    Hi. Finally got around checking your website and I really like it. Good luck with it.

    Hello Maryam, thx for your visit… 🙂

    Hello Homeyra. There are some things I’d like to know, there is very few “About You” here… Give us a little more, please. Nice site, I like it.

  4. homeyra said, on November 19, 2006 at 11:17 am

    Hola Rochonf, I am living mainly in the blogosphere these days 🙂 I am glad you like this site.

  5. Rochonf said, on December 24, 2006 at 5:30 pm


    I don’t find the right meaning to this we do these days. I mean we, the people that traditionaly are into the Christian heritage culture.

    But what we do is to tell the people (the people that are important for us in any way) that they are in our mind, in our memories, and we have good wishes for them.

    yes, any day along the year should be good enough to wish it, but… perhaps these days we take profit of our quite time, our private secret thinking without hurries, or perhaps the happyness of having our friends and family close to us.

    Not much sense on it, but anyway I wish you and all your readers a Happy Christmas time, or a happy winter, and happy New Year, no matter your religion, no matter who your God is.

    Sincerely, Merry Christmas.

    Dear Rochonf, thank you for your great comment, your kind words and wishes. True every day should be Christmas. Everyday is Christmas!
    I wish you and your loved ones a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

  10. homeyra said, on January 5, 2007 at 7:07 pm

  11. proggiemuslima said, on January 14, 2007 at 3:46 pm

    homeyra, commonplacer at is asking Muslim bloggers to comment on What Makes Muslims Laugh. I’ve already posted. I think it is an interesting topic.

    I would lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvve to see you post on this if you can. And, you can tag another blogger, too!

  12. homeyra said, on January 14, 2007 at 4:49 pm

    Without reading what he wrote I would say the same things that make non-Muslim laugh!
    But I will give it a try Muslimah. Thank you for the link 🙂

    Hello Raza, thank you.
    I am glad to have found yours. I’ll have to take more time to go through it.
    I am lucky to have seen your city. Something fascinates me about Pakistan. It is so close, yet so different… also thanks for the link to Ibn’Arabi Society!

    nice blog homeyra

  24. homeyra said, on July 8, 2007 at 9:32 am

    Thanks aMmAr (must be careful with the caps!)
    Thanks for your visit 🙂

  25. Amirali said, on July 28, 2007 at 12:01 pm

    Hi Homeyra,

    Well I guess I should have left a comment here for you saying what a nice blog you’ve put together, but when it comes to blogs (perhaps many other things) I’m like a peasant in a town. Your blog is first for me to visit. Good work.


  26. homeyra said, on July 28, 2007 at 3:13 pm

    Dear Amirali
    Thank you … so you could say that this is the best blog you have ever seen and it won’t be a lie 🙂
    Whenever you have time, have a look at those linked in the blogroll (right column), if you have a peculiar interest you would certainly find people blogging about.
    I don’t watch TV, and as newspapers have too often disappeared on me, I have lost the habit of reading them. With the internet I really don’t miss any: for instance just see all those great journalists (“news” section of the blogroll) …
    Not to mention so many great people – and now good friends – that I have met all over the world.
    Spend some time in their blogs … and who knows! maybe you’ll be inspired and start your own blog 🙂

  27. Ramtin said, on October 12, 2007 at 1:39 am

    Hi there—nice site. Keep up the good work!
    (nice translation of “edeaa”…)

  28. homeyra said, on October 12, 2007 at 3:20 am

    Hi Ramtin, thanks and welcome. I am glad to have found your interesting and informative site.

  29. proggiemuslima said, on January 1, 2008 at 9:53 pm

    Hello, Homey! 🙂

    Happy New Year to you and your family!

  30. Brian Appleton said, on January 25, 2008 at 10:27 am

    Thank you for your visit to my site. I have always been fascinated by the art scene. To me the artists are the ones observing the soul of his environment.

  35. homeyra said, on July 25, 2008 at 5:39 am

    Welcome 36O. I am glad to discover Kuala Lumpur’s art scene through your blog.

    man Roya nemishenasam. Vali, to mano mi shenasi. A long time ago were friends. We still are I hope. I lived in france; then I left. We knew S! Yes I know, it would be easy if I spelt it out. We also know A and C. There is a dwelling involved too…. But it was a long, long time ago….. And now we are back! A bit like terminator, but less mean.

    So, hi Homeyra. Hope to see you in person soon. Hugs……

  40. homeyra said, on September 22, 2008 at 8:34 am

    Raya man hichi navafahmidam!

    Ok now I know you are not Raya. Does S stand for Shoja? He is the only person I know who can generate so much excitement 🙂

    Managing Director

    The Persian Arts Festival celebrates a night of Persian Poetry at the Bowery Poetry Club.

    Join the Persian Arts Festival for Shab-e She’r, a night of Persian Poetry with this month’s reader Nahid Mozaffari, on Wednesday, January 21st 6:00-7:45pm, at the Bowery Poetry Club, 308 Bowery (between Houston and Bleeker). For more information call 212-614-0505 or go to $6.

    Mozaffari’s publications include Strange Times, My Dear: The PEN Anthology of Contemporary Iranian Literature (Arcade Publishing, 2005), a collection of post-revolutionary works edited by Mozaffari, as well as “Culture and Resistance: Writing Back to Power” in Targeting Iran, David Barsamiam, ed. (City Lights, 2007)

    Mozaffari received her PhD in history and Middle Eastern studies from Harvard University, and has taught courses on the history, culture, politics and literature of the Middle East and North Africa at various universities in the United States and Europe. She is currently working on two books and teaching modern Iranian and Middle Eastern history in the graduate program at New York University.

    Bring your own work or favorite Iranian poetry to share during the open mic segment of the event.

    Hosting between 20 and 30 shows a week the Bowery Poetry Club (BPC) is proud of our place in the lineage of populist art: the Yiddish theater, burlesque, vaudeville, beat poetry, jazz, and punk that gave the Bowery its name.
