#throwbackthursday to our first staff meeting with our then-new editors. We all take ourselves very seriously. Somehow this happens at every meeting.

Today’s #ajamistan repost comes from @kpartovi, who tagged a beautiful pic of Maqbarat ol-Shohada (The Poets’ Mausoleum) in #Iranian #Azerbaijan, the resting place of the famous poet Shahyar and 400 other poets and sufis. Shahryar’s poem, “amadi janam, be ghorbanat, vali hala chera” (you came, my beloved, but why now?) remains a favorite amongst lovers of #Persian poetry.
