Nu merg la referendum

Copilul meu este si va fi educat sa iubeasca oamenii indiferent de rasa, religia, culoarea, averea, statutul sau orientarea sexuala. Copilul meu va vedea filme sau piese de teatru si va citi intr-o zi romane catre trateaza subiectul homosexualitatii. Copilul meu va intalni cupluri formate din persoane de acelasi sex tinandu-se de mana in strainatate, chiar daca nu se va intampla asta la noi in tara prea curand. Homofobia, la fel ca si rasismul, se invata. Sunt convinsa ca nu ar fi nici socat, nici dezgustat, nici nu i-ar fi frica, nici nu s-ar simti amenintat, nici nu ar uri, asa cum nu a facut-o atunci cand a vazut oameni rugandu-se la Buddha in calatoriile noastre, si nu la Isus, ori cand s-a jucat cu copii de toate nationalitatile si culturile. El va fi invatat sa-i iubeasca si sa-i inteleaga si pe cei care iubesc diferit fata de parintii lui. Iar eu il voi iubi pe el indiferent de alegerile pe care le va face in viata. Nu inteleg cum vorbim atat de mult despre “iubirea neconditionata”, dar tocmai aceasta valoare nu reusim sa o aparam.

 

EN: My child is and will be educated to love all people, no matter their race, religion, color, fortune, status or sexual orientation. My child will see movies or theatre plays and will someday read novels which talk about the topic of homosexuality. My child will meet same sex couples holding hands, while abroad, even if this  probably won’t happen very soon in our country. Homophobia, just like racism, is taught. I am sure he would be neither shocked, nor disgusted, nor wouldn’t he be afraid, or feel threatened, or hate, just like he didn’t when he saw people praying to Buddha on our travels, and not to Jesus, or when he played with children of all nationalities and cultures. He will have learned to love and understand also those who love differently than his parents. And I will love him no matter the choices he may make in life. I don’t understand how we speak so often about “unconditional love”, but it’s precisely this value that we can’t seem to be able to protect.

O toamna cu chef de viata

Toamna este ziua mea si a unora dintre cele mai bune si vechi prietene ale mele, asa ca intotdeauna mi se pare ca acest sezon are un aer de prospetime. Dupa vara sufocanta vin deodata: o racoare placuta, apusuri senzationale, soarele superb de octombrie si sezonul tricoturilor, paturicilor de lana si a vinului rosu. E ceva tare romantic la acest anotimp, nu poate sa nege nimeni asta!

 

EN: Both mine and some of my best friends birthdays are in fall, so I always feel like this season brings a breath of fresh air. After the suffocating summer we all of the sudden have: a pleasant chilly temperature, sensational sunsets, the beautiful October sun and the perfect season for knitwear, wool blankets and red wine. There’s no denying that there’s something very romantic about this season.

Coltul neplictisitor

Inovatia si creativitatea isi au de cele mai multe ori originea in largirea surselor de inspiratie. De foarte multe ori in moda, de exemplu, creatorii si-au gasit inspiratia in domenii complet adiacente, precum arhitectura sau… botanica si zoologie. Aceste intersectii pot avea rezultate surprinzatoare, unice. Exact acelasi pincipiu a stat la baza uneia dintre cele mai dragute provocari pe care le-am primit vreodata, care poate fi sintetizata prin intrebarea: “Ce au in comun ciocolata si design-ul interior?”

 

EN: Innovation and creativity often come from broadening your sources of inspiration. Very often in fashion, for example, creators have found their inspiration in areas completely adjacent, like in architecture or… botany and zoology. These intersections could have surprising, unique results. This exact same principle was the foundation of one of the nicest challenges I have ever received, which can be summarized in the question: “What do chocolate and interior design have in common?”

33 ani

Azi implinesc 33 de ani. Imi imaginez cum ar fi o carte a carei eroina traieste fix viata mea de pana acum. Ar fi un roman cu o intriga puternica, data de copilaria mea atipica. Ar fi pasaje pe care le-as putea cataloga desprinse dintr-un univers fantastic. Altele, mai degraba absurde. Dar unde duce povestea asta? Unde duce?! Pai hai ca de acum inainte sa umplu paginile numai cu momente epice. Punctul culminant il simt aproape. Promit sa am curaj sa traiesc viata asta din plin.

 

EN: Today I turn 33. I imagine what a book about my life would sound like. It would be a novel with a powerful twist, given by my atypical childhood. There would be passages in it which might sound like they’re taken out of a fictional universe. Others would be more likely absurd. But where does this story lead to? Where is it taking me?! Well, from now I want to fill its pages only with epic moments. I feel like the peak point is near. I promise to have the courage to live this life to its fullest.

Toamna se numara copacii

Sunt foarte mandra de mine caci, datorita cererii facute catre primarie in luna mai, pe strada mea sunt acum 9 copaci noi si al zecelea salvat de la defrisare. Merg mai departe si lansez invitatia de a va alatura campaniei #CopaciidepeStradaMea.

 

EN: I am very proud of myself, because thanks to the request I made to the Mayor’s Office in May, there are now 9 new trees on my street and the tenth one is saved from being cut down. I am taking things further and inviting you to join the campaign #TheTreesOnMyStreet.

De-ale lui Perfectu’

Acum fix o saptamana eram la noi la mare. Acolo am avut o discutie foarte interesanta cu Vlad despre… impaiere.
