Being Sary Al-Assad

"Please come closer... have a seat... and enjoy seeing the world through my eyes..."

I've always thought of a blog space to be some kind of a portal into the mind of its writer... whatever was his ideology, whatever were his hobbies, and no matter how moderate or extreme was his way of thinking... you could just sit in front of your computer... sip slowly from a warm cup of coffee... and indulge into the mind of your host as you read through his blog...!!

This may sound familiar to those who watched the movie "Being John Malkovich"... with the little difference that, in the movie, you actually enter a portal on the 7 1/2 floor of a building, and end up in the consciousness of John Malkovich watching what he does in his life through his eyes for 15 minutes, then you get dropped out of his mind. However, in the case of my blog, the portal is your monitor, and you can stay for as long as you like. Very generous of me, ha!

So... to make a long story short, what I mean to do with my blog (MY BLOG...MY BLOG...M-I-N-E!!) is to jot down in it all my special moments, happy and sad occasions, my opinion on any of the current affairs or old issues without restricting myself to a field of politics,sports,technology or anything else... whatever I see suitable for publishing, will be published.

I'm not an expert in any of the above issues, but I believe that if everyone expressed his points of view freely (but in a RESPONSIBLE way), we would be able to reach better understanding between individuals... groups of people... and -hopefully- one day, different cultures.

What I won't publish??
I'm not a big fan of copy-and-paste methods... I don't like copying forwards I receive in my mail to my blog... I will never do that unless this thing is VERY relevant and REALLY serves my issue.
I also refuse publishing any thing (text or images) that I consider to be immoral, or that would insult the beliefs of other people. However, I'll use my right for constructive criticism of any issue or person.

I'll try to keep my posts funny but not farce, serious but not dull.

Human beings are creatures that can't live alone.... and to make sure that I'm not writing this blog to myself, please be kind to leave a small comment on any post you find worth commenting on... make me feel IMPORTANT!!!

Who I am... What I do... What I like/dislike... How I think... those questions are to be answered as you read through future posts in the soap-opera of my life...

Thanks a lot, bookmark this page, and -kindly- visit my mind soon...

your host,

Hala D. يقول...

Sary i really liked your blog .. it's really great !

muneeb arrabi يقول...

I liked what you wrote sary. but I don't ... could you write some shorter blogs every now and then. These shorter blogs will be nice in case you're reading the blogs 4am in the morning and don't like to disappoint your friend by not reading his blogs.

one more point... the topics till now are really wonderful.

Could you give a blog about recent books you read that are interesting.

oooohhhh... am I too demanding, for a moment i thought this is my blog.

sorry man.. take care my friend. and amer abbas rooh kub halak.... just kiddin'g i miss you.
