Sayed Saad el Din helps us understand, put some reasoning into this piercing feeling of attachment, of belonging to a land where kindness still exists hidden underneath the sand, where warmth wraps the mind and soul past a blazing sun, where harmony is concealed behind turmoil, and where hope prevails, though tomorrow is capricious.
And as we look at “the heart (which) has its reasons that reason does not know” (Pascal), it seems that Sayed Saad el Din may know after all. Because he chose optimism over despair and because he chose beauty over exasperation. Saad el Din knows that our love can never end and will never end and lures us into a wonderfully sincere and touching world where perfection is no coincidence and mystery is the answer.
And while Sayed Saad el Din attempts to draw the veil from some of the ambiguities that overshadow our life, he ceremoniously reveals the essence as well as the perfection that lie behind the imperfections. He lays bare our instinct for freedom that cannot be reversed and that must grow to a powerful force if there is to be hope. Sayed Saad el Din ultimately restores the greatest secrets to that enigma, in which we live and ever will remain. And that enigma is Egypt.
