A Summer Place 🦋🌞🌊


One of my favourite music is that from the 50’s and 60’s. Imho I feel that that was the golden age of music. The sound just pours in my heart. Here is an example of how hauntingly beautiful a song can be. I don’t think I will ever hear something as beautiful as this now. But never say never. 🤔

And don’t forget to dance…

Te iubesc!


– Te iubesc!

– Cui mai zici asta!

– Tuturor oamenilor!

– Da? Ei vezi! Toti sunteti la fel!

– Tuturor oamenilor le spun ca te iubesc numai pe tine!

Nothing Good Gets Away


Today we celebrate Dragobetele, which is the Romanian equivalent of Valentine’s Day. To mark love and this special day, I have decided to make a post about it. And I thought of John Steinbeck’s letter to his son, that impressed me very much and it has some nice advice about love. It is not comprehensive, you have to listen to your own heart, and mind sometimes, live your own love story, read as much as possible and enjoy the journey too, with kindness, understanding and wisdom. So here it is:

“New York
November 10, 1958

Dear Thom:

We had your letter this morning. I will answer it from my point of view and of course Elaine will from hers.

First—if you are in love—that’s a good thing—that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you.

Second—There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you—of kindness and consideration and respect—not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.

You say this is not puppy love. If you feel so deeply—of course it isn’t puppy love.

But I don’t think you were asking me what you feel. You know better than anyone. What you wanted me to help you with is what to do about it—and that I can tell you.

Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it.

The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.

If you love someone—there is no possible harm in saying so—only you must remember that some people are very shy and sometimes the saying must take that shyness into consideration.

Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also.

It sometimes happens that what you feel is not returned for one reason or another—but that does not make your feeling less valuable and good.

Lastly, I know your feeling because I have it and I’m glad you have it.

We will be glad to meet Susan. She will be very welcome. But Elaine will make all such arrangements because that is her province and she will be very glad to. She knows about love too and maybe she can give you more help than I can.

And don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens—The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.

Love,

Fa”

What Love Is


An answer that is closer to a real definition of love. Though I have to say that my favourite ‘definition’ is that from Paul, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV:

“4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

Other than that it is anything but Love.
