Humanités

I don’t know my dear
If this is a dream
What year it is and what day,
I don’t know my dear,
If I am yours or

If you are my dream  . . .

–from the movie Underground (1995)

Life on the other side of the wall!

Apart from natural sciences, I am interested in literature, theater, music, painting, movies, and philosophy—art. Here I may post these sort of themes, each and every one of which have highly influenced human beings, especially from the Renaissance onwards.

This is `the’ question: Why are there beings at all, instead of nothing?  -Heidegger

To me have been influential …

novel: The Blind Owl (Sadegh Hedayat)
play: Waiting for Godot (Samuel Beckett)
painting: Picasso’s blue era
poem: At five in the afternoon (Lorca)
music: Symphonic Poems (Franz Liszt)
movie: The Decalogue (Krzysztof Kieslowski)


Blue is the wormest colour!

Blue is the warmest colour,
as is
Red!

Red

I also pen short stories and poems as well as translating a piece, if it interests me, now and then (all in Persian though, and do not expect much!). I undertake to put some of them here; behold some.
