There is something soothing and calming about the thick and heavy warm air of Sharjah as it moves crisply through the palm trees and finds a home in your lungs. Taking it all in requires a concerted effort and present mind to fully appreciate the life it aides in coursing through your body. It activates this feeling of vitality and extreme possibly from the far flung regions of the city from which it has travelled.
Yet breathing the air for too long can have unintended consequences. The ambitious high brought forth by the air varies from person to person and lingers longer in those who are the most worthy of dreamers. Extended periods of breath and the calming comfort of achieving distant dreams can soon and easily be replaced by mediocrity as one ponders too long for not taking action on dreams sooner – be it because of their own fright, depression, stupidity, lack of confidence or laziness.
This pondering by men soon leads to resentment towards others, and in most cases oneself. Men who have breathed the air of Sharjah for too long can be found sulking about, taking in deep breaths to recapture their lost ambitious high that has been overpowered by the almighty mediocrity found in everyday dreaming.
Breathe the air of Sharjah, but never breathe the Air of Sharjah.
