Day 206 – The finish line


With only three more interviews to go, The human behind the artistis starting to take a clear shape and direction. I’ve been working hard lately to make a strong introduction for each of the artists involved in this project and the more words I place on paper, the more proud I am of the outcome.

It’s been such a beautiful journey for me and besides meeting a lot of inspiring people with amazing life stories, I have also learnt a lot about myself because of them. Slowly, all the interviews will disappear from my website and the next step will be taken for them to be known by a wider audience. I want to thank all of the artists who wanted to be involved in this project for granting me the privilege to hear their stories and memories and for inspiring me in moments when maybe I didn’t believe I could go on doing everything I am doing.

Whenever a chapter is about to end in one’s life, melancholy makes its way into the soul and cuddles with all the beautiful memories. In my case, all the coffees I had and will still be having with new and amazing human beings, all the things I could identify myself with, all the jokes and dark humor about being starving artists and all the painful stories I had to hear, have only made me a better listener and an even more intrigued story hunter. But until then, a new interview awaits to be recorded this Sunday and another one next week. Next stop, Mark Abouzeid and believe me, you don’t want to miss his story.

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.
