From the first day of a week-long reduction of #violence , picnicing with this bunch and watching the #sunset on the mountains behind Aino Maina, #kandahar I hope this frame gets engraved in my memory as an end to #bloodshed and the beginning of a lasting #peace for #afghanistan

A #latergram from #bamian trip, craving some of that dead silence interrupted by the crunchy sound of our steps, knee deep in the fresh snow: "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference." Poem by #RobertFrost i constantly find myself engaging in existential conversations with friends these days, must be an early #midlifecrisis or the start of a new decade #2020 🤷🏻‍♀️ #bandeamir #afghanistan

"Starry, starry night Paint your palette blue and gray Look out on a summer's day With eyes that know the darkness in my soul Shadows on the hills Sketch the trees and the daffodils Catch the breeze and the winter chills In colors on the snowy linen land" #bamian #afghanistan #starrynight #nofilter

Reflection of #Mtkvari river on @gianlucacecere photo under the #bridgeofpeace in #tbilisi #georgia I had quietly sneaked out for a week, searching for inner #peace . I filled out my days with aimless long strolls which brought all these little gems and surprises to me, hidden beneath the skin of this ancient city. #latergram as I've boarded my plane heading to #kabul #afghanistan

176 lost lives, hundreds of shattered families, a devasted #diaspora and two scarred nations are the cost of a "human error". #Iran admits to shooting down the #ukrainian plane unintentionally. Shame on us, shame! "Hearing sad stories about home is nothing unusual for Iranian diaspora. We grow up with fear, tension, uncertainty, and conspiracy theories. Many of us migrate for peace, but no matter how far we get, how long we have been away, and how many passports we carry, we still care about the country we call home, even if we are not welcomed there." From an op-ed 'Ukrainian plane, Iranian Brain and Canadian Pain' by Kaveh Madani #ukrainian #PS752
