I Am Somewhere

By Dany Bachir, published on Mar 18, 2008

For the past few weeks, I had little time to write but, as always, enough time to think and explore. Thinking was and should never be bounded by time or by schedules. For some reason it’s still a free activity that you could fully control and practice.It’s amazing the huge number of people you encounter in life. Or even in few weeks. You meet the happiest people and, on the other hand, you meet the least happy ones. Unfortunately, in between, you don’t meet much of them. They have disappeared in a way, just like the middle class has. Does this relate happiness to money? Well maybe it does.... (more)


A tribute to the dead Poets that still live in their deaths.

By Dany Bachir, published on Feb 23, 2008

Some of these men left us but did in fact leave something behind. Valuable thoughts put into words. Words that you still can feel while you’re walking on a sunny day feeling the wind gently touching your cheeks and fluidly floating in your hair.Yes. Focus and you can hear them telling their poems. And then you think to yourself: these people never left without keeping something behind.These people are dead now, but they are still members of a highly recognized society:“The Dead Poet Society”In 1989, Peter Weir paid tribute to these Poets in the award-winning motion picture “Dead Poet Society”,... (more)

The Missing Luggage

By Dany Bachir, published on Dec 25, 2007

All I could see were too many dark faces rushing around and talking loudly. It was dark and cold. The whole scene was taking place within a small area. Half of that area was outside under the moonlight and the other half was inside under a dirty roof where smell was almost unbearable. All I cared about that night was my luggage. It was lost somewhere among hundreds of other bags. Jumping around left and right in search of that small bag. The bad news was that I couldn’t find it. And the later it was getting, the lesser bags were remaining. And the chances that my bag got stolen were rising.... (more)

Past & Future - What Else?

By Dany Bachir, published on Nov 6, 2007

We have all gone through tough times. But we have also had our many laughs and good times. I have seen my nephews being born and raised to be great men of the future. But I have also seen people leaving me. Walking at a distance while turning their backs at me. Some of them cared but others didn’t. I only wonder if they ever did. You know what? I don’t blame them. They probably didn’t know me enough. Or wait a minute. Maybe it was my fault. Maybe I didn’t introduce myself well enough. Yes. I tend to be kind hearted sometimes and always claim responsibility for the mistakes of others.... (more)


It Will Do You Well

By Dany Bachir, published on Oct 3, 2007

To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering, one must not love. But then, one suffers from not loving. Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer; to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be happy, one must love or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness. Yes indeed. Can we put away suffering from Love? Never. If you love, you must suffer. And if you suffer, you must love. The best situation ever? Is when you love to love and love to suffer. Then you will never mind loving because you don’t... (more)

The Truth about Cats and Dogs

By Dany Bachir, published on Sep 26, 2007

Is that there will always be cats and dogs. They will never like each other but somehow they manage. Personally I’ve seen some cases where, under the same roof, they are managing to accept each other. But. It’s not always the case. Sometimes, cats and dogs living together make the lives of the house owners – miserable. The big picture is where two political sides are determined not to sacrifice any of their demands or beliefs. And the people are the victims. Us. Yes. The people are the humans and the politicians are the cats and dogs. Obviously humans and animals will never be able... (more)


Time Will Tell

By Dany Bachir, published on Sep 15, 2007

Beirut, Lebanon. Saturday night. Almost 11pm. Home … Alone …. Thought I’d escape whatever takes place on a Saturday night. Thought I’d give sometime to myself. Some quality time where all I have is me, and no one else. Being alone is probably a lie. There are so many people with me. In my thoughts. They are right. Those who say that you need to be around people to forget about people. Yes. They’re definitely right. When you’re alone, they start hunting you back. Sometimes their presence is not welcomed. My thoughts are going to so many places and toward so many others who have... (more)

It's Easy If You Try

By Dany Bachir, published on Sep 3, 2007

"Few people think more than two or three times a year; I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week. That’s what George Bernard Shaw had to say once. What I would say? Think. As simple as that. But. Believe me. Not an easy thing to do. For the last few days I’ve been really trying to figure out the true meaning of “thinking”. This pushed me to go through many dictionaries and ask few people around about the word. Finally I got quite a long list of meanings and I started eliminating the ones I thought weren’t appropriate. Finally I ended up... (more)

A Silicon World - A Bit of Nonsense

By Dany Bachir, published on Aug 16, 2007

I hope this one doesn’t offend some of the readers. In particular the “she” readers. Well in case it does, please accept my sincere apologies. Your comments are welcomed. But watch out. Your negative ones will let me know a lot about you. Guys. How lucky have we been for the last month or so? What do I mean? ROOFTOPS! A great gift from God has come down upon us. Well not exactly. We have to take the elevator and go up few floors. Music, drinks, smokes and “silicon”. Covered with skin. Don’t take me wrong. I like it. Not love it. Just like it. Many others love it though (mostly... (more)

You Will Show Me Around

By Dany Bachir, published on Aug 15, 2007

July 31st in history. 1932: Nazi Party wins 230 seats in Reichstag and begins negotiations for Hitler to be accepted as Chancellor. 1978: Gunman shoots his way into the Iraqi Embassy in Paris. On that same day: I was born. Few years ago, on my graduation day, I told my Mother few words that in fact I should be telling her everyday. I was twenty two. I told her that twenty two years earlier she had brought me down from Heaven to Earth and on that day she took me back from Earth to Heaven. Well. She does it every single day. Just by smiling to me. A Mother who has lived, struggled and lived.... (more)
