Today it’s Lavinia’s birthday. Today, also, we heard a sad news. 

A friend from Portugal died from cancer. I feel very sorry for his wife and kids. Joao is well now… 

The entire community decorated the shared space with palm leaves, yellow flowers, and colorful bunches. 

I felt like an idiot, absorbed by my own mind, preoccupied more by my own inner things and the menu I was responsible for, absent, on the other hand, to the present moment. 

Lavinia is today 41 beautiful years and I made sushi. 

Fabricio and Guy enchanted us with live music and a soft smell of weed came from the garden. We didn’t have alcohol, but we swapped it for sweets. 

Our friends, Pablo and Celeste, made a Bolivian inspired cake and Lavinia made the famous and difficult choux a la creme. 

It was beautiful. 

The children fell asleep in the hammock and we talked whispering until late. 

I am sorry, my love, for my lack of romance. I love you and Happy Birthday!

Farewell Joao! 

Other than that, nothing, we are alive…


Astazi este ziua de nastere a Laviniei. Tot astazi am aflat o veste trista. Un prieten din Portugalia a murit de cancer. Imi pare rau pentru sotia lui si pentru copii. Joao, este bine acum…

Toata comunitatea a impodobit spatiul comun cu frunze de palmier, flori galbene si buchete colorate. 

M-am simtit un bou, un pierdut in propria minte, preocupat mai mult de trairile interioare si de meniul de care eram responsabil, absent in schimb fata de momentul prezent. 

Lavinia a implinit astazi 41 de ani frumosi iar eu am pregatit sushi. 

Fabricio si Guy ne-au incantat cu muzica live iar de afara adia miros suav de iarba. 

N-am avut alcool dar am suplimentat cu dulce. Prietenii nostri, Pablo si Celeste au preparat un tort cu specific Bolivian iar Lavinia a preparat pretentioasa si celebra Eclair in forma de Choix a la Creme.

A fost frumos.

Copiii au adormit in hamac iar noi am discutat in soapta pana tarziu. Scuza-ma iubita mea pentru lipsa de romantism, Te Iubesc si La Multi Ani!

Drum bun Joao!

In rest, nimic, traim…
