I just received the You tube link of this wonderful evening from Maitri Somaia, the director and producer of the video for this the poetry recital evening in Dubai.
So many scenes come to mind, not only the beautiful comments the people made, but also the powerful looks they had supported me with during the recital.
On another level I was reminded of the times I had written each of these poems.
The awareness of each breath in the jail cell I was never in.
The sound of the Azan in the depth of my heart as i traverse many lands with no mosques and also the sym card that connects us all, and yet, separates us all as human beings not looking into each others eyes.
What a night, what a life, what a glance, what a wink of an eye…. releasing moments and letting the stardust sit on my shoulder as i wonder what life has in store for me with the new year coming.
If you were at the recital, here are a couple of moments to remember the evening by and if you are not here is a glimpse into the jail cell i shared with others one night in Dubai on December 14th 2011.
