Anna Karenina 1

Strange as it may seem, he was in love with the house itself, with family, specially with the feminine portion. Konstantin Levin could not remember his mother and his only sister was much older than he was, so that for the first time he found in the house of the Shcherbatskys that charming cultivated life so peculiar to the old nobility, and of which the death of his parents had deprived him.

 I started reading Anna Karenina. It seems to be a masterpiece and a well written novel by Leo Tolstoy. I have commenced a new travel to the grey, gloomy and dark side of the world, i.e. the russian literature. I met Russian literature years ago. I have discovered their uniqueness between the lines of "The master and Margarita". It stands out as simply one of the best books I have ever read in my life. I utterly enjoyed the magical touch of Bulgakov that has simply blurred the lines between magic and reality (magical realism, hence unbelievably real!). Then I read two other books from Bulgakov, I was already a fan of Russian writers. I was introduced to Chekhov short  stories. And that Doctor surely knew his way around human relations and contemplations. But as I have mentioned above the foggy, cold and bitter taste and atmosphere of Russian art was not exactly what I was looking for. And I could easily feel that my soul was rejecting it. Hence I stop excavating deeper into Siberian masterpieces!

Now, this is my new meeting with Russia and I shall share some quotes from the book with you.

Requiem for a Wrecked ship.

Friendship is a kind of fruitful and ripe relation. Here in Arizona under the glamourous sun shine, fruits can either get ripe or rotten way faster than you believe.

Sad Goodbyes

You are leaving again...
Needn't you say a word
Since your tears bear the burdun of farewells....

Mir Hossein, A man whom a nation calls him by first name..

There is no good compromise between bad and worse, but there is still scope for damage control.
I read the mentioned sentence in NY Times today and immediately my mind dragged me to Iran and it's infamous presidential election.

Mir Hossein, in his 18th manifest, wrote:
There were some people among the green line [...] whom were saying they will choose the bad, among bad and worse and this choice had made the continuity of that line possible. The real correction and amelioration will start from this distinguishing ability and responsibility for their choice.
Majority of Iranians tried their best to do some "damage control" but their silent demonstrations was crashed by the roaring sound of bullet and mindless faithfulness.

Now its been about 160 days that he is imprisoned with his wife. And I missed him, not because he was an old politician whom called himself "the bad choice" but because he proved himself to us to be an artist whom can't break his vows to us.

Hommage to In search for lost times...

Reading various types of books from variety of authors, I reckon I can safely say that I have found Marcel Proust's prose as soothing as coffee. When I started rereading it, every night I opened it and each night sip several pages from the hot meanwhile a bit bitter coffee. Unfathomable human interactions were untangled in front of my eyes by the magical power of Proust's prose. And in that very moment, I was drenched in profound thoughts. Allow me to correct myself. I was buried under the sudden avalanche of nostalgies and bitter/sweet memories. I miss reading In search for lost time.
