I wonder

May 5, 2010

I wonder where my strength and inspiration went. Sure, I can blame it on so many changes, travel etc., but I am past the square one. I am back beyond the game. And as I write this I still love writing and I feel like words forming inside of me and bubble up to the top of my thoughts. I am alive but I need me to do it.
A thought from some Renaissance philosopher:” A man can do anything if he will.”
Right.

People

People. So precious. So amazing. So unique.

Among other things that I do, I work as an interpreter. I go to medical institutions, to social appointments, to people’s houses and schools. I meet people. I am an introvert  and making long-standing friends from those meetings would be frightening but short acquaintance brings security knowing that we may not see each other after this short meeting.

In times of waiting for a doctor, a teacher, a social worker my clients share the most amazing stories of life. And as I listen I realized that everyone’s life is a story to be heard. They have to be heard or else the collection of great art worth of “Musée du Louvre” would be lost forever.

I wonder at the Cosmos. Is it all there is? Is there anything outside of Cosmos? I remember a time when I was a small boy thinking about the vastness of the Universe and wondering if it was contained in anything. “If everything is in something”- I thought-“what is our Universe in?” Those thoughts were too big for a little child and they used to scare me and fill my heart with chilling pointlessness.

That is until I found the Answer.

I wonder how humanity will look in twenty years.

Temptations.

As I walk the road of change using different tools I find along the way to help the progress I also find some foes.

I decided not to drink coffee (not a rule but a guideline) especially after 6:00pm and no sugar after same hour. It was easy to do home in Ukraine. No good coffee, no time to make it, process itself is complicated since we don’t have coffee maker there. Now all of that is changed. We are staying at my mother-in-law and everything is different in the land of opportunities. Coffee is everywhere, easily available and served in different flavors. Temptation. The price for drinking coffee in my case is headaches, loss of energy in a long run. So I try to avoid it. But it’s a struggle. Now it’s not big yet but every time I am offered a cup of a bitter drink I am tempted to answer ”yes, please.”

Woke up around 4 am, spent some time praying and was in wonder of the beautiful, snowy, sleepy Ternopil streets six floors below.
