Fly away

Zilele acestea au fost un amalgam de ganduri. Unele colorate, pline de viata si speranta, altele innorate cu senzatia de gol infinit. Mi-am dat seama ca o data ajunsa la limita dintre iarna si primavara, pur si simplu mi-am pierdut rabdarea si pare ca soarele, despre care stiu sigur ca ne va incalzi in curand, nu se va mai arata niciodata. E greu dupa iarna lunga, acum cand in aer pluteste miros de primavara, sa mai rabd frigul sau ploaia si as vrea sa ies in padure si sa nu mai intru in casa:) Se cheama astenie sau depresie sau tristete pur si simplu, stiu si cred ca fiecare an isi are o perioada de genul acesta, dar acum parca o simt mult mai puternic. Ieri a fost cald si mi-am petrecut intreaga zi afara: am pregatit straturile in gradina si chiar am semanat rucola, salata verde, patrunjel, usturoi, apoi am citit toata ziua, mutandu-ma dupa soare. Starea de sfarseala a disparut dupa 30 de minute de oxigen si soare si m-am binedispus cu fiecare gura de aer proaspat. Avem atat de multa nevoie sa petrecem timp in aer liber, in vant, soare, ploaie si uit mereu lucrul acesta si ma trezesc dupa o zi de stat in casa, obosita, consumata si fara perspectiva. Vreau doar sa dorm. Cred ca aerul si oxigenarea sunt cele mai importante "medicamente" si ne incarca bateriile, ne limpezesc gandurile, ne redau viata!
EN: These days were a mixture of thoughts. Some colorful, alive and full of hope, others dark and with a sense of endless void. I realized that once I made it to the edge between winter and spring, I simply lost my patience and it seems that the sun, which I know for sure it will warm us soon, will never show it's face again. It's hard after a long winter, now when the air smells like spring, to endure the cold or the rain and I wish I would go to woods and don't ever go inside again. Each year brings times like this, but the feeling is so much stronger this year. Yesterday it was warm and I spent the whole day outside: I prepared the garden, planted some ruccola, lettuce and parsnip, than read all day long, gravitating around the sun. The feeling of void dissapeared after 30 minutes of oxygen and sunshine and my mood got better with every sip of fresh air I took. We need so much to spend time outdoors, in the wind, sun and rain and when I forget this, at the end of a day spent in the house I feel tired, consumed and lacking perspective. I just want to sleep. I believe that fresh air and oxygen are the best "medicines" and they charge our batteries, clear our thoughts and make us alive!

Spelling


"Ceea ce se stie sigur e ca, pentru majoritatea amerindienilor, cuvantul are o putere ascunsa, ca el se cuvine inteles perfect, rostit numai atunci cand e neaparata nevoie;(...) << Nu zeama ierburilor bauta de bolnav e tamaduitoare-observa un cercetator al traditiilor poporului Crow- ci cuvintele rostite in soapta, intr-o anumita ordine si cu o anumita intonatie.>>" "Cantecul bizonului-din literatura pieilor rosii"
 Cuvintele au puterea de a crea lumea din jurul nostru si orice gand rostit modeleaza realitatea si ne influenteaza relatiile cu cei din jur. Astazi, limbajul a devenit foarte complex si folosim multe cuvinte atunci cand comunicam, dar de multe ori transmitem atat de putin prin ele, parca am abuza pur si simplu de vocabular si functia vorbirii. Socrate aplica un algoritm foarte simplu legat de ce le spunea altora si ce ii asculta spunandu-i: informatia transmisa a fost verificata de cel care i-o comunica? este un lucru bun? ii foloseste sa stie acest lucru? Daca raspunsurile erau afirmative, atunci il interesa. Eu incerc sa pun in aplicare aceasta metoda si sa rostesc cuvintele atunci cand au sens cu adevarat.

EN: "What is known for sure is that for most of the native americans, the word has a hidden power, that it is suitable for it's meaning to be perfectly understood, spelled only when it is needed; (...) <>" " The song of the buffalo- from the red skins' literature"
Words have the power to create the world around us and any thought we put into speech, shapes the reality and influences our relations with the people around us. Today language has become very complex and we use many words when we communicate, but most of the times we say so little through them, simply abusing this speaking function. Socrates had a simple algorithm that helped him filter what he told the others and what he wanted to hear from them: was the information verified by that person? was it a good thing? was it useful to him to know that? If the answers were yes, than he would be interested. I try to apply this method and speak the words when they mean something to me.

Gaia

Azi am implinit 30 de ani si o parte din zi mi-am petrecut-o rememorand cu placere toti anii care s-au scurs, incarcati cu experiente minunate, oameni de poveste, vise, locuri vizitate si multe, multe amintiri care mi-au ramas in suflet. Sunt recunoscatoare pentru viata pe care mi-am ales-o, n-as schimba nimic si sper ca ce urmeaza sa fie plin de invataminte si aventuri. Cumva simt ca de acum incepe cu adevarat marea bucurie si traiul constient, ca tot ce am acumulat pana acum a fost pregatirea pentru viata si ca in continuare voi calatori cu ochii deschisi inspre lume.
Experienta maternitatii e unul dintre lucrurile care mi-au adus prezenta si intelegere mai mare decat orice altceva trait si ma ajuta in fiecare zi sa imi depasesc fricile nefiresti si sa ma eliberez de gandurile care sunt mostenite si nu sunt cu adevarat parte din mine.
Asa ca azi sarbatoresc viata, clipa si bucuria!

EN: Today I turned 30 and part of the day was spent joyfully remembering all the years that went by, filled with wonderful experiences, special people, dreams, great places and many, many memories that will stay with me. I am grateful for the life I chose, I wouldn't change anything and I hope that was comes next will bring adventure and many precious lessons. I somehow feel that the great joy and conscious living are starting now, that all that I lived so far was the preparation for life and that from now on I will travel with my eyes open to the world.
Motherhood is one of the things that brought acknowledgment and understanding more than any other experience I had and it helps me every day to conquer the unnecessary fears and to break free from the thoughts that are not really mine.
So today I celebrate life, the moment and joy!
