Day 126 – Odd mood


This will be a rather odd entry because I have no idea what to tell you about. Should I write about last night and the nice dinner and wine we had in the now famous cemetery, or about the fun we had dancing with Ephia on the little path among the tombstones? Or maybe I should talk about how things are starting to move so fast that we can barely keep up and decisions have to be made before we can even analyze them properly.

It is said that when you are busy, things are working out for you. It is said that when you are busy, you have no time left to be happy. It is said that if you are doing what you love, you begin mixing happiness with the need and hunger for that thing. And it is also said that no matter what you do or don’t do, you will always want something else that seems more exciting and interesting.

There was a time when I envied people who went to work everyday, when I had too much free time, but they kept telling me to enjoy my lifestyle, working from home, because they would kill for what I had. I didn’t believe it then, but when I started going to work and actually left my house to do that, I understood what they meant. We will never be comfortable with what we have and as we say in my country, the neighbor’s goat will always be prettier than our own (don’t judge, we have funny sayings in my country hahahaha) and even if we get our hands on something even more beautiful, we will still want more or miss our old life.

That being said and written, I will end my strange blog entry by wishing as I do every Sunday to have a perfect one and get ready for a new, hopefully better week. Over and out!


About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
