Love at first sight – the “simple” love?

February 21, 2014

love smileSometimes your eyes meet the eyes of someone else and you just know – this is it,  THE LOVE! You can’t take your eyes off and if you’re lucky, it’ll last for a long time. This is the kind of love I believe to have with my husband.

What I find most fascinating about this love is, that It’s a very simple kind of love. In this post it’s suggested that there are three kinds of love: “I love you because”, “I love you if” and “I love you in spite of”.  So I thought about our love and it’s none of these three, it’s just a simple “I love you”. In case of  doubt it’s a “I don’t know why, but I know that I love you. I don’t need a reason to love you, I just need to look into your eyes and I know that I love you”. This is how love at first sight works for me, from the first day on. (more…)

That’s not only a very good song from Moby, it’s kind of true – we are all made of star dust. Not only we, everything out there. That’s kind of really nice – it’s the circle of life in big. Someday our sun will explode and make star dust for other lifeforms someday…


Is it only revolution when there is blood on the streets?

February 7, 2014

There were lots of revolutions lately and in the few past years. There was the arab spring, the protests in Turkey, now there are some angry Ukrainians etc. … Well, also there were some Bulgarians on the streets since June (more than 8 months already). While the protests in Turkey and Ukraine are presented in the media very detailed and receive quite the support from foreign media, the protests in Bulgaria were not that present in the media. The important foreign media only reported about the protests in Bulgaria when there were escalating and there were injured demonstrators. As this was not that often, the media didn’t reported that much about this protests. After all – there were lots of other demonstrations and protests with much more injured demonstrators.

Isn’t it only fair to report more about the protests where more people get injured? Kind of yes… but doesn’t that tell people, that only a bloody news are news? At least that’s the message I get from the media and that’s kind of the wrong message, isn’t it? Why do we learn to solve problems without violence as children, when later on violence is all that counts? Isn’t “Eight months of peaceful protests in Bulgaria” a good headline? Not really, it’s just not that emotional as “100 injured in protests in …”

It is only logical that we react very emotional to violence, but that is simply because they shouldn’t occur on a daily basis, it’s something very extraordinary that normally shouldn’t occur that often. So the right message would be to show off peaceful protests as a good example, to report about them, simply to show that it is an option. I believe that it is the more mature option, it is the option that really stands for change as it doesn’t do things like the government but in the way we teach out children – don’t treat others like you don’t want they to treat you. But also the more difficult option, because you need lot’s of endurance to achieve your goal. So dear demonstrators in Bulgaria – I wish you all the endurance you need to achieve your goals!

PS. as Justine from Smiling shortly wrote, at least the european government is showing some interest in the protests and is trying to understand what’s going on, which is really difficult as there is no real freedom of speach in the Bulgarian media…
