Kashk-E Bademjoon and Split-Pea Soup

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.  My job is particularly annoying me today.  I mean, it's not even what I'm here in LA for.  I'm an artist, for crying out loud.  But here I am, answering phones, making coffee, writing emails for other people, recording company shows on to a DVD only to file them in a "library" in the back simply because my supervisor said so.  Twenty one years of intense musical training, thirteen years of working for the man, eleven years of playing in hotels, dirty bars and clubs where only a few people care to listen, and some odd years of everything else later, I'm still paying my dues.  "Pas chi fekr kardi?", my mom says.  Yest

Inspirations from James Allen

“The world is beautiful because they have lived; without them, laboring humanity would perish” says James Allen, a twentieth century English philosopher, in his first book “ As A Man Thinketh”. And ‘they’ are the artists, those who bring the beauty before our eyes and ears.


As medical doctors are in charge of the physical health of a society, architects and engineers take care of the infrastructure of a city, and farmers prepare our food, artists maintain the wellbeing of the soul of a society. They transform the energy of life into the matter and bring it to our homes, cars, parks, and streets; they dream the unknown, and manifest it in music, painting, writing, sculpting, photography and all the art forms.


Artists define what’s being a human, what humans are capable of. They recreate the nature and the life force. They are at the center of the universe, the most connected with the heart of a society, its people, and its connection to the unknown. They can translate the mystery, and they are always one step ahead of the rest. They are dreamers, and only dreams can come true. Let them dream, lofty dreams, and let them cherish a beautiful vision, so it may be.


“Humanity cannot forget its dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as the realities which shall one day see and know.”  James Allen
