EN: Summer, sunshine, happiness and color! This would be the short description of the last days, all topped with a sweet feeling of "il dolce far niente". The crazyness of flowers in pastel shades, all the birds with their shinny feathers and the butterflies elegantly dancing in the sky, these were all my inspiration, so everything I've painted lately has been colorful and cheerful.
Si cum bucuria noastra de vara sunt plimbarile si festivalurile, weekendul trecut ne-am distrat de minune "Pe coclauri", la evenimentul "Masive Gathering", unde Primitiv Entertainment a tinut ateliere.
EN: And as our greatest joy when summer comes are trips and festivals, last weekend we had great fun at the "Pe coclauri, Massive Gathering" event, where Primitiv Entertainment held workshops.
EN: Valentin took out his massage table and helped people relax. He had the help of perfect conditions: a beautiful, sunny weather, the big oak trees keeping us cool at their shade and music on the background!
EN: We learned archery...
EN: And the beautiful people released their creativity at the woodburning and wood painting workshops.
Ne-a placut tare mult atmosfera festivalului, care, desi la a doua editie, ne-a lasat o senzatie faina de buna organizare, de grija pentru participanti si de mai vrem:)
EN: We really enjoyed the festival, which, although only at the second edition, left us with a feeling of well done, care for the participants and we want to go back:)

EN: What a joy I have when I can look up and see this beautiful deep blue, sprinkled with fluffy white clouds that in their movement, transform themselves into birds, dragons, icecream cups or who knows what other mystical creatures. The clear sky is my favorite part of the summer, so I captured a piece of it in an elder tree heart, so I can wear it all the time and remember to smile.
Weekendul acesta, pe langa cerul senin, am avut parte de o experienta unica: am partcipat la un festival de reenactment, intr-un fost castru roman din orasul Carnuntum, Austria.
EN: This weekend, besides the clear sky, we enjoyed a wonderful experience: we were part of a reenactment festival, that took place in a former roman fortress from the Austrian city of Carnuntum.
EN: We went there as the "barbarian" dacians and for 2 days we lived outdoor, dressed like the old time people, eating what we cooked and the brave men fought against the roman army:)
Si ca sa simtim ca a venit vara, maine vom pleca spre un alt soi de festival, cu muzica electronica de data aceasta, unde Primitiv Entertainment va tine ateliere de pirogravura, pictura pe lemn si tir cu arcul.
EN: We had a great time, we interacted with many curious visitors, who wanted to know more about the dacians, about Romania. It's been a weekend of joy and fun and we're looking forward for the next festival.

EN: Although the first part of this year went by quickly, filled with new people, interesting projects and events, like a sort of buzz that accelerated the natural rhythm of the days, since a while I find myself surrounded by a sweet and pleasant feeling of "slowliness", that doesn't make time go by slower, but gives me peace and quiet. I still paint a lot, but I have better results and no more feeling of deadline or some sort of punishment if I don't finish "in time". We spend so much time being "busy" as if we have to always do something, not only to simply be. Yes, it's wonderful to be productive, to create, to build, but all these with a measure: the measure of wanting to and feeling inspired, not the measure of "have to".
EN: So, I take more time for myself to read, to sit in the sun, to take a nap in the afternoon or simply to daydream, without feeling guilty. I discovered a very useful and interesting book: "A massage for everybody: pressopuncture", written by the doctor Sabin Ivan, that offers the means and techniques that can be used by anybody to improve and maintain their health. If we probably gave more time to ourselves, the sufferings would be more rare and easily treatable, without sophisticated medicines or medical interventions. It's so easy to massage the inside of our palms or our soles, for no more than 10 minutes or, even better, to have somebody close to us do this. I remember my mom used to ask me to massage her shoulders or hands and she always used to do this for me, especially when i was ill.
