Quick note: Three months in Romania was well spent, and included two days (not enough!) in Sibiu, Romania. The next post will give more details on my time there, but I’ll preface it by sharing this little diddy I put together. It really was a magical place and time, one that I barely can explain. Here I try:

Two Tables and a Chair - On a Napkin
I didn’t take a photo of the spot.. .so here I drew it on a napkin at the cafe I’m sitting at 😉 Two Tables and a Chair – On a Napkin

Two wooden chairs
A small round table
And three wandering souls
Found in Sibiu Romania

We sat down
She spoke
I spoke
We spoke

Stories of life
Stories of love
Stories of hope

Encouragements
Discouragements

Friendships
Relationships
Romances

Questions of purpose
Questions of strength
Questions of questionings

Glimpses at the past
Truths of the present
Hopes for the future

For hours
We sat
And we spoke

Two wooden chairs
A small round table
And wandering souls

Connecting on a level
So great
So rare

Time passed
She left
I stayed

And he came

We sat down
He spoke
I spoke
We spoke

Stories of hope
Stories of love
Stories of life

Discouragements
Encouragements

Romances
Relationships
Friendships

Questions of questionings
Questions of strength
Questions of purpose

Hopes for the future
Truths of the present
Glimpses at the past

We spoke
And we sat
For hours

Connecting on a level
So rare
So great

Time passed
He stayed
I left

The power
The energy
The simplicity

Of two wooden chairs
A small round table
And wandering souls

What brought us together?
The desire to explore
One of Romania’s most beautiful cities

Though this meant little
Once we’d met
Once we’d sat down
Once we’d spoke of

Our love of the world
Our strengths
Our vulnerabilities
Our wandering souls

It was unexpected
And something I’d never before
Experienced

Two days
Spent not exploring place
But exploring person

Two different people
Two different days
And two strikingly similar
Conversations

Each tailored to
Our own personality
Each tailored to
Our own being

Two days
Which brought
So much light
So much understanding

To the journey
We each are on

The power
Of two wooden chairs
A small round table

And three wandering souls
Found in Sibiu Romania

And now for your listening pleasure: “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” performed in a basement tavern in Sibiu. Quite fitting. Enjoy! xxAnika
