    Six Questions From You to Me
T
his page is dedicated to my friend, Morris Wiginton, for spashing cold water in my face regarding my body.

Please ask me anything so I can update this from time to time.


1a.) WHAT IS THE TRUE INTENDED MEANING OF THE NAME SAAHIRA?

Some Middle Eastern and Turkish people tell me my name means "stays up all night" or "Take Me Out". People from Kuwait tell me this and some Egyptians. However, this is not the intended meaning of my Stagename. My dance name for performing is Saahira and the true intended Arabic meaning is: "Magician" or "Wizard". OKAY???


1.) WHY NOT ALOT OF RECENT PICTURES, PHOTOS OF SAAHIRA?

For almost 5 years, to avoid dealing with the problem in my marriage, I buried myself in work. In the last 3 of those years, I loved my job as an International Medical Insurance Claims Analyst. I worked from 8 a.m. sometimes 7 and 6 in the morning, until 9 p.m. at night when the network at my work would force me out by kicking me out to run a batch cycle. Made alot of money (where is it now? I don't know). The price to pay was that I let myself go, physically, because I did not take the time for my body or myself.

I am getting better now and blocking out time for all aspects of me. Check out the new photos here and more coming soon now that I have a digital. Please visit again.


2.) WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE BELLY DANCER OF ALL TIME?

Nadia Gamal. She becomes one with the music. She combines crisp, sharp moves layered with soft undulating moves, along with a fiery passion, drive and sexiness that is unsurpassed for me.

Does anyone know how Nadia died? When I heard the news, I was very upset. She was much too young. If anyone knows the real story, please email me.

You can find videos of Nadia here and there on the Internet. You can also find a few fantastic high quality performances associated with Ibrahim Farrah.

3.) I HAVE BEEN GIVEN A PRIVATE EMAIL ADDRESS OF SAAHIRA WITH ALOT OF LETTER "M's" IN IT. WHAT IS WITH ALL THE "M's"?

Someone recently asked me to describe myself quickly. The first thing that went into my mind was that I have the naive and some physical curviness of a Marilyn Monroe type. The next thing I thought of was Martha Davis of the rock group, The Motels. Martha's lyrics and music are all about falling down and getting back up again. She's a good "bad girl" with a past. The early songs of The Motels are all time favorites of mine.

So the M's are: Marilyn Monroe, Martha and Me. And the shape of the M's all connected reminds me of a heartbeat...

4.) WHY DOES SAAHIRA IGNORE ME ON ICQ AND NOT ABLE TO TALK ALOT?

It is nothing personal, I am just really busy right now with the divorce, a busy full time work schedule, and getting myself back in shape. I am also working on reducing the number of animals in my farm, so that I can free myself up to travel the world and meet and spend time with some of you. Traveling is something that I have done practically none of. I really would like to visit and see the world. It is a goal of mine now. Please don't give up on me. I will write when things settle down, and quite possibly, go to visit some of you.

5.) WHY IS SAAHIRA SO BEAUTIFUL?

I am not really all that beautiful, appearancewise, actually I am rather plain, but I try my best to get a good photo. It's hard for me to even begin to do pictures because I am really very shy. Remember always too, inner beauty is just as, if not more important than the exterior.

With much love, - L.
