Face From The Past





A couple of days ago, when I was in Paris, and since the early morning I had the feeling that I would see something/someone from my past, from the days I was living in Iraq! As the day went by that feeling was becoming stronger and stronger. In the evening I sat in a restraunt having dinner when that feeling was like a sign, very strong feeling that I will meet or see someone I used to know. I went back to the place where I stay, switched on my laptop and while browsing the Internet I came across a photo of him. The same ugly very pale face pausing smiling - I don't remember him smiling that much! He lost a lot of weight, that was obvious from the picture. He used to be a sort of a symbol of accumulated fat in a body of a human. It didn't take that long for me, kept staring at him and remembering the old days, then I closed the browser.

Ahhh so now it makes sense the question of 'what is the strangest thing to happen to you?'

sometime the universe is funny and sends us signs... sometimes they are strong and we heed them. but many times they go unnoticed

"they go unnoticed" ... very true. Imagine if we, humans, pay attention to every detail in our 24 hours every day, does this imply some sort of change in perception or to the way we look and act upon things!!!?
