Anemoia: Nostalgia For A Time You’ve Never Known

“The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.” –L.P. Hartley

Looking at old photos, it's hard not to feel a kind of wanderlust—a pang of nostalgia for times you've never experienced. The desire to wade into the blurred-edge sepia haze that hangs in the air between people who leer stoically into this dusty and dangerous future, whose battered shoes are anchors locked fast in the fantasy that none of it risks turning out any other way but the way it happened.

Besides I'd to introduce you to an old way of finding water in Iran

A Kariz is one of a series of well-like vertical shafts, connected by gently sloping tunnels. They create a reliable supply of water for human settlements and irrigation in hot, arid and semi-arid climates.
The QANAT technology is known to have been developed by the Persian people sometime in the early 1st millennium BC and spread from there slowly west and eastward.
The value of a QANAT is directly related to the quality, volume and regularity of the water flow. Much of the population of Iran and other arid countries in Asia and North Africa historically depended upon the water from QANAT ; the areas of population corresponded closely to the areas where QANATS are possible. Although a QANAT was expensive to construct, its long-term value to the community, and thereby to the group that invested in building and maintaining it, was substantial.

Autumn Movement - Carl Sandburg

I cried over beautiful things knowing
no beautiful thing lasts.

The field of cornflower yellow is a scarf at the
neck of the copper sunburned woman,
the mother of the year, the taker of seeds.

The northwest wind comes and the yellow is
torn full of holes, new beautiful things
come in the first s p i t of snow on the
northwest wind, and the old things go,
not one lasts.

“Our lives become beautiful not because we are perfect. Our lives become beautiful because we put our heart into whatever we do.”
- Sadhguru, inner engineering



“A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people - people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book."

[Letters of Note; Troy (MI, USA) Public Library, 1971]”
― E.B. White

“IN THE HANDS OF MAN

He who creates a poison, also has the cure.
He who creates a virus, also has the antidote.
He who creates chaos, also has the ability to create peace.
He who sparks hate, also has the ability to transform it to love.
He who creates misery, also has the ability to destroy it with kindness.
He who creates sadness, also has the ability to to covert it to happiness.
He who creates darkness, can also be awakened to produce illumination.
He who spreads fear, can also be shaken to spread comfort.
Any problems created by the left hand of man,
Can also be solved with the right,
For he who manifests anything,
Also has the ability to
Destroy it.”
― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

This is similar to Petra. Looks like the traders had this route & several tribes have their territories around the regions in the desert.
