Memory in the flesh





"Memory in the flesh" is a prize-winning novel, the first to be written by an Algerian woman in Arabic.... The story, spanning more than four decades of Algerian history, from the 1940s to the 1980s, revolves around a love affair between Khaled, the middle-aged militant who turns to painting after losing his left arm in the struggle, and the fiction writer and young daughter of his friend the freedom fighter Si Taher, this story is told through Khaled's voice.


When you read this book , you feel like you've been reading about yourself ..it does not matter where do u come from , where do you belong...you just become unconsciously Constantine...

But you also can find your own cuntry in it ... Maybe even your village ... Or that neighborhood you grow up in as a child ,the one you did not notice before this novel ,that it's still stuck in your memory down to the most basic details ...and you will feel nostalgic ...you will think of your long lost love ..or the love you are still waiting for ...you will dive into words and between the letters of  "Memory in the flesh" you will discover art in the revolution... you will fall in love with a  painting that tells the history of a man ... The man who believes that he was born for a purpose and a great cause ...

This book has fascinated and attracted me ,"Ahlam Mosteghanemi" style and the way she 
painted in my mind the most beautiful picture of oblivion, pain, madness and love made me fall in love with this book ... The book took me to several dimensions where i developped a cruch for   Khalid with all his contradictions, strength and weakness ,  pride and sincerity ...I fell in love with  Ziad with his patriotism and sacrifice .. and of course with "Hayat" and her feminine cruelty .


Ahlem Mosteghanemi always stunned me with how she makes her novels beautiful ,delicious , tense, intrusive and lustful, as Nizar kabani said :" outside the law "

"Memory in the Flesh" at this stage of my life made me think of  my first teenage years when i read "Broken wings" ...it destroyed  every thing in me and rebuilt me again ...Thats what makes it worth reading .

Now i'm reading "Chaos of senses " and i'm already amazed :) feel free to join me and 
enjoy a wonderful and pleasurable read, I'm reading these books in Arabic but if you click on the link it will take you to the english version for those who care enough to look  :) 

That's it for now , I'm hoping this review (if i may call it) made you enxious to read more and give this masterpiece a try and feel the magic.

lucid dream

Hiii every one

It's been a long time and i was working hard so no time for blogs ...but I'm here now and i wanted to talk to you about dreams  , not the kind of dreams we see when we're a sleep , no , not even the ones we see when we're awake staring to the sealing , i'm talking about something else , the kind where it happned , it's real and we feel that  it was sooo goood to be true , those are the dreams i love and i've dicided to share my lucid dream with u ;) enjoy


Was it a good day ? was it a sad day ? i still can't answer the question , all i know is in that day something inside me changed for ever .....the look in my eyes , the smile on my lips everything arouned me is just not the same.

i woke up , his hands around me , the heat coming from his breath touching my neck softly , and i closed my eyes again .....should i wake up !! is this going to end !! but i need his arms i want him to stay like this for ever ..ii don't want this dream to end nor get back to real life ...i know , i know there is no ascape from reality , and i woke up , i can't dream for ever and he can't stay here for ever ....should i ask him to !! Can i ? could he ?

Questions , all these questions driving me mad !! go away !! let me live the moment ....yes i know it's a just a moment , it will pass , and every thing will get back to normal ....He will go back to being someone elses man , he will go back to be free and I , well I'll go back to being me

That's the thing about dreams they don't last for long , sometimes the dream is so perfect , so beautiful you're just afraid to wake up , you want to stay there for ever , you close your eyes so hard and try to go back to sleep , but this , this is not a dream or may be it is and every dream have and end ....this one is no different ...i looked at him while he opned his eyes and smiled , i smiled back but the smile on my lips was not the same , i was saying good by i looked at him i wanted to remember the look in his eyes for ever





The moment passed , was it a good moment ? was it a sad moment ? i don't know , all i know is that moment was mine, he was mine and because of that i'm just not the same ..i woke up ! and now all i have is a memory and even that started to fade away ...

By_by summer and welcom rain !! (fashion)


Girls and boys the sun is in hiding these days so I personally started to pack my sandles ,dresses and sunglasses , soon I’ll be ready to say goodby to my summer closet and welcome the rain , wet hair and cold ,althought that may seem depressing  it can be real fun ,going shopping and all  ..So today i wanted  to talk to you about  Fall/winter fashion (i’m not a fashanista so don’t expect much) I’m going to be relying on my personal  taste and some of fashion reviews I sow on tv .

One of my favorite trends is lether , it’s no secret that lether  became a wide spread wordrobe for the last few winters  and i still think it’s the perfect thing for the grey  cold months , so I’m expecting  it to be part of my closet and yours and I’m not just talkig about bags but also lether shorts ,pants and jakets ..don’t worry I promis it will look luxiurious and stylish  ..you can find leather in Zara  and H&M collections 

Here is some pictures to help you decide :)








Second trend I like to talk about is scarves …if you need an extra wormth  scarves is the coolest accessories, it can be worn with almost every thing from a dress to a t-shirt and it can be perfect to add a little color to your outlift...here is some new ways to tie a scaf :) 


ONe more thing i like to talk about ,boots, whether they're thigh high or above the knees lether or soeude they'll be in stores and i'lll be baying 



That's it i shared my fashion opinion for winter if you have an other thoughts feel free to comment :)



Passion

hii you :)

Today i want to talk to you about my passion writing, see  i've always wanted to be a writer when i grow up,  i've always been good with words and loved to express my self as a romantic type of girl by writing poetry and short stories i loved the fact that words flowed from my pencil to create a tale .At first i only wrote in arabic and only read  to my mother who was always encouraging me, then i started reading some to my friends , i was so happy that most of them thought i have a great gift with words ,then i learned english and i loved it so i tried writing in english , of caurse when i did my writings weren't that good then i said "what the hell , i should never give up on my passion" so i started again , i've learned never to be afraid what poeple think and write freely , i guess what ever your passion is you have to follow it , you never know what may happen maybe one day you'll become something great . 

Now i'm an audio visual designer (i'll get my degree in one year) and i want to say it's not that far from writing but now i can bring my characters and setting to life ,turn them to something i can see and feel . Any way i guess what i'm trying to say is "nothing in the world can be accomplished without passion so never let go of yours and always follow your heart . That being said i like to share this poem with you it's one of my early writings , i hope you like it and i can really use your opinion so you can comment :)


Every time you pass by my side
i feel something i try so hard to hide

I thought i was smart
choking the loud sound of my heart..

Every time you pass by my side
a thounsand thought rush to my mind

"How are you?" you always say..
and i find myself compelled to lie

I never tell you how i feel 
or that my love for you is real

Your my friend and so much more
your the one i'm looking for

So why are you so blind to see 
the influence you leave in me

Every time you pass by my side 


That's it guys i appreciate your feed back ..and i'll publish more in the up coming days in frensh and arabic mean while if you like here's a link to an arabic poem i worte https://www.facebook.com/notes/ikram-koukou/%D8%B9%D8%B5%D8%B1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%A7%D8%AF%D8%A9/10150252713048213  Enjoy  :)

I want to refresh my mind, delete all my problems ,undo all my mistakes and save those amazing moments i lived ..yep that is my new resolution and i attend to achieve it . I know most of people say this to themselves every time something gos wrong and i know every one needs a second chance to put his life in order and focus on what's important , well, i'm one of those people and this is not the beginning of a new life, this is the beginning of a  new chapter in my life and it's already looking good
