#146 Yama Part 21

Yama and mom had a very special relationship. They were best friends and had this deep bond like no other. My mom will never understand why Yama had such a sad fate. Yama helped her with everything...like I mentioned before...even going to the gynecologist Yama consoled my mom about everything..even when he moved out...he stayed…

#140 Yama Part 15

My mom got pregnant with Yama at sixteen years old but she was married at the age of fourteen. In Afghanistan, it is common to get married very young. She went into labor at 6am and gave birth to Yama at 7pm. He was 9lbs...a big baby and mom was tiny. Delivering Yama was very…

A couple weeks before Yama's life ended...he did some strange things. Yama decided to visit all of his loved ones...even family that he rarely spoke to. He visited his best friend and his god son out of nowhere. He just knocked on their door and said I just wanted to come by and say hello.…

#118 old friends

#11 Your Name

I re-watched YOUR NAME by Makoto Shinkai for the fourth time and it captured my heart just like it did the first time in the big screen. I am not a big anime fan but I have a few favorites. This film is filled with heart and timeless spirit about love and the beauty of…

Today, I thought about deleting my blog. First, I thought about how no one will even be reading this and what’s the point of just putting myself out there if no one is reading. Second, I thought about all the people I don’t want to read my blog or see my films. My family. My…
