High Hopes

A tribute to Pink Floyd
High Hopes

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun
Along the long road and on down the causeway
Do they still meet there by the cut
There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world


Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
go down this road we've been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever
"Hey, is that Charlie? yes... Hello Charlie... great"

Women- powerful or not?

Today I read many silly articles for women, you know the kind: advice for your relationship, how to meet the perfect man, how to have passionate sex and so on. I know some impressive career women who despite their position, financial status, power, when they meet a man they like, they lose their mind and emotions go wild. From this moment on they become like any other women, maybe even more emotional and needy. They start having some serious security issues. They need their men to hold them, rub them and tell them how special they are for providing them moral, mental and emotional support.

There's a real irony here when you think of all the women who go out of their way to show how independent they are. These are usually the same women who become extremely insecure once they finally fall in love.

I am sure this article will not be liked by women and maybe some will call me bad names. But we need to face the facts. I admit to be somewhat similar to the women I previously talked about. But I try to find a balance in everything I do, this means to have a personal life, career, relationship, friends and so on. And if I would give any of the mentioned areas too much priority then the balance will be ruined which is not good. Of course nobody can find a mathematical equation to keep the perfect balance. Sometimes one or more areas of our lives will be neglected for other(s) but the important thing is to try and even plan a balance.

I think no matter what prince Charming we have found along the way, we should not change our lifestyle, our preferences and in the end not change ourselves. We need to realize that we are not so independent as we would like and as we state. Of course we achieved financial, social and professional independence but we don't have to neglect our emotional dependence which will always make romantic, silly and childish creatures from us, with bursts of tears and tantrums when we least expect it.

Therefore let's spread our wings, face our femininity, admit we are not completely independent, smile and cry, be happy and sad! Be true to ourselves!

Snow carnival

It looks that Romania will have a snow carnival this year, 13th edition at Cerbul villa in Paraul Rece-Predeal. The participants will see video projections of clubs, will hear theme songs and see parades and dances in carnival costumes. I think this event can be quite interesting given the nice location. If one gets bored with the carnival, ski and snowboard slopes are available.
The schedule of the event is here.

Armin again

Last year I went to Armin van Buuren concert held in Bucharest and organized by The Mission.
At that time I had no clue about who this dj is, what his music is all about. My boyfriend had invited me to go with him because he is a fan and therefore I went. It was a great concert and from then on I am listening almost daily to Armin van Buuren mixes and A State of Trance. This year I will definitely go on 24th February to his concert at Sala Polivalenta.
The warmup will be done by DJ Vania and Remy.

New Year has come

It seems that New Year's Eve has come and gone suddenly. I can't really tell the exact moment when I realized we've entered the new year but then again I never cared too much for the standardised celebrations meant to be compulsory for everybody. The best practical thing I find for New Year's celebration is each person's private recollection of the past year, with the ups and downs, good and bad memories, things we've wished we would've done differently, inspired and stupid decisions, new people in our lives and so on. These thoughts guide us in a way to the new year, with fresh confidence in ourselves and what the year will bring. No matter how many supersistions we can find in each culture related to this event, the important thing is to keep our faith, confidence that somehow everything will be better.
Therefore, let's all enjoy 2007 and live every moment as intense as we can!
