It Will Become a New Again, For Sure: Happy New Year!


I am still challenged with the Christmas holidays, work, and doing my best as a grandpa and a helpful companion to the Iranian freedom seekers. So I didn’t want to share any posts this weekend. Well, I wanted to give myself a break. It’s nice to sit in front of the computer and do something other than having to write. But I did think I could congratulate my friends on the New Year with a simple and heartfelt wish, with some words and some illustrations which may say more than the words.

The time runs so fast that I wonder where it has gone. Some say that our beloved Earth has increased her speed; she might get rid of us as soon as possible! However, for my peace of mind, I keep my memories as they are the only things that will remain. And the only wish I’d have (Okay, maybe two or three!?) is peace not just for the whole world but also in everyone’s hearts, and most of all for the young women and men in Iran to overcome that horrible and inhuman regime.

I started as an amateur on the path of writing, but unfortunately, it was too late, as I am, right now, pretty much at the end of my own way. It could be nice if it had happened some decades ago; nevertheless, with your kindness, I enjoy sharing my littleness, and I learn a lot: one can never stop learning! Thank you and gratitude.

Anyway, let’s begin this new year with ambitions towards a peaceful and sensual world. As the Germans say: Es kann nur Besser werden!

Honestly, I had never expected this John Lennon song to remain so current. May the war be over soon. ๐ŸคžโœŒ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ•Š๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒน

  1. Well, I, for one, enjoy your littleness, greatly! Thank you my dear friend for sharing all that you’ve shared this year on your blog. The words, music, theatre, film, memoir, poetry, and on it goes not forgetting Jung, Rumi, Woodman, Rilke to name but a few of the gems you’ve gifted us. Happy New Year to you dear Aladin! Be loved. Be happy. Be at peace. Love and light, Deborah.

    • Haleluya! My faithful angel, blood in my vein, and air in my lungs. Your words and the loving company are like the wind in my sails. Without them, I am a moveless object. Thank you wholeheartedly; I wish you and all your loved ones the best in this world. See you and feel you in the next year soon. Love and love to you. ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿฅฐ

  2. Happy New Year Aladin, wishing you and yours a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2023. We are so blessed with what we have especially when we see and hear what some of our fellow human beings are going through, it is so sad that we have such a beautiful world and yet there isn’t any beauty in some peoples hearts. Here’s to a year where kindness and love may prevail ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’—

    I love the honesty and humility of your posts and particularly this comment, Aladin. I love the line that you are “sharing your littleness” since that seems like the best thing any of us can do. It’s certainly the best I can do–and I also feel I started too late and haven’t done enough and have too many things pulling me here and there. I honor the generous contribution you make on behalf of Jungians, students of myth, and your grandchildren. Thank you, dear friend. I wish you a peaceful New Year (. So far, things are not going well in my country as bratty children try to take over the congress instead of govern. It would be lovely to give them a class about the Shadow,)

    • It would be an excellent tip, my lovely, wise friend. Thank you wholeheartedly for your humbleness despite your knowledge. I think it could help a lot, as Socrates said: the knowing begins with the acknowledgement of accepting not knowing. Peace and love.


  4. It’s never too late to share what you’ve got with world. I appreciate your concern with what is going on in Iran ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท and we pray for peace and safety ๐Ÿ™. Hope you’ve had a wonderful New year experience
