सूरज से गुफ्तगू #41

Aesthetic Miradh

दिखोगे या नहीं दिखोगे
कब से खड़ी हु रास्ता देखे
कुछ बोलोगे या नहीं बोलोगे
तेरी कहानी को सुनने को कान है तरसे
मेरी तरह दिलचस्प न सही
पर कहानी तो तेरी भी होगी
मेरी तरह बेख़ौफ़ न सही
मोहब्बत तो तूने भी की होगी
चल अब आ भी जा
ऐसे न सत्ता
मोहब्बत का इज़हार कर भी जा
ऐसे न मुझसे तू अपनी कहानी छुपा

My most disturbing dream

The Skeptic's Kaddish 🇮🇱

I’ve had a recurring dream, in which Papa somehow comes back to life some months after dying, only to die again permanently several months later. For some unclear reason, his temporary resurrection is not made public to everyone; and we are all aware and certain that it is, indeed, temporary. The details are very hazy to me, but my dream-self experiences this scenario as having been true. In other words, my dream-self perceives this as an actual memory, rather than as a fantasy.

In this dream, I try to explain to Papa and to myself why I am continuing to mourn him during that interim period between his two deaths. In other words, why did I continue reciting kaddish during the traditional Jewishyear of mourning that began with his original death, and why did I continue writing every week about my mourning, while knowing that he wasn’t really…

Worlds Without End

Mitch Teemley

To God be the Glory

There are many reasons to love this verse. But one in particular excites me: Because the original Greek phrase “eon of the eons” means endless time, it’s usually translated “forever and ever.” But since eon also means “world,” the phrase means endless worlds, as well–literally both at once.

There’s only one modern term that means both ages and worlds: space-time. It was invented when quantum physicists discovered that time and space were a single thing. In other words: Without space, there’s no time, and without time, there’s no space. The Big Bang theory says space-time had a beginning (so does the Bible). And before that? Many think a different space-time existed. And after this one? The Apostle Peter and the book of Revelation say there’ll be “a new heavens and a new earth.” Another Bang? Maybe. And what about the theory of multiverses? Past, present, future–they’re all the same to…

The History of the Celebration of Christmas in Europe

Catholicism Pure & Simple

When we have the media telling us that Christmas is actually a pagan ceremony – it is really just the Puritan view of Christmas presented in the ‘new Puritan’ way. Below is a summary of Father Weiser’s brief history of the festival of Christmas, as set out in his book, “A Handbook of Christian Feasts and Customs” (1) – a discursive study of Christmas from the perspective of 1952.

He noted that, in the Roman Empire it was a general custom to celebrate the birthdays of rulers, with no necessary correlation between the date of the celebration and the date of the actual birth- the birthdate of Plato for example was celebrated on the feast day of the god Apollo.

The early Christians celebrated the birth of Christ, in most cases on the feast of Epiphany (January 6), which is one of the oldest feasts. Father Weiser says: “Soon after…

Wisdom Of Writers: The Tough Advice

Writing about...Writing

Anais Nin teaches us a tough lesson about what it means to be a writer. With this vision in mind, numbers don’t matter, nor do the readers. All that matters is how you feel when you write.

Although I mostly agree, there are areas where emotions cannot be omnipresent (and maybe they shouldn’t). What do you think?

How to Describe Flavours in Latin?

Foundation Operation X for languages, cultures and perspectives

Written by Dyami Millarson

Ever wondered how to express flavours in Classical Latin? If you wish to describe your culinary experiences in Latin, it is definitely relevant to wonder about this.

Food is timeless; a lot has changed in this world since ancient times, but we still need to eat and drink like our ancestors, so it is definitely interesting to think about describing flavours and tastes in ancient languages like Latin.

In this light, I believe that talking about food flavours is essential to the revival of Latin. Talking about food flavours connects us with the Latin speakers and writers of yore.

Here are some adjectives used to describe flavours and tastes in Latin:

  • Bonus, good.
  • Malus, bad.
  • Suāvis, sweet, delicious.
  • Dulcis, sweet.
  • Ācer, bitter, sour.
  • Acerbus, bitter, sour.
  • Melliculus, honeysweet.
  • Dēliciōsus, delicious

The life of universe

Sharing thoughts & Daily discoveries journal

What is universe?
What are parts of the universe?
As long as there is universe, parts of the universe are there existing forever..
Shall they be in flesh
Shall they be in spirits
Shall they are the particles
Shall they are the radiations
They will transform the appearances, but in any forms they will exist somewhere some forms…
The strength of binding will make the miracles of encounters
What you can’t have or near or see
You can still feel or think or having in mind…
When there is time you think it’s darkest and coldest…be greater than your circumstances, be your own light to brighten your way back..
God trains the hardest lessons to the most outstanding child..
Clear the quest! Because God gifted you with the quality to clear this already.
Go beyond the current cloudy curtain, then you will see yourself with more energy with an unbelievable…

The Most Forged Artist in America


I’ll admit to having always had a bit of a fascination with forgeries. I’ve felt the same way about impersonators, too, and I know my thinking is quite naive here, but even as a child I wondered about “Elvis impersonators” — the question being, “If they sound like Elvis, why aren’t they famous in their own right?”

And so it is with art forgers. If they have the talent to paint like an old master or a famous artist from another school, why are they forging art? Why aren’t they painting their own works?  Again, I suppose the question is somewhat naive, and maybe it goes to show that talent alone doesn’t account for success or fame.

Over the last few weeks, as you know, I’ve been studying tonalism and learning about the artists who were a part of this beautiful movement in American landscape art. I’ve fallen…
