1. Reference added by translator to the poet John Keats gravestone who also died at a young age, reference was added since the poet uses the same symbols as are written on Keats gravestone.

من در اين آبادی، پی چيزی می گشتم :
پی خوابی شايد،
پي نوری، ريگی، لبخندی
In this land, I am seeking something, to find:
A dream maybe,
A sparkle of light, a stone, or a smile

Translated from the great Varqa
It’s morn and the morning breeze
that spring scented wind
and I taste the fragrance of life
from my beloved's locks of hair

T.S. Eliot’s work “The Waste Land” is a powerful depiction of a world. It is a place that has everything but is devoid of life and so everything becomes nothing. This is a fragmented poem where he writes in a shattered style so the poem itself speaks through its contrasting accents. Here he also introduces timeless dialog that reflects much of what we see today. His prophetic words “I can connect nothing with nothing” show a connected world were meaning is lost. Here the land is a reflection of the people. T.S. Eliot received the Noble Prize for Literature for his work.
This work is a great example of how literature can transcend the bounds of culture and language. This poem is an opposite mirror of Sepehri’s work. Where Sepehri shows life, Eliot shows its non-existence.

Drowned I the sea of self in itself
Wonder what boundless sea that I am
This is the first poem I translated from Rumi.

Embrace death, embrace death,
in this love, death embrace
in this love as death's embraced
all shall live receiving life
Accept death, accepting
Arise above the dust
And rise unto heaven
In death severe the self
That binds your self to yourself
Yourself enslaved, enchained
Take the axe and unchain
Shatter the cell, free that King
Beauteous king, that in death lives
in us all, as kings live
To die then is to descend
And cast away the cloud
From that luminous moon
Be silent, in silence
Does death descend and we
Embrace life, in silence.
When first I gazed upon your face
our eyes did lock your face to mine
Your sorrow hence I shall recount
each thought each strand of hair entwined
to see your face I then set out
as zephyr wind to cross to find
From house to house and door to door
each way each street, each path each place

I became interested in whether Jupiter's moon Europa has a sub-surface ocean. I wanted to compare the surface on Europa to frozen ice on Earth's oceans. You can get to the research paper if you click on the image of Europa below:
After this research I wanted to understand the mathematics behind combining two fractals so I took a fractal's class and the results are also posted under "super-imposing fractals" in this weblog.
If two distinct processes create two differing fractal dimensions (i.e. geological processes--breaking of ice and shifting of icy surfaces) then what happens if the processes get super-imposed? What is the mathematics involved in this? The math attached is perhaps one way to try to answer this. I used both empirical (Mathematica tm) and theoretical approaches yielding similar results.
