Life In A Day

Hello everyone! This is me and my kids, participating in a project called Life in a Day..The video starts with my friend Catinca Untaru who introduces us into the story.
 I wanted to do this short footage because I loved so much Ridley Scott's idea of common people shooting for one day, 24th of july, their everyday activities, normal things..... you just had to grab a camera and film yourself. Over 80.000 people filmed that day and sent their footage to Ridley Scott and Kevin McDonald's studios to see if they can come up with a great movie about Life in a Day on Earth...
P.S: you should watch her act in the movie called "The Fall"-it's fantastic

Do schools kill creativity?

10 houses to dream about

      Ideile marete sunt cele care vin din surse mai putin abordate. De ce sa nu ne inspiram din vise, de ce sa nu ne inspiram din povesti, de ce sa nu luam idei fanteziste ale imaginatiei si sa le punem in practica? Putini au curajul sa faca asta si tocmai de aceea sunt de apreciat. 

pics from the web...

        I picked up some images that are mood changing, don't you think? I look at them and feel lost in an amazing dream puzzle,where I get to choose my fantasy set up and would take me where ever I desire...
        You know what they say " a curious mind knows no limits"

Eric Carle - The Very Hungry Caterpillar - children's book - Waterstone's

The Very Hungry Caterpillar  written by Eric Carle was first published by the World Publishing Company in 1969. The winner of many awards, it has sold 30 million copies and reportedly a copy of the book is sold every 30 seconds somewhere in the world. It is highly popular and has been praised for its use of easy-to-read words which makes it good for teaching young children to read.  The caterpillar's diet is a fictional fantasy but the story does introduce the concept of the metamorphosis from egg to caterpillar to butterfly. It has been described as "one of the greatest childhood classics of all time.

    This is the classic edition of the bestselling story written for the very young. A newly hatched caterpillar eats his way through all kinds of food.

     Every child should experience this wonderful, cumulative story, with its brightly coloured pictures of the tiny but greedy caterpillar that eats his way through one apple, two plums and three pears before turning into a beautiful butterfly. The board version stands up well to the inevitable poking of little fingers through the holes in the pages.  (Kirkus UK)

Stones in life by Fernando Pessoa (portuguese poet)

To be happy is to recognize that life, is worth living, even with all its challenges, misunderstandings, and its periods of crisis.

To be happy, is to stop being the victim of problems and being the author of your own story.

To cross deserts outside of yourself, and to find the oasis inside your soul.

To thank God for each morning for the miracle of life.

To be happy, is not to be afraid of your own emotions. It is knowing how to speak about yourself.

To have the courage to listen to a “no”. To have the strength to receive a criticism, even when unjust.

Stones in the road? I save every single one, one day I´ll build a castle.

Fernando Pessoa - portuguese poet.
(Translation in english by Isabel Gallagher)

McCurry's work has been featured worldwide in magazines and he is a frequent contributor to National Geographic. He has been a member ofMagnum Photos since 1986.


      Here I posted some pics that deserve to be seen by as many of us, because they demonstrate that one's imagination is huge and that we can create worlds full of beautiful and interesting details, perfectly integrated in the new landscape, drawn by Vladimir Kush.

    Vladimir Kush este considerat unul dintre cei mai talentati artisti suprarealisti ai vremurilor noastre. Operele sale, inspirate din tehnica si ideile lui Dali, contin elemente schimbate printr-o metamorfoza naturala, deloc fortata. Totul pare perfect integrat in noul peisaj si asta nu face decat sa ateste extraordinara pricepere a lui Kush. Indiferent daca sunteti sau nu fani ai suprarealismului, merita sa vizualizati cele 22 de poze absolut fascinante!
