"We are all doing fine!
But you don't believe it."
How I miss it deeply suddenly. His voice. Khosrow Shakibaii. God bless his soul!
And his words! Ali Salehi.
There was the high school era. The time to meet friends, every day. Every single day. And the time to dream, dream among those friends of the same thread. Dream, every day. Every single day. Dream all the dreams in the world. The presence of those friends was enough to make many many dreams seem possible.
"ziba! havaaye hosele abrist"
Now, today, being thousands of thousands of miles away from them, residing on the other side of the world, being out of school for years already, being the wife of a man I love, being the mother of a boy I adore, being the employee of a company I admired, I bump into stop signs on a daily basis. I see people eye to eye while they are looking at me with their dreamless eyes, with their waxed ears, with their closed mind. I see people who are looking but cannot see.
Those friends of the same thread are not here to dream with me every day anymore. Yet, I will continue with my dreaming. I will continue seeing what other might not be able to see. I will continue dreaming of bigger dreams. I will look at the stop signs of the dreamless people and walk through their stop signs.
