I did not realize that 3 years passed since the last time I wrote on this blog. I always have so many ideas to write about, and never the discipline to do so, and I am always hopeful that something will change, but what I have come to realize is that the only thing that needs to change are my priorities. That is why I cannot promise I will write more often, as I am not sure I am ready to do that. However, I needed to write about Barcelona. I felt like I owe this post to the city that owns my heart for almost a decade now.
Since the last time I wrote a lot has happened in my life, and I went through a metamorphosis of a sort… I had a very intense year with many (MANY) challenging experiences and times when I thought I would just go on and end it all by jumping from my window (or a bridge or any other tall place really). Some friends went out of my life, others came in it, but my outlook on life started to change, and is still in the process of transformation. And as you all know, change of any sort can be stressful and scary. Continue reading
India is the land of many contrasts – the phrase I kept on hearing the moment I bought my ticket to this extraordinary country. My family was worried I would die from some sort of infection or a mosquito bite, my friends kept on admiring my adventurous spirit and me… Well I didn’t really see anything adventurous about this fact. For I wasn’t going to be there alone, and I knew deep in my heart that nothing bad would happen… I was just excited to see an old friend, and experience his country through his point of view. And so, late August 2013 I hopped on a plane, and after excruciating 24h of flying and waiting at the airports I was finally there. Continue reading
The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page, said St Augustine a long time ago. But it seems that people don’t really understand that. We go through life not realizing how wonderful the world is. I read a blog a few years ago, written by an acquaintance I met in Australia, that was about how much we loose if we do not travel and explore the world. Unfortunately I couldn’t find it now, but if I manage to find it, I will share the link. As for me, I agreed with her views on traveling and with St Augustine’s. Continue reading
Well It’s been a while since I wrote. But in the true spirit of New Year’s resolutions, I wanted to write again, in hope that I will write more often in the next year. Continue reading
These days I’ve been thinking about happiness. The question What is happiness? is one of those existential questions on which many have tried to answer, but no one has succeeded in compressing it into one frame. And we, people, it seems, seek and need that frame in which we can put things, events, other people. Continue reading
I’ve been thinking about how to start my blog for a while now… What should it be about? What do I want to write about? What are the subjects that interest me? And the answer appeared – Dreams, at least for now. But not my dreams I have at night (don’t worry, I won’t bother you with my dreams, except if they are really interesting). I want to talk about dreams we have, about our hopes, and wishes, striving in life and with life. What do we strive for? What do we hope for? Is there any point in having dreams and hopes in a country like Serbia? Continue reading
