The Earth we walk on

Everyday, when we’re going to work or when we’re taking a walk in the park, our feet are stepping on the ground of Mother Earth. Even if it’s covered in concrete, it’s still our Earth, changes by us. It consists of dirt, mud, rocks or fine sand on the beach.
The Earth is round and we live and move around like little ants, taking advantage of what we’ ve discovered and still discovering new things. The Earth is giving us more than enough so we can enjoy our lives.

I need Water

water

  • A blue cool wave is coming towards me as I feel the breeze of fresh salty air through my hair. I dive into it and I start swimming, moving my arms through the powerful current of the sea water. I love the feeling. There are places where I feel colder water and other places with warm water.
  • AsĀ my son is deeply asleep I go and prepare myself a bubbly warm relaxing bath. I feel the water healing and hydrating me. It relaxes me. All my stress goes away and I feel so thankful for… water.
  • My son drinks a lot of water. And when I say a lot, it means a lot. I try and diversify with some tea or natural juice. He screams “NO, I want water!”. I hoped I’d be more like him. I don’t drink as much water, or I must confess I don’t drink water at all.

My Creative Mood – illustrating my own logo

blogger

Hello everybody!

I am in a very creative mood and wanted to create something new. I want to create a logo for this blog.

You probably noticed that the illustration includes my boy and my cat šŸ™‚ How could I leave them out of this? Well, I couldn’t. My boy is my inspiration and my cat, Fluffy, is always around looking for attention.

If you want to see how will this drawing end up, please return. I will post more images of the steps.

Bucharest Nightclub Fire – Hell on Earth

You probably already heard of the tragedy that hit a club in Bucharest on friday evening, October 30. If not, here is a brief summary on the news.

I woke up Saturday morning and, as usual, I was zapping through the TV channels., as I heard the NEWS: ‘HorrificĀ Fire in a Nightclub – At least 27 people have been killed”. I was stunned. At this time, there are 30 people dead from the fireĀ and 180 people are being treated in hospital. Some of these people have severe burns. There were 400 people attending the concert.

This is the worst incident in Romania in the last 20 years and it occurred during a concert by a rock band called Goodbye to Gravity. Two guitarists have died and the other members are in hospital with severe wounds from the horrific fire.

The band used a pyrotechnic display that went disastrously wrong. The polystyrene decor was on fire because of the fireworks used during the show. This caused a massive panic through the people.Ā It was like a Halloween Movie (especially that this happened on full Halloween Season). Burned people trying to get outside screaming for help, asking for their friends that remained stuck in the nightclub. All of them were trying to stay alive.

I am now reflecting at my college years, when I went clubbing almost every weekend and I am asking myself: What if this happened to me? One of the nightclubs where I was going had only one door to get in and out and poor construction standards. What if I was in the same situation? I myself being a mother am reflecting and I feel these parents grief from losing a child in such a horrific way.

What did the witnesses, doctors and firemen saw there? Ā I don’t even want to know, really. I think it was like a zombie horror movie.

And just to think that one of the songs of Goodbye to Gravity was entitled “The way we day”.

May God be with them!

Who am I?

Have you ever asked yourself Who am I? What makes me happy? What is my goal in life?

Well, if you did and found the answers to these important questions, then you are one of the lucky ones.

It’s all about discovering who you really are. I’m still discovering. I know that I am creative in a lot of forms. My creativity is the thing that drives me day by day. I express my creativity in my drawing, my painting and my writing. I express my creativity through art. I express my creativity through… me.

I will reveal in this blog everything I am and am not. It’s title already suggests it. I am the proud mother of a two-year-old precious boy, the wife of the most loving husband, the daughter of the most kind and supporting parents and I am surrounded by the most wonderful people and friends.

This is my personal blog. You will find here details from my day to day life, my parenting battles, my money-making ideas.

So, who am I?
