Tribute to Anaïs Nin












We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. 
We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present.
We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.

- Anaïs Nin -

February 21, 1903 - January 14, 1977

A compilation of photos of the author throughout various stages of her life. 
The reading was recorded "Anaïs Nin Reads," in which Nin recounts conversations with Henry Miller and Lawrence Durrell.

Kurdistan by Abdulla Goran

Kurdistan:
You are my abode,
my abode of thousands of years,
I have been nurtured by these valleys, summits and hummocks,
My breath is full of the fragrant breeze of your highlands,
My lips are satiated by your snow waters,
My gaze is used to the sight of your silvery twilights
Reflecting on evening snows,
My ears are habituated to the music of your waterfalls
Pouring down from high quarters above snow to green landscapes.
My tongue bloomed with your beautiful speech,
With words of your mountain songs,
The words of folk tales told around fireplaces,
The words of your children‘s lullabies.
When blood stirs in my veins,
It does so under the power of your love, I know.
Your love, my mother and mother of my fellow race
Was bequeathed to me from my ancestors,
And it will be inherited by sons and grandsons,
As long as a Kurd survives in these high mountains.

- Abdulla Goran -
1904 - 1962
Kurdish poet

Lakota - The Star People

 
* A Message For All Of Humanity *

 ~ May the Creator bless you all with health and happiness ! ~

Some Natives might think that this doesn't sound old traditional Native to their ears. But these fellows in my Lakota - Star People video are real Native Americans from Lakota tribe and they are part of the Healing World Ceremonies. Many Native artists today are switching from the one way monotone style to more sharing & understanding style which is the key to unite all four colors people to bring the message of the world of sharing and understanding between each other so no more war dance will be ever need to be played anymore.

"We are everybody brothers and sisters and we have to walk away from our shadows to see the beauty of our homes"
