A Splash of Color(and a Ray of Hope)

A couple of links:
News:
  • My dad got me a cute Kia Picanto (2006) last year and I have been lazy with the paper work, but as of the 19th, it is officially mine! I even have new plates!
  • Early 18th: The death of our dictator president's grandson. Some Egyptians did sympathize. Some couldn't; simple couldn't because they blamed the kid for his grandfather's corrupt system. I have a couple of things to say regarding that matter. I can't help but think how hard life was for the 12 year old, having to live with the burden of being Mubarak's grandchild and not his own self..you know? And I also think he shouldn't be blamed, poor kid. I know where he is right now is a million times better than here. I hope he's happy, and I hope it's a lesson learned for Mr. President!
  • Mohammed and I decided we are not buying a shabka (rings) now, we have more serious concerns; a place to stay, it is not as premature as it sounds..provided that we won't get married before another 2 years.
  • I recently joined twenty something bloggers!
I was checking google reader while searching for green pictures on weheartit, and creature comforts had this posted...I love the color! So inspiring! I also found this..
I think the reaon why green inspires me is because, to me, it symbolizes growth. Because there is a dominance of green around us. Because gardens and parks trigger that spark within me. I also love yellow, for the sun. And blue, oh, I love blue!! all shades of blue (my sister is a purple freak)
"I dream in a land of color, there is no black and white. Just like crayola crayons - no color has just one name. There's tropical rain forest greens and caribbean sky blues. It's where things are abundant and dreams are free to flourish, there are no barricades to any one's potential. It's infinite. Life goes on." here

Maybe I just love a splash of color, maybe it is because of my age- maybe not. I hope not. I hope I grow old to be the grandmother in pink and yellow and floral prints. And the mama with the ribbons in her hair, and braids. But I know that the almost 22 year old I am plays with her almost 8 year old brother, and my cousin's kids. I know that the most fulfilling job I have ever had (so far) was a kindergarten teacher. I know I love colors. But then again, who doesn't!

My weekend starts today, I wish you all a colorful weekend! Please enjoy your colors. And maybe post about them, maybe a detailed post about your favorite color(s). I should do that too!

I think it's impossible for me to choose one color as my favorite! or even two, ok... I can't at all!
I am so in love with colors! I believe that they make our lives... and whenever I imagine myself as a blind person(something that I always do); the biggest problem is not too feeling the colors...it's so sad...

ooooh the colours in the last photo really make my brain feel awake!! I'm a strange sort of person - I don't like blue. My favourite colours are... yellow, pink, black, purple... Depends on my mood and what colour I feel I need!

Drinking sunrays sounds even better...

beauuutiful sentence and translation. Perhaps you should become a translator (too) - your both have the skills and the poetic mind needed!

Your comments are always so warm and so sweet; you are. (the keyboards here have the Y and Z reversed and I keep losing track of the apostrophe and exclamation point and other things) I surely owe you a real email, and when I am home next week you will surely receive one.

Bisous...
