Synchronicity

Synchronicity is the experience of two or more events that are apparently causally unrelated or unlikely to occur together by chance and that are observed to occur together in a meaningful manner. The concept of synchronicity was first described in this terminology by Carl Gustav Jung, a Swiss psychologist, in the 1920s.

The concept does not question, or compete with, the notion of causality. Instead it maintains that, just as events may be grouped by cause, they may also be grouped by meaning. A grouping of events by meaning need not have an explanation in terms of cause and effect.Read More

A little bit to the south

I may have mentioned some years ago ( back when I was little , my viewers were 100% Romanian and the purpose of the blog was more of impressing a certain beautiful girl), about what lays just beyond the Bulgarian border.Now years went by like summer storms, things have changed a lot but stayed the same and here we are again.
A rock’s throw away from the summer beach party center of Romania, Vama Veche, the sand turns into rocks , the water becomes clearer and gains color. Gone is the floating garbage, gone is the drunk crowd stepping on each other, gone all the people and all the cars. Perfect spot to enjoy a couple of days away from everyone and everything, to take a deep dive, do a bit of rock climbing or just enjoy a morning walk. All this still close enough to the party for those allergic to solitude.
To be continued… Some day.Read More

The lost world

“Hey, long time no see. I hear you’re into photos now, I meet up with your brother a couple of days ago, told me all about it”

Sometimes I meet people on the street.  Strangers. They come to me with a friendly look and ask me how I’ve been, what’s up.
Ipretend to know them. I know I should and there is a bit of familiarity to them, but I cannot place it in time and space. I go along for a while.  I ask them how they are, what life brought to them  and hoping this way they might say something to make me remember.
They are neighbors from where I grew up, school or high school colleagues , long time friends, kids with whom I spent a whole childhood. All of them obliterated out of memory and out of existence.Read More

The wild north

Ok, I removed the teaser post on the reason of being too “fitos” 🙂 . So, here starts the photo series from my 8 days trip to Iceland. The most beautiful, wildest and natural place I have ever seen. No word can describe the feeling of being there, witness to something probably very similar to what the world looked like millions of years ago. But I’ll come back to writing another time.
Here is lake Jökulsárlón, the biggest glacial lake in Iceland, a recent one that came with the fast melting of the  Vatnajökull glacier, and still growing in size. The ice comes sliding from the mountains (you can see the river of ice in the first picture, in the background), onto the lake and then the ocean.  One of the most beautiful sights on earth, especially on sunset. Like I said, the sun didn’t actually set, being a polar day, it just went a little bit under the horizon.

This is it…

…Europe’s final meters of land. Right there in the first photo, I’m standing above them, in the westernmost place, Cabo da Roca, Portugal.  It kind of feels strange being there where the old continent ends

And not far from there but far from the tourist’s track is praia da ursa, one of the most beautiful places in all Portugal and also one of the most inaccessible.  Google earth tourism seems fun until you find out just how difficult it is to get to a certain point that looked good on a photo. And praia da ursa is one of those places. On the old road that leads there there’s a sign that said “danger, unsecured beach. For emergency call  112”. But the fact is there is no signal down there,  is standing  below a few hundred meters of rock, very hard to climb. In fact the beach is mostly deserted, in the middle of the season the only people there were a couple having innocent, beautiful sex. And no, I’m not showing you the photos 😀 .

Primordial ground

Undeva pe langa un mic orasel din Germania numit Leipzig zace un loc uitat de lume, parca aflat la inceputul timpului, cand viata abia incepea sa isi faca apritia sub forma unor microorganisme intr-o supa chimica, sau la finalul lui, cand asta e tot ce a mai ramas. Ceea ce vedeti in imaginile de mai jos reprezinta o fosta exploatare miniera in zona unui orasel german numit Leipzig, o rana adanca lasata in voia pamantului, sa isi adunse sevele si sa o vindece in sute de ani. Gropile din pamant au fost umplute de apa, ce s-a amestecat cu carbunele dand o culoare rosie suprarealista intregului peisaj. Privelistea e o cuprinsa de o liniste incredibila, neexistant picior de om sau animal pe kilometri intregi.

Cape Kaliakra

Un alt loc foarte frumos de pe tarmul Bulgariei, unul din putinele locuri de unde se poate vedea apusul de soare deasupra marii.

Bulgaria

Prima serie dintr-o mini excursie 60km de-a lungul tarmului Marii Negre in Bulgaria. Probabil locuri ca cele de mai jos sunt mai putin cunoscute, cunostintele romanului despre litoralul bulgaresc se rezuma la Nisipurile de Aur. Foarte bine, asa sper sa si ramana.
