Apricot blossoms

The apricot trees have been in bloom since last week. They're still growing and this year, we've had more flowers than ever. We've also had a few nights when the temperatures dipped below zero, so you'll see that some of the petals have been bitten by the cold and have turned a beige color around [...]

Two of my books are now published

Some of you know that I've been writing here on my website since 2000, so I've put a lot of words on paper and screen. But I've always wanted to write a book, to put that English major of mine to some good use 🙂. Life intervened and other priorities demanded my time. Good old [...]

Proud To Be Romanian at Cetatea Făgărașului

Ligia and I were in attendance at a wonderful event last night, organized by the good folks from Proud To Be Romanian at Cetatea Făgărașului, a medieval fortress whose construction began in 1310 and continued through various repairs and improvements well into the 1630s. It goes without saying that I love medieval fortresses and castles. [...]
