Every life is a story and every story has a trick. Just as in life, stories build up over time.
And all the time, all those lived or narrated are revealed. Joy or sadness, certainties or doubts, defects and qualities all give the measure of the human being. With every choice I made, but especially with every thing I chose not to do, I made a destiny. What I am is my choice and this perfectly describes my reasoning to be. Everything that I feel and thinks defines me in the most intimate way because I am in everything I do. It’s me and me next to me. It’s me and my friends. It’s me, my family, my friends and those I want to tell them that I care. I was born in Câmpulung Muscel. Somewhere in Arges. To grow up I grew up in the middle of a family of honest and rebellious men. Loyal to a tradition, my parents stubbornly insisted on forgetting what had to be formally forgotten and agreed on by the party. Though well trapped in the soil of tradition, mine did not hesitate to assess the advantages of the future. They actually lived in the hope that one day we, their children, would do better than they did. I grew up in the ambiance of a balance between memory and present, of what I am and what can become. Even in the early years of my school, in the home of my childhood, names like Theodor Aman, Ion Barbu, or Nicolae Golescu, to remind only a few of them, had a familiar resonance.
