I ran today to the supermarket, later in the day we had our boiler in bathroom repaired, and had some electrical interventions on switch done. Man who has done that gave me some very professional answers on my few questions, and he did not charge much money for his work. So, he impressed me both for being extremely well educated (unlike many others) and for being modest. In fact I wanted to pay to him about 70% more than he asked for, but he just refused. It is very nice to see that such kind of people still exist.

Today early in the morning I went to help my friends with some work. Later in the day I was running to buy stuff for my sister - she decided to make a pie.

Dense very dense fog tonight in Belgrade. I couldn't see the end of the street, which is under normal weather conditions so easy to do. I ran short path, and it was okay although the air feels like extremely full of smog. Temperature outside is about 4 degrees.

I visited my dentist early in the morning, and there I met very interesting doctor cardiologist, who was talking about medicine in light from biophysics and biochemistry. It was so inspiring to listen about all those mechanisms, and I always like when someone speaks in such intellectual and reasoning way about science. In the evening I ran but came back home with trolleybus, it was very fresh outside. By the way today I tasted shitake mushroom in one dish for the first time in my life, and I liked it.

This evening I ate chocolate before the run to make my life a bit sweeter. I was inspired to run uphill downhill and it was not so difficult, although I ran with my jacket and air was colder, I managed somehow.

Saturday, November 25, 2006

I ran today around the noon or so I think, it was sunny day very nice one, and I ran to the supermarket. These days I just think about chocolate and I today bought 8 chocolates (100g each). I think my family think I am crazy, but they were kind enough not to say it openly :) Later in the day I visited my dear friends.

I ran later in the evening, near the midnight the short path. Today my little friend Anja celebrates her second birthday, I wish her all the best and a lot of joy in life. Sometimes I too feel like little child, but aren't we all the eternal children? Ego is the part which becomes adult. I saw on TV that Benedictus Spinoza was born on this day too.

I ran in the afternoon, now it is dark outside in the afternoon, to the supermarket, and near my primary school, and it was nice with autumn leaves under street lights. Air is cold and it has fragrance like a snow will visit us soon. Today I wrote small JAVA program to calculate infinite series of numbers 1+1/3-1/5+1/7-1/9.... etc. That result multiplied with 4 should give something very near number PI=3.14159... So, I remember when I was in primary school I used CPC464 which ran on Z80 on only 4 MHz and I wrote that program in BASIC which was popular in those times. So, I remember that poor computer was running for hours and the error was still big. But now I put in loop number 1 billion, which was then unimaginable. It took several minutes to compute, while temperature of my 1.7 GHz Celeron rose from 35 C to 56 Celsius degrees! The result I got is 3.1415926545890476 and the error (difference from real number PI) is 9.992544569570327E-10 which means it is somewhere on tenth decimal place! Computers are miracles today, for a man just to count from 1 to billion, taking one second for each number and counting several hours a day would take entire life to count, and look what kind of calculations computer does easily in one billion loop! Here I am giving the listing of my program, and I am aware I could have written it better, but I was just playing today

public class priblizanPI { public static void main (String varg[]) { double pip, m, q=0; double n, sn=0; System.out.println("value error"); for (n=0;n<1000000000;n++) { m=1/(1+2*(n+1)); sn=Math.pow((-1),n); q=q+(m*sn*(-1)); } pip=4*(1+q); System.out.println(pip+" "+(pip-Math.PI)); }}

I ran late in the evening and it was raining outside, so I ran the short path. There was almost nobody in the streets.

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

I ran in the morning in the park. It seems it was raining during the night so I ran on the asphalt playground. Today is "slava" of my family - St. Michael Archangel Day, I don't know how to translate slava in English, but it is a custom where we celebrate our patron saint. It is very special day for us.

Monday, November 20, 2006

Despite the fact that evening was cold, I was running so happily, I was so happy.

Sunday, November 19, 2006

Today is a birthday of a friend of mine and my sisters', and I ran to the supermarket to buy a present. But supermarket is working until 17h on Sunday's and I reached it on 17:05 uh. So we had to go somewhere else, and at the end we bought very nice flowers, especially aranged with some red shiny glow. I saw a lot of my friends at the birthday and it was really nice.

Today I went to the main bus station to welcome my favourite aunt and to help her with luggage. She arrived here for a short visit, and she was absolutely my favourite aunt (among many other aunts that I have) in my childhood, and she still is. She is very selfless person, she is always ready to help others or to sacrifice her own interests because of others. Later on in the evening I ran to the white buildings, it was quite good workout and weather was nice.

Friday, November 17, 2006

Today, as yesterday I have no difficulties with running because it was like summertime, well, springtime, with unusual temperatures for this time of year. And they say tomorrow will be up to 22 degrees of celsius which is great. Only thing that I am experiencing both yesterday and today is some slight pain in right knee, but I will overcome it in time.

Srce na teren! (Heart to the Playground!)

Our girls won the bronze medal on Women's World Volleyball Championship in Japan. That is unimaginable success!!! Nobody expected medal from them before the start but they were so brave and played so much from the heart for their country. When we heard that they got the medal, our eyes were full of tears, tears of joy and gratitude. Thank you so much, you are our heroes... and I will today sing together with you, your song (the song which we all sung as children) - U svetu postoji jedno carstvo, u njemu caruje drugarstvo, u njemu je sve lepo, u njemu je sve nežno, u njemu se svet raduje (There is a kingdom in the world, in it friendship reigns, in it everything is beautiful, in it everything is tender, in it the world rejoices) Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.
Your bronze shines with golden shine. Mnogo Vam hvala, devojke, mnogo Vam hvala!!!!!

Today also is one more jubilee, oh well, exactly six months of my every day blogging here, and if we forget one day when I unintentionally skipped running (because I fell asleep when I was supposed to run :) today is also 6 months of my everyday running. What sounds better - six months or half a year :) Well, in all this time there were days when I ran under one kilometer, and there were days when I ran more than 6 kilometers daily. I experienced much oscillation, but what is more important I experienced much inner joy that running gives. Running is discovering. Every day you discover joy in the new form. There is ocean of joy within us I firmly believe, and by running we are learning to swim in that ocean.

joy, joy, joy - gratitude, gratitude, gratitude

Today was very nice day. I was strolling with my father trough the park enjoying variety of autumn colours and orange variety of colours of afternoon sun very much. Later in the evening I ran shorter path.

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

I ran again late in the evening around midnight or so, shorter path. They say on TV that weather is going to be warmer on following days, so we shall see.

Monday, November 13, 2006

I ran late in the evening, short path. In the morning I visited dentist, he is my great friend and whenever I go there there is a lot of laughing because he is cutting jokes all the time. Because in that way he fights with the fear that people have when they go to dentist, if so - it is very successful method.

Sunday, November 12, 2006

Today I went to run about noon, weather was nice, so I went to the park and ran there for a while. I saw two squirrels playing in the park, and I am really curious where do they go when it is freezing outside.

Saturday, November 11, 2006

Today I ran early in the morning, in the park. It was so funny, grass was white - I don't know English word for it, but we in Serbia call it slana which means something like salty, but strangely since it has nothing to do with salt. Well it made whole scenery beautiful. But it was cold early in the morning, but I enjoyed it. I wonder where are the squirrels in park now when it is cold. I have to search on Internet to learn more about their life.

Friday, November 10, 2006

I ran to the supermarket. Air was okay, so it was not heavy to breathe. I am shopping a lot these days, since we have eaten much of things that I bought last time for supplies.

Thursday, November 09, 2006

I ran late in the evening, it was cold and raining outside so I ran the shorter path.

Wednesday, November 08, 2006

I ran early in the morning in the park on asphalt for some time, it was fresh and nice morning. Afterwards I heard that my friend from army died in motocycle accident about 2 months ago. He was so young, 24 years only. I remember him as a man of few words, who believed so much in his own ideals, especially in relationship with his girlfriend. I never saw in my life that anyone loved his girlfriend so sincerely and devotedly as he did. His faith in love was totally unearthly. It was enough that someone mentions her to him and his eyes immediately start to shine. He loved her so very much.

Tuesday, November 07, 2006

I ran to the supermarket, warmer is the day comparing to few days ago, so not much problems with running. Later in the day I went with my mama to visit some dear friends.

Monday, November 06, 2006

Last night I had terrible tootache so today I went to the dentist. And strangely enough later on when I went out to run it affected the medicine inside my tooth - I kinda felt it so, so I ran very short path and figgured out that it is better to be still this day.

Sunday, November 05, 2006

I ran to supermarket again today, but now it was so easy, I guess that air is warmer, you can feel the plus in the air.

Saturday, November 04, 2006

I ran today to the supermarket as I used to do it one part of this summer, but now it was so heavy due to freezing air, I really need to figure something out for proper breathing while running when it is minus outside.

Friday, November 03, 2006

Today I ran one and half lap in the park, it was nothing comparing to before, but it was cold, and important thing is that I enjoyed. Although cold it was sunny outside, which all makes beautiful colours in autumn park. Later in the day, totally unexpected for me there was first snow. Here in Serbia when we see the first snow, we make a wish. I know what wish I made.

Thursday, November 02, 2006

Weather is getting colder and colder. It was -2 Celsius in the evening, I ran shorter path, but I felt the difficulties, especially of breathing cold air. It is not so easy when temperatures are below zero, and I really have to think of some strategy how to face this time of year.

Wednesday, November 01, 2006

It is very cold in the evening, and running too, so I just ran shorter path.
