No Road Is Ever Straight

I just got back home from yoga which was quite relaxing after the busiest day at work. It was actually more like a body-flow session which made it more fun. Needed it badly! The problem is I’m so tired and I still took some work home so right after this, my mind will be again occupied with spreadsheets, reports, etc. Not good. Not good at all. Let’s not complain though. I’m happy and I’m convinced that no road is ever straight. Now listen to this:

“Our lives are inspired by the dreams we have from the earliest stages of our youth. When you combine passion and hard-work, then success is always possible. While no road is ever straight, dedication and persistence will always lead you to your dreams.” — Arte Moreno – Businessman

Life is beautiful. Keep smiling 🙂



It was my third time seeing Tori on a big stage. It was an open door one so It was cool watching her with her piano under the rain with the biggest pint of beer ever! Yes, this time was only her and her piano with no band supporting her. Once again her music, her voice and the way she plays the piano fascinated me; made me feel over the moon. This is what is written on my new t-shirt:

“What you didn’t count on was another mother; A Mother Revolution” – Tori Amos

Thanks to Katy for her company and to my sis who introduced me to her music more than 10 years ago.

Better grab a coffee. I need some caffeine.

Catch you darlings later…

TIFF – 2005

Did you know that TIFF is regarded as the second largest and most important film festival in the world after Cannes? It is indeed and it’s just around the corner.

I’m going away soon so it’s a pity that I couldn’t buy a film package this year. You’ll definitely see me in the “Q” for few of the good ones though! Many of the stars including the one and only, Morgan Freeman, will be attending the Festival this year. I’m still not sure how many Iranian films, if any, are going to be screened this year but will keep you posted.

I want to see what people saw and I want to feel like I felt before…

More to come on TIFF…


Be Exceptional

I definitely need a sleeping pill tonight. I almost had a gallon of coffee and here is what was written on one of my cups today:

“Be exceptional. Make tremendous efforts to be extraordinary. What a privilage to be here on the planet to contribute your unique donation to humankind. Just make sure you do so …” — Shelby Lynne – Musician

Back to my book.

bonne nuit 🙂

It’s Saturday night and I’m reading. I always think that reading as well as writing are great to ignore the stuff which should be ignored and it’s so true.

Why is my heart so troubled?
Why has love reduced me to nothing?
Why does this heart of mine fight with me day and night?
Why? …

— Rumi – Whispers of the Beloved

Shall I stay or shall I go? I think I’ll go.

Much love to you all…

It’s almost noon and I just woke up. I’m now listening to my new CDs. Her voice comes from another world. From another world indeed. Some think it’s dumb to buy CDs while you can download them with a much cheaper price. Maybe! Maybe not!
I have the worst hangover and it SUCKS.

I’ll be back soon; I promise…

Toronto – August 19, 2005

Hello Strangers:

I’m feeling shitty since this morning …

I went to hell; I might as well learn by my mistakes; I at twenty-four was insecure; I do whatever it takes.

I don’t know whatelse to say… I’m going to get ready… I’m going out… I need a drink… I’m going to have fun… I’m going to live for NOW…

Sorry for being miserable… At the end of the day we are all human beings…

Stay safe; Stay merry…



Today Is Another Day …

It’s pouring out there! Reminds me so much of good old London. I miss London. I miss my little flat. I miss my gorgeous friends. People hate the weather there. I loved it though and I even miss that. I miss my old neighbor with his messy hair, calling me LUV with the strongest British accent. I miss that handsome homeless sitting on the corner, smiling and asking for help. It was his everyday job to observe the most expensive cars and the most posh people passing by him and all he was doing was smiling at them. How fair is that?

Today is another day and it’s the first day of the rest of my life.

Today – Version #2

I am so happy for her; she really deserves it. She has a big heart. An amazing one and today is her day.

This is on my mind since this morning and I keep singing it:

She’s only got one reason to live, this is your life. She’s only got one message to give, give it tonight. Wake up and shut up! It’s time to smell the coffee …
