Moleskine Diary pages Oct 2011

The bird calls out what sounds like "Where's my sister?" in Arabic. It does it persistently , in a sad, plaintive manner that gave me the creeps. On the walk back from school in Baghdad, I'd hear a whole flock of them asking " Where's my sister?". It sounded so sad. In my world birds have insight and a sacred knowledge that we humans are not privy to.

  1. I love this!!! The birds in my world are a bit like that too. It's so interesting that they sound as though they are speaking when you listen in Arabic.
