In a Vase on Monday - November Daisies & Solidarity

Inițial, nu am avut chef să fac vaza de luni. Cum nu am avut chef de nimic de la tragedia de vineri seara încoace. Urmăresc ce se întâmplă, ce se discută, ce se scrie, dar eu nu pot să zic nimic, căci mi se pare că toate cuvintele sunt de prisos. Apoi, am dat ieri peste aceste margarete,  incredibil de frumoase pentru un început de noiembrie. Răzlețe, prin diferite colțuri de grădină, fiecare cu forma și culoarea sa, aproape că nu se văd. Împreună au dat însă un buchet frumos, pentru care am găsit totuși un cuvânt, cuvântul acestor zile - solidaritate. În plus, mă gândesc că cea mai bună formă de rezistență e să continui să faci lucruri. Așa că, iată încă o vază de luni.' We're not numbers we're free, we're so alive, And the day we give in is the day we die.' ( Goodbye to gravity)

At first, I thought I would not have a vase this Monday as I am sad and not in the mood for it. But then I saw these beautiful daisies, much too beautiful for this time of the year. As they are isolated in various corners of the garden, you can hardly notice them. But together, they make a nice bouquet that I call solidarity, the word of the day in Romania, after the tragedy that happened last Friday night in  a music club in Bucharest, when 30 young people died and 140 have been injured in a fire Ironically, that night, a rock band was launching their new album and sang one of their favourite songs -”The Day We Die”.
