Une belle journée à Venice sur Québec- A beautiful day at Venice sur Québec- 26 Juillet 2014

Heureux d'avoir cette journée pour nous rendre au St-jean sur Richelieu et Venice sur Québec.

Happy to be able to make this day. I was hard to do one day out of Montreal and so many places to go, finally we decided to go to St-jean sur Richelieu and later at Venice sur Québec.

Une belle journée d'été-A beautiful summer day!

My friend, the Lovers Willow Tree,

My friend,
My dear Willow tree,
Nice was our visit,
In this nice sunny day!

The moments of meditation,
The delicious stories you passed to me,
The love stories,
The hurts and joys stories,
I read them all,
In the texture of your lifeful skin!

Thanks to you,
And thanks to me,
To have been on time,
To convince to leave some parts of you,
Maybe, the most important parts of you,
On this small Island of hope,
In this lifefull park!

I was almost about,
To let my tears drop,
To be proud,
And thankful to your try,
To the small tree,
You gifted us,
With your last breaths of life,

The small branches and leaves,
Growing on your dry left trunk...

My Willow tree,
The lovers's Willow tree,
Now, the kindergarten kids' tree,
I am grateful,
I am so happy,
To know that,
What I have always believed,
Could be so true,
And the conviction of,
Letting you stay,
Reading your sorrows and desperate cries,
For willing to stay,
And reading the heart of all those lovers,
Sitting down on your branches,
Sharing the most wonderful and sweetest moments,
So Unforgettable!
To let you re-live, conserve the hope!

My Willow tree,
I saw today,
All I needed to see,
I might have been called for a pilgrimage to you,
And I stayed long time with you,
Through long meditating emotions,
Travelling through each line and each grains of your skin,
And, hearing the beats of our hearts,
Listening to the most delightful songs,
Oh, thank you, thank to me, thank to the lovers,
To the kids, their teachers,
To the visible and invisible life,
And, here you are,
Alive and so delicately present!

Tavalodet Mobarak, Bonne Anniversaire-Bonne Fête- Happy Birthday Sepi Jan-

Mon Fils, mes fils,

Comment m'imaginer ne pas être mère!
Moi, qui adore les enfants,
La vie et son soufle à travers tes souffles, de vos souffles!
Fils, mon fils, mes fils,
De me sentir être moi,
Telle que je suis,
La personne qui a pu évoluer,
Grâce à toi, à vous,
À tous nos petites et grandes expériences,
Aux défis,
Aux sacrifices,
Que sans vous,
je n'aurais jamais pu,
Même pas essayer!
Les douleurs qui sont devenus indouleurs!
Les chagrins qui sont transformés en joie!
Les peurs qui sont disparues!

Mon fils,
Mes fils,
Je t'aime,
Je vous aime,
Sans vous,
Je n'étais qu'un fruit inconnu,
Dans un monde invisible!

Je suis fière,
Je n'ai aucun regret,
Je me sens accomplie,
Je me sens complète,
Pleine de vie,
Pleine d'histoire,
Et, cela,
Grâce à vous,
Mon fils,
Mes chers fils!

Alors, merci,
Merci à toi,
Merci à vous,
Merci à nous,
Merci à la vie,
Pour le cadeau d'être une mère,
Une mère pour vous,
Et, ainsi,
Une mère tout simplement!
Avec une grande gratitude,
Je vous aime,
Je vous adore,
Je vous admire,
Et, ceci est plus sincère des cadeaux!

Birch tree, here your message! 1st of July 2014

Forgotten Birch Tree calling upon the photographer!

While, passing by,
Watch me carefully,
Hear me:
<Life, has forgotten me!>
Say to your people,
Tell them,
That I am so desperate,
Being naked,
And, never my leaves grow no in spring, 
Nor in summer!
Let them know, 
Even though,
I do not feel alive,
But, I do not feel dead!
What am I suppose to do?
Where is my gardener?
To do something,
Cut me!

I am full of sadness,
So, isolated,
Oh, no, not fair for me!

My only friend,
My old friend,
My only visitor!
My birdy,
Is exhausted of singing for me,
The only hope song of its repertory!

My dear little birdy,
Go, somewhere else,
On a fruitful tree to sing your love songs,
Joyful songs,
At least, to be nourished!

Cause, I am giving up!
No more tears to drop,
No more hope to go on!

Do you hear me, the photographer!?!
You, who enjoy my beautiful branches in Winter,
It is not winter anymore,
Spring has come,
And is gone since the summer came!
I thought I needed to wait,
But, this is too long,
Something is wrong!
Please, be shocked,
I beg you to be sad,
Please, admit that,
Life has lost its memory,
And, figure out why!?!

Shahrzad Ghaffari, July.09.2014

It was 1st of July and I was driving toward Manoir and in rush to check if all the cars had been correctly parked and just a few meters from Manoir, I was stopped by this Birch tree and I found its magnificent branches in the beautiful blue sky so interesting. I said to myself,<It is worth to take at least a picture!>. And, I did, but later I noticed the bird on the top  of the tree. I had a kind of strange feeling about the tree and suddenly I became conscious that it was already July and the poor tree did not have any of its leaves! It was sad but I was too busy to go further and forgot about it until now I was going to put some photos here but I crossed the Birch tree and all became so present. The Birch was not dead, and I had got its message. I sometimes, when in rush,  keep the feeling of a fast interesting moment somewhere in my memory until making it alive and live it in an appropriate time! to give it more time. This is now the moment. Yes, I was sad about this tree and am still sad. An unfair situation!

Gifts for Me!

Thanks to Life for being so generous to me for all its challenges, lessons, for my generous wise family and friends of Heart...Thanks to myself for being able to be open and keep my smile, my precious companion of Life, for being so present even in the toughest moments! Thanks to my wonderful sister Fariba for her endless encouragements from always, my family, friends and all those precious ones who helped me out, guiding me for express my commitments to Life, for letting me practice my skills of being helpful and open to the Grace...!

The most wonderful accomplishment for me is to be able to express truthfully. 
I love this photo for a few reasons, first of all because Sepandat and Maziar are naturally themselves in this photo and because Bahram is the photographer! 
It had been a big challenge for me is to encourage Bahram to express more his creativity!

<Our treasures, our sons>, Photo: Bahram Tajick, summer 
And because of the wonderful adventure! I love the idea of offering to Bahram & Sepi & Mazi to make this fast trip of Europe (and without me!) a few years ago...They did it their way, came back with just a few photos and each one of them were fantastic (I had the gratitude that the three of them had the talent of photographer)! I do not say more about this photo because it means a lot to me but what is amazing is that usually photos represent the capacity of the photographer to frame what s(he) sees, feels or want to express, a tool of creativity...
And, I chose this photo as one of the <best gifts> he could have ever offered to me!
Thank you my dear Bahram for this amazing photo even though you might not have thought I would take it this way!

Running while being still,
Being still while being active!
Dynamism of Life is everywhere,
In every thing,
In any time,
While walking,
While watching,
While tasting,
My eyes travel,
My Mind traces,
My senses wake up,
My memories let them surrender to
The Conductor who is my Mind,
And let it happen...

I love it,
The dynamism of the stillness,
Where I travel through,

All is One,
One is All!

Through the crowd,
Through Silence!

Always ready,
To appear,

Like a child,
Or, like an old,
I can be wherever,
I can be whoever,

Who cares!
I am still here,
In a shape,
In a form,
In a movement,
Through the senses,
Or, only through the Mind!
Feeling Life,
In Me
In All!

About Me

J'ai toujours été ravie de mon prénom Shahrzad شهرزاد qui avait été choisi par ma chère mére, un être exceptionnel que j'appelle madar en persan. Quand j'ai appris que Shahrzad voulait dire:'Caractère Libre', j'ai sourri...quand j'ai lu l'histoire de Shahrzad, j'ai encore, quand j'ai appris que Shahrzad était dans la Perse antique la déesse de l'apprentissage (ou quelque chose similaire,à confirmer), j'ai me suis demandée comment ma mère savait que ce prénom allait tellement bien à sa fille Shahrzad!
