Connecting the dots of timely thoughts

………………………………………………………………………Well, TIME. It’s one thing that’s perfectly compatible with the Romanian final answer to all problems: “Asta e!” – “That’s it!”. TIME just is, or rather it just happens and you can’t do anything about it but accept it; not even buy it! By transporting myself to the EAST I get the impression that there is greater acceptance for the flow of TIME, which could actually be because the illusion that ‘everything for sale’ is less wide-spread, or maybe it’s because people just accepted more things in the past decades than their peers in the West………………………….. Emotional behaviour, people living on the financial edge of the possible living standards in contrast to rich maffia crooks, sexy ladies, beaches, mountains, all this beautiful nature, the Slavic softness in the language, attitude of people, the faces, colourful street set-up often surrounded by the grey concrete buildings – the totalitarian city planning heritage, friends left behind…………….Kosovo’s unilaterally declared independence marks a failure of the concept of multi-ethnic societies. Almost two years of half-hearted negotiations between Pristina and Belgrade did not achieve any joint vision of a possible future of Kosovo within Serbia. Imagine, PLOTKI would split up along ethnic lines! We would end up having two handful of separate entities but no more projects. what a waste of TIME……..TIME and EAST: like a big chewing gum stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea. It can be stretched even farther
