The farewell kiss lingers on the cheek
As I think of son at uni and the recent callous bombing in Beirut
that took the life of yet another 'good' politican.
He left over a week ago; is that all?
and I wonder how he's coping when the phone rings.
"Hi mum just wanted to say hello" he says
in a very reassuring voice with a happy lilt in the tone ….
"How's uni" says me stupidly as I clear the lump in my throat.
"Great!" comes a word of comfort that sums up the Lebanese sense of 'savoir vivre'
as I pass the phone to hubby and they share a joke and a laugh.
"Just keep learning to duck and dive son and you'll be fine"
… ever the optimist my husband ….
who hands back the phone with a twinkle in his eye and a smile that can move a mountain of humanity and stop a tear from falling.

Note to self: think positive and try and move a mountain! J

Hello. This is for all of your Jordan ladies, I am sorry i could not find anyway to contact you but through the comments here. :)
I looked at your flickr photos about Jordan and I love them, very very nice. I would like to ask your permission to use your pictures if they are not protected, if like, and make a video about Jordan. It is just a hobby of mine, I usually make videos of pictures I shoot for places I live in or visit, but when I see nice photos like yours, I am moved, and I think they deserve to be shared on a high traffic site such as youtube. I am not associated with any business...I just do the videos for fun and exposure. If you agree, I will mention the source of the pictures on my video.
You may check my youtube channel at:
I also blog, one is a personal blog and the other is a cooking blog for Middle Eastern food and much more, here are the blog addresses:
Hope to read from you soon. You may contact me by emailing me. My email address is summers57 at gmail dot com. Thank you so much for your time.
