And here I am awake for almost a day in like 3 more hours! and have a big day ahead, so what other than my dear blog to spend a few minutes with? trying to vent and maybe fall asleep :)

I pity those who find their value with how much money they have, to them I say: get a life!

The never ending tasks list seems to get bigger as we get closer to the zero hour, the tension is higher, the solution is to cut the story short, do your tasks as efficient as possible! make your mind and be precise, especially if you are dealing with indecisive women! you have to take the lead and be simple, straight forward and cut the crap out!

I finished the Alchemist, have a big review that needs to be revised before publishing, it will come soon

With all the political things going around the urge to write about them is getting bigger! this is a sign of aging! I hope I don't become grumpy?! Still I will try to keep this blog as quiet and peaceful as possible, however!! Kuwait is on the top :) so I might spice up the blog every now and then

With all the dust around, الله يعين اللي فيهم حساسية

Nothing worse than a control freak, but the weak who is controlled!

Facebook to me, a spark that is fading

No more in my brain to write, nighty people

Oh one more thing, McDonald's kids meal for girls offer Hello Kitty toys :D

ما احب السياسة

ما احب السياسة بس أمس كان يوم غير عادي! مسكت روحي من فتره احاول ما اتطرق لهالموضوع و اشكثر حاشني قهر و حسره على الغير واعيين للتاريخ و المتناسيين لاحداثه

حزب الله بعد المناوشات اللي صارت بينه و بين اسرائيل برز له عشاق و مصفقين من كل ارجاء الوطل العربي، بغض النظر عن من يحركة و القوى السياسية التي تسيّر هذا الحزب و عن اهدافه بحربه على اسرائيل، فهل ننسى من طعننا؟

نعم، كثير من الكويتيين تنااااسوا لما حطوا ستيكرات على سياراتهم و طلعوا بمظاهرات و افتخروا بتأييدهم لحزب الله و ساهموا بنشر شعاره و افكاره! و هل نسينا عماد مغنية ؟

لمن لا يعرف هذا الاسم اعطيه هاللنك و هاللنك هديه و عساهم يتعضون!؟ و بسنا تناسي للي يأذينا و الاهم القاء نظرة على هذا الموضوع عند فرانكوم ،،،، حتى لا ننسى

Digital Prints of the Everyday Life : By Loaay *Review*


And so around 12 noon I had sometime to pass by the Exhibition, today is the last day and the evening period is from 4-8pm

The following is my review of what I saw in Beit 28,,,, Dar Al-Funoon

Around 12 noon I went there alone, and enjoyed it very much and I must note that three of the pieces made me smile,,,, I did look as if I was crazy for a bit, smiling so happily alone.

note the following is with respect to numbering not when i viewed them nor how much I liked one or the other :}

1: No.17 : A million Shades and one Huw, 2005

Huw has the most adorable look! and I could not resist smiling back at him, a lovely portrait, although I noticed that most of Loaay's work is somewhat abstract which is a thing I liked very much since most of my work is abstract, at times colors and shapes speak more clearly than anything.

The painting simply illustrated a little Utopian child, with a charming look! from the painting, to be more exact the digital effects you could not tell his true color nor exact features but the abstract way the artist chose to mix with this live portrait added a lot, its not an every day portrait anymore, it kept me smiling and thinking about his choice of colors.

2: No.18 : Cold Edinburgh, 2005

The love of Cherry Blossoms did not come in as a surprise, since the artist expressed his passion for the Japanese culture and in a charming way the music he listens to while working way playing in the background, which mixed the Japanese culture and the soft Jazz in the same time "at least this is what I could concentrate on, since the music created an amazing background for me while walking around the exhibition and for moments there I lost time and space and enjoyed the atmosphere fully",, back to the painting's description, when I read it my smile kept becoming bigger and bigger that is a lovely portrait that has an abstract finish.

A quote from the description for the painting in the exhibition guide:

"Cherry blossoms are the artist's favorite flowers. In that moment LOAAY didn't see a person, he saw a cherry blossom weathering the cold season to bloom in spring. Her cherry coat and the way she sits on that bench with her arms crossed, her knees touching each other and her feet that are too cold to fully touch the ground, assisted the artist to see a feeling instead of a visual"

That was an amazing description! and if you are curious, its the picture on the cover of his exhibition guide and also the brochure which you can find in his website.

3: No.27 : Seeing life through color, 2007

Seeing life through color made me VERY happy just to see it and how cute, small it was! To me it had a more extended meaning, other than what was written about it in the guide! I enjoyed its size, we can color our life no matter how small the colors are we still can see them and find our smile through them :}

And many more are displayed and are worth seeing and buying if you are an art collector, the most capturing of the fully abstract paintings were "What doesn't kill you" and "Reviews" these two also captured me and made me stare at them for a while...

All in all I enjoyed Loaay's exhibition, and look forward to see more of his work, proud of him as a Kuwaiti artist Allah Ywafgah,,,, And a special thanks to Mr. Loaay for inviting me to a lovely exhibition ,, thank you very muck :D

Before I start I would like every one to pray for our sister's mother.

الدعاء أقل ما يمكن ان نقدمة لاخت عزيزة و زميلة بالتدوين


عندما نصل إلى مرحلة يفتقد فيها بياض الصفحات تلك القدرة الاستفزازية التي تجعلنا نكتب، فهل نستطيع القول بأن عقولنا خالية؟

الاعتقاد بان تلك الفكرة صحيحة بحد ذاته جرم بحق العقل، فهو ذلك العنصر الذي يُستفز أو يخمل حين يشاء. الكتب و المقالات تملا هذه الدنيا التي نعيش بها على مر العصور، فلا نستطيع أن نقول بأنه لا يوجد لدينا ما نقول أو نكتب، السؤال هل ما نقوم أو نكتب مثري أم لا؟ و هل سيقرئه الآخرون ليجعلوا منه نص ذو قيمة أم سيبقى طي النسيان بين أفكار عقل الكاتب الذي قد ينساها أو بين الصفحات المنسية كالكتب المهملة بالمكتبات التي لا تقل عنها إهمالا من قبل أمة إقراء التي لا تقرأ.

أن يغطي الإنسان في حياته كافه ما كتب قد يبدوا محض جنون و خيالات لعشاق الكتب، و لكن الحل بأن يقرء الشخص ما يراه مثيرا للاهتمام و هو الأمر الذي يتحدد بحسب الشخصية و الميول و التربية " لان التربية مسئولة عن الكثير من التوجهات " وفي زخم القراءة المشتتة التي أقوم بها ما بين الروايات و الكتب العلمية و الكتب الشعرية و المجلات المصورة التي تسعدني أكثر من سابقاتها، أجد أني افتقد للتاريخ، فهو العنصر المفقود في ثقافتي الشخصية فلا اعرف تواتر العصور التي مضت ولا اعلم موقعنا بينها.

من أهم قراراتي هذه السنة أن أقرء و أن اكتب باللغة العربية، و الانجليزية لا مفر منها لأني أحبها.

الإسهاب عن القراءة وليد الرغبة بالكتابة، فبعد قراءة كل كتاب أجد أن مداركي توسعت و حتى حينما أقراء تعليق أو مقالة تضيف لي ولو معلومة واحدة تزيد من ثروتي الفكرية البسيطة أجد أني افخر بنفسي لأني أعلم.

فهل تعلمون؟
هل تجدون حصيلتكم الفكرية تزيد في كل يوم بحياتكم؟
أم أن أيامك تتشابه لدرجة الملل؟
