Searching for the Balance
What gives you the most joy in your everyday life?
When I feel comfort, that's my best thing. Maybe comfort after a good shooting day, or it could be a good chat with family or friends. Also when I see someone smiling at me, or speaking from the heart.
When you're walking down the street and you see people smiling at you, does that brighten your day? I mean when you see just like the basic human interaction like giving someone a smile.
Smiling is a natural humanitarian act that cheers you up and spreads positive vibes among people around you. A smile is both; means and purpose.
When you think about music, what's going through your mind?
Music for me is an outlet of expression. There is this singer in Egypt who has been my favorite singer for almost 30 years now. He is living in my head all the time; like the soundtrack of my life.
Do you write songs?
Yeah. But not in the marketing sense!
That's ok! Why do you write music?
I believe that maybe I'll be a writer one day. I have a lot of stuff by the way. And I hope that one day I will show them to someone.
How do you grow as an individual, from writing music, from listening to music. From having it in the rhythm of your life and what you do every day. How does the music influence you?
It makes my imagination work. Hmmmm....it’s my constant companion whenever I’m alone
How do you balance tradition and newness. Like the new things in life and the traditions. How do you find that balance?
I find myself a balanced person. I see myself having balance in life and work.Work doesn't take me away from a lot of things. And it's rare by the way, nowadays to have balance in your life. Balance is about appreciating all of life's moments.
