I would like to start this post with giving my opinion about this activity. Looking through my Google drive photos (yep Android user), I could not but just smile and not any type of smiling. No, it was “good memory” smile when lips are wide and teeth are barely exposed. Even when I come to photos that were taken from rough times, I felt happy and inspired that whatever challenges I am facing or I will be facing in the future, will not stay forever and they will be memories as the old ones. It was not easy for me to decide which photo I am going to choose for this activity since many of the photos were forgotten memories that make me smile every time I look at them. If I put all the ones that made me smile, I would be uploading photos to the blog all night. However, I have chosen four pictures that represent the same kind of situation and it they also have my favourite activity, location, and person. Here are they (pictures are raw.
This is my youngest sibling Abdul-Aziz who loves playing with fire (I know that does not sound safe, but do not worry we are careful). Also, the picture has one of my favourite activities which is going to a desert, making fire, making tea, and making great conversations with people you love. In my town, finding a place like that is very easy because the town is in a desert. The only time I got to do such activity is just in winters since summer is too hot for that. Finding wood to make a fire is very easy because wood is everywhere and already comes in small pieces, so there is no need to chop them off. All we need to do is grab them from the ground then put them together to make a fire, like this.
This might sound strange and might not but I found the tea I make using an actual fire taste way better that the one from using heaters. Maybe the atmosphere has a something to do with it. I mean because there are not any sounds except fire sound and people talking. Another factor could be the view as you can see in the next photos.
I hope I explained enough to make you understand why I have chosen these pictures to be the forgotten sweet memories of mine.
