Beauty and Meaning.
Those are the two key words for the Bucharest Lounge.
The frame is Romania and the topics I write about can be enjoyed by EVERYONE !
I would like to spread BEAUTIFUL perspectives of Romania and the Romanians through this blog. I have not found such a forum when googling the subject. Yes, there are plenty of them circulating IN Romania. I want the rest of Europe to know too about the beautiful sides of Romania and:
– Maybe I have this idea of changing people’s ideas and attitudes too? But that’s hard. Changing attitudes. I know. Well, let’s start like this and see where it lands ?
I think Romania has “suffered” enough throughout history , and true, Romania is still in a HUGE development phase. The good thing is that there is POTENTIAL. The challenge is…well, we know already about them.
However, I think it’s enough bad press about Romania and with the Bucharest Lounge I would like to give my contribution balancing that negativity out and sharing BEAUTIFUL pictures of the country and BEAUTIFUL stories about the generous people living there.
Western European media doesn’t give a sufficient and adeqvat picture of this beautiful country.
When I write this blog I look through the lenses of MEANINGFULNESS. When I live life I want to live with meaning too. Who doesn’t ? However, sometimes I don’t manage and have to keep reminding myself.
Why ? In the place where I live, Scandinavia, we are technocrats. We rely a lot of technology that works. We hand in our tax return on the net, we pay parking fees through our mobile phone, we send each other links when someone asks for help.
We are busy and we live in societies that are efficient. We found ways of making things simpler with technology. Simpler, true, but did we miss out something ? Or is it just me ? I experience that we are so busy we often forget to take a stand about important things. We have so much choice now , so we use the explanation that : ” I don’t have time to take a stand, it’s just too much to take a stand for”.
We need to take the time. We need to take a stand with the purpose of changing things.
People make change happen. People like you and I.
