وتسللت أشعة الأمل الى نوافذ غرقتي

With the sunshine rising in the first day of Ramadan, I became a life again and I decided that I should write a post soon.

” never give up” that’s what I was asking myself to do.

-------------------------------------------------------------

“ life is a book and those who don’t travel read only a page” I read that somewhere, And It’s quite true, a wisdom quote made me feel that I am an ignorant somehow not because I am not traveling (because,I did travel to Syria and Gordan a years ago, and i went to Turkey this year) but it’s the fact that surrounding our situation of not being able to go outside house often,especially in the night, so that’s made us from those who read only a line.

My parents took us to turkey this holiday, spent a very beautiful and strange moment there. Not being me while being somewhere out of Iraq puzzled me. Feeling that i am much fun, open, and free while I am out, feeling that everything is possible and nothings is impossible.

Returning back to Iraq, returned my bad temper and behavior. Enjoying my human being and leaving any relationship related to human doing. Feeling that I am stock in the middle of a circle, with hopeless and depress filling my heart. with no option to survive and no way to run from the reality except by sleeping .

Anyway,I decided to live this year as if it is my last. it might be!

Rethinking of things that I want to do, things I want to learn, places I want to go, books I want to read and posts I want to write .

I read my list and started working.

Till now:

1- I learn to drive a bicycle. I always dream of driving one. My cousin who is my favorite, more like my brother taught me. And in one hour, I left my first steps on the street.

2-I bought brush and oil color and draw my first picture, I took the idea of the picture from the net and I draw it by myself with the help of a friend of my mother who graduated from the school of art and she taught me how to mix the color and how to put the first lines, I never hold a brush before .



I am still working on writing a book.A huge dream, worth working on.funny it is, how my dreams took me so far that I even dream today that I am in opra’s show . who's know!

Anyway, there is a long list waited to be done, let’s hope that I will do every single one.

Be safe where ever you are..And Ramadan Kareem

I believe St. Augustine said that quote about travel.

Your painting is amazing!

Dear HNK,
You have much to be proud of and I'm very happy for you! Getting started on things that we don't usually do is so much harder than doing the things that we already do -- that's one reason why a lot of people don't try new things, because they either don't think of it at all or they think that they will fail.
I also loved your painting. It looks much happier than your drawings, although that might be because it is colorful or because the red person is smiling. I don't know very much at all about art but I do like your picture.

Dear Hnk, I am glad that you felt well enough to write a new post. :)

Making a list of goals is a good thing. It can help you to focus your mind and set priorities for your time.

I have not ridden a bicycle in a few years, but I remember riding my bike everywhere when I was a child and a teen. It was fun, not to mention good exercise.

I really like your painting! It reminds me of some paintings by famous artists. Do you have time to take some art classes at the University? I think you have some talent and I hope that you can have some instruction to grow your artistic skills.

Writing a book is something that I think about sometimes too. Perhaps I will try it some day. I know that your cousin Sunshine has written a book. I hope that she is able to publish her story. I hope that your book can be published someday too. Writing can be difficult, but it gets easier with practice. The more you write, the easier it becomes. So, I recommend that you write in your blog more often! :) I should follow my own advice and write in mine also, but I am so busy writing comments for all my friends. ;)

Take care.

I have always felt that you had a talent for writing, now I see that you are a artist also. It must be very hard to find the courage and energy to try new things but you seem to have found both on your trip to Turkey. Keep it up. I hope Ramadan is your best one yet.

“life is a book and those who don’t travel read only a page” has been one of my favorite quotes since I first read it. As you say it is very true. I too wish to be able to travel more but can't. And your painting really is very good! Good luck on writing the book! I hope to be able to read it one day soon!

I'm glad you learned to ride a bike. Bike riding has been an important way for me to travel. You don't have to go far to see things in a different way on a bicycle.

That's a very nice painting too.

nice painting!
I like to paint, I have lots of portraits in oil colors, painting is realy something good which make you feel creative, and sensative.

I believe that nothing is impossible, and everyone is able to achieve, at least, one dream.

So maybe we will see you on TV in the next season of Opra! but how will we know it's you?

this is not the first time for me to visit your blog, but it is the first time to comment.
best wishes

Micho
