Day 285 – Echo


I feel just like that, like an echo. Everything I do or say, either good or bad, comes back to haunt me. Or is that a boomerang? Same thing 🙂 .

The sun being back into my life every day helps a lot. I feel better, more normal and finally I am sticking to my writing schedule. Now I hate Ephia’s afternoon naps. Yes, they give me the opportunity to get some work done, but overall what I would really love to do is get her dressed and go out to have some fun. Even our garden smiles back at me through my bedroom window, showing off with its beautiful green and alluring stone benches. I am abandoned or trapped inside the house with nothing to do but work. Sounds fun right?

On days like this one, I dream about a weirdly built cottage in the woods, where I can watch the lake from a glass wall inside my writer office. Or maybe the beach house, or the small room I rent in one of those cave hotels, or a water bungalow in Maldive… so many fantasies, so many dreams all with one thing in common: an ideal place to just write and dream some more. Ah! Meanwhile, coming back to Earth, I should settle with my bedroom and maybe just wish for a new computer so I could use the garden as a replacement for all the above.

Have a nice weekend everyone! Don’t forget to dream! 🙂

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.
