I grew up in a city famous for its grape vines and apple trees. Most of the families had their orchards and most of the families would stay at their orchards in summer because it was cooler. Even when we didn’t have our orchard we would go to our aunts orchard. I can’t believe how much fun we had, climbing trees, playing soccer (of course I was the goalie:D )…


The other thing which was super important about my city was Lake Urmia. The saltiest lake in middle-east. Whatever you did you would float in the water. It had the weirdest smell when you drove by this lake. This lake was home to so much history, with its beautiful islands. So much beauty! Seeing the migratory flamingos was something you didn’t want to miss.

One of the things I hold in my heart is its sunsets. Specially when the sun had this red yellowish color. As an introvert who needed her space (at that time I didn’t know I was an introvert I just know I need to be alone), driving to lake and watch the sunset, was one of the most peaceful places for me. (I also had another peacfeul place in city which I need to write about it in another post). At that time as a teenager, I had a poem about how sunset is related to loss of loved one. If I want to write about sunset now, I will just say it is the most beautiful thing just like sunrise, just like our breath, our love, there is so much beauty in this world even when the humanity keeps disappointing. Sunset and sunrise work together, they are all part of sun’s journey. As it is part of ours. They are gonna happen whether you like it or not, you might as well enjoy it!

(If you have time google Lake Urmia’s sunsets, you will see how beautiful it is and if you were interested read about this salty lake)

As always,
