سلام دوست عزیز,این لیکنها جالب,تاریخی,تاسف آور و..... ,
Hi Ennas, I think it's wonderful that you are working as an interpreter! What does the company do? I do hope your employers are nice to you.
I am doing okay. I got a job teaching at a small Catholic college in Los Angeles. I'm teaching courses in literary theory and international fiction.
I've written a short story/memoir/essay about my father and the Sichuan earthquake. Would you like to read it? Ben
Hi Ennas, I'm sorry I haven't written in awhile. How are you doing? Things are okay here-- I just got back from watching a Mexican film called "Under the Same Moon" which is about illegal immigration to the US. I hope alot of people see it, because there is so much anti-immigrant sentiment in the US these days...I also recently watched a film called "The Band's Visit" about an Egyptian band in Israel-- very funny and heartwarming. I really love foreign films!...And how is life with you? Ben
Hello Ennas, Thank you for your note. This is, unfortunately, a sad time for me and my family-- my father passed away on January 5th (the day before my birthday). If you wish to read about him, you may go to the website parkerpofeihuang.blogspot.com He was much beloved....He was a gentle man and a fine poet who loved books and all the world's peoples...Ben
Hi Ennas, Happy New Year to you! Are you on vacation now?...I hope you are well. I thought of you today while reading an article about the website www.goodreads.com
It said that it was very popular among Iranian youth...Do you belong to it?...There's also a cartoon movie about an Iranian girl which was made in France...Are you familiar with it? Have you ever had the chance to travel abroad?
Hi Ennas, I hope you are well! Are you near the end of your semester?...I'm okay...I'm busy writing and looking for a job and helping my mom care for my 94 year old father. Do you live in a dormitory or with your parents? What do you do when you're not studying? Ben
Hi Ennas, Your English is so good I am surprised to find out that your major is French! I'm afraid I don't know any Farsi, although I have heard it spoken-- L.A. has a large Iranian population. Are you originally from Tehran? I have a friend who taught in Shiraz many years ago-- probably before you were born!
Thank-you Ennas! I look forward to learning from you. As today's headlines demonstrate, American-Iranian relations are not their best these days-- I hope that by engaging in dialog we might be able to counter some of the folly of our
politicians and leaders.
