Fighting Siesta

Russian Dolls
A childhood gift from David George
.
My friend's friend turns 23 in a few days.
Life wouldn't be the same without your false assumptions, dear.
.
Jacques-Louis David's The Death of Marat.
One of my all-time favorites.
.
My mother and my aunt's idea of communicating is playing card games.
(Spade, as in David)
.

Firenze? Yabeela

Sisters leave to Athens and Italy Friday.

Parents are considering selling the house.

And I'm pissed.

.

ومن مجلتي المفضلة الفرقان (العدد 402)، ومن بابي المفضل قطوف أسرية (ص 22-23).. تقول نورة يوسف الخميس أن من صور الاختلاط المحرم: 7- قعود العريس مع العروس على المنصة (الكوشة) في ليلة الزفاف أمام النساء.. كله ولا القعود

.

There, Not even a hint of politics.

Nellie Mckay - David

(You can call this post "The Importance of being David")

el russian dolls.. where is their dady? :P

and what about the autograph on the jersey? my curiosity is asking and wondering.

and for the kosha thingy.. maybe it depends on the proper design ;) maybe ako design separates them.. or blocks the view of others who happen to be there just for the scene :P whom they might leave if they don't have a good view ;);)

and the last and... the design of the spades is LOv'Leh :D can u post the whole set.. hearts clubs and diamonda! ;) thanks :)

Your old friend's name was George not David... David is what Mom used to call Nasser when she was pregnant as she wanted a blond boy so bad.. and look how he turned up :p

And you forgot one more David... The David Star: http://www.flickr.com/photos/88949016@N00/204003181/

شفت الــ Russian dolls في ايكيا، آخر مرة رحت ، كانوا قبل الكاشيير ، عند ركن الشموع، يعني لمن يستهويه الامر :)

شروق ، حلو البوست ، حسيته قريب من القلب ، كأنتِ ، وتذكرت اليوم صورتنا واحنا منشدهين نقرأ الـ "فرقان" قبل الانصراف

محبتي لقلبك الحلو
سلاما ورحمة لــ لبنان

شروق؛
أثناء الحروب والإقتتال يلجأ الناس أحيانا إلى النكت السخيفة والأفلام الجنسية الحقيرة للخروج من الآلام النفسية التي يعانونها. ولذلك أستطيع أن أفهم محاولتك النبيلة للخروج وربما لإخراجنا كذلك من الحالة النفسية التي نعانيها بسبب الأحداث الدامية في لبنان العزيز. ولكن آلامنا تتجدد عندما نأوي إلى الفراش ونحاول النوم. لبنان أنت في قلوبنا

القعود من قعد وقعد تعنى قعود وهناك انواع مختلفة من القعود فهناك قعود القرفصاء وقعود المو قرفصاء والاثنان غير مستحبان اذا قعد المعرس بالكوشة مقرفص وغض النظر فلاباس اما اذا قعد مو مقرفص ومبحلق بالصبايا السافرات فانها من الكبائر اذا هداه اللة ورغب بالتوبه من المنكر فعلية بعدم القعود لمده شهر ويفضل عدم القعود بالمولية

بس حبيت اوضح فتوى الاخت نوره بالاختلاط المحرم القعود وجزانى اللة وجزى الاخت نوره الف خير....

وخلكم من القعود على كرسى الكمبيوتر وادعوا للبنان والشعب اللبنانى ابرك من القعود وكلة فى ميزان حسناتكم

Cool I love those Russian Dolls, got a whole set of them from a communist friend (hmm..where'd you go?).

You reminded me of my old history teacher..he's canadian & his arabic name was "Dawood Kharoof" (David Lamb).

Let's go on a cruise?

A3sab said...

A3sab said...

A resounding "NO!" An interesting thing about critical mind is that it may tell us that we only judge others or that we only judge ourselves. If you judge yourself, you DO judge others. If you judge others, you DO judge yourself. The judging mind has no way to separate you from anyone else. There is a third piece to this triangle that most people don't realize and that makes it even more interesting. If you judge, you are also looking at others to see if they are judging you. You can now add rejection and abandonment to the possible consequences of an active critical mind.

Wouldn't it be nice to be free of judgment? To put that critical mind aside and enjoy personal peace instead?

Allah 3alaich...I love Jacques Louis David's work. Another favorite of mine is "Oath of the Horatii;" I really love how David incorporated the personal aspect of the three brothers going to war and actually, one of the weeping wives' brother is one of the three Curiatii brothers who will face the Horatii brothers.

And as for Marat, well...he's actually soaking in the tub because he had a skin disease. A young woman (Charlotte Corday) came into his bathroom and stabbed him to death.

The thing I don't like about David though is that he's a suck up. When Robespierre was doing his "Reign of Terror" he backed him up with propagandistic works and when Robbie was executed, David backed out. Phooey!

I wish I was with your sisters :( Inshallah they have fun in Italia...la wallah tadreen shlon, I guarantee they will have fun ;P!!
Ahh my lovely Italian men...

رشيد الخطار said...

Erzulie

Don't mean to interrupt. But I think Robespierre was necessary. No matter what we think of him.
Every revolution has its dictators/victims. In a time of shifting loyalties, maybe David was right?

Just a thought :)

Your comment took me back to college.

It's not David's 'hypocrisy' that I find somewhat irksome, it's the number of death orders he had signed!

Great artist nonetheless.
