Alexandria

With us on board, the train pulled out of Dayrout and sped towards its destination, Alexandria. It was a special train for students and it stopped only once in Cairo then rolled on to AlexandriaThis was the summer of 56 in the past century. At the time, my scholastic knowledge about Alexandria, its military and political history, was very limited. Nonetheless, I was fully conscious of its important position and cultural prestige, an awareness that was imparted through whatever cultural diffusion means available thenThe moment for meeting Alexandria had arrived ...I turned towards the sea...and for the first time caught sight of large quantities of sea air, vast expanses of blue water and marveled at the waves as they broke vigorously These where the moments when I realized that I stood before a new source of inspirationone that took hold of every iota of my imagination..

 

Alexandria, at the time, possessed a special kind of attractionit was friendly and radiant, aware of its magic and confident of its beautyIt came across as if it were an independent planet whose inhabitants inhaled the fragrance of freedom, tolerance, eloquence and nobilitya planet whose spiritual environment invites the visitor to soar, meditate and create. On Alexandrias shore, I enjoyed listening to chants, hymns and melodies that reflected the interaction and continuity between the harmony of its classic architecture, the motion of water, air and waves and the pace of its worldly Alexandrian citizens.

 

Days and eras came and wentMy encounters with Alexandria increased and my understanding of its roots became more profound. I could trace the source of decay that sapped its vitality and partly effaced its grace and sensed the impact of time on its citizens But whoever loved this city as I do will continue to revere its history and defend its glory, splendor and universal cultureAlexandria was built and founded to serve as a beacon of light and crossroads of civilizations and culturesCentury after century, it continued to radiate beauty, wisdom and knowledgeIt continued to sing songs of love, harmony and peace among peopleIt glorified the thinking of philosophers, intellectuals, musicians and artistsI love Alexandria and adore it. I place my trust in its future.
