Lectura de sambata dimineata

„Credinta pe care o poarta acum in ea nu are nimic exaltat. Este o incredere calma, o certitudine linistita. Stie acum ca poti trai in foarte cotidiana asteptare a miracolului. Ca asteptarea aceasta este un mod de viata. Ca a-si aminti de o mana pusa pe spatele gatului ei, acea mana mare si lunga a necunoscutului care-i tinea astfel capul, in dragostea lor, a retrai fie si numai senzatia acelei maini intretesute in parul ei este suficient ca sa fie fericita, puternica, indiferenta la micile rani ale zilelor. Mirosul focului din semineul din „galeria oglinzilor” este, de unul singur, o bucurie discreta, naturala ca aerul, inepuizabila.

Intelege, totodata, ca ii este imposibil sa le explice aceasta bucurie altora….

[…] Ea traieste acum sub acel cer larg si senin care se afla in ea. Caldura este deja primavaratica. LUmina este atat de puternica incat este imposibil sa-si imagineze un vizitator nocturn care s-ar strecura pe usa „galeriei oglinzilor”. Si totusi numai pe el il asteapta. Aceasta asteptare o face si mai detasate.

[…] Si apoi vine ziua aceea de la inceputul lui mai, cand strada este orbita de soare, asurzita de claxoanele masinilor al caror flux se stranguleaza in palnia formata de barierele lucrarilor de asfaltare.”

In ultimele luni, diminetile mele de sambata sunt fie ocupate, fie lenese. Insa printre picaturi (sau fulgi, inca suntem in sezonul rece) imi fac timp sa va fac o recomandare. Pasajul de mai sus este dintr-o frumoasa carte de Gabriel Osmonde aka Adrei Makine, a carui scriitura contemplativa face ca romanul sa curga poetic, ca o dupa-amiaza de mai. Titlul ei este la fel de poetic: „Calatoria unei femei care nu se mai temea de imbatranire”. Cititi-o; la final veti respira diferit.

Sunt creator de imagine, consultant de stil, jurnalist de moda si personal shopper. In ADN-ul meu se amesteca rafturile de carti cu umerasele de haine: asta e motivul pentru care biroul imi e plin de carti, reviste, haine colorate si pantofi splendizi. Prin Style Diary si munca de stilist personal transmit femeilor doua principii in care cred: stilul - la fel ca mersul pe bicicleta sau pe tocuri - este o aptitudine care se invata, prin exercitiu, cu perseverenta si urmand cateva reguli logice si de bun-simt, iar a te sti frumoasa si cu stil nu au nimic de-a face cu tendintele, cifrele de pe cantar sau din buletin, cantitatea hainelor din dulap sau pretul. Mai cred in puterea de transformare a hainelor si, mai presus de orice, ca o femeie frumoasa este neaparat educata, inteligenta si cu un interior bogat.
