My Great Aunt Fatma

My dear dear grandmothers sister (allah yr7amha oo yr7am mawtakom).

We went to visit her today. I love going to see her.

She reminds me so much of my grandma 7ayate.

She talks like her, she laughs like her, she dresses like her, and she tells me the funniest stories about my grandma.

I like to sit there and imagine that it is my grandma in front of me, and just for a split second i believe it is.

I have to resist the urge to throw my arms around her and cry my eyes out.

I usually burst into tears after leaving her house, missing my grandma more than ever.

Today she was telling me about sharg. And my aunt promised to take me to where my grandmas house used to be.

As I was leaving i gave her a hug and inhaled the sent of oud and bukhoor. I kissed her head, her shoulders, her cheeks. I cupped her face in my hands and told her ill be seeing her soon.

I want to sit on my grandmas lap again. I want to hear her sing to me. I want to place her hand in mine and play around with her loose skin and ask her yadity shloon eedich 9arat chithy.

My grandma has been gone a long time.
But i still feel her close by

3asakom ma tafgidoon 3azeez inshalah.

yadityy i miss u.

It is nice to see someone filled with love.It's not like
"Oh flan we miss you"
and then when you are away they eat his flesh.
I lost my uncle in an accident. Your article brought me back to the days where he deliver us to school.You also brought me back to the 90s. Those everything in Kuwait was so simple.

I know that feeling.. alot of people think that if people die, we ought to forget and live.. You even see in 3aza some people look soo, madri, chinna 3adi!

I don't know I just don't.. sometimes I cry my eyes out over my grandma and grandpa, as if it happened yesterday.. :(

:( Oh dear,
I recently lost my grandmother who used to live with us so I had a deep connection with her. I am missing her too.

Ramadan Mbarak sweets.

Alla yer7am mawtana :-) I like to sit with my grandma.. she have lots of interesting stories to tell and the cutest comments too. My great aunt was also awesome (alla yer7amha) she used to recite poetry to people coming in to visit her or leaving after a visit. She was full of grace :-) Alla yer7amhom

الصعود إلى الهاوية‏

ترك أم الرشراش لأسرائيل و بيع الغاز الطبيعى المصرى لأسرائيل بخسارة 13.5 مليون دولار يوميا و ترك سيناء شبة خالية من السكان لمصلحة إسرائيل و حصار غزة و اللهث لتكوين أتحاد دول البحر الأبيض المتوسط لتسهيل عملية دمج إسرائيل فى المنطقة العربية لتستفيد أقتصاديا و لرفع الحرج عن الأستثمارات الخليجية فى إسرائيل بالمستقبل القريب ، بينما يتم قمع الشعب المصرى بقبضة حديدية بمعرفة أجهزة الأمن و يعيش أكثر من نصف المصريين تحت خط الفقر مع 2 مليون من أطفال الشوارع كل هذا يطرح سؤال لحساب من يعمل النظام المصرى؟ ارجو من كل من يقراء هذا ان يزور ( مقالات ثقافة الهزيمة) فى هذا الرابط

My friend and I were recently talking about how modern society has evolved to become so integrated with technology. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory becomes less expensive, the possibility of copying our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
