In front of the balcony, majestic trees covered in a white sparkling blanket are looking at me while the blue of winter is popping out on the sky, giving me the feeling of living in Wonderland.
Another year passed by. A year so difficult for me that it seemed to never end. But it did end in a cozy way, while visiting my loved ones in Romania. Being in my parents’ arms again, it felt like those days when I was fighting with anxiety and bad panick attacks never existed. I felt safe. Whoever said “don’t grow up, it’s a trap!” was right!
The year ended in a glorious way, musically talking. After releasing my latest song “Only winter can bring you home”, the social media simply exploded. I was so overwhelmed when Facebook yesterday congratulated me for the thousand wonderful friends that I gained there! I can’t find the proper word to say “Thank you!” to all of you, but THANK YOU! and I really mean it!
For a small, independent artist, receiving support from people from all around the globe, it means a lot and it keeps me motivated. And another thing that I like about my friends on my page is that they actually want to talk to me. It doesn’t matter if it’s about music or life, but they reach out to me and ask questions or simply share with me stories about their lives. It already looks like I’m building a wonderful community online and I’m loving it!
A good start of 2019 I already had by giving an interview to a local newspaper from Romania. I was scared for the questions that I was about to get asked but it was so different than what I imagined in all those hours waiting in front of the computer to get the call. Why the anxiety? Why the bad thoughts? No need for them. They don’t exist. It’s just in our heads. The wonderful journalist was so unexpectedly down to earth that I immediately have opened the gates of my soul and let it all out. Next week the interview should be in the newspaper and although it will be in Romanian, will do my best to translate it into English and post it here on my blog.
The batteries are charged and I am ready to go back to composing music and also continue the card illustrations that I’m working on and hopefully this year they will be available for purchase. I promise you something very cute 😉
