Let people see you

Trappings and charm wear off… Let people see you. They see your upper arms are beautiful, soft and clean and warm, and then they will see this about their own, some of the time. It’s called having friends, choosing each other, getting found, being fished out of the rubble. It blows you away, how this wonderful event ever happened — me in your life, you in mine..

A Romanian expat in Vancouver (interview for

Recently, I was invited as Special Guest on to talk about my experience as an expat living in Vancouver. I moved to… Vancouver, British Columbia (Canada) approximately 2 years ago.

I have a challenge for you, forget about NSA and all the other possible ugly parts of using social media and join me in this exercise! If you were to choose one thing (and only one) you really like about each of the current most popular social media sites, what would you choose? (read the rest)

Blogging in a foreign language

What happens when you suddenly jump from speaking and writing in your native language to doing this in a foreign language? How accurately and genuinely can you still express your ideas? Can you still get into it and enjoy the state of flow? Or are you constantly interrupted because you just don’t find the best words to express yourself? And how long does it takes until one can think fluently in a foreign language? (read the rest)
