From a Persian blog

“I will participate in the demonstrations tomorrow.  Maybe they will turn violent.  Maybe I will be one of the people who is going to get killed.  I’m listening to all my favorite music.  I even want to dance to a few songs.  I always wanted to have very narrow eyebrows.  Yes, maybe I will go to the salon before I go tomorrow! There are a few great movie scenes that I also have to see.  I should drop by the library, too.  It’s worth to read the poems of Forough and Shamloo again.  All family pictures have to be reviewed, too.  I have to call my friends as well to say goodbye.  All I have are two bookshelves which I told my family who should receive them.  I’m two units away from getting my bachelors degree but who cares about that.  My mind is very chaotic.  I wrote these random sentences for the next generation so they know we were not just emotional and under peer pressure.  So they know that we did everything we could to create a better future for them.  So they know that our ancestors surrendered to Arabs and Mongols but did not surrender to despotism.  This note is dedicated to tomorrow’s children…”


  1. Ohhh my God! Very tragidramatic! Should we still call ourselves as lucky? No, never while others try to survive. This note proves once again that there is no peace on earth:( Am afraid maybe it won't.

  2. Intrigued by your post, I followed your link, but ...
    So you do speak Farsi, Nomad, and translated the above?

    As I just noticed: Nice to see the avatar of my Turkish seanachie (SH) amongst your followers.

    The peace of the night.


Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
