به کعبه رفتم و آنجا هوای کوی تو کردم

 

جمال کعبه تماشا به یاد روی تو کردم

 

چو حلقه در کعبه به صد نیاز گرفتم

 

دعای حلقه گیسوی مشکبوی تو کردم

 

مرا به هیچ مقامی نبود غیر تو نامی

 

طواف و سعی که کردم به جستجوی تو کردم

 

(جامی)

 

 

 

I don't know what's wrong with me tonight . I feel very excited and frantic ( but I don't know for what ??) , these kind of emotionsare not usual for me & I feel so strange and weird......

A song for tonight ... ....

Amazingly , my essay has been selected to attend in the "Third conference of Best PhD medical essays"  which will be held in Czech republic at the end of this month . It was very competitive and they choosed just 2 essays from all PhD students in our university, I wasn't sure to attend in the competition but  as my supervisiver said " Who dares wins "   I just tried my chance , although I was sure I 'll  not be selected , but they did  and I was selected as one of two students and me and another student are  going in next couple of weeks with the dean of our faculty to Hradec Králové, 

But there is a good point here is that you don't know what will be happen next in your life , when you are sorry for something which didn't happen. My supervisior , advisor and some of my other colleagues are going to Cape Town,South Africa at the same time for another conference .I loved to go and visit Cape town and also the headline of conferences were very intersting,  but  I didn't submit any paper for that conference as I went and presented in  a  similar conference  a couple of months ago ,therfore I didn't apply for this conference and  I was sorry for myself , but now I'm going to another conference ,much more important for my academic career , that's great , isn't it ???  God, Thank you  very much !

دل باد از هوا خالی است
 برای باد دشمن بودن و دلبستگی
 سهل است ، پوشالی است
 من از زیبایی و زشتی چه می دانم
 نه در خشکی نه در دریا ، نمی مانم
 مرا با خشم یا نفرین
 مرا با روزگار تلخ یا شیرین
 مرا با سفره ی بیرنگ یا رنگین
 نه کاری هست
 نه بر دوشم
 ز اوقات و ز اوصاف گذشته
 رنج هستی
خواب و سرمستی
 نه آثاری نه باری هست
 و بهر بودنم ، آسودنم هر دم شعاری هست
 فضای ذهن من پک است از امروز و از فردا و از دیروز
و از هر روز
 برای من هدف پوچ است
 حیات باد در کوچ است .........

1. You can watch and listen to this concert of Monica Jalili in Trinity church, New York. It's very nice , I like it !

2. An advice for myself : " Don't let your mind get caught up in things that are superficial and petty. Life is too short to dwell on matters that don't have any major bearing on reality. Plant your feet deep into the earth in order to maintain a solid grounding in your beliefs. Your will may be tested in one way or another, so be prepared for this challenge. You can certainly meet it."

3. Nothing for now ......

And a lovely song for today :

Deeper than the words

گل بود و به سبزه نیز آراسته شد....

-معاون تحقيقات و فناوري وزارت بهداشت عنوان كرد: لزوم افزايش 3 برابري بودجه پژوهش در متمم بودجه

-افزايش سهم پژوهش در متمم بودجه 85، دولت خلف وعده كرد (روزنامه خراسان)

A couple of days ago ,I was reading this letter and today the news about research budget of our country ? What can we say when we hear these kind of news?   I think  with this situation , lossing  of more intellectual and technical sources of our country is normal and in fact it's the most logical reaction for researchers,scientists,....We know that the brain drain is a complicated problem because it is affected by political, cultural, economic, and professional factors. It would be wrong to assume that the brain drain problem can be solved without taking care of the other problems of the society. While most developing, and even some developed, countries are faced with this problem, the reason for immigration is not the same everywhere.  The goverment should try to create a favorable intellectual, scientific, cultural and economic atmosphere in the country, so that people are encouraged to go back home and serve their country. 

And reading the news made you more confused everyday about this critical question:"To stay or Not to Stay" !!

ای بیخبر بکوش که صاحب خبر شوی
تا راهرو نباشی کی راهبر شوی

دست از مس وجود چو مردان ره بشوی
تا کیمیای عشق بیابی و زر شوی

خواب و خورت ز مرتبه عشق دور کرد
آنگه رسی به عشق که بی خواب و خور شوی

گر نور عشق حق بدل و جانت اوفتد
بالله کز آفتاب فلك خوبتر شوی

یکدم غریق بحر خدا شو گمان مبر
کز آب هفت بحر بیک موی تر شوی

وجه خدا اگر شودت منظر نظر
زین پس شکی نماند که صاحب خبر شوی

بنیاد هستی تو چو زیر و زبر شود
در دل مدار هیچ که زیر و زبر شوی

گر در سرت هوای وصالست حافظا
باید که خاک درگه اهل هنر شوی

Instructions For Life

“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”Albert Camus

سر و صدای آتش بازی میاید و همه جا اثری از این کدو تنبلهاست و  اینها نشانه نزدیک بودن  هالوین است . اینجا تاریخچه این مراسم و این شب رو میتونید بخوانید  ٬  (این شب در اصل از جشنی مذهبی پایه گرفته است که از قرن نهم بعد از میلاد مرسوم بوده و "روز تمام مقدسین" یا All Hallows Day نام داشته است. مسیحیان در این روز که مطابق با اول نوامبر است، به افتخار تمام قدیسین جشنی برپا میکنند که امروز به نام All Saints Day شهرت دارد و هالووین، شب قبل این جشن است.  یکی از آداب بسیار رایج در هالووین trick-or-treat نام دارد و بسیار شبیه به قاشق زنی  است، به این ترتیب که افراد- به خصوص کودکان - در گروه هایی کوچک به در خانه ها رفته و میگویند trick-or-treat  ٬ اینو نوشتم تا یادم باشه امسال برای بچه های همسایه چیزی آماده کنم و گرنه مثل  پارسال میشه ......)

Look at my horoscope today : "Start your day by taking a few minutes to write in a journal, mitra. This activity provides an avenue for you to communicate and to connect with your inner being. Things you need to do, ambitions, and challenges can speak out while you're writing, providing a map of directions that need to be taken. Even if starting is difficult, stick with it. The words will come if you give it a chance, and it can make your day so much easier. "   It looks right , I've just started writing some drafts for couple of papers and today I should finish them and give to my supervisior . I feel inconfidence about my writing and I wish my supervisior will like them , I should do some more changes now .

By the way, today is Eid El-Fitr and we have a lovely sunny but chilly autumn day . Eid Mubarak !!!!!

(My dearest Mum likes  an unfamous singer  , I found that clip today , I put it here to show to my mum when I'll be with her . )
