"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


Romanian Black & White / Alb & Negru Romanesc


Dinu Lipatti

“Tell me, if I would catch you someday
and kiss the sole of your foot,
you would limp a little bit afterwards, isn’t it,
in fear not to crush my kiss?… “

Nichita Stanescu

Live With A Smile


I cannot say that life was simple,
So far it was complicated like hell.
I wish it was simple, black and white
But it was  made out of a million shades of blue
Of answers that never came and countless sleepless nights.

Today I open wide the windows of my soul,
Let the rain wash away my sorrows and
Breath the color from the bloom outside.
I embrace the spring and continue to live
Today, with passion and a smile.

Good Night World

I’ve always been in love with Lipatti. Maybe many of you have no idea who he is. I will say “is” even though he is in heaven. For me he is and always will be the most brilliant pianist I’ve ever heard. He is Romanian,  his music is amazing, unequaled so far. A beautiful man, very intelligent,  passionate,  talented and calm. A man that carries in the tip of his fingers and in his soul divine grace.

As I step into the night I listen to Lipatti again.

May your night be calm and your dreams be sweet.

Good night.
