The Freedom of Art in Difficult Times
My alarm clock goes on, I turn it off, and I turn around in bed one more time. When I decide to get off the bed, I feel lost and desperate. Also, I don't feel relaxed. "Why do I feel this way? Why do I wake up like this?", I ask myself while turning on my nightstand light. Maybe when I sit down behind the laptop to write something, I will feel why I’m feeling lost. Most of the time, my feelings will come while writing. I sit at my bedside, rub my eyes with my hands to make myself awake, put my hands in the air and pick up all the clothes I need to get dressed.
Can You Promise Everything Will Be Fine?
Lately, I hear the sentence ‘It will be fine' a lot. This sentence gave me the thought of whether everything can actually be fine? Will everything be fine? Or will just a part be fine? Why do we need to put each other at ease with 'it will be fine'? Do you feel better? Do I feel better?
The Deep Feeling – What You Feel
You walk through the streets in your village, maybe in the Big City. You look around you, seeing the buildings, low and high, houses and apartments, schools and companies. You pass them all, and you don’t think about how they look. You don't think about what that takes to build it there; how it has been built. Walking further through the new park - that has been built three months before, to ensure there will be more tourists there.
Believe In Yourself and Chase Your Dreams
Have you been asked, as a small kid: “What job do you want to do when you are grown-up?” Or: “What do you want to do when you are an adult?” Or: “What job do you think you will do when you’re grown up?” I have been asked a million times.
"Radio, music, poetry, stories, all mine."
"Radio, music, poetry, stories, all mine." These are the activities I do in my life. I make a local politics radio program, I play the violin in an orchestra as well, preparing myself for an audition for the conservatory, and I write stories and poems. That is what I do and that is what I love to do in my life, and it all belongs to me.
