Some persons have asked me these questions, with different wordings. They see me as a very sad person, even though I don’t think that that’s the case. A few posts ago I quoted a person I admire for those words: “Sad is like happy, but for deep people.”
But, the thing is, that I’m not always sad. I just like being alone. I am more of a meditative person, a thinker, rather than someone who rushes to do everything. I like to question and observe and I like to dream. I like being alone with my thoughts.
When I need it, I can disconnect from the “world” and I can be alone in my thoughts. If I do something that I like, I am absorbed by it and I do it with passion. After all, everyone should do what they like.
Few were the times I was exploding with happiness, yet few were the times I was terribly sad. People don’t like winters and autumns, because they are “dead seasons”. But I do like the way they are, quite meditative.
And if it is something that you should remember about me is that I would rather enjoy a long lone walk among autumn’s trees than being with a large group in a summer’s day.
Well, not really, but I am really close! So, I have all these ideas for books, but none were good for a debut book. It got me mad that I didn’t know what to write as a debut book, but, I’m not sure how, I now have an idea. It will be awesome! I will try to make daily updates on the book’s being and whatever else! Thank you guys!
Today, 164 years ago, Mihai Eminescu was born, by his name: Mihail Eminovici. He worked as a journalist and he is considered by many the greatest poet Romania ever had. Compared to him, poets like me are just little babies that want a little attention. He represents one of my inspirations and he makes me proud that I am Romanian. Unfortunately he dies at 15th June 1889, at the very young age of 39. I won’t go into details, but he represents the soul of our nation (among some other things…), so I thought to share to you some of his creations, translated. Of course, the translations are just faulty copies of the original in our language. I didn’t make them, so the credit goes to whoever made them…
O mother, darling mother, lost in time’s formless haze
When l shall die, beloved, do not beside me mourn,
Eve on the hill
Dreary the horn sounds in the eve on the hill,
Holy and pure passes the moon on the sky,
Tired with their toil, peasants come back from the field,
Ah! very soon quietness steals over all,
Cheek press’d to cheek, there in sweet ecstasy we,
(1885, Translated by P. Grimm)
And should it be together that we shall die one day,
“O remain, dear one, I love you,
You, who like a prince reclining
Stay, for where the lapping wavelets
Oh, I see you wrapped in magic,
See you thus amidst the ripples
Thus spoke the woods in soft entreaty;
Now though even I roamed that country
(Translated from Romanian by Corneliu M. Popescu)
Happy New Year everybody! I am not used to making those, so I will try to be short. I wish for everybody to have a nice new year and I hope that at least some of your wishes will become reality. If you wish, you can even make new year resolutions, and that’s what I will try:
-Begin writing that book that you have dreamed so much about
-End the school with a bang, go to high-school as a much much happier person.
-Tell everybody what you think about them (that’s going to hurt… them )
So, what about you? What are your new year resolutions? I can’t wait to see you guys next time, with a new post.
