Manouchehr Atashi

I found this about Atashi. The poem is one of my favorites.
It is funny though. I found the Aryaneviss and I really wanna write in Persian, but it is like I never find the time for that.
Probably when I write in Persian, my happy side will rise. When I write in English, it is the serious Chakameh who is talking, while personally I am very happy and always try to make a happy environment wherever I am.
We'll see.

Jacques Brel - Ne Me Quitte Pas

Just click, listen and enjoy. This is one me favorite songs.
By the way there is this website that I found the music in, which is a very interesting blog. One of those "to be remembered".

It is a while since my last post. Not that anyone is waiting for me to write anything. It is just a sign for myself to see how far I am standing from the normal life. Days come and go so fast. Unbelievable. I feel like we are just living it. Amir and I really try hard to keep it up, but Oh well.
We have been in San Diego two weeks ago and I wanted to talk about it. I met very nice people and there were so many things to write, but now I don’t feel like it any more.
Then later that week I wanted to prepare a short paper about the benefits of Biotechnology-related Seminars in Iran. I gathered some information through the web and prepare the preliminary draft. Then I thought it is good to write an e.mail to my friends and co-workers (Ex-co workers) who live in different parts of the world and ask what they think. This way I would include their point of views in my paper. Believe it or not, I wrote to more than 50 person and got answers from 2.
One was from my former Professor in Iran, that I really appreciate his answer. I actually appreciate the time he spent to write me. The other was from another professor that I met just once in Belgium, Sep 2000.
This made me believe why we never go ahead in Iran. Level of collaboration is ZERO.
Well, I never finished that paper, mainly because I got sick that week and I was too busy catching up with my 12 hour work / day. But nevertheless even now when I think about not being responded from those that I consider as “friend” makes me feel so sorry for myself.
