its just



Hellish Heaven

2006-12-31T08:55:06.842+02:00

Why would man never be satisied with Plato's Utopia? because of greed and luxury, he argues. Men are not content with a simple life; they are acquisitive, ambitious, competitive, and jealous. They soon tire of what they have, and pine for what they have not; and they seldom desire anything unless it belongs to others.Isn't Heaven as it is described to us a Utopia of the sort. A garden where



She's undead

They look great together. He looks temendously happy, calmly happy.. she looks beautiful. God, he's a very lucky man. I know she died, but that looks like it was a perfect relationship. Everything ends, but not everything lasts for so long so well, and ends by a third party in a natural way like that. He will miss her, he will be sad, but he is blessed and maybe he doesn't know it. His sadness

Yes, I had forgotten about that fairouz tape. I really can't afford to have our friendship shaken, especially after its grown so well over the last period. It is a great connection to me, and I had great times with you. Cinderella one of them, Mohandeseen cafe another, and just calling you casually and doing something. But most important is that I feel comfortable opening up and talking to you,



How to fly

2006-11-26T15:13:52.135+02:00

I also am very possessive, I also want to be your best friend, your buddy and at the same time your lover and perfect partner. You are already my best friend and are on your way to becoming my lover. I'd like you to have all the friends in the world, best friends, close friends, but I'd like to be in a special status on a different level all together. That's not a request, that's a hope. If I'm

Both our letters pronounced together form a very important and a vital word in the science of Yoga: OM."It's a tool, a phenomenon, a mystery. To many people, om is just a word chanted in meditation or as a closing prayer in yoga practice. However, translator notes that according to the ancient Indian traditions preserved in the Upanishads, all speech and thought are derived from one sound om. It

Love begins

2006-11-14T11:28:33.975+02:00

The embryo is well protected. Takes a while to conceive. You know its there but can't touch it or get close. Then you only see it on the remote screen and feel it in your tommy. Then its gender is revealed. Then its delivered and only then is it realized.Life begins



Triggered

2006-11-14T11:28:33.853+02:00

Sitting in my balcony smoking a cigarette (I hope I never develop that habit). For three days now I wake up at 6 and can't finish my sleep. Thoughts of how she is abrupts my sleep. Triggered me from the first instance, and still does, but now in a much mellow way. Love to watch her. Watching all the angles. Don't want to miss a piece.She's part of the scene, one with the surrounding, yet surely



Meaning

2006-11-14T11:28:33.772+02:00

In search of meaning. Its still not obvious. Is it replaceable with a goal? or a dream? Set a goal or have a dream and and you've created your own meaning? Shouldn't your goals and dreams be a reflection of your understanding and your definition? Then, the meaning becomes a cause. A cause for motivation, a cause for passion. What drives you? The meaning drives your passion and motivation to reach

Getting "There"

2006-11-14T11:28:33.432+02:00

So you're in that state in what sense?Well, in that I don't feel His presence all the time. In that I feel a big void in my life. In that I'm searching for a big meaning, which I don't completely grasp yet. In that if all the meaning is really in the Divine Himself, that's fine by me, but then I need to experience that Divine Presence. More strongly and intensly than what I am experiencing now -

He had made an attempt in what he thought was a way for him to find/feel God --even if temporarily. But ofcourse that was too simplistic an approach to get rid of his detachment state. A detachment not from worldly matters, but rather from divine beings. A state that made him realize that he needed to re-establish a connection. So he realized that rather than finding God, he should work on trying
