Arbol del Mundo la Targul “Desaga lui Mos Craciun”, Plaza Mall 4-23 decembrie 2012

Dragilor, anul asta Desaga lui Mos Craciun va cuprinde si produse de la Arbol del Mundo, copacul meu cel calator. Desi nu e mediul cel mai propice pentru un copac care vrea sa creasca liber, anul asta copacelul meu si-a mutat radacinile supraterane, ca nu cumva sa prinda radacini de mall, in Plaza Mall. In perioada 4-23 decembrie o sa puteti culege cercei, coliere, bratari, inele si alte bucurii colorate, facute cu mult drag. Pentru nemergatorii la Mall, Plaza Mall se afla pe Bld. Timisoara 26Z, langa Cora Militari. Va astept cu drag, fie si numai sa povestim, caci sarbatorile nu sunt doar un prilej de manifestare consumerista!

Arbol del Mundo goes west! Transylvania, here we come!

Dupa cateva saptamani caniculare, Arbol del Mundo si-a luat iar radacinile satule de seceta la spinare, de data asta pentru a merge spre meleaguri transilvanene, mai racoroase si mai pline de poezie.

Primul stop il face la Sibiu, la Art Boutique, in Piata Mica, unde va trebui sa isi infiga radacinile destul de adanc, pentru a face fata furtunii si ploilor prognozate. Daca ramurile-i raman tefere, anul asta Arbol del Mundo va ajunge unde isi doreste de mult, la FanFest, in Rosia Montana.

Ca sa tina muntii in loc si ca sa arate ca “aurul” padurilor (semintele, lemnul) poate fi mult mai frumos decat aurul pe care Gold Corporation doreste sa-l scoata cu orice pret din muntii Rosiei Montane.
Anul asta tinem muntii in loc, cu mic cu mare!

Arbol del Mundo se muta la mare!

De ceva saptamani, caldura ne-a topit trupurile si ne-a toropit mintile. Frunzele de Arbol del Mundo au palit si ele iar radacina cea superficiala a inceput sa se ceara mutata, pana la temperaturi mai acceptabile, in alte soluri. Si astfel, cu alai mare de culori si forme, Arbol del Mundo isi ia picioarele la spinare si o taie inspre mare. Nu chiar direct, face un mic ocol prin Bulgaria, la plantatiile de levantica din Dobrogea bulgareasca, sa mai adulmece miresme si idei noi, neaparat necesare ca sa nu se ofileasca.

Ne vedem, asadar, in Vama Veche, unde Arbol del Mundo va poposi cat de mult vor reusi radacinile sale cu aplecare spre nomadism sa reziste!

Luati-va costumul de baie si haideti si voi!

Va stept la targ week-endul acesta

Va stept la targ, prin ploaie, vant, furtuna, ca un copac cumsecade ce sunt!

Melancholic Sunday with Lhasa de Sela

One of the last performances of the wonderful nomad voice, Lhasa de Sela, before setting off to the “heart of the world”. A tribute to Fairuz, the greatest Lebanese singer, with lyrics written by Lebanese poet Kahlil Gibran. Indeed, dear Lhasa, immortality lies in a song and the way you mingled your heart with your music makes you and your song immortal!

Lyrics: Kahlil Gibran

Music: Najib Hankash

Give me the flute, and sing /

immortality lies in a song /

and even after we’ve perished /

the flute continues to lament /

have you taken refuge in the woods /

away from places like me / followed streams on their courses /

and climbed up the rocks.

Did you ever bathe in a perfume /

and dry yourself with a light /

drink the dawn as wine /

rarefied in goblets of ether /

give me the flute then and sing /

the best of prayer is song /

and even when life perishes /

the flute continues to lament /

have you spent an evening /

as I have done / among vines /

where the golden candelabra

clusters hang down /

did you sleep on the grass at night /

and let space be your blanket /

abstaining from all that will come /

forgetful of all that has passed /

give the flute then and sing /

in singing is Justice for the heart

and even after every guilt /

has perished / the flute continues to lament /

give the flute and sing /

forget illness and its cure /

people are nothing but lines /

which are scribbled on water.

Help us save Lucky, a poor puppy we found hit by a car on the street

Help us save Lucky!


Lucky is just 3 months old and had already a life full of pain behind him. We found Lucky one week ago, during the night, in the middle of the road, giving heart tearing yelps and trembling. He was already with two male who saw him being hit by a car which didn’t stop. We took him to the hospital, without too much thinking and the next day he was operated at his right foot, in the humerus area. He had a quite good recovery, just that we found out he has sarcoptic itch, which can be transmitted to humans as well and he is now in the hospital for at least 1 month, in order to treat the itch. The poor thing keeps sratching himself till the blood comes out.

He also had 42 degrees (Celsius) fever for three days in a row but now he is feeling better. The doctors don’t quite know where the fever comes from, as Lucky shows no signs of babesiosis.
Another hypothesis of mine is that of portosystemic shunt in dogs, which was brought about when Lucky had the echography done.

We jumped in to save Lucky having no idea about the costs of the whole treatment and now we realise how much it will cost altogether. We paid for the first investigations, surgery, antibiotics and treatment for lice and itch, food (some 250 euro) but now our budget has really come to an end. If you could help us pay for the hospital for one month and the analyses that are still to be done, it will be just so great!

If you can help, we are very thankful!
