"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Thoughts of the day

Not often I have the privilege of having few days off.  This was one of those days.

As I opened my eyes this morning I heard the rain tapping on my windows. After spending some time organizing my future days(phonecalls, writing lists, planning what I’m going to do) I drank my cup of tea and I started to listen to Luna Amara, and so my day became wonderful.
I took some time to translate the lyrics for a few of their songs and I reblogged an older post with translation. I feel that these guys are so very talented, poetic, profound, Romanian.  Maybe that’s why I love them so much.

If you ask me what I like doing the most in my spare time, the answer is not complicated. I enjoy listening to music, reading a lot, translating, writing. I like exploring a lot because I’m as curious as a cat (and cat owners know what I mean 🙂 ) And if I would have even more time I would start painting again. I could not get into the mood to paint again since my teenage years. I guess I could not concentrate on it because life  has consumed me in different ways.

I love exchanging thoughts with you, my friends, so here I am. Still there are many thoughts that I keep for myself, as you all do. I usually smoke alone, I am as quiet as the leaves of a tree. Some say it is not healthy. Yes, I know. But neither is this crazy life. So I will stick to smoking my thoughts.

We are all probably here to connect to others, to reach out for more information, more inspiration, more positive energy, to get a sort of recognition that we miss, or to disconnect from our every day life and the stress and the bitter experiences. It’s a good question, why are we all here? Is it just an accident? Is this life only a stage in evolutionism as some say, or are we here for a higher purpouse? Are we here by chance or by the hand of destiny?

The thought that passed my mind all day was: “We are all interconnected”. Time and space become a relative thing when we share thoughts and get to know each other. We are interconnected and I love and respect you all. I thank you all for visiting my blog, for sharing thoughts, for debating with me, for asking, for giving. After all, this is your blog, not mine.
I tried to imagine you all, distant yet near. Some that I know, some that I imagine. How was your day? What were your thoughts? What were your worries?
As a great friend of mine says “I hope life was kind to you today!”
This makes me smile because life is not only a summ of unpredictible things and disasters, but also an image of our own decisions, emotions and gestures. If we would realize it life would get sweeter.


500 words from the heart

  1. Bien dit! Your words are like music. Connected yes, for some reason “life” has brought us together for a reason(s) yet unknown and for better or worse we are here. Better in my opinion. I don’t believe that life is a group of happy accidents, I like to believe we have purpose and function in our roles in this existence. And yes I hope the world has been kind to you today 🙂 and you to it.

    “Why are we here?”
    Well that is a question that has haunted me for as long as I can remember. It has become a bit of an obsession for me. A very honest and open-hearte post this, Ela. Inspiring words, as always. I don’t have an answer – not yet – but I have a suspicion that you’re onto something. The answer can hopefully be found in the connections.
    If you do get the time painting again sounds like a lovely idea!

    • I think that each and every one of us is here -in this life and here – at World Press for a summ of reasons. We are all very complex beings and we have all different experiences, backgrounds, feelings, talents, plans, needs, hopes, dreams…
      If I am onto something only God knows, I only know that life is full of surprises and I hope that the rest of the surprises left for all of us will be nice ones.
      As for painting… oneday I will paint again, but I have to do other things before. The time is short, it has no patience and life is tough… But maybe in between we can find some time for colours in all this black and white… 🙂

        Finding colours, I like the sound of that!

      • 🙂 You have your own colours. Each soul has his own light , darkness and colours.

    “an image of our own decisions, emotions and gestures. If we would realize it life would get sweeter.” I could very well say that within those words. you damned near nailed it.

    Thank you for sharing this with us =)

    • Thank you very much, dear T., I am honoured if you share my vision. It’s only my vision. I live surrounded by people that think differently. 🙂
