Colours of Damascus

Old Damascus has been a source of inspiration to many Syrian artists.

    How childish some are, Like you
    in your blog you never write,and if you do it is a copy ,but may be you havenot seen a book yet, no you did once the pengiun it is like Wahoo idea photos only and some miss spelled words .
    You said “I picked this poem from one of my favorite books “The Penguin Book of English Verse” Wish you'll like it :)
    You don’t pick a poem, you chose a poem from a book, and don’t ever refer to a poem as “IT” you say, wish for you to enjoy the poem, or hope you will appreciate the poem I have chosen for you.
    And it takes, a complete stranger to complete something you should have done, the least is introduce the poet and the period, or maybe it was not mentioned in your penguin compendium .
    I don’t know your English level, if you are planning to continue presenting works of English you should seriously work hard, but you like the majority of Syrians your English is poor.You are good at at shawerma photos or Toilets for the public ,and you named it "nature call " grow up Gholia

  • You can refer to a poem as "it" and you can say "pick a poem".

    Indeed, how childish some are!

  • Great post Ghalia. I love the vivid colors of the paintings.

    To English Teacher\Anthony Chamas(I presume both names belong to the same person):
    I must say that you, unlike Syrians, have no manners. Nobody asked for your worthless opinions on Ghalia’s blog. You obviously are a sad old loon with lots of time on your hands to waste. I suggest that YOU grow up and go find yourself a more useful pastime than waste other people’s time with your mad ravings.

  • Antony Chamas for: d.n. your assumptions are correct, but you are confused in assuming the art of a childish support ,run to help your play mate better than teach her some creativety ,you think you know but scribble better English , than Gohlia,your guess is correct I am a sad old loony (not loon as in a diving board wrongly said )I have lots of time to live ,I am growing up not trying like you and your play mate child ,I better use my time with others as you suggested,I will it would be more interesting .the word you mean to say correctly is ( ravaging not raving as in enthusiastic) even you need to work on your English .
    Your friend Gohlia blog is boring and childish ,more or less like you d.n.

  • wow this English teacher character has some serious issues. Don't you have anything better to do than to criticize??
    First of al Ghalia speaks two languages, more than 90% of the ppl out there. Not everyone is supposed to have your superior skills. Second, if you're so strong on spelling than why don't you spell her name right, it's Ghalia and Gholia.

    Anyway, Ghalia, those paintings are wonderful, defenetly a good buy next to my argileh :P

  • Dear English Teacher, I think I know who you really are, especially my state counter shows from where you come!!!!!!! Anyway, this is my personal Blog, and I’ll write whatever I like and want. And if you don’t like that, then that’s your problem. I am not interested in knowing your irrelevant thoughts… Using two names, “Anthony Chamas” and “English teacher”, as if they are two persons confirms that you suffer from a kind of schizophrenia, and this might be the excuse for your silly argument! If you really wanted to advice me it wouldn’t be that way. You are no more than an evil instigator!

  • Anthony Chamas ,
    Finally you come up, with your own defense of a child and a demonstration of knowledge, how long did it take you to prepare? With your penguin book, it must have been easy.
    You are absolutely right!!! You know who I am, in fact you said it the Evil Instigator.
    As for your Stat Counter not state counter,I am taping on it and you need to resize your page to give to those still running 800X600 screen resolution ,like in the case of your friend d.n.,do you wish me to give your stats module of your settings and craft up for the numbers of visitors by location and type of browsers, and how long they stay !!!!
    When was the last time you checked your settings!!!!Did you save changes and put to apply? Prior going out of the program, when you changed your template how many settings you had before the final change and why you de Blog, is your tacodometer meter, running correct / or keeps setting back!!1 am not the only one , but many others are tuned on your Blog ,and witness the many hesitations you do by changing last minute prior Bloging ,grow up Gohlia . Get a penguin teach your self English.

  • Chamas, when you open this window (for the hundredth time)and start to proudly read through your previous comments; and before you decide to waste your time and ours with some more masterpieces of nonsense, give a quick think about how silly and stupid you look in the eyes of everybody who reads this blog.

    Ghalia, While I appreciate your preference to keep all comments, no matter how critical they were, I think that rudeness should not be tolerated. I suggest you delete all this guy's previous and future rubbish... err... comments.

  • good idea Ayman, yislam timmak

  • Ayman,of all the others, you seem to be a levelheaded man, why Gohlia has to endure, and you as a cult go on unequabilily defending her ,now I will disappear for good from Gohlias’ Blog, you and many others wouldn’t know if it was voluntary, or it was Gohlias’ good sense to delete me.
    Ayman, your logic is convincing, yes I may have been over board ,As I assure you I will abide by your suggestion to drop from the screen , I assure you my quest was to portray my intolerance of insufficiency, and substandard .
    But you are right I did waste yours as much others time, I was not enjoying it nor gloating. But I wanted to instigate a change.
    Gohlia must be a hill of friend for you all, and in particular you.
    Over and out. PS.my real name is Anthony Chamas ,I use to teach English ,I am a Cyber Media Moniter&Cunsultant.You have a balanced and vived Blogs ,linckes of Syrian Blogers conect only to your 10th blog ,not lincked to your home Blog,it dose not show your updates
