Holiday Updates

So Ozzy turned four!!!! And the reason he has 5 candles is because Lifa reckons you’re supposed to put the age +1 for the next year ?? Crazy man. I’m pretty sure that’s wrong. So much so that I’m putting it on the blog!! Aha. I love you guys. Is it also OK if I say Aki is due soon?! Forgive me but I cannot wait to see my niece! Auntie Anisa is waiting. Are you going to name her Anisa? Oh man, you are, aren’t you? :P 15590631_10208368554160604_7537979040880994346_n
Remember Yuko and her family? She’s the lovely Japanese lady who was constantly cooking for me. Well, in less than a week, she and her family will be visiting. Yes, all the way from JAPON! Can you believe it? I sure can’t! God, I love humanity. What a blessing. I hope we can be good hosts and show them everything. I’m also excited for YOU to enjoy along with me.

What else?
I watched Paterson the movie. And I watched it only because of its female lead: Golshifteh Farahani. You guessed it, she’s a Persian lady and one heck of an actress, I believe. Unfortunately, the movie was hella boring (to put politely). It did however, inspire me to restart writing poetry.

I was telling a friend about the age difference
Between me and my lover
Feeling insecure about
Well
Basically being old
When I saw a young girl scurry past
She was one maybe two years old
And we were wearing the exact same jelly shoes

I had been asking my mother to accompany me to The Berry Shop for quite some time
When today of all the days she suggested it herself
It was cold and rainy and my outsides were freezing
But still we sat and ate ice-cream
and we talked
or rather she talked and I listened
and slowly slowly
my insides were warming.

Last but not least, my latest Savvy Tokyo piece on Japanese Christmas Cake HERE.

  1. Oz has grown so quickly! That’s the greatest picture of him! In our family, we always said, “and one for good luck”, as far as an extra candle goes — I guess that equates the same! I always love your poetry, Anisa. In the Jewish tradition, we often honor the memory of someone who has passed on by naming a child after that person, but not with the same name; only with the first letter of that person’s name. One more thing: You are NOT old!!!

      1. Oh, I see now. That’s not a great stretch of years between you, now, either. Once you’ve gone past the early years, where such things really do matter, in adulthood, as you both are, it evens out more, anyways. I can’t believe how incredibly busy you are! Have a great New Year, with all great things ahead, for you, your family, and Soroosh.
