„Be Good”

How wonderful the simple things are!

Today was one of those simple days. A bit grey, a bit cold, but still so very wonderful. I have been working daily, way too many hours for the past two months. Today, I stopped. I actually did take my day off, my only day off. I enjoyed my new toy. (New) oldies, but goldies:

I listened to this album several times. Gregory Porter’s „Be Good” and „Just Like Children” are now glued to my heart. Today was just about being. Listening, watching, enjoying the ‘right now’. Today was about colour and music and dancing and joy.

Go for a walk!„, the doctor said. I did, and while this splendid music was playing in my mind, I found more colour, more music, more dancing and nature’s immense joy among leaves, birds, clouds and some sunny rays, an orchestra majestically conducted by the almighty wind.

Raze de toamnă / Autumn Rays

COR: Right Before I Left

Ieri, înainte de a pleca de la Cluj, am condus până sus la Cetățuia. După-amiaza de toamnă însorită se plimba leneșă peste frunzele căzute și peste pleoapele somnoroase ale puținilor trecători de la acea oră. Chiar înainte de a pleca, la câțiva pași de mașină, o inimioară era așternută la picioarele mele, încercând să își țină de cald cu razele soarelui de-acum rămas fără putere. Aproape că am călcat pe ea. Am observat-o în ultima clipă. M-am aplecat cu blândețe și am fotografiat-o.

Nu ar trebui niciodată să călcăm pe inimi. S-ar putea frânge. Chiar dacă par a fi din piatră…

Yesterday, before I left Cluj, we drove up to Cetățuia. The sunny autumn afternoon was walking lazily over the fallen leaves and sleepy eyelids of the passers-by. Right before I left, a few steps away from my car, a small heart was lying at my feet, trying to keep warm in the rays of the sun which had already lost its strength. I almost stepped on it. I noticed it at the last moment. I gently bent down and photographed it. 

We should never step on hearts. They might break. Even if they seem to be made of stone…
