No plane in the sky!

* versiunea in limba romana mai jos

Last night I went out the window and looked at the sky. I saw the moon and the stars … and I was sad because I realized something was missing: the planes! I didn’t see any planes. Where are all those airplanes whose signal lights caught my eye every time, making me think of the passengers on board, trying to imagine where are they going? So I looked at the flight radar: 3599 planes in the air all over the world!

4-5 times less than normal. Another sign of the fact that in this period life life slows down… But the plane’s place was taken by our thoughts that fly … more than ever. Fly to places where we have been and where we have lived wonderful experiences or to places we will reach! And that’s fine. Nothing else helps us to keep our soul full of optimism and hope than pleasant dreams and memories! Life has slowed down, he’s almost at a break. But it’s a break, not an eternity! And in this break, the experiences we lived help us through their recollection.

Material things make it harder now … some are broken, others are outdated … the satisfaction decreases quite quickly, usually because of the envy felt during the comparisons we make: others have bought an object from the same category (car, flat screen TV, etc.), but better and more expensive, which it causes us negative feelings and dissatisfaction. Instead, a trip is valuable primarily because of our impressions and memories of it, and these are individual and subjective, so unlikely to resemble other people – even if they were on a similar vacation.

So I will look every night in the sky looking for the sign that the break is nearing the end: the planes! Until then take care, stay home, enjoy the pleasant experiences you have already experienced: look at the pictures, remember the wonderful places and people you met, the events you have lived , share them with your loved ones!

Niciun avion pe cer!

Aseara am iesit la fereastra si m-am uitat pe cer. Am vazut luna si stelele… si m-am intristat pentru ca mi-am dat seama ca lipseste ceva: avioanele! Nu am zarit niciun avion. Unde sunt toate acele avioane ale caror lumini de semnalizare imi captau privirea de fiecare data facandu-ma sa ma gandesc la pasagerii de la bordul lor, incercand sa imi imaginez incotro se indreapta? Asa ca m-am uitat pe flight radar: 3599 de avioane in aer in intreaga lume! De 4-5 ori mai putine decat in mod normal. Inca un semn al faptului ca in aceasta perioada viata se desfasoara cu incetinitorul, parca… Locul avioanelor a fost luat insa de gandurile noastre care zboara… mai mult ca oricand. Zboara spre locuri in care am fost si in care am trait experiente minunate sau spre locuri in care o sa ajungem! Si asta e bine. Nimic altceva nu ne ajuta mai bine sa ne pastram sufletul plin de optimism si de speranta decat visurile si amintirile placute!  Viata a incetinit, e aproape in pauza. Dar e o pauza, nu o eternitate! Si in aceasta pauza experientele traite ne ajuta prin rememoratea lor.

Lucrurile materiale o fac mai greu acum… unele se strica, altele se demodeaza… multumirea scade destul de repede, de obicei din cauza invidiei resimtite cu prilejul comparatiilor pe care le facem: altii si-au cumparat un obiect din aceeasi categorie (masina, televizor cu ecran plat etc.), dar mai bun si mai scump, ceea ce ne provoaca sentimente negative si nemultumiriIn schimb, o calatorie e valoroasa in primul rand datorita impresiilor si amintirilor noastre legate de ea, iar acestea sunt individuale și subiective, deci putin probabil de a se asemana cu ale altor oameni – chiar daca acestia au fost intr-o vacanta similara.

Asa ca o sa ma uit in fiecare seara pe cer in cautarea semnului ca pauza se apropie de sfarsit: avioanele! Pana atunci aveti grija, stati in casa, bucurati-va de experientele placute pe care le-ati trait deja: uitati-va pe poze, amintiti-va locurile si oamenii minunati pe care i-ati intalnit, intamplarile pe care le-ati trait, impartasiti-le cu cei dragi!
