Folk Dance Festival

March 31, 2012

Sixth Bulgarian Folk Dance Festival – 31 March 2012, Sofia – an incredibly energizing atmosphere. All were a delight to the eyes, so the jury must have had a hard time deciding on the winners. Grand applause for Folklorika Dance Club.

The benchmark in (dis)liking

March 28, 2012

Someone’s irritating you with a sarcastic sense of humor, for example. Frankly, isn’t yours sarcastic at times too? A trait you share with the one you dislike.

Or you admire someone immensely for exactly the sarcastic sense of humour. Frankly, isn’t yours superbly sarcastic too? A trait you share with the one you like.

On what we like and dislike in others. And the benchmark.

The Foreigner

March 26, 2012

The Foreigner (2012) – a cute Bulgarian comedy movie, which at times makes you a bit sad. Two far-fetched realities – of a Frenchman who comes to Bulgaria and falls in love with a girl from a mountain village and several story lines funnily intertwined. Different customs and backgrounds with an end as happy as it gets.

March 25, 2012

Some spend mostly on education. Others on leisure. Some on arts. Others on darts. Spending patterns revealing our income status, but most importantly our values.

Some save for the sake of saving. Some – for a rainy day. Others for a sunny day.

The power of vulnerability

March 24, 2012

Blame as a way to discharge pain and discomfort. Let ourselves be seen, vulnerably seen. Brené Brown in TED Talk:  The power of vulnerability.

Bottom line: i am enough. Perfectly Imperfect.

Via a friend:
     ‘Roses are red
     Violates are blue
     Vodka costs less
     Than a dinner for two.’

A glass fit for Friday night poets’ needs.
