Please add some colours to this World!

On soups and tales the heart thrives!

I feel like jumping in.

Colori d'estate (Summer's colours)!

Summer (estate in Italian) is indissolubly bound to memories of the creamy white of the coconuts sold on the beach and the black hot sand under a blue sky.

Coming Out

Sharky waiting for your colours!

Thursday, June 19, 2014


A Shaykh... a Shark... what is the difference, anyway? HA HA HA! HA HA HA!! HA HA HA!!! HA HA HA!!!!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014


But... you are a Shaykh! Will you go back to your darvishes as a shark?!?
For sure I will...

Tuesday, June 17, 2014


Yes, Dear Nûr!!! This is the effect of a glance of a Master: my Real Self awoke! A Shark am I and forever will be!! SHARKS AHOY!!!!

Gurudev Tagore is gone, but Darfish is still Shark-shaped...

Yo Ho Ho... and a Bottle of Ink!

Salam Dear Cartoon-and-Frog Lovers! The coming strip (# 629, starting tomorrow) contains a novelty: it is inked with nibs and bottled inks. A sort of "Back to the Tradition" which Marina greatly enjoyed... because the ink is BLACK and the lines are SHARP.

Speaking Heart

Froggies waiting for your colours!

We are shown how stingy and cruel we can be!

*And this is Love - the vertigo of heaven
Beyond the cage of words,
Suddenly to be naked in the searchlight
of truth..."

The above lines are from a poem of Rumi translated by Raficq Abdulla. See page 20 of this book: *Words of Paradise* - Viking Studio.

I mean love strips us naked, and in the searchlight of truth we are...

For the sword hidden among Love's pinions, see "Love" in Gibran Kahlil Gibran's *The Prophet*.

We were talking love. And love is about cutting and being cut.
You mean that those who fear, fear the pain of the blade?

It appears that Mr Darfish is quite fluent in the Tangramese language!

Apologies if I did upset you, Sir... but I was speaking heart, not mind...
Hummm Hummm

The Tangram Ship

Froggies waiting for your colours!

Thursday, June 5, 2014


Right, Frog, Right! I am here because this Darfish misquoted me. What I said is: "A mind that is all logic is like a knife that is all blade!".

Wednesday, June 4, 2014


It is true it morphs! A big "T".
"T" as... as... Tagore, may be?

Tuesday, June 3, 2014


COOL! The Tangram Ship is coming our way; I heard it can morph at will...
