I hope you enjoyed your New Year’s Eve. Mine was bad. I spent it with strangers listening to music I don’t enjoy. What made it even worse is that I had a 3-day pass to either Dubai or Lebanon. I chose not to go.
You see, part of life is about memories. I try to collect good ones. This time, I collected a bad one by staying in Baghdad.
However, from Iraq-American politics, to cultural differences, to Assyrianism, to reading, to travel, to beauty, and with some humor, and a few vodka drinks between T-walls, I was able to capture 2016 in 36 blogs.
I may not be in the public eye, but you and I are 24/7 in the social eye. We have a social self. It is a live document updated with every facebook, twitter, and blog posts.
I am writing about now, which is soon to be the past. I am not going to be able to literally relive these experiences. My memory will decline as time passes. With blogging at least, I will be able to see myself in lost memories. They are the souvenirs from my earlier self.
I hope you enjoy some of the posts.
