I haven't heard from my beloved friend Mohamed from Syria
in a few weeks.
Mohamed always wrote me weekly usually on Fridays when he
was off and now with all the problems in his country he
can't connect to me.
May 16th he wrote this in part I will share..
My beautiful Fatimah, I hope my message will find you well and healthy .Thank you always for your caring toughts and your kindness.Thank you for being the person you are:kind and thoughtful,sensitive and considerate,a generous person.Your loving heart shows its caring in your every thought and feeling.I am fine and always surrounded by somefamily members. I can't not visit my home town as usual because military holds many cities under siege and tight control.The internet ,cell phone and text-messaging are frequently blocked.As I know the regime is scrutinizing its contents in order to prevent activists from using it in organising protests and informing the world ouside.I was not able to check my email because the regime blocked the email service and some social networks even when the internet is working . the Authorities enable text messaging especially when they want tosend their warnings to people threatening them for the consequences in participating in demonstrations. However I hope I will contact you in the right moment.
Today.. I walked down to my car and on top of my car sitting was this most beautiful Red Cardinal Bird.. Male..
He was looking at me as if he knew me and at that moment
I was thinking of Mohamed sending me this beautiful bird
as a sign that he too was thinking of me at this very moment.
I was going to take a photo however, he flew away as I got closer..
The song inside this post was sent to me by Mohamed also
as he would always share a song I haven't heard before
and write me such beautiful emails.
Free as a bird .. I wish this for Mohamed, and free
as a bird was this beautiful Red Cardinal..
With Love and hope,
