A bientot ... Until the next spring ...

I leave you with a smile and a wish and a thank you for all your comments and support. It has been great.

Next time I’ll write to you it’ll be from a new place and, who knows, maybe with a new tone.
I never summarized what my blog will be about. I didn’t know in advance what I wanted to talk to you about and what my message to you would be. I still don’t.

One thing I know for sure.. The best thing you can do in life besides loving is dancing!

So gentlemen,
Whether you’re half naked schmoozing the ladies in a beach party somewhere, or in your best drinking champagne on a boat in city island, or losing your mind jumping up and down and shaking to a shakira song in some foreign country, just keep dancing.
And ladies,
Whether you’re cute as a button in your heels and your up-do hanging to your man’s shoulder at the opera or swaying to Joe’s Waynik, whether you’re in your sneaks and hip hop hat hopping on bars dancing techno, or you’re twirling in a salsa joint somewhere in the Caribbean, remember the goddess you are and just keep dancing.

Be good to yourselves and each other, don't be to the left or the right be everywhere, don't forget your family and loved ones and the palestinians, help because you can and because it all concerns you, don't be limited by your borders (not in an occupation sense Israelis), don't be an Arab or a Lebanese or an Israeli or an American, be a humanist, live in every direction, now is the time.

And know that the world is yours.

transient said...

just as your prolific and mesmerizing words begin to seep through barriers you steal away to hybernation. What metemorphosis will spring bloom?

de 1- ana min baddo ybakkineh?
de 2- we are a democracy, you can't just decide to leave all of a sudden.
de 3- I don't shake it to shakira, I shake it to the pussy cat dolls :P (akh)
de 4- grab a xanax, or go on a vacation, but come back.
de 5- does your leaving have anything to do with Rumsfeld resigning? (I could ask him to come back you know)
de 6- ... :( good luck! and thank you - please keep smiling - and think about "urban" issues.

Ingrid said...

Dear Mirvat,
you're so mysterious. Well, at least to me I have not had a chance to 'get to know you', as much as one can online. C'est dommage mon amie. But, you have good reasons and I will keep you in my favourites list (still have not put up a blogroll on my blog, tsk tsk) and visit you come spring. Au revoir!

C-dell said...

I don't know if you will ever read this, but this post is sad like you are leaving and never returning. This is my first time coming to your blog. Hope I didn't miss you

jooj said...

You will be missed :).
All the best.

Mirvat said...

haider, sorry i wasn't visiting a lot of blogs lately but i promise to read more of yours

Rhiannon said...
