my tears will find their way to the sea..The sea is the sea,it cannot extinguish a blaze

3 years ago I wrote this,here in Dubai about my tears finding their way to the sea ..they were so many then..due..to a rich and fertile conversation ..Zeinab Assaf writes in Prayer for the Absent..
........Like happiness, our eyes are stolen.........some of us play up the charms and cast away sorrow with colours..........She put her hands together so the stars wouldn’t fall as warts onto her fingers .........I will tell you about the one who believed that happiness will sneak in through an abandoned window.She loved him and he was a believer Before he departed she gave him a heart and a piece of paper:He threw the heart away and put the paper in his pocket. She was about to board a train as she was waving to the void and gathering all her senses How is it the river of her anguish did not explode before him? But, when alone with herself, it gushed forth?....she who cried for words he did not utter nor even hide...... She believed his wandering letters......Now she cannot return to her human clay
The sea is the sea,it cannot extinguish a blaze
All this water and it cannot extinguish a blaze
she blew her tears into balloons so he could play, clouds falling over his hair, nose and eyelashes But he too did not notice!
DIFF festival starts tommorow and some wonder Why do we cry at the movies?
Maybe it is the movie or the psychological baggage we brought in with us. Or is it empathy or you-are-so-busted guilt? Maybe, genetics or cultural conditioning. Researching the psychophysiology of crying in the early 1980s, biochemist William Frey subjected almost 150 people to various tearjerkers. In Crying: The Mystery of Tears, Frey and co-author Muriel Langseth concluded that boys and girls do equal amounts of crying until puberty.
But later, women cry more than men — four times as much, he found, and usually between 7 and 10 at night. He also discovered that crying releases internal toxins, a sort of purgative action. What makes them cry, Frey believes, is empathy. But Tom Lutz, a sociologist and author of Crying: The Natural and Cultural History of Tears, says, is a combination of conflicted emotions.
We strum a mental guitar chord that combines positive, major feelings with sadder, minor tones.But whatever we are doing, we certainly are forging a personal bond with a particular movie that we’ll never lose. Most men -except my closest friends!- don’t cry at movies.my Closest friends do!! that is why they are my closest friends ...The sea is the sea,it cannot extinguish a blaze All this water and it cannot extinguish a blaze.. she blew her tears into balloons so.. they could play
