All About Mihran

Original posting date: August 17, 2014.

Thank you, Mih–for your kindness, your patience, your friendship–thank you!

 
 

I have blogged for years now. But I never met a man as gentle and kind as Mihran Kalaydjian. Because aside from the fact that he had been so generous reblogging my posts, there was this one very warm conversation I had with him.

When I posted my condolences to our dear Ajaytao, I made Mihran cry that day. Although I was worried if I made him cry because I wrote bad; or I wrote something for Oscar’s (coz I do have the tendency for drama), but I was really touched with his honest sentiment. Coz Mihran never met Ajay, yet he shed a tear for him. He even asked me “Why am I crying, Aina?” I told him, “It’s because Mihran, you’re a gentleman with a very big heart and beautiful soul.” And so we were both crying in the end.

And I mean those words up to this very minute that I am writing this post. I could go on forever enlisting all the great things I appreciate in Mihran. So, I narrow it down to ten, and they’re below:

ALL ABOUT MIHRAN

1. “I’M A SUCCESS TODAY BECAUSE I HAD A FRIEND WHO BELIEVED IN ME AND I DIDN’T HAVE THE HEART TO LET HIM DOWN,” Mihran Kalaydjian.

2. He reblogs everyday, and in his most sincerest ways.

3. He visits, reads, likes and comments in our posts.

4. He has a picture of his brother (with his wife and beautiful kids) in his Awards and Accomplishments Page.

5. He writes free of ambiguity.

6. He uses simple words in straightforward ways.

7. He bridges bloggers–and

8. He is a live conduit of goodwill and friendship.

9. He has a heart as big as the world.

10. He has a soul as enormous as the universe.

I guess, what I am trying to say:
Mih, thank you for coming our ways! Thank you for the kindness you do everyday! Thank you for being a true gentleman in every way! You earned not only our respect, but our hearts as well. May all the blessing of Heaven and Earth be upon you, my friend! A million thanks to you kind thing!

P.S. Please own the message of the song below. It’s for you. I thank you with all my heart and soul!

Grease and Bliss

11




One of Hollywood’s legacies is the making of musical films that are poignant-to-the bones, and lunatic enough to turn the world upside-down, just like the film, Grease of Olivia Newton John and John Travolta.

A 1978, musical romantic comedy, it’s about two college students, Danny Zuko (Travolta) and Sandy Olsson (John) who meet in the beach, and fall in love in the summer of 1958. A certified blockbuster that hits a staggering $394,955,690 (Wiki), Grease is a true oldie-but-goody. From the plot, the songs, and the lyrics of the songs, and the joy that the film and its music brings–I really can’t resist watching it over-and-over again.

However, among all, what I truly love the most, are the real-life characters of the two protagonists, John and Olivia.  As I wish to have that same zest for life that they both carry.


Because eleven days from now, I am turning forty-two. Oh yes, I am aging. But modesty aside, I think I am aging gracefully though. And I wish to keep this zeal in my heart forever. Coz although there are moments, I somehow get intimidated by fine lines starting to appear on my face. But when I am in front the mirror: I never ask “Who is the fairest of them all?” Rather, if I see one, two, three or more, I say: “Heck! I will never worry about you! Life is too short, and it’s ridiculous to spend my time worrying about non-sense wrinkles, nor cruel arthritis,” coz I am even ready for that as well. I rather write and blog, or do any other thing that makes me happy than worry about vanity.

For though aging is inevitable; it’s about fully embracing its ironies. And what should come with the acceptance, is the confidence; never allowing wrinkles define, nor modify my definition of happiness, neither how I see myself and everyone around me. And this is exactly what I like in John and Olivia.

John apparently, is one of Oprah Winfrey’s best friends, and her favorite guest co-host as well. That although I don’t believe in starstruck, but the latter seems to have a charisma, and a charisma discerning power: Coz Ms. O sees the goodness in John. He’s such a darling really, that he knows how to tickle, not one’s fancy, but the hearts of many. For John still dances with fans (of all ages), as if he’s still in a “Grease” mode. Though he doesn’t groove while walking anymore, he remains soft-spoken, sweet and kind-hearted, and so debonair!

And Olivia? Oh, she is beautiful! She remains candid and a sweetheart on and out of stage. I am even tempted to say immortal, but that’s a lie. Rather, she is ever graceful–that’s one thing sure; and, that she is aging gracefully too.

Another bliss that is noteworthy about, and between them two, is their ageless friendship that continues to thrive all these years, and even the ones they maintain with their co-stars in Grease—-amazing! Three videos are up, with my fervent hope it goes the same for everybody.

Many thanks! Be happy! To GOD be always all…………………………the glory!

I Love You All the Way

9

With the entirety of my being:
from the innermost core of my heart;
to the very depth of my soul;
amidst dire barricades,
despite grand walls,
inspite of any given facts,
regardless of screaming differences,
notwithstanding what will come along,
be in hell or in high waters,
I love you.
I will always love you,
always, always will. . .

All the way.

I love You All the Way

Sometime and Somewhere

0

Sometime and somewhere
They will meet again,
In a time and place
Where emotions will flow freely,
As three simple words
That two aching hearts long wish to utter
Can at last be spoken.

Sometime and somewhere
They will meet again,
In a time and place
Where two longing hands
Can finally hold each other
As the ticking of the clock
Go silent.

Sometime and somewhere,
They will meet again,
In a time and place
Where four eyes will finally meet
And see the skies,
And they will know:
That’s all that matters.

Still Falling

Love and relationship

Are two different things.

Ours? Yes, we’ve love.

Actually, we’ve love so deeply

That we forgot

To commit ourselves faithfully

To each other.

But relationship?

Forgive me,

It’s questionable.

Hampered by our past,

We both refused

To commit

To our love.

And that is

The saddest part of it.

You didn’t wrong me,

And I didn’t wrong you.

But we wronged our love.

Yes,

It’s all water under the bridge.

Yes,

We did manage to get by.

Yes,

We even managed

To smile,

To laugh with others

As we head apart.

But every now and then,

A voice inside

Keeps confronting me:

“How could you?”

Because even now

We keep saying our love is gone,

Tears still fall

When I think of you.

Even Now
