getting into it

In the following weeks we struggle with the second chapter doing several re-writes, I’m trying to capture and represent that ancient civilisation about which I know so little. Then suddenly the characters burst into life and they are off and running, with me trying to catch them at times. Meanwhile I think Hamma can hardly believe what he is reading from a Western woman who's only spent about a week in the Middle East.

  1. I am surprised how fast you learn the culture of Medes (Kurds). It is amazing for me and my thinking about the origin of Aryan people from Middle East and Europe to be from the same blood.

    I read when Greek leader from African origin namely Alexander the Great, when he conquered Aryan land of Mesopotamia and Asia. He and his Generals following him wanted to impose Hellenic (Greek) culture on Aryan people there. But Aryan Soldier from Europe in the Alexander the Great army adopted Aryan religion of Mithraism and Zoroastrianism religion faster than the Aryan people from Middle east and Asia accepting African (Greek and others) culture and their religious ideas.
    Indeed, I am not surprised any more to see my co-Author from West to be familiar to our Aryan culture from Middle East and Asia so fast.

    Maybe there are hopes for people from the west to be friend of people from old Aryan land in the Middle East and Asia before the end of the World we know.
