Yesterday is a unforgettable day for me�
I put my pride, logic, patience and tolerance at the back of the door! I could hear their sounds! They argued, they tried to come and prevent me to do so! But they had no permission to come in!
I was free of all that!
All that has happened were reviewed in my mind freshly completely fresh and new!
I did not want to think about any but myself!
My favorite music started to play and Little by little, I felt wet and warm tears� I welcomed them. �
My eyes were so kind! They became rainy to calm my heart! �.
As my heart was so kind that tolerated all only to keep their beauty�
Oh no� All parts of my body were crying! All need to water themselves! All was perished! I forgot myself!
I cried for all the words that I said! For all I heard! For all the ignorance�s! For all the times that I wasted� Times and times�!
Yes I waste the best time for my M.A exam!
But today I am well! I let them to come together and consult.
Perhaps they can help me!

Tonight the patient volcano arrives to the high time. All that hot kindness and beliefs melted and �. The volcano exploded.
You are still kind! You let me to explode and cry! You are so kind! Thanks! Thanks!

Some months ago I wrote some thing about �Hejab� (Islamic cover for women). But I think it was not enough because so far some of my readers ask me about it. Islam said it is better for women to cover their bodies from who are not their father, brothers, husband and uncles.
It is better for them to avoid wearing thigh and thin clothes and cover their hairs when they are in a place that there is/are unknown man. Surly, it is a general law and every body should analyze it and adopt it with his/her situation. Some of Islamic intellectuals believe that Hejab is relative matter and it depends on time and place and some other factors. They believe, Islam suggests women to do it only to respect women�s dignity that they are not respectful and attractive for their beauty but for their thoughts and beliefs.
In Quran, the God said: �there is no force for you to accept our laws and rules �.� (Baqareh 256)
Now, in Iran it is a law for women to use Hejab. And each woman as an Iranian citizen should obey the laws.
I should mentioned that in Islam we are advised to use light colors like blue, green, pink and white.. And avoid using black. Unfortunately, in Iran most of Iranian women prefer to use black clothes!

On Saturday, the last day of symposium we had a short trip to Yazd. The city is located in central. The historians have written that its history goes back to one millennium before the emergence of Islam. Its name comes from �Yazdan�. It means �holiness� and �blessedness�. The city was the settlement and central city for Zoroastrians. Most of the Fire Temples in Iran are located in Yazd. Fire temple is holy place for Zoroastrians to worship the God. In Farsi it calls �Atash kadeh�, Atash means fire and Kadeh means temple. We visited �Dowlat Abad� garden in this Garden there is a very large house, which has special building structure that can get wind and make the house cool and pleasure. And also �Dakhmeh�s it means crypts. They were a place for dead bodies. In past Zairians put the dead bodies on Crypts because they believed that dead bodies had more noise when they talked with the God so they should be put on the Crypt to be closer to God. And after some times they buried them.

Saturday was the last day of 2nd GIAN International Symposium. GIAN is the abbreviation of German- Iranian Alumni Network.
It was started on April 14-18, 2004 in University of Isfahan.
The title was Globalization: towards a Sustainable International cooperation, environment, human resource development and higher education.
I was a member of executive committee and also coordinator of the daily newsletter. As well I was the translator for Iranian reporters.

Some day ago, one of my dear American readers who is now my good friend sent me an email. It contains true and unbelievable matters.
I think it is good for u to read it. Perhaps you might enjoy it too.

You may not realize it, but it's 100% true.

1. At least 2 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. If not for you, someone may not be living
8. You are special and unique.
9. Someone that you don't even know exists, loves you.
10. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
11. When you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely turned your back on the world.
12. When you think you have no chance of getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it.
13. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.
14. Always tell someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.
15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are great.

Today was 13th, the last day, of Iranian New Year holidays.
It calls a day with nature. In the day all the Iranian come out their homes and go to natural places such as parks, farm, jungle, � and spend the day there with their family or/and relatives.
In the past number 13 was a devil number and perhaps for this reason Iranian prefer to spend the first 13th day of new year with nature to kill all the devil signs and learn many things from nature such as patient, kindness, stability, � .
