This is my house
In Damascus, most of the old houses are similar.
The man in the video below is my Father. He used to clean the yard and do the maintenance of the house by his own hands like other old men do there. I talked about my Father in another post: Home is where the heart is.
I believe you know now the story behind my logo!

What a lovely home. It looks like your garden was in an atrium. Beautiful. Mohamad, how did you choose Qatar over other countries? I would love to learn more about that place, too. Sending you hugs. It must be so hard to see these pictures with all that is going on in Syria.
Thank you, Linda. Life isn’t easy but with nice people like your good self around us, things are better for sure. I’ll write about Qatar in the near future hopefully.
Like this home style, it is really a type of Syria home styles!
Thank you, Hussein. Yes, it’s typical. Most of the houses there are very similar. Of course, some might be larger, with more antiques, …
Such a lovely home, Mohamad! Thank you for sharing personal garden & architectual photos. 🎶 Christine
You’re welcome, Christine. Thank you for your kind words too…
What a beautiful home. Loved the music too! May your father rest in paradise. Thank you for sharing💗
Thank you too, Mina. Isn’t the music wonderful?
It truly is!💗
Wow. To a very modern-day Australian this is like something out of a book or movie. Rustic, rural, lush, private. I imagine it must be very difficult for you to revisit these images (and video) of your dad and Syria knowing that one has passed over and the other is in such dire predicament at the moment. I hope one day Syria returns to this scene of tranquillity. Thank you for sharing something so personal.
I’m glad you like it, Jess. Those words describe it very well. When things get better, I’ll invite you so you can write your next novel there 🙂
Oh imagine writing in that space! It would truly be awe-inspiring! 🤗
I was studying there. It’s really inspiring….
