Forever Under Construction


Posted in Blogosphere, Friends by homeyra on September 25, 2008

A while ago Naj and Gina were kind enough to mention this blog for this award. Thank you so much 🙂

Gina, aka ‘The Pagan Sphinx’ wrote about “building solidarity with a blog award“, so I am passing this award with the same spirit to:

1 – Sister-city site: Lair of the Bluebear

2 – Dear friend and great writer Ressentiment

3 – Les Politiques, Sophia and her daily quest for the truth

4 – Pedestrian, simply brilliant!

5 – Peyman, Thinking eyes, blogs in Persian. Great selection of subjects, from which I borrow from time to time – the muse of his blog: two-years-old Yasna

6 – Dear Kitty: many many interesting pieces of news plus a glance at the wild life

7 – Words and Pictures by 37 year old Ali Ramezani who works outside Afghanistan (where I have previously borrowed these pictures). He writes (in Persian) about his homeland and countries he visits, translates Russian poetry … you can communicate with him in English or in Russian

8 –  Farida, Afghanistan in Peace blogs in English. She has finished high school and wants to be an engineer to help rebuild dear Afghanistan

Through the last two blogs you can open a door to a country described during the 70’s by photographer Luke Powell in the following words: “No motor vehicles, no power lines. Everything was homemade and everyone was happy and no one was hungry. It was the most beautiful place“.

Thanks again Naj and Gina 🙂

The rules: Put the logo on your blog, add a link to the person who awarded you, nominate at least 7 other blogs, add links to those blogs on yours, leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

    Thanks Homeyra, Gina, and Naj.

    Dear Homeyra,

    thank you so much for this award. It is very kind of you. All best wishes for your blog.

    I will now pass on the Brillante weblog award to at least seven other people. Not today probably, as I want to think first about exactly which people; and it will have to be blogs which allow comments. But I will.

    Thank you, Homeyra. For this, such a noble cause, we shall certainly all be punished. The world hath no ears for peace except these few. The mob cries. Hang them! Hang them! Hang them all who would make a place in this world for so vile a thing as peace. With you at least I am not alone.

    I would like to help rebuild dear Afghanistan, too, but I don’t think they’re going to want to see another American face for at least a thousand years….

    By which time we will probably have burned up the planet. 😦

    Note to readers: check 99’s Afghanistanomania.
    Figure of speech 99. I am sure humanity trumps nationalities. (Thinking over inhumanity too!)

    Thanks for passing the award on in the name of solidarity, homeyra. I’ll need to add a few extra hours this week to my blogging to check all of your recommendations.

    Yours in Peace,

    a few extra hours! 🙂
