A True Musical Story, 50th post and 1st blog anniversary

GolNaran 50 - A True Musical Story

“A true musical story”,

© Golnaran, original artwork, water color & color pencil, 50×35 cm, 2015.

  • The instrument shown in the illustration is “Daf” (frame drum); for more: “Persian Dance with Daf“, “Percussion Daf” or “Singing with Daf” and some different kinds of Daf on Google-images.
  • It has been one year since I decided to start this blog. So here I am 50 posts later – Oh, yes; I am a big fan of slow-blogging – and to everyone that has joined me, accepted my endeavors and mistakes, shared in my experiences and provided invaluable support and encouragement, I just want to say thank you. I wish to thank all of you, one by one, for all your supportive warm messages, so kind words and continuous encouragements. I’m extremely grateful to those who have followed and commented: the discussions that have taken place have been very valuable. I really don’t know how this thing – facebook – works, and I don’t know how to find “who” has been shared “which” posts and “where”, too. But please accept my deep appreciation and great thanks for all your sharings. Last but not least, I’d like to thank again all of you kind people for following, liking, commenting, sharing, visiting, supporting, linking, correcting,… I truly appreciate every single one of you! I’m so thankful for the great and fantastic artists, poets, writers, teachers, composers, musicians, bloggers,… I’ve met through this little blog. Thank you to everyone who has visited.
  • I started “STOA“.

GolNaran 50 - 1st anniversary

Thank you so much for all your support, kindness and attention. 

I truly appreciate every single one of you!

  1. Congratulations. I love the fox in your last piece. Well I love all of it, but the fox seems to make the whole piece shine. Keep on blogging. Your art is wonderful and very magical. Thanks for sharing with the world.

        1. Oh, thanks God! I was looking for a way to write my comment for you
          (Comments are disabled in WP-Reader and I, from a censored WP[dot]com blog can not write comment for you.)
          It seems that you have changed many things. The new changes are so beautiful.

          You are most welcome.
          Thank you so much.

          My very best wishes for you, ❤

          1. Thanks you like, my blog is now self hosted on WordPress so, WP not generous enough to redirect my old links to new so I have to put old blog on private. You can comment on my post directly WP readers offering less options for paid bloggers ☺

            But, there is no “comment” for your blog posts in WP-reader.

      But where is your so great blog? Where are your great shots? I can not find.
      Did you change your blog address?

      Update:
      I’m so sorry for my mistake.
      There was no link to your website on your profile page or my g-mail notification.

      I always enjoy your great shots and your choices of great quotes.
      I love all your excellent photography.

      Great thank again.

          1. Hi GolNaran,

            I just checked my list at my site and you said that you signed up YEAH! Did you enter your name and email address at http://www.nodieting.net because I don’t see your name or email on that list and that is the only way that you can receive no diet, weight-loss information from my site. Concerned! Sora ❤

          2. Hi, Dear Sora;
            Well, when I click to open your blog, a new page appeared and requested me to send a request for your private site.
            I just confirmed it and then I received a message about that the site’s manager will receive the request.
            This is what happened and I didn’t sign up anything yet.
            I didn’t make unfollow your previous blog and I keep on following.

            Best wishes for you, ❤

          3. OK GolNaran. I’m not sure that I understand what you wrote. I do have another blog but that’s not the new site that I just launched. Maybe my new site http://www.nodieting.net is not available to you online. I don’t know… But anyway, I love your work. You are so talented-one day at a time and be blessed!!! Sora ❤
