Inca mai sunt aceeasi visatoare

...aceeasi care am fost intotdeauna, cu toate ca acum in cantitati mai moderate. Visez cu ochii deschisi catre destinatii mai mult sau mai putin indepartate. Ultima locatie pe care "am pus ochii" este continentul negru, Africa, pe care aspir de ceva timp sa il vizitez.

Anul acesta ma gandeam ca nu voi merge in nici o parte, ci doar acasa, la Bucuresti, eventual la rude in Gorj, insa se pare ca pot surade din nou, imi pot face planuri de vacanta, am noi perspective prezente acum(profesionale) ce imi permit ca visurile mele sa existe!
Probabil vom merge in Ins.Canare, la Tenerife sau Palma de Canarias, si probabil in Elvetia sau Germania...mai este timp pana in august!

Uneori ca un vis sa se indeplineasca, e suficient sa il ai.( U. Zybura)

Age Quotes

I've chosen some good quotes about age, that are quite inspirational.

"When your friends begin to flatter you on how young you look, it's a sure sign you're getting old." Mark Twain (1835-1910) U.S. humorist, writer, and lecturer.

"You are young at any age if you are planning for tomorrow." Unknown Source

"What makes old age hard to bear is not the failing of one's faculties, mental and physical, but the burden of one's memories". W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965) British novelist and playwright.

"Every man is the creature of the age in which he lives; very few are able to raise themselves above the ideas of the time". Voltaire (1694-1778) French writer and historian.

"We must not take the faults of our youth with us into old age, for age brings along its own defects." Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832) German poet, novelist and dramatist.

"To be happy, we must be true to nature, and carry our age along with us". William Hazlitt (1778-1830) British essayist.

"The person who has lived the most is not the one with the most years but the one with the richest experiences. "Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) Swiss political philosopher and essayist.

My 27th year just started...

"Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read."
Francis Bacon (1561-1626) British statesman and philosopher.
I still can't believe it !!! I am 27 ! In fact 27 and a 3 days old. But it's suspicious because I don't feel at all as a woman at that "precious" age.

However, we did enjoy a good bottle of red wine brought from Bucharest, my lovely Spanish friends and boyfriend really liked the taste of it, they said it can compete with their "local" Rioja.

Happy Many Years, Stef"!

Sunt triste ele...

Ele, animalele de la zoo! Sunt asa triste, cand le vezi in spatii inchise( chiar daca nu custi, ca in Bucuresti), aici la Madrid sunt "aproape" in libertate. Insa Gorilele sunt probabil cele mai afectate de conditiile arbitrare in care traiesc.



Cu toate acestea, delfinii imi par cei mai veseli, mai ales spectacolul oferit de ei, i-am vazut si acum un an, insa anul acesta defilau si dansau pe muzica lui MIchael! wow !! A fost incredibil....MI-au placut asa mult, ca la plecare mi.am cumparat o cana mare galbene cu delfini , pentru a dejuna zilnicele cereale cu lapte.
Sper ca animalutele sa fie sanatoase si bucuroase aici, cu toate ca as prefera sa le vad in libertate, alaturi de "amicii" lor, "de acasa"....
Mi-au placut eleganta pasarilor flamingo, culoarea roz-salmon, cred ca nu se simteau incomode acolo, erau in libertate, nu in custi.

Probabil de aceea vreau sa merg in Madagascar....sa vad acei lemuri haiosi in habitatul lor natural, liberi. Lemurii, aceste primate haioase, sunt foarte rapide, le-am vazut alercand si sarind dintr-un copac in altul. Ce simpatici sunt!

Visez la Africa ...





"If there are dreams about a beautiful South Africa, there are also roads that lead to their goal. Two of these roads could be named Goodness and Forgiveness.
" Nelson Mandela
De mult, foarte mult timp, visez la Africa...visez sa vad acele minunate dune de nisip din desertul Saharian, de asemenea savana populata de zebre, gingasele girafe si gazele, si alte vietati salbatice, visez sa ajung in Kenia, Africa de Sud, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Uganda,etc..in special as dori sa vad partea de sud a continentului, cu toate ca si Nordul probabil ofera multe calatorului...iar Centrul..puf, destul de periculos, dupa parerea mea, in special tari in care terorismul e in floare( Nigeria, Congo, Gabon...)...

De curand am fost la cinema si am vizionat Invictus (dir: Clint Eastwood, actori: Morgan Freeman, Mat Damon), si am fost intr-adevar inspirata de catre Mandela, de cum a reusit sa ierte tot ce a putut primi din partea albilor, implicit cei 27 ani de inchisoare, de felul cum a luptat impotriva apartheid-ului si cum a reusit sa devina presedinte dupa ce a castigat primele alegeri prezidentiale "curate" ale tarii. Cel mai mult insa m-a surprins sa stiu ca a incercat si reusit sa uneasca atat albii cat si negrii intr-o unica tara! Speranta avea si optimism la fel!

"I dream of an Africa which is in peace with itself. "
Nelson Mandela
