No, it isn’t related to the fact that I am programming, working, learning, reading, writing, observing, creating and thinking a lot. I spend a lot of my spare time with my friends and the friends of the friends and so on. Sometimes I just walk in a central park trying to get a new idea, new feeling or new point of view, observing the nature. It’s just sometimes I have a feeling that I haven’t met the right person so far.

Walking through the empty streets of Saarbruecken the other night, I thought that I could spend this beautiful, romantic evening together with a person I’d be willing to share my experience, my feelings, my knowledge with. I stopped, looked at the stars in the dark, lonely, silent night sky. I enjoyed the stars, and this unique silent night. Suddenly, the voice of an old, tired man, wearing a dark overcoat and holding a cane made of wood broke the silence. He asked me whether I was thinking about a girl. “Not yet”, I answered. I wish I had… I wish I had!

Do you remember the fascinating story “The Little Prince”, written by French writer Antoine de Saint-Exupery? Sometimes I read it over and over and over again, wondering how small, almost imperceptible things build the foundation of humanity.

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; What is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Sometimes I feel. I feel that I am not letting other people see through me and my heart. I always let other people explore myself, but unfortunately, not many are going the same path I am going with them.

Sometimes, well, quite often, I think. I think that if I’d be different, it would be easier for me to exist and enjoy the pleasures of life.

Sometimes I create. Mostly when my friends make me think about something and let me realize some things I have never thought about before.

Sometimes, I enjoy my life, searching and finding the beauty of nature, the beauty of human communication and the beauty of human creation.
