Colors of Afghanistan


Simply awesome phjotography!! ,, ““A landscape might be denuded,
a human settlement abandoned or lost, but always, just beneath the ground lies history of preposterous grandeur . . . They are everywhere, these individuals of undaunted humankind, irrepressibly optimistic and proud.” – The Carpet Wars, Christopher Kremmer.

“A landscape might be denuded,
a human settlement abandoned or lost,
but always, just beneath the ground
lies history of preposterous grandeur.. .
They are everywhere, these individuals

of undaunted humankind,
irrepressibly optimistic and proud.”

Kabul, Afghanistan

“Every street of Kabul is enthralling to the eye
Through the bazaars, caravans of Egypt pass
One could not count the moons that shimmer on her roofs
And the thousand splendid suns that hide behind her walls.”
-Saeb-e-Tabrizik
Translation by Josephine Davis

Kabul, Afghanistan

Kabul, Afghanistan

Kabul, Afghanistan

Kabul, Afghanistan

Kandahar, Afghanistan

If my heart trembles
for Kabul,
it’s for the slow step of summer noons,
siestas in my father’s house which,
heavy with mid-day sleep,
still weighs on my ribs…
It’s for the hawker’s cry
of the vegetable seller doing his rounds,
lost in my neighbors’ troubled dreams,
that my heart’s trembling.

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

      • Yes, we made ours with rum, rum that had been steeped with cinnamon bark. I can’t believe I hadn’t done that before. Completely changed my experience of rum.

        Huzzah!
