Day 348 – Crazy day


I spent my entire day reflecting about everything: my life, my choices, my friends, my family, my world. I looked at my daughter chasing bubbles all morning thinking I could look at her playing forever. I watched her hand going into mine when we took the tram home. I felt her kiss coming down my cheek after I gave her a snack. Yes, I could do all this forever.

I came home and looked at the piles of articles to write, waiting for me, grinning at me. And so I worked and I wrote and I read and then I wrote some more until I had nothing left to write. I had a fun evening, I had insightful conversations with the people in my life and then… Then I was left empty, empty of myself, empty of everyone else, empty of words, just like a cleaned out drawer.

Tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow I will share my passion and try to form words that will inspire others. Tomorrow I will have to fill in that void and not empty it until the sun sets over Mars. Tomorrow never exists…


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.
