Mohamed Farrag on Intimacy, Vulnerability, and Relationships

2nd episode of Season 2. I have believed wholeheartedly for years in the masterful talent of Mohamed Farrag. And I knew it must come from the well of life inside of him as an actor and as a person.

But seeing it here, displayed in quiet strength in conversation with his wife Passant Shawky, is something else altogether. His vulnerablity. His poise. His tapping into his emotions. His ability to move deftly between humor and seriousness. His work in understanding himself in order to understand her and thus love her.

A 50 minutes of investment of time into watching a little masterclass on communication, connection, and love.

Wordless Intimacy

A couple sat in front of me on the underground today. They both took out their phones on settling in. He put his hand though on her thigh and it just stayed there.

Every now and then, they would come up for air from their phones, to leave little feather kisses on each other’s mouthes. It was truly beautiful and sublime to watch.

Every time they did it, it seemed like they would slow down as their lips touched. It wasn’t rushed, like kiss me so I can get back to Facebook, but rather I’ll meet you here in this moment.

Two people on their way to work, average-looking like I am, present and together, even as they’re doing different things, not having to talk or chit-chat to be together, their intimacy woven together with selfless physical contact and light kisses.

I really saw intimacy in action today.
