"...It takes a lifetime for a sigh to take effect..."
This, folks, is Chatoyance post number 1010.
And so I set out through virtual trails to find something interesting for you, using the number "1010" as a springboard.
I discovered (my ignorance is vast) the Shahnameh, written by Persian poet Firdausi around 1010. (BTW, the book is worth a look inside...select "Surprise me!" and you may find some astonishingly cool images.)
Firdausi lead me to Mirza Ghalib, the man whose ghazals elude even the most loving translators.
Thank you for walking these virtual wanderings with me, and Happy 1010 Day! If you have other interesting "1010" info to share, please do.
