Snake Peek!

In a sunny, mild and beautiful day, we were picnicking in a side-city park, on a labour day weekend. Many people walking long side the beach with their dogs. Then, an unusual pet, a snake, came along with his owner! It was kind of surprising and mysterious.

While the owner was taking the walk, some people with hesitation but curious, got closer to ask him questions.

It was triggering for us too to take advantage of this exclusive show. I mean, how many times you see a person walking around, so casual, with his snake pet?

So the mystique site did its job, and my friend and I, hesitantly walked toward the snake and its owner. When we got closer he was explaining that he has 4 of them 2 females and 2 males, and that this one was kind of bored, therefore he took him for a walk! He also explained that there is no danger to us if we want to pet him. So we did, and contrary to my imagination, he was soft, gentle and mushy.

Although it was a bit scary but I liked the experimentation. :)

Here are some close-up pictures:



Paris & Moi! In the honor of 14 Juillet …

Me and Paris go way, way back. I am talking about a long relationship, on and off, back and forth!

First, we’ve been introduced when I was 8 years old. My mom & I were visiting my oldest brother in Paris, where he was studying and working.

It was like magic for me. I liked everything about this beautiful city. From the red flowers hanging from the wooden-framed windows, beautiful architect, cobblestone pavement in narrow streets, lovely sound of French language, to the smell of the metro & very chic people. Although I was young then, but I recognize now, I was able to distinguish the difference between there and the country I was born in. Somehow, as a child, I felt a different kind of freedom, like people kissing on the streets which was totally unusual in my eyes. Showing their love for one another and being free to do that, revealed an incredible, uncomfortable and joyful feelings in my heart.

I went back to Paris when I was 15 years old again, and stayed for over 2 months in the company of my brother, his family and friends.

In a different age, knowledge, understanding and expectations, I experienced a unique love for this city. I had many of my first experiences at once and It’s imprinted in my memory forever, like wine tasting, the discotheques, and shopping solo!

I returned there after 4 years to study and I am visiting every few years since then.

Pictures that I am sharing here is from my last visit about 2 years ago.

 

In conclusion: I love Paris, period. I wish to return and live there for the rest of my life, which seems impossible at this moment, but you never know! ;)

Happy July 14th!

Where is your favorite place in the world, and why?

Love is in the air – Spring is here – A new year is unfolding!

Spring: Another beginning of the earth and the celebration of “Nowrouz” (New Day) the Persian new year.

Let’s welcome it with open arms and celebrate it with unconditional Love, like the love that Nature gives us.

Let’s cherish each moment that is unfolding before us, and forget about the challenges we had in the past.

Let’s give with Joy and accept with our eyes wide open what is revealed to us.

Let’s open our heart to this joyful event of nature so we can receive the magic of its gift.

Let’s begin a new chapter with all its ups and downs, because without the fall there won’t be any rise.

Let’s forgive and love, even those souls who hurt us the most, because love can conquer all.

Let’s accept that mistakes are for human beings and believe we are all the same.

Let’s welcome the spring, as it always comes after the winter.

 Happy Nowrouz & Peace for our planet!
