ـ "... إن فى الإنسان منطقة عجيبة سحيقة لا تصل إليها الفضيلة ولا الرذيلة ، ولا تشع فيها شمس العقل والإرادة ، ولا ينطق لسان المنطق ، ولا تطاع القوانين والأوضاع ، ولا تتداول فيها لغة أو تستخدم كلمة ... إنما هى مملكة نائية عن عالم الألفاظ والمعاني ... كل مافيها شفاف هفاف يأتي بالأعاجيب فى طرفة عين ... يكفي أن ترن فى أرجائها نبرة ، أو تبرق لمحة ، أو ينشر شذا عطر ، حتى يتصاعد من أعماقها فى لحظة من الإحساسات والصور والذكريات ، ما يهز كياننا ويفتح نفوسنا على أشياء لا قبل لنا بوصفها ، ولا بتجسيدها ، ولو لجأ إلى أدق العبارات و أبرع اللغات ... " ـ

توفيق الحكيم

Within man lies a deep wondrous spot, to which neither virtue nor vice can reach. Upon which the sun of reason and will never rises. In which the mouth of logic never speaks, the laws and rules are never obeyed, and not a language is used nor a word is ever spoken.
It is a distant Kingdom, beyond words and meanings. With everything is a sheer murmur offering wonders in a blink. From the depths of which, suffice a single tone or a flash of mind or a scent of a perfum, to allow rise of emotions, pictures and memories, a rising that will shake our being and open ourselves to things we can neither describe nor materialize even if we used the most refined of phrases or the most skillful of languages.

Tawfiq Al-Hakim.

Hard rock :)


Last November i wrote about something that i admit i like, rocks, i started with gypsum for "teasing" reasons ;) and the title was Soft Rock. What i really wanted since then and even before that -and was delayed for whatever reasons - was to write about what i really like; this Hard Rock, the hardest of all rocks, Diamonds.

Today, i was introduced to a Swarovski ring, and i never saw Swarovski crystal before, it was amazing and it revived this state of mind of writing about diamonds from My point of view.
I like them very much; but not for the girl's best friend concept , though very impressive economic concept i admit :) . It's just that I fell in love with the sudden glow of a diamond in face of light. I'm not an expert in diamonds but even the lowest value diamond can give me a shiver when it suddenly boooooom "Glows". I just feel happy watching this glow as if hearing music !!.
I don't know, but i feel like a blazing fire is burning inside the glowig diamond, and that this fire is cold as ice, an icy blazing fire, that's the feeling i alwayes get !! and i alwayes like it.
When i asked my friend today what she feels when seeing a crystal or a diamond glowing , she said that she doesn't feel much, like it but that's all. Well , i feel happy and light-hearted, really , and i follow the diamond with my eyes to catch a sight of every glow of it. Is that normal, apparently not, my friend laughed when i told her what i feel; and i suppose most of my friends will do :)

And by the way, this feeling has nothing to do with the size of the diamond , even the smallest can do this to me ! :)
