The Sweet Man – Everyday beautiful people 86

“Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

“Except you open your eyes and explore the corners around you, you will walk past every beautiful thing on your path, failing to see the Orchids hidden among the Roses.” Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

In my wandering through some backstreets of Deira over the weekend, I stumbled upon the sweet shop and like a sugar ant I was drawn in 🙂

The shop owner was quite gracious as I took photos and had a brief chat with him. He’s from Bangladesh and has been living in Dubai for 22 years. He also has sweet tooth.

When I asked him how much of the sweets he eats in a day, he shook his head from side to side and said not so much again, because he can’t afford to lick all his profits. That gave me a good chuckle.

Jacqueline writes from her heart on passion, pain, suffering, loss and LIFE. I have been incredibly moved by her poetry and I know I will return to “Out of the Silent Breath” again and again.

Passage To Where?…Mundane Monday

Mundane Monday Challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.

We came across this passage during our weekend meandering and I would have loved a little more wandering, but my dear Himself reminds me that I am not Hercules Poirot nor Christopher Columbus and I partially satisfied my curiousity by taking a photo from the entrance.

I still can’t help wondering what’s behind those walls. I think my interest is stoked by the lamps that light up the passage since it was getting dark 😉

Do you ever get seized with curiousity that you need all your common sense to squelch?

Out of the silent breath

Enchant me with your expressive eyes, that crinkles in laughter as you speak

that I may find myself ever caught between

the reflections of your pupils and there shall I remain.
