Day 292 – My world

Someone asked me yesterday what does my world look like? My world never stands still. My world is a wonderful place filled with both joy and sorrow that keeps me going, that keeps me alert. Boredom has no place into my world, I hunt it down and kill it. Looking back, facing the path backwards, a smile

Day 290 – A different love holiday

As I was saying here, we have a different day for celebrating love; kind of like Valentine’s day just a bit different. The holiday is called Dragobete and the legend says that he was the son of Mother Dochia, which stands for the main character in the pagan myth related to spring arrival and the end of

Day 289 – Decisions

I don’t like deciding things. It’s one of my most awful nightmares. I don’t like deciding how and when to change houses, cars, furniture, pets, computers and so on. I get to attached to things. I name them, talk to them, tell them my life story trying in a way to make them welcome into

Day 288 – Never ending project

Day 285 – Echo

Day 284 – 6 things I love about Florence

I fell in love with Florence long before I became one of its residents. In time my reasons have changed and the touristy ones are long gone and left behind now. So, how does Florence manage to keep us trapped into its spiderwebs? These are six of my reasons: 1. In less than a month you are already experiencing

Day 283 -Who’s going to Mars?

Ever since I came here, I kept calling this place Mars. Maybe because it was a new place, or maybe because I felt like an alien here: new rules, new culture, new everything. Now I hear people are actually going to go to Mars in 2024. That scares me a little. To be honest, after
