Forever Under Construction

I started to move long time ago! But this week it is for real. A very busy and messy week ahead.

    can you translate the circled text for me please 🙂

    Sure aMmar 🙂
    It says something like: Ah, if life had a reverse gear!
    آه اگر زندگي دنده عقب داشت!
    You find often poetry written on trucks and buses, still they are far from the wonderful Pakistani ones.

    99: Not exactly, but this doesn’t mean that I couldn’t accommodate my future visitors:)

    wow, how poetic!

    I didn know that even the truck drivers in Iran are so aesthetic 🙂

    But the thing that amazes me the more is your knowledge about poetry which is embossed on Pakistani trucks n buses & the fact that how ridiculously funny they are 😛 😀

    How did the move go? Did you survive?

    I don’t find the Pakistani Trucks and buses ridiculous at all, they are fabulous! Who says that a car has to be sober an minimalist? The users have appropriated the “device” and I am all for celebrating differences – and eccentricities! 🙂

    Proggie, I am surviving 🙂 I know that you went through the same experience recently.

    Is my cabin in the mountains ready for me yet?

    I have to go be a mountain sage and that cabin looks even better than my imaginary cave in China.

    I could stay with Homie-banoo while waiting for my bed and desk to reach Iran….

    I’m getting in my mother’s bathtub to dream about it now. 😛

    P.S. Are Iranian roofers any good? 😛

    I moved into my current house a little over 20 years ago. I still have boxes that were never unpacked when I got here. They take up space in the garage, sitting and collecting dust.

    The longest I stayed in any house prior to this one was less than two years. Some places as little as two weeks. All the time dealing with landlords, some of whom were a real challenge to deal with.

    My smallest residence was a walk in closet in a friend’s house when I couldn’t take my college dorm mate any more. The largest was a 14 room 2 story farm house in the country – built in 1850. When the winter wind blew, snow would filter in through the cracks. The glass in the windows was so old that it had flowed down leaving the panes thin on top and thicker on the bottom. Bubbles in the glass had been stretched out of round.

    I even lived a spell in a little old house between two sets of railroad tracks. When the trains passed it would rock as if in a 7.0 earthquake. The cupboards all had latches to keep the contents inside.

    Occasionally two trains would be passing at the same time – we would go outside for fear of collapse.
