HELLO

Fresh started "Words" is the place where I write down some of my thoughts, ideas and beliefs.

THINKER-copy

It is mostly known as a personal blog. This is a place where I try to express myself.

 Writing can be an awesome    therapy. Thank you for reading!

"Words can be said in bitterness 

and anger, and often there seems

to be an element of truth in the

 nastiness; and words don't go 

away, they just echo around."

We all have our demons,

 obsessions and moments 

of inspiration and

creativity.

 

 

Even though we don't always realize it. And we will all succumb to them one way or another. Each of these brings us challenges and at the same time, opportunities. We can't change or avoid them, but we can teach ourselves ways of dealing with them. 

These moments of sadness, anger and happiness bring a subtle connection with the universe and that's why they are sources of inspiration, teachings and wisdom.

I also had mine and what you will read below is a result of those moments. Some of them are in my native language, Romanian. When I was thinking of translating them into English, I realized that by doing so, their meaning, melodicity, and magic, will be lost.

TIP: you can always use Google Translate to get an idea of what it's about.

I am not a poet and therefore I like to simply call them thoughts; whispers of the old gods and my ancestors shadows from another dimension into this reality.

Enjoy.

A little bird
On the brach
Just above my head.
A blink, and it's gone.

 

°02

 

The drumming rain
A mighty thunder
In the dark night
A concert.

 

°03

 

Round light
In the night
Above
The howling wolf.

 

°04

 

You can see it and it's gone.
You can think it and there's none.
A mind trick.

 

°05

 

Above us all
A grey blanket is spreading
The storm is coming.

 

°06

 

Daily mud
makes us forget
The beauty of clear water.

 

°07

Grey sky is crying
big winter tears.
Looking through the window glass
outside, the water is dancing.

 

°08

 

Fear. We are afraid
Most above all
of a meeting with ourselves.
We are all nothing but fugitives.
The more we run, the more afraid we are.

 

°09

 

Sometimes
we feel the urge
of punching silence
in the face.

Sunt umbra omului din umbra.


Cel pe care nu-l zaresti dar il vezi


daca te opresti o clipa si privesti


Mai de aproape.


Sunt umbra care sta in umbra,

umbrind cu umbra lui,

umbrele celorlalti.


Sunt umbra care nu vorbeste,

sunt umbra care doar zambeste.


In linistea lumii mele de umbre,

vorba e doar zgomot,

zambetul inseamna lumina.


Si mai inseamna sa vorbesti tacand,

fara sa tulburi

linistea umbrelor ce te-nconjoara.

 

°11

 

A fi sau a nu fi...

Aceasta-i intrebarea

Ce si-o punea pisica

Privind incuietoarea.

 

°12

 

Felie de rotund pe cer
In noaptea viselor tarzii,
E Luna. Al nostru giuvaer
Martor iubirilor pierzii.

Un nor ce se pravale peste ea
Acoperindu-i fata luminoasa,
Vesteste zorile de zi
Sfarsitul tesaturii de melasa. 

 

°13

 

"O, tu iubire a vietii mele!"
Graia-nteleptul barcagiu
In timp ce se-ntorcea acasa,
Imbatranite-i lampe cu fitil.

 

°14

Sunt zenul fara de maestru
Si sunt maestrul fara zen.
Sunt si fractalul fara tinta,
Si tinta fara de indemn. 
Sunt incalceala dintre vise,
Si ordinea fara de sens.
Sunt si frumosul, si uratul
Toate invalmasite in consens...

It's not about being good at

something. It's about being

good to yourself.

 

 

On the personal side, I am in the process of reflecting on how yoga changed my life and I am very interested in hearing other people's experiences with yoga. I started doing yoga three and a half years ago to (re)connect with my body. I started by watching yoga videos on youtube but it took some time until it "clicked" and yoga became indispensable to my life. 

In the last 6 months, I have been trying to explore other aspects of yoga and trying a bit more mediation. What I like about yoga is its diversity; you can have strong yoga, restorative, mediative according to your personal circumstances.

Most of us come to yoga with a whole lot of misconceptions about what yoga is. What is Yoga? It is a state of self-realization, and it is also the practice that we do in order to experience this state. These are all tools that help us observe the fluctuations of our minds, and to get a little closer to the state of self-realization.

Thank you, Barbara Dawson.

That was a big influence on me.

If the deep sound and

rhythms of the traditional

Japanese taiko drums

have always spoken

to you, why not try your

hand at taiko drumming

with a dynamic class?

 

 

Most recently, I also embarked on a totally new and exciting journey, driven by the same will of discovering myself and having a bit of fun on the way...

Taiko is an ancient Japanese form of percussion using large drums. In taiko drumming the performers are not merely using the drum as an instrument; they are aiming to form a connection between the drum and themselves, the art becomes a part of our personality, a way of being and life expression.

The word "taiko" is used to refer to any Japanese drums as well as to a specific form of ensemble drumming. Taiko performance is a combination of many components including technical rhythm, stance, synchronized movement and carefully choreographed presentation. It is dynamic and powerful but at the same time graceful to watch.

Kumo (雲) in Japanese means "cloud" and is taken from the Japanese phrase "kōun ryūsui" (行雲流水) in full, which reads, "To drift like clouds and flow like water."               

The phrase is often linked with Buddhism, and carries the meaning of "To take things as they come". 

Thank you, Jane + Jean! Arigatogozaimashita.

why not try your

hand at taiko

drumming with

dynamic class?

 

 

Most recently, I also embarked on a totally new and exciting journey, driven by the same will of discovering myself and having a bit of fun on the way...

Taiko is an ancient Japanese form of percussion using large drums. In taiko drumming the performers are not merely using the drum as an instrument; they are aiming to form a connection between the drum and themselves, the art becomes a part of our personality, a way of being and life expression.

The word "taiko" is used to refer to any Japanese drums as well as to a specific form of ensemble drumming. Taiko performance is a combination of many components including technical rhythm, stance, synchronized movement and carefully choreographed presentation. It is dynamic and powerful but at the same time graceful to watch.

Kumo (雲) in Japanese means "cloud" and is taken from the Japanese phrase "kōun ryūsui" (行雲流水) in full, which reads, "To drift like clouds and flow like water."               

The phrase is often linked with Buddhism, and carries the meaning of "To take things as they come". 

Thank you, Jane + Jean! Arigatogozaimashita.

Japan Day is the largest Japanese cultural festival in New Zealand, which aims to further friendship and mutual understanding between New Zealand and Japan by sharing traditional and contemporary Japanese culture with local New Zealanders as well as Japanese people living in New Zealand.

There is no other event that you can experience and explore the Japanese culture in one day. 

Hosted by: Japanese Society of Auckland Inc.
Co-host: Consulate-General of Japan in Auckland.

"[...] On the stage, we have Taiko drums, Yosakoi Dancers, Martial Arts performances, and this year we have specially invited an awesome duo from Japan, Kenji x Keisho, the Taiko drum and Shamisen performers in addition to our regular performers, the traditional Japanese dancer Rumi Sasaki."

After a year of intensive training, this year I had the privilege of being part of the Kumo performance team for the Japan Day Festival. The live experience was - like all personal experiences - exciting, extremely intensive and unique! I really enjoyed the thrill before the performance and the connection with the audience.

My special thanks for this to my dear Kumo Family :)

What teaches us

 

 

There will be a time where things do not turn out as great as you want them to. There will be bad days or sad times where you can't do anything about it except for letting it happen. Just like the bad times, there will also be good days. The bad times help us know what its like to be happy.


A haiku is traditionally a Japanese poem consisting of three short lines that do not rhyme. The origins of haiku poems can be traced back as far as the 9th century.

A haiku is considered to be more than a type of poem; it is a way of looking at the physical world and seeing something deeper, like the very nature of existence. It should leave the reader with a strong feeling or impression. Take a look at the following examples of traditional and modern haiku poems to see what we mean.

Here are three examples of haiku poems from Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), considered the greatest haiku poet:

An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
splash! Silence again.

Autumn moonlight-
a worm digs silently
into the chestnut.

In the twilight rain
this brilliant-hued hibiscus -
A lovely sunset.

Here are seven examples of 20th-century haiku poems:

From across the lake,
Past the black winter trees,
Faint sounds of a flute.
- Richard Wright

Lily:
out of the water
out of itself
- Nick Virgilio

Ground squirrel
balancing its tomato
on the garden fence
- Don Eulert

Nightfall,
Too dark to read the page
Too cold.
- Jack Kerouac

Isn't it wonderful to know that such a rich tradition has lasted the test of time? The evolution of haiku might be perceived as a natural process, like anything else in life, but a dedication to its authenticity has preserved its core principles.

While master poets in the 1800s, such as Issa, wrote their haiku in the traditional 5-7-5 pattern - if read in Japanese - the premise was still the same as it is today. These master poets contemplated small snippets of time, used imagery in their language, and sought out a sense of enlightenment in their prose.
