The secret

Joy, love, freedom, happiness, laughter. That's what it is. And if you just experience joy sitting there and mediating for an hour, by golly, do that. If you experience joy eating a salami sandwich, then do that!

-Neale Donald Walsch, from the book "Secret"

Isn't it great to be specialized in your field, to be able to solve any problems related to your field? I hope I become one of those people.

You could love someone as a substitute for so many things. you could love someone as a very effective substitute for loving yourself.

Florence




Sunset in Tuscany



I loved Florence for its artful corners, its gracious streets, and its Italian essence. I loved the fact that I never got tired of walking in streets of Florence. And I was always amused by the sculptures and nature in this small city. Good times,,,,

New beginning

I didn't have internet for a week and that was frustrating specially during Labour Day weekend. Now it's more than ten days that my Internet is back but I've not written anything yet. I still have some good memories from my summer to write here and to preserve it forever (by forever, I mean as long as this site exists). I will do that later.
A lot has happened this past week. I've moved to a new city, met new people, and start a new life, new program... .
So this will be the first post, I am writing from beautiful Vancouver and I want it to be extra special.
One of the most interesting things I have seen since I got here has to be the Koerner Library located at UBC campus.
It is magnificent glass building, designed by Arthur Erickson . The official opening was 10 years ago and it costs $24 million dollars to finish. It is supposed to be an open book which is turned over. When I get my camera, I'll take some pictures to post here. For now take a look at this one.
