And I thought of Mom. I wondered, how did Mom feel all those years in that old-fashioned kitchen, cooking for our big family? Remember how much we ate? We had two small tables filled with food. Remember how big our rice pot was? And she had to pack all for our lunches, including the side dishes she made with whatever she could get from the country side… How did Mom get through it everyday? Since Father was the eldest, there was always a relative or two staying with us. I don’t think Mom could have liked being in the kitchen at all.”
You were caught off guard. You had never thought of Mom as separate from the kitchen. Mom was the kitchen and the kitchen was Mom. You never wondered, did Mom like being in the kitchen?

The mirror is a symbol of water in Iran. Water is bright and reflects light, so it is a sign of light and life.
When I discovered the mirror mosaics, I realized that nothing is done spontaneously; it is all a calculation of geometry and design. If you divide a circle at three points, it will be a triangle. In Islamic design the triangle is the intelligent human being. In Islamic Sufism, the soul is the mirror of the divine.
There is a secret behind every one of my works.

« Ah, che bel sogno una donna con me, ha un buon profumo di caffè
Bevo un caffè per amore, come se fosse un’amore
bevo un caffè con fragore
mi sento un vero signore
bevo un caffè da aviatore che sta ascoltando un motore
bevo un caffè come viene
è un caffè che mi appartienne
E tu si, a chi appartieni tu? »
by Paolo Conte
