ВЕЧЕРЯ ЗА ДВАМА / A DINNER FOR TWO



Нашето момченце порасна и отлетя... Да следва. Да открие света. Да опознае себе си. Да намери призванието си.
Толкова много ни липсва!...

Our birdie-son flew away! To study at Uni. To explore the big, big world. To begin his independent life and learn lots of new things. 
He's not that sweet, little boy anymore (but for us he'll always be). He's a handsome young man now, though... still a  teenager!:0 )
 

Вечерите ни са странно тихи и дълги. Къщата е празна. Който го е преживял, ме разбира.
Our evenings are long and somehow silent. The house is empty! The clock hands don't run quickly... Some of you know what I mean, don't you?:)
...................................
Понякога, за разтуха, вадя една Много Специална Чаша и пия кафето си в нея!:0)
Everything's different - for him and for us. We miss him so much! Sometimes, when Mummy feels lonely, she takes out a Very Special Cup and drinks her coffee in it!:0)
 
Няма да забравя дългите опашки пред телефонните кабини в Централна поща-София през моите студентски години. Чакаш, чакаш - понякога напразно. Нямаше мобилни, нямаше как да предупредиш кога ще се обадиш...:(
Сега сме късметлии, че имаме Интернет и Скайп! Това смекчава болката...
Still we are happy to live in the era of Internet and Skype! This kind of connection eases the pain...:)
Хубав, усмихнат ноември за всички!
Have a lovely and joyful November, all of you!
П.П. Синът ми направи тази хартиена птица, докато беше доброволец това лято в ателието на Лятната театрална академия в Широка Лъка. Вж.специалния пост.

P.S. The paper bird was made by my son for the final performance of  the Summer Theatre Academy in Shiroka Luka 2013, where he was a volunteer . Have you missed the post?

    1. И едното го има, и другото... Странна смесица. Ама тъжното е в повече...
      Да, чувства се добре засега.:)

  2. Rossichka, I thought of that earlier post when I began to read this one.

    Best wishes to your flying bird.

    Your leafy characters are sublime! It is such a delight to see what your imagination creates. Many thanks! xo

    1. Thank you, Frances! You are always next to me!:)
      Last Saturday children made crowns with autumn leaves at our workshop. When it was over, I "saw" a figure, hidden in those leaves, and cut its face. That's how it all began...:-D
      I saw your new posts, but still have no time to read them! I'll comment soon...

  3. I do know how this feels. I can tell you that the first couple of weeks are the worst, then you gradually get used to it until you see them again! ;) Then it starts again. Well that's how it is for me anyway! I'm sure he'll have a fantastic time, you must be so proud.

  4. How will my friend from Bulgaria. How long do not leave a message for you, but always give a pass to see their activities. I now have an atelier and is taking me a long time of my day, but I'm happy. I am delighted to have your friendship. I loved the work of his son GORGEOUS! A hug here from Brazil MariaCininha

  5. My dear Rossichka, you can not imagine how much I understand you.
    This way you feel, and this happens to you and your husband, I felt, and I lived (and still living it) three times, each of my children went to work and live away from my country, two of them returned , and my daughter Julia (today is her birthday) remained living there, so far from us. but she's happy, I'm happy.
    I always say: When your children fly the nest, is equal, 10 miles, or 10000
    Your post brought a tear to my eyes, but a mixture of sadness and happiness. enjoy your time with your husband (it's like coming back to the early days of marriage, right?)
    Now go to fiction: thanks for your kind comment on my blog. I do not know how to write, I just put a word behind the other.but always with my heart.
    And my heart goes to Bulgaria right now :))

    1. No one teaches us how to be parents, what parenthood "includes" and i.e. happiness and joy, worries and care, sleepless nights and hilarious hours, tears and fun, unforgetable family holidays and hope, pride, love... No one prepares us for the pain, as no one can explain with words the special moments together.
      When our children are well and happy, we feel well and happy, too! You are so right, Roberto, you know that for sure!:)))
      I wish you and your big family health and joy! I'm sure there will be many new occasions to share your love, affection, support and gratitude!
      My heart is going on its turn to Argentina right now!:Dxx

    1. Oh, yes, we are having a fantastic autumn this year - the leaves slowly fade and fall down. There's almost no rain, nor clouds, nearly all day - sun and high temperatures.
      Enjoy you son's childhood, Stefanie - there's nothing more wonderful than that!:)

  7. Dear mummy Rossi! That's the tragedy of parenthood: the little birds leave the nest. BUT... in a while you will pick up your life, knowing he's doing well. You will have time for other things and enjoy the feeling that you did a good job. You delivered a child into the big world! Every ending is a new beginning, for him and for you.
    It's great that you handle this with creativity! That leave puppet is beautiful, fragile and touching. You have a big distraction coming up. Africa! Poor hubby will be the lonely one! Are your suitcases packed?

    1. No, they are not! Definitely this is not a thing I like to do...:( I'm trying to prepare a short post about the adventure.
      Thanks for what you've shared, my friend! But one thing is to know what will happen and another to FEEL it, to pass through it, isn't it...?x

    1. Thje truth is we didn't have appetite that evening, so there's not much on the table. But the wine was from a special occasion and it kept us still close to it...:)

  10. My dear friends, thanks for commenting! I'll write back later - today or tomorrow, I don't know. Habitually, weekends are not days for having a rest for me!:(
