A Moral Dilemma

The unlucky few that follow my blog :P probably had noticed that I was absent for a while from this here virtual and wonderful world of blogging. I have a good reason for that. It's not that I don't like blogging anymore or that I have grown tired (god forbid, I love it more and more every day! :D). It is in fact cause I wanted to help a friend in need. I know, the world is slowly becoming a place where there is less and less people that you can call friends, and therefor, you need to cherish the ones that you have made in your life.

My friend fell in love with a girl that is already in a relationship. It wouldn't be new for him, except this time, she fell in love with him as well. From the start it was clear that they wouldn't end up together, and it was fine, with both of them. Now, he says that he misses her more and more and it seems like the occasional meets that they have are not enough. He needs her more and more. And now, he doesn't know what to do, because he feels so helpless. I guess there is actualy no moral dilemma here, but I started with that tittle because it seemed apropriate when 2 people are sneaking around! :D

What I told him was that if they both decided to enjoy something, then they should do it while being free, like those eagles we saw back in September (click the photo to enlarge), because you can truly own the world only if you are prepared to lose it without any regrets... Should I have told him something else?

Behind the Trees

Have you ever had the feeling, the one that tells you that you just wanna get away from everything? Hide from everybody? I think I did. Last year it was. On that one hike I'll never forget. I felt I could just hide behind the trees and wait for everyone to leave. Then, I'd be free at last! I won't have anyone to answer to, nobody to obey... alone and free.

I stood behind the trees, just for a while. But then, I remembered all the things I was leaving behind and just went on, on the trail. And it's a good thing too. A lot of good things happened since, that are directly connected to those events. I'm guessing what I'm trying to say is - don't try to get away. You can never get away from your self...

A Philosophical Question

To blog or not to blog? That seems to be the new philosophical question. Almost everybody I know, either has a blog or is reading a few of them on regular basis! All of my friends have blogs, although some of them are not telling nothing about them (they are using aliases because they are afraid or ashamed of the things they say). That is actually how I came to join you all in this blog-universe! Nowadays not having your own blog is like not having a phone number 10 years ago... or something. I don't know, I've never been good with similes. :P

By the way, I love this swing on the photo. I never have enough time to sit on it, cause whenever I am there, I'm being asked to stay off it, there is more important things to do, bla-bla-bla. But I still love it though. :)

Can't stay away

I had no PC access for a while, and it was frustrating beyond imagination! I did not realize that bloging could be this addictive. I just love it! :D If anybody wonders, yes, I had a great time while I was away, but I am going to tell you all about it in some of my next posts. For now, I want to keep it short and simple. :)

This is a photo I borowed from my cousin (thanks dude! :D). And it is not here without a purpose. I've came to realize in the last week that the posts with a few words and a beautiful picture in them, the short and simple ones, always made me feel the best. And because I love this photo, I am going to share it with the world and just thank all the good people that came here, wishing to be friends with me. Hugs! :)

Oh, the joy of the weekend!

This is the front yard at my cousin's home. I just visited his blog, and I saw that he had posted some cute pictures of him when he was a baby, so I remembered the time I was at his place, and when I took this. It was early fall, so it was warm, it was hot actually. Oh, how I long for that time. I hate the cold. :(

The weekend came. No more work until Monday. Oh, good. I can now blog throughout the whole day. I don't know if it's just me, but bloging thing is contageous. I can't stop since I started. I visit blogs, I share thoughts with people, I write comments, I post stuff, and on top of that, I have milions of things I want to say next. Please tell me it is the same with everyone, that I am not a freak!

Until next time, hugs for everybody. :)

My mountain trip!

My first post from home. This is a big moment for me. I didn't prepare a speech or anything, so I'll just thank all the friends that I met in thees short few days since I decided to start bloging. Without your support, I would have given up, probably the first day. But... 4 days later, and we are still here. Cheers. :)

This is a photo of me, on september 7th, at the beginning of the climb on mount Korab, to the highest peak in Macedonia, Big Korab at 2754 meters above sea level. The midlle fingers are not for you, don't worry, they are ment for my cousin who took the picture and was giving me a hard time, because I was supposedly walking too slow. It's not my folt he was running up hill. Freak! :D

I didn't make it to the top though. I stopped for a conversation with a boy, some 50 meters below the peak! Luckily, that conversation hasn't finished to this day. :D

So many friends in such short time!

At lest I am back on the internet. Yesterday, just as I was geting wormed up, and found new interesting reading material on the blogs of my new on-line friends, an internet blackout occured. I contacted the provider of course, and they said - sorry, we have technical difficulties, so we'll fix it today, tomorow at the latest! - I was a little pissed off (there was nothing else to do at my work station exept wokr! :D), but then I comed my self and went home early, under the pretence that I don't feel well! We all have one of those days, I guess. Anyways, thanks to all the wonderful people that decided to stop at my new, insignificant blog and post a comment or 2. Hugs for everyone. :)

Today, I actualy wanted to write something about my favorite TV show - House M.D. I don't know if it is because of Hugh Laurie, or the way the carachter is built around the irony filled life of a dissabled doctor, or just the fact that the grasp on reality is so damn tight, but I am telling you, I can't get enough of those storys. I watched every single one of them, and can't wait for the next one to come out (in 3 days time).

I don't know if you know, but Hugh Laurie actualy came to the auditions for the part of doctor Willson. Further more, the direcotr of the series (Bryan Singer) stated that he hates working with British actors, beacuse they always come out pretentious with their accents. Look how that one turned out, hey?

At work, again

Some say that is unethical to blog from your job, seeing as how that is not what you are paid to do by your employer. But what happens when you have a job like mine? I have to sort out some documents as they arive, send them back and than sit on my ass until the next one comes. Don't get me wrong, there are days when I am swamped, but on the other hand, there are days when I don't have to work more than 1 or 2 hours troughout the whole day. But, that doesn't mean I can get up and leave! Oh, no, no, no! I have to be at my post for the entire 8 hour shift, just in case a new document arrives in for proccesing. So why can't I blog in the meantime, I said to my self.

So I decided to do some bloging and find some friends on-line, people that think like me. And why not? It's not like I'm stealing someone money or time. It is the time that spend doing nothing. Basicly, I do my bloging when I do nothing. And I have no guilt what so ever! How about you?

Just another day

We are all sheap! Yes, you read right. We are sheap. Where one goes the hurd follows. This is most noticable in politics and civil living. The leader is usualy the one that sets the course, and the rest just go affter the bell. You'll see that is so amaizing, that people will go from the extreme left to the extreme right, with the help of propaganda. Things can go from black to white with monetary help faster than you can snap your fingers. It is sad, I guess, we have long lost our integrity.

When I wanted to fly

He glided proudly through the air, besides me. He flew, but the wind wouldn't let him move forward. Stubbornly, he pushed ahead, with his head held up high. I waved form the edge, but he didn't even look at me. He stared in front of him, at his road... From within me, all the daemons, all the nightmares, all the sweat shadows from the past came out and didn't let me find my peace, at that ordinary day, while I waited to hear from you...

Imagine that

I too have a blog. It's been said that if you have no blog in the age we are living in, than it's like being illiterate in the begining of the laste century. So, here I am, and what is the better topic for the official start of blogging than illiteracy!

When I say illiteracy, I don't mean just the inability to read or write. There is a much worse kind of illiteracy. It is the one state of mind when you have been skilled to do both, but you take them for granted, or in plane words abuse them. There are people that think ignorance is bliss. Well, to hell with it, because it's not. It's one of the worst curses you will ever encounter.

I am trying to say that if you are illiterate in the nominal meaning of the word, you wont be able to read this, so this blog-post is nowhere as paradoxal as the sign on the photo. But if you are one of those people, one of those that think lying on your back, playing games, eating and drinking is all you'll need in life, than wake up, smell the situation you are in, and try to get out of it. Watch some quality TV, a good movie, read a book even! Put your lazy brain in gear. I promise you, you'll see that living can be much, much more than surviving.

Till the next post, stay in good mental health!
