No. 0989 A Beauty that Doesn't even Recognize Itself

Egypt has beauty that doesn't realize its own beauty. Sometimes the harsh sounds and the startling images blind us to the beauty right before our eyes. Beauty that lies in every step, in every gentle rosy sunset, in every silently whispered prayer, in every aspiration and dream kept chained inside. Loveliness moving in and out of the cascade of colors and onslaught of imagery: Glimpses of tenderness. Kind words. Splashes of color. Lyrical language. Sweetly sung songs.
Of these, the most beautiful is that which is silently unaware of its own fairness.
