Anul acesta a fost inceputul maturitatii pentru mine si fiecare hop depasit m-a adus mai aproape de liniste si intelegere. Cu plans, cu impotrivire, cu nemultumire si depresie, dar toate sentimente pe care le constientiez si le tin in frau fara sa ma copleseasca.
Anul acesta ma simt norocoasa si savurez viata asa cum mi-am facut-o...si realizez ca e buna tare!
EN: I sometimes stop and wonder on the date (not the exact one, while I don't really check the calendar often) and the many months that went by. This year was like the first one for me and for us and time stopped and started again on the 27th December last year.Since thenit feels like each day was a full lifetime, measured through the eyes of a little baby that is turning into a chil and a man. It's amazing to watch the fast evolution and as tiring as it feels, I'm fascinated and delighted. Although for me it has been a hard time and I still fight fear of attachment, my selfish ego that wants to convince me that life will never be the same (it's true, but it's not necessarily bad), I enjoy every moment. Somehow I start to understand that we are living a great adventure and it's more and more fun. And I slowly find my rhythm and realize that before Carol I was wasting quite a lot of time doing usless things. Now I still have enough time to paint, to read, to take long baths, to walk and even since some weeks to lay in bed and daydream.
This year was the beginning of maturity for me and each obstacle conquered got me closer to peace and understanding. With crying, fighting, unhappiness and depresion, but all these are feelings that I embrace and keep under control.
This year I feel lucky and I enjoy the life I built...it's a good one!

EN: The two of us and since some months, us three, are really big fish fans. If it were to be honest, we'd eat it every day. Carol has also found his taste in marine beings and we try to feed him tasty and healthy fish every time we eat too. Most of the times we look for the wild fish (makerel, wild salmon, sea wolf, fish caught in the Danube Delta) and sometimes we like to experiment with new tastes (that's how we disvovered how tasty Black sea fresh mussels are). So we were glad to read in the local newspaper that some fishermen from the Danube Delta were invited at the village museum to cook traditional fish soup. Even more interesting was that they cooked it with fish caught from the museum's lake.
Since we came to this city we promised to try as many activities as possible and we prefer the ones that are suitable for babies (meaning day time events, at least for me and Carol:)

EN: Time goes by (or we feel it this way) and every day, if we pay attention, can be a fun adventure. This is what we learn watching baby Carol explore the world and each new place makes him happy, be it a chair under which he hides and then coming out is a great deal, be it a closet, a taste, a person he knows and haven't seen since yesterday...for him it is exciting and fun.
EN: Us, grownups, we act like we are thousands of years old and seen and done everything. And life becomes tasteless and we live like robots. I ;ike to go to the supermarket and each time try something new. To be honest, I like this aspect of globalization and capitalism: I can taste foods, exotic fruits and vegetables, drinks from the other side of the world and enjoy other cultures. This time we found Nori algae on discount and cooked suhi. We'll definitley try it again, it's delicious:)
Asa ca de azi, sa profitam si de micile momente, nu sa asteptam doar intamplari marete si extraordinare care sa ne uimeasca si sa ne bucure!
EN: As a curiosity, I found out from the radio that today is Toilet Day:) And meditating a little at this necessary and useful place, I realised it can also be a pause moment. Perfect place to read something light, like this compendium of old newspaper and magazine articles.
So, starting from today, let us enjoy the little moments too and not only wait for the great and extraordinary adventures to make us happy and amazed!

Probabil ca n-am fi avut altfel ocazia sa ajungem pe unul dintre cele mai frumoase meleaguri pe care le-am vizitat: Valea Hartibaciului.
EN: A few days ago we were invited by the Job in Sibiu organization to help them with one of their projects: the school in Zlagna village, where they built a playground for the poor children who study there.
It was a great opportunity for us to travel to one of the most beautiful areas we've been to: the Hartibaciu river Valley.
EN: The lovely autumn sun blessed our journey and we got the chance to view wonderful landscapes: old fortified churches hidden between hills covered in colored forests and the tall snowy mountains in the background. Dreamy!
EN: At school, our mission was to paint the entrance walls, so we chose to transform the day, the night and the four seasons into some fantastic fairies. The children watched the whole process and were delighted.
