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 ...

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 rise. 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.

Tango ...


A little secret i want to reveal, i've always wanted to take Tango Dance Lessons :) . And after attending my first, and last, Tango Ball, i even wanted to learn spanish so that i can also understand what's being said in Tango songs ! , I love tango music, i have the famous Scent of a woman piece of tango music as a cell phone ring and i Love the movie itself, not only because it's a good movie or because of Al Pacino who is my favorite actor but because of the Famouse Tango dance scene.
I think what i like most about it is the Passion, the Slick movement, the Heat .... and, may be, the figure of a professional Tango dancer ;) . I love to watch this lovely passionate duel in each dance, Oscillating and Vibrant.
It may be late, and for many reasons impossible, for me to start learning Tango dance now, though i'd love to :) but anyway this post is trying to pay an homage to a wounderfully crafted movie i watched a bit of only yesterday , an Argentinian movie by the name Tango, no me dejes nunca (1998) where every scene is a Wonderful Tango, real or virtual :) .
