ای سفرکرده نور چشمانم، ای گل باغِ زندگانی من
ای بلور نگاه روشن تو، نقشی از جلوه جوانی من

تا سفر کرده ای ز شهر و دیار، رو به هر سو که می کنم خالیست
جز امید دوباره دیدن تو، دیگرم هیچ انتظاری نیست

دوریت گرچه سخت و جانفرساست، لیک من از امید سرشارم
عکس تو در کنار آینه ای، غمگسار من است و غمخوارم

همه جا با منی اگرچه بسی، بین ما کوه و دره و دریاست
تا رسد روز بازگشتن تو، همه شب چشم من پی فرداست

دانم آنجا تو هم به یاد وطن، روز خود را ز شب نمی دانی
گر بهشتت دهند در غربت، باز در آرزوی ایرانی

نامه های تو می رسد گه گاه، با همه شرح شوق و بی تابی
در دلت شعله ها برانگیزد، یاد این آسمان مهتابی

یاد این شهر آشنای عزیز، که به هر گوشه اش نشانه توست
دفتر یادگار ایامی که پر از خط کودکانه توست

یاد دستی که ریخت از آغاز، از گُل آرزو وجود ترا
درس عشق و محبت آموخت، بافت از مهر تار و پود ترا

دانم آن خاطرات دور و دراز، همه جا با تو همره است هنوز
پر کشی سوی آشیان هر دَم، همچنان مرغکان دست آموز

در همه نامه های شیرینت، نقشی از انتظار می بینم
در خزان جدایی و اندوه، جلوه های بهار می بینم

ای چنان بخت از کنارم دور، ای چنان آرزو به دل نزدیک
روز دیدار می رسد از راه، بگذرد آخر این شب تاریک

باز می گردی از سفر یک روز، با ره آورد عشق و شور و امید
تا سراپا از آرزو سرشار، خوشه چینی از خرمن خورشید

بینم آن روز را به چشم خیال، که تو را در کنار خود بینم
ز سفر سرفراز باز آیی، حاصل انتظار خود بینم

به درازا سخن کشید و هنوز، سخنان نگفته بسیار است
نور چشمم مشو ز خود غافل، که مرا آرزوی دیدار است

زنده ماندم که روز آمدنت، به تو گویم خوش آمدی به وطن
ارمغان من علم و دانش تو، هدیه تو تمام هستی من

شعر از لعبت والا

SF2

When I woke up this morning, I had a little headache and I was worry maybe I have a cold and then I took all the morning very easy, had my breakfast then back to my room and lied and watched TV until 12 , then I checked out and I went to Pharmacy to buy some tabletets and some other small shoppings and before 2 , I was in airport and I'm sitting here in the lounge of British airways in SF, and now waiting for my flight back to home. It was just one week but I feel I missed home for ages. This morning, I watched a programme in TV about Medical debts in US and stories of families who lost everything even their homes for hospital costs. That was really scary and i was thinking it's very good to have a health system like UK that you don't need to be worry for these kind of things. And my way to airport, i talked to taxi driver and he said he is from Russia who moved with his family to US to follow American dream and the dream came true now and he loves SF..... I should go now. I have a long flight ahead !

San Francisco

" Every man should be allowed to love two cities- his own and San Francisco." - Gene Fowler

Yesterday and today , I took the tours to visit famous places of San Francisco. I am so lucky as my hotel  is in the heart of city which calls Union Square and to show that it's the heart of city there are some hearts in each corner of this square, and more important the hotel is next to my favourite department store, macy's. And it seems that we are lucky at this time of year as the weather is so sunny and warm. I heard that usually San Francisco has cold summers and mild winters, but these days the weather is just fantastic. I read somewhere that Mark Twain said: "The coldest winter I ever saw was the I spent in San Francisco." Anyway, in this gorgeous weather, I visited Golden Gate Bridge,Palace of Fine Arts, Lombard Street, Fisherman's Wharf and Bay Bridge and passed from China Town and some other famous city sights.Also I've seen the mansion of Danieel Steal's which is the most expensive house in the city. I have tickets for another tur to see the city at night, but as I start to feel tired earlier these days , I think I'm not going for that. I did some shoppings for our little one and I'm going to finish my shopping this evening. It's a great city , but I missed home ....

Here is very beatiful and I'm going to enjoy the rest of my trip to San Francisco. I did my talk this afternoon and even my supervisior was very happy with that, not to mention my advisor who was the chair of session and some famous people in my field gave me very positive comments.

After conference when I was in lobby of the hotel, I met an Iranian girl who is living in London . She looked very nice and friendly and I'm looking to foreward to talk her more later when we back to UK.

My advisor will recieve a distinction award tomrrow and to celebrate that he invited me as well as some of his other friends for dinner tomorrow.

I did lots of shopping for our little baby and my supervisior asked me what am I going to buy for Hassan and he gave me some ideas....

I'm going to escape the conference and take one of the city tours tomorrow ....

می خواستم دیروز بنویسم تولدم مبارک ٬ که توی راه بودم و نشد. حالا بنویسم که ورود به سی سالگیم ثبت بشه !  همیشه فکر می کردم  وارد دهه چهارم زندگی شدن ٬ یعنی اینکه دیگه جوان نیستی و از فکر اینکه  بگم سی ساله هستم می ترسیدم.... هنوز هم شاید همینطوری باشه ٬ ولی وقتی به پشت سر نگاه می کنم ٬ دوست دارم همین جایی که هستم باشم. دوست ندارم دوباره بیست ساله باشم و نگران درس و .... گویی هر مرحله ای در زندگی یک دوره ای دارد !

1- Yesterday we went to see our baby again, and this time many thanks God, she was fine and there was no danger with that Aminotic band. She was so lovely and around 16cm length, very calm and gentle.Oh, I love her ! The last time booked a series of scans for me and i thought I'm going to see her again next week and the week after. But as yesterday everything was fine, they cancelled all those appointments and just to reassure me ,they booked another appointment in next 2 months. I want to see her again now !!

2- Last week, I decided not to go to upcoming conference next week as it costs too much and I was thinking I went to lots of conferences (although I love to see San Francisco), but this week when my supervisior came back he asked me about my presentation and i told him that probably I'm not coming for conference , he said I should go and he asked me to choose my flight and hotel and he will pay himself! And even, he asked me to book my flight with just British Airways as it cause more trouble to trnsfer from another US airport, therefore when normal ticket costs just around £600 , I bought a ticket for more than £1200 and also a lovely hotel in the centre of town. That's great, isn't it?

 3- The other day, we gave the news to my supervisior that we are expecting a baby and amazingly this made him very happy and congragulate us and even yesterday when I saw him the first thing he asked about baby and the results of scan , and I told him that i'm going to do in the afternoon , and around 12 o'clock he told me : "you are going to be late for your scan , go !!" I can't believe , I thought as I just strted my new job it might be make him upset , but instead he is very happy and supportive!

 4- It's a long time that I decided not to watch any Iranian movies and last night , BBC4 had a documentary movie about "Death of a WAG", and it was about the murder of a wife of one of Iran's football stars. It was terrible !

5- I have less than a week to prepare my talk for the conference and prepare a poster and also finish the corrections of my thesis . Lots of work & I should really work hard ! And I look foreward to see if San Francisco is as beatiful as Daniell Steels'movie.

 We were very stressful during last two months and I'm going to enjoy the rest of my pregnancy... Thanks  God for everything !

Viva

Last Wednesday was my viva, and although I passed it with A Grade but the internal examiner was terrible and she asked lots of none sense questions and even she asked for doing some changes in the published papers in the high impact factor journals like Diabetes Care & Diabetes ( so funny ) ! I was very upset when I finished as even instead of acknowledging all the work that I did, they said we can't believe that all of this work is done by one person ! Anyway, as my supervisior said they are just jealous ( because of the millions pounds grants that we secured with the results of my PhD and the published papers) and I should just ignore them and just be HAPPY! Just one day after exam, I recieved the list of minor corrections which I should do from internal examiner and in that email she did congrugultion and said I did a great job , hahaaaa , such a witch ! Anyway, that was the end of another chapter of my life, and formally I don't have any more academic exams in my life, except those profesional exams that I should do !
