The Means and The Ends

Love forever love is free/ Let's turn forever you and me/ Windmill, windmill for the land/ Is everybody in?  (Gorillaz - "Windmill Song")

Love forever love is free/ Let's turn forever you and me/ Windmill, windmill for the land/ Is everybody in? (Gorillaz - "Windmill Song")

I went past this windmill on numerous occasions. On my way to school, on my way back from school, going for walks or on my morning jogs. However, only in this picture does the profoundness of its solitude really manage to impress me. Only now does this old lonely windmill drive her message home. People cross the bridge, coming and going places. Maybe they sometimes gaze at the clock by the bridge and wish they could go faster so they could arrive on time. They seldom don’t even take notice of its spinning arms, don’t bother looking. I know I often times didn’t. And yet it was there. The bridge and the windmill were always my „means” of getting to different places. Always the means, never the ends of my action. And that just makes me think of how many „lonely windmills” we may all be missing every day…

Johnny Was Here

I always asked myself where all the cartoon characters of my childhood wound up… Now I know that some of them decided to reside in the same type of campus rooms that I used to live in. And one of them actually chose the very same city… A campus room is a student’s low-scale universe. When you are thousands of kilometers away from everything you call your own, your room becomes the shrine of everything you are and everything that means something to you. ... Mai mult

Open-Ended Invitation

As narrow as our life scope may be, we are all awaiting something. Every person carries with him or her hundreds and thousands of „welcome”s, of „please sit down”s, of „can I see you again”s, of „I love you”s, but are in too many cases too shy or too scared to whisper, let alone spell them out. If science would evolve to the point where it would be possible to take pictures of the inside of our very hearts, I know that for so ... Mai mult

Bucurestiul lui…

Oare cum arata Bucurestiul lui? Oare e trist, cu oameni care il lovesc cu piciorul, sau dimpotriva…vesel, cu oameni care se opresc pentru o clipa sa-l mangaie pe capsorul mic, ce priveste cu mirare lumea? Oare e un Bucuresti unde domneste foamea sau unde apare din cand in cand cate un os aruncat de un cetatean milos? Raspunsul se gaseste doar in ochii lui… ... Mai mult

Oaza de asfalt

Atunci cand privesc in sus, in inaltimea interminabilelor blocuri cafenii, am uneori senzatia de apasare, de cusca urbana intre asfalt si beton…
Atunci cand privesc invers insa, am senzatia stranie si contrara ca pomii inverziti par sa castige lupta cu betoanele si ca blocurile par doar bucati de lego ratacite intr-o mare gradina. Daca ar fi sa aleg o singura perspectiva, as alege-o cu siguranta pe a doua… ... Mai mult

Demonstratie disperata

Ma intristeaza demonstratiile chinuite de sex-appeal pe care prea multi se sparg in figuri sa le faca in orasul meu natal, Bucuresti. O curea „fake” din plastic nu va striga niciodata „la moda”, ci doar „disperat”. ... Mai mult

Bunastare

O priveliste amuzanta si de neconceput cu douazeci de ani in urma. Candva, romanii nu precupeteau nici un efort pentru a-si ascunde „bunastarea” obtinuta prin reteaua invizibila a PCR – pile, cunostiinte, relatii. Astazi, totul se obtine, dar mai ales se „poarta” mult mai la vedere. ... Mai mult
