مرگ چون پرواز است

Death is to fly ...

 

A friend passed away last night...

 

Wish her be in heavens now, in paradise. She was in a hell till last night, which at last she flied away...

 

Listen William Bradbury's improvisation on Mandoline for this photo here.

 

و چه دردناك است، مرگ در تنهايي. مرگ در بيكسي. مرگ در تاريكي و غربت

 

و چه دردناكتر است ديدن مرگ دوستان. دوستاني كه دوستشان داشتي، و ديگر نيستند تا بتواني با صداي بلند بگويي احساست را

 

كاشكي با مرگ آسوده شده باشد. كاشكي از اين جهنم آزاد شده باشد. كاشكي دوستاني صدهابار بهتر از ما نصيبش شود. كاشكي از تنهايي درآيد. كاشكي همدمي پيدا كند. كاشكي ...

 

كاشكي قيمت انفاس بدانندي خلق

 

كاشكي بعد از مرگ دوستان به ياد اين بيت نيفتيم كه:

چو بر گورم بخواهي بوسه دادن

خودم را بوسه ده كه اكنون همانيم

 

.

.

.

 

خنك آن قماربازي كه بباخت هر چه بودش

بنماند هيچش الا هوس قمار ديگر

This window is a praying room of a historical house which Ayatollah Taleghani born and grew in.

It's located in a village near Taleghan.

 

He was considered a moderate in his views: he declared the headscarf as not being a mandatory part of hijab, among other opinions. (From WikiPedia)

 

The geotagged place is not accurate. I can't find exact location of the village. But sure it's in a circle with about 1 kilometer diameter, centered at the point I have geotagged.

    Hamed-
    I was very moved by this photo and the accompanying text. The image and words speak to all of us, we share your sadness. I am a composer doing a series of improvisations on the mandolin and I was inspired to create a piece based on your photo. I have included the photo along with the music on my website (in the Improvisations section); I hope you get a chance to listen to the music. Thank you for your beautiful work.
    All the best, Bill

    @wcbii: William, I watched your website. Your works are great!
    And I heard your beautiful composition here, and read your warm and kind comment below it.
    All you done is my pleasure, and I am appreciated that this photo was helpful for you to make such a relaxing moment!

    Wonderful piece of music, a very fitting tribute to the beautiful image; congratulations to BOTH of you --Hamed & Bill; Bill & Hamed:
    great fusion of sight(s) and sounds.
  • William Bradbury 7y

    Thanks, Hamed (and Nima) for your kind words. I hope to "collaborate" with you again soon!
  • Nima Shafaieh 7y

    Hamed has the eye, Bill. My dad was telling him how important it was and is to have the vision; and in your case, of course, the "ear" and the eye... I wish I could write poetry and I wish I could compose... so much I would have loved to say/express with those two media, but, alas, I can only try --as a "mute" might-- to make the sounds, and form the rhythms, but, only in the visual form; so, it is wonderful to see others who are talented (like Hamed) to do so, and to hear works like yours that accompany by inspiration (and "perspiration" of the 'creative' work; toils and troubles...) I enjoyed Hamed's image, and now it is very nicely coupled with a sound track. It is wonderful. The credit, of course, goes to the two of you :)

    Nicely done. I like the sunlight falling on the door and the faint glow it creates around the door. Sorry about your friend.
