Mother cow with her baby in Sonipat, India


In honor of Mother's Day today, I want to share with you a wonderful video of a beautiful mother cow nursing her baby in the streets of Sonipat, India. Taken in the early hours of the morning, late into the night - cows in India are treated with the utmost respect. This is one of the most precious things you will ever see in your life.

Sumit's recent video message to me


My amazing boyfriend Sumit is filled with many surprises. He sent me this video message earlier today from Chandigarh, India letting me know he loved me. For those of you that do not know, I met a man from India recently. We started dating in late May. Sumit is younger than me, but that is okay, as we have a strong connection not to mention great communication, amazing chemistry and evident compatibility. He makes me extremely happy and makes me realize life is worth living. It has been almost two years since Joe and I split and I always wondered in spite of remaining friends with Joe, if I was destined to find love again. 

Today, I am happy to say that I have and it is stronger than ever. Sumit makes me realize the beauty of life. He makes me not only see, but love and appreciate everything that comes into my life, including the little things. And no matter big or small, he allows me to realize we all have value and a true purpose for living. Everyone has a place on earth.

Sumit is not only intelligent (he went to college at 16 and graduated with a bachelor's at 20), he's a polymath in a sense where his intelligence goes beyond anything academic. Never have I ever spoke to anyone who is on his level intellectually. He's also the most positive, free thinking person I have ever met, as he is extremely optimistic and ambitious. He is human and he has his moments, but in the end, he makes me the happiest I have ever been in a very long time. 

With that said, those of you reading this, I hope you find your "Sumit" as I hope you find love. I believe everyone in life is deserving of love and happiness including those of you who despise me (and you know who you are). They say a life without love is like the earth without the sun. And I think there is some truth to this.

Golpari (unedited demo version)



This is the latest and greatest song I wrote called "Golpari". Although this is unedited, it is a demo version of the song. Part English, part Persian. There is no song on earth like it. I hope you all enjoy this and like it. Listen with headphones. This will be produced better soon. This is just a general idea and rough cut of the song.

Back in Time by Pitbull

From Pitbull's album "Global Warming" this song is amazingly dope, so to speak. Even though this song came out in 2012, I can listen to it now in 2014 and it just never gets old, as I never get tired of hearing it.

Welcome to Yellowstone National Park 2012


Yellowstone is such a fascinating place. If you haven't had the opportunity to visit, I truly recommend visiting today. You will never see a place like this ever in your lifetime.

The truth about Kony 2012

These are some very insightful yet interesting facts about the whole "Kony 2012" crusade. I have to admit, I actually bought into the "Kony 2012" movement simply because it is/was an act of awareness. It was taking a negative and simply making it into a positive, using a very deep yet moving message. 

The truth is, there is a man named Joseph Kony that really exists, but the documentary that is going around the internet projects an entirely different message than what really does exist. In fact, the newest video (the actual follow up) has disabled the ability to rate and comment via YouTube. 

To separate fact from fiction, I saw holes in this documentary the moment they mentioned Jacob. He is the only African boy they mention in the Kony 2012 video. The biggest problem that I noticed is that they fail to mention any other people who live in Africa. They use one person's alleged commentary to support an entire cause? A cause asking for your time and your money.

Also think about this (and it isn't hard), if you were not a shady fraud, wouldn't you encourage dialogue and give individuals (especially Americans) that right to comment on something that is asking for their money and time?

This entire movement has more holes in it than the finest Swiss cheese you can find. I have spoke with several individuals who have been banned by the Invisible Children Instagram simply because they picked out small these holes (which are passed off as alleged fact) that this entire campaign lacks absolutism. The Invisible Children encourages people to donate their time and money, yet when they are questioned, they ban people? Even when there is zero ad hominem involved? No spam ad nauseum either.

That seems very shady to me. At this point, I do have a relatively mixed opinion on Kony 2012, but overall I think it is a ploy to generate revenue using an approach that lacks bona-fide knowledge. Great job Billy Housh for doing an incredible job filming this.

This was an amazing tribute to Whitney Houston


Just thought that I would share this. Yet another reason to love Yolanda Adams. If you can't see the video, just click here right now.

Some inspiration to start off Monday...


One of my favorite singers is definitely Yolanda Adams. I have been a big fan of her since I heard this song, which was back in 2002. I think even Whitney Houston quoted her as having one of the greatest voices she has ever heard. I think she's on the same wavelength as what Whitney is/was.

My cat says hello

My cat Murphy saying hello. Despite being quite frisky and finicky, she is very intelligent and also extraverted. She is very capable of communicating relatively well and it is obvious that she understands the English language.

Praying For Time by George Michael



If you cannot view the video, just click here.


Lyrics:


These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
These are the days of the beggars and the choosers


This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses


The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll take our chances
Because god's stopped keeping score
I guess somewhere along the way
He must have let us alt out to play
Turned his back and all god's children
Crept out the back door


And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be praying for time


These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear twice a year


This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there is over here


So you scream from behind your door
Say "what's mine is mine and not yours"
I may have too much but i'll take my chances
Because god's stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things they sold you
Did you cover your eyes when they told you


That he can't come back
Beacuse he has no children to come back for


It's hard to love there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope when there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
So maybe we should all be praying for time


-George Michael
