Every Day New




 Timpul trece (sau ni se pare ca e asa:) si fiecare zi, daca suntem atenti, poate fi o aventura distractiva. Cam asta am invatat privindu-l pe Carol cum exploreaza lumea si fiecare loc nou il bucura, fie ca e un scaun sub care se ascunde, iar apoi e o intreaga aventura sa iasa de sub, fie un dulap, un gust, o persoana cunsocuta pe care n-a mai vazut-o de ieri...pentru el e palpitant si amuzant.

EN: Time goes by (or we feel it this way) and every day, if we pay attention, can be a fun adventure. This is what we learn watching baby Carol explore the world and each new place makes him happy, be it a chair under which he hides and then coming out is a great deal, be it a closet, a taste, a person he knows and haven't seen since yesterday...for him it is exciting and fun.
Noi, adultii, de multe ori ne purtam ca si cand am fi trait milenii si ne-am blazat, pentru ca am vazut tot, am vazut. Si asa viata nu mai are niciun gust, ajungem sa traim pe banda. Mi-ar placea in fiecare zi sa incerc ceva nou, chiar si o mancare nemaimancata, asa ca de fiecare data cand ajungem la supermarket (sincer eu ma bucur de globalizare si capitalism din punctul asta de vedere: oricat de profan ar suna, putem sa gustam lumea, la propriu; avem acces la fructe, legume exotice, bauturi din cealalta parte a lumii...), cautam sa luam ceva deosebit. De data aceasta am gasit alge Nori la reducere si am facut sushi. Si, sincer, o sa tot facem, pentru ca e absolut delicios:)

EN: Us, grownups, we act like we are thousands of years old and seen and done everything. And life becomes tasteless and we live like robots. I ;ike to go to the supermarket and each time try something new. To be honest, I like this aspect of globalization and capitalism: I can taste foods, exotic fruits and vegetables, drinks from the other side of the world and enjoy other cultures. This time we found Nori algae on discount and cooked suhi. We'll definitley try it again, it's delicious:)
Ca o curiozitate, ascultand Radio Romania Cultural, am aflat ca azi e Ziua Mondiala a Toaletei:) Si am meditat putin la locul asta util si necesar, care poate sa insemne si cateva minute de pauza si respiro. Un loc numai bun de lecturat ceva lejer, cum e "Reflector peste timp"al lui George Ivascu, o culegere de fragmente de articole din ziare si reviste din alte vremuri.
Asa ca de azi, sa profitam si de micile momente, nu sa asteptam doar intamplari marete si extraordinare care sa ne uimeasca si sa ne bucure! 
EN: As a curiosity, I found out from the radio that today is Toilet Day:) And meditating a little at this necessary and useful place, I realised it can also be a pause moment. Perfect place to read something light, like this compendium of old newspaper and magazine articles.
So, starting from today, let us enjoy the little moments too and not only wait for the great and extraordinary adventures to make us happy and amazed!

The Rich and Beautiful Fall

 Zilele trecute am fost invitati de Asociatia Job in Sibiu sa ajutam la infrumusetarea scolii din Zlagna, proiectul lor de suflet.
Probabil ca n-am fi avut altfel ocazia sa ajungem pe unul dintre cele mai frumoase meleaguri pe care le-am vizitat: Valea Hartibaciului.

EN: A few days ago we were invited by the Job in Sibiu organization to help them with one of their projects: the school in Zlagna village, where they built a playground for the poor children who study there.
It was a great opportunity for us to travel to one of the most beautiful areas we've been to: the Hartibaciu river Valley.
 Norocul ne-a suras sub forma unei zile calde si insorite de toamna, a carei lumina ne-a rasplatit cu privelisti de vis: biserici fortificate ascunse printer dealurile acoperite cu paduri de rubin si muntii incarcati cu prima zapada, in fundal. De vis!

EN: The lovely autumn sun blessed our journey and we got the chance to view wonderful landscapes: old fortified churches hidden between hills covered in colored forests and the tall snowy mountains in the background. Dreamy!

 La scoala am avut ca misiune pictarea peretilor din gangul de la intrare: am ales sa personificam ziua, noaptea si anotimpurile si copiii, care au urmarit pas cu pas procesul au fost incantati de rezultat.

EN: At school, our mission was to paint the entrance walls, so we chose to transform the day, the night and the four seasons into some fantastic fairies. The children watched the whole process and were delighted.

Patience


N-am banuit si nu ma asteptam ca perioada aceasta a proaspetei maternitati sa fie atat de marcata de cunoasterea de mine. Si chiar daca fiecare zi pentru mine a fost sub semnul unei lupte, un zbucium si o pendulare intre agonie si extaz, fara nicio exagerare, incet invat sa ma bucur de ea si sa primesc fiecare zi ca pe o lectie necesara, o investitie intr-un viitor linistit. Si nu doar invat, ca pe o lectie dintr-un manual pe care o stiu pe de rost, ci chiar inteleg intern ca totul curge. Azi, dupa nopti de oboseala, plansete, zbatere si negura, imi dau seama ca e bine; ca fizic sunt bine si pot duce mult, desi pentru mine socul a fost mare, mai ales ca pana acum viata mi-a fost lina, previzibila si comoda; ca lucrurile se schimba mereu si situatiile, oricat de urate si grele par, nu sunt pentru totdeauna; ca rabdarea nu e doar un cuvant ci o practica continua: "nu pana la prasit, ci pana la sfarsit"; ca pana la urma alegem sa pastram in fotografii doar momentele placute, asa ca si in memorie tot ele trebuie sa ocupe locul, restul clipelor sa fie mici secunde care oricum trec.

EN: I didn't suspect and wasn't expecting that this times of fresh motherhood would be so filled with awarness. And even if every day for me has been a struggle, between agony and extazy, with no exageration, I slowly learn to enjoy it and receive each day as a necessary lesson, an investment in my peaceful future. And it's not just learning this by heart, like a lesson from a book, but it's about understanding that everything flows. Today, after nights of tiredness, crying, darkness, I see that I'm fine; that fizically I am ok and I can handle it, although the shock was a great one for me who I was accustomed with a confortable life; that patience is not just a word, but a continuess practice, till the very end; that after all we choose to take photos of the pleasant moments, so those are the times that should fill our memory.

A Moment


For the Love of Forest

 Cel mai frumos moment, pe care il asteptam cu bucurie in fiecare toamna, e sezonul ciupercilor. Imi place mult padurea toamna, mai ales dupa ploaie, cand pamantul emana parfumul frunzelor amestecate cu pamant si crengi.
Anul acesta a fost mai secetos, dar prima plimbare ne-a adus roade bune: am gasit tot soiul de bureti comestibili si ne-am umplut plamanii cu aerul proaspat.

EN: One of the best moments of tthe year is the mushroom season, which brings joy every autumn. I love the forest, especially after the rain, when the smell of dried leaves, dirt and branches lingers in the air.
This year has been quite draughty, but we still found many types of edible mushrooms and the first autumn walk was such a pleasure.


Ce nu am  gatit imediat, am pus la pastrare pentru a savura si la iarna gustul padurii: antipasti de hribi, palaria sarpelui uscata, zacusca de ghebe, vinetele si galbiori, trambita- piticului si hribi uscate.
EN: What we didn't cook to eat right away, we canned so we can enjoy the taste of the forest in winter too.
