away this stomach ache, headache, heartache."

"The Greek word for “return” is nostos. Algos means “suffering.” So nostalgia is the suffering caused by an unappeased yearning to return."

Time and solitude are the greatest stimulants and most precious luxuries.


Getting on a plane and flying back to Paris tonight.

I do not want to have any social contact for the next three weeks.

Going to get some work/thinking/creating done.

My alone time starts now.



Името на този човек е добър. Българин живее в пълна мизерия, но който е дарилнад 20,000 евро на Българската православна църква. Всеки ден, той стои в църквата и се моли, но не за себе си. Всички пари, дадени му, той събира и дарявана църквата. Той е най-големият индивидуален донор на църквата в последните няколко десетилетия. Той ходи на няколко километра всяка сутрин в църквата, както и на няколко километра назад към затваряне на всеки ден. Той е известенкато ”Праведният от Bajlovo”, и е влязъл в 99-тата година от живота си.

Овај декица се зове Добри - Добре. Наиме, ради се о једном старцу из Бугарске, који је пуки сиромах, а даривао је Бугарској Православној Цркви преко 20 000 еура. Сваки дан стоји у храму и проси, али не за себе, већ све скупља и даје Цркви. Највећи је дародавац Цркви у последњих неколико деценија, као појединац. И то, пешачи неколико километара до цркве, а онда и назад. Зову га Праведник из Бајлова. Веровали или не овај декица је ушао у 99.год.свога живота а изгледа доста млађи!

This man’s name is Dobre. A Bulgarian man living in abject poverty, but who has donated over 20,000 euros to the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. Everyday, he stands in the church and begs, but not for himself. All money given to him, he gathers and donates to the church. He is the biggest individual donor to the church in the past few decades. He walks several kilometers to the church each morning, and several kilometers back at the closing of each day. He is known as “The Righteous from Bajlovo”, and has entered the 99th year of his life. 

"By true repentance, by tears, prayers, and good works, the most filthy soul can be utterly cleansed and changed. Therefore, be careful not to rejoice in remembering the sin of a repentant sinner, but give thanks to God and marvel that light has been brought from darkness."
