أراد رجل أن يبيع بيته

لينتقل إلى بيت أفضل..

فذهب إلي احد أصدقائه وهو رجل أعمال وخبير في أعمال التسويق... وطلب منه أن يساعده في كتابه إعلان لبيع البيت وكان الخبير يعرف البيت جيداً فكتب وصفاً مفصلاً له أشاد فيه بالموقع الجميل والمساحة الكبيرة ووصف التصميم الهندسي الرائع ثم تحدث عن الحديقة وحمام السباحة..... الخ... وقرأ كلمات الإعلان علي صاحب المنزل الذي أصغى إليه في اهتمام شديد

وقال... أرجوك أعد قراءه الإعلان ....

وحين أعاد الكاتب القراءة صاح الرجل يا له من بيت رائع ..

لقد ظللت طول عمري أحلم باقتناء مثل هذا البيت ولم أكن أعلم إنني أعيش فيه إلي أن سمعتك تصفه
ثم أبتسم قائلاً من فضلك لا تنشر الإعلان

فبيتي غير معروض للبيع!!!

هناك مقولة قديمه تقول

أحصي البركات التي أعطاها الله لك واكتبها واحدة واحدة وستجد نفسك أكثر سعادة مما قبل ...

إننا ننسى أن نشكر الله تعالى لأننا لا نتأمل في البركات ولا نحسب ما لدينا... ولأننا نرى المتاعب فنتذمر ولا نرى البركات.

قال أحدهم :

إننا نشكو لأن الله جعل تحت الورود أشواك...وكان الأجدر بنا أن نشكره لأنه جعل فوق الشوك وردا ...!!

Listen to Nina. She's got so many good things to be thankful for. She's got life.

Didn't know she once was marryed to a north african (tunisian)!!! and didn't know she was that much politically engaged to defend a global cause. In the Hard Talk interview she said that for her, music was second to nothing.

Nina on hard talk program :

She actually looks even more Gnawya in the song "I put a spell on you" in the Canada concert, the robe, the jewellery and the hair cut... the musicians, the guitarist, are amazingly perfect. Nina left us so much beauty, may she rest in peace, for ever.

There is definitely a message of fertility there.
May her boobies rest in peace.

I put a spell on you
oh the passion, the raw sheer energy, the true spirit and emotion...

and look at the lovely woven African style robe she's wearing in this more recent concert in canada:

mbouchi, here this one has the lyrics -- you can also just google "nina simone lyrics" and find all her songs.

and people - don't tell me this doesn't make you cry. if it doesn't -- you have NO HEART!! lol =P

Adnane, when I read your comment on her "got her boobies" and the link you made with the nurturing ability symbol, I thought right away: Africa.

Mboushi, Antr and Salem answered you well. We tend to overlook the bliss of simply being a human. Because the human creature, naked and raw from any status, has much to be proud and thankful for: our eyes, ears, fingers, hands, legs, skin. I'll try to write down the lyrics when I get some time. Hmmmmm, yet even if you read them I doubt they would have the same impact as if you heard her perform them under that soul-filled music and minimalist notes.

Antr, Salem, she also says she's got her boobies :) a symbol of nurturing.

She says she has nothing that people consder basics but she is 7amdallah that she got life and freedom that nobody can take from her.

She says that even if you would be Mboushi.... Hmedllah, you still got a life :-)

A master piece !

I love Nina Simone. The first time I heard any of her songs was her rendition of the classic "Ne me quitte pas" by Jacques Brel. I was floored!!

A very commanding voice!

I'm sure she has inspired many through her words and music,

That's as human as music can get!

A matter of pride!..

What a beautiful life story!..
