Valea Draganului (1)


Cele patru zile, petrecute cu colegii de facultate la Valea Draganului, au fost minunate. Am fost gazduiti la pensiunea Victoria din Valea Draganului, localitate aflata la cativa kilometri de Huedin. La sosire, pe la ora 11.30, gazdele ne-au intampinat cu placinte ardelenesti, umplute cu branza si un pahar de vin. O pensiune frumoasa, gazde primitoare, mancare multa si buna.

The four days spent with faculty colleagues on Dragan Valley, were wonderful. We were hosted at the Victoria pension in Dragan Valley, a village located a few kilometers from Huedin. On arrival, at 11.30, the hosts expected us with Transylvanian pies stuffed with cheese and a glass of wine. A beautiful guesthouse, friendly hosts, good food and plenty.

A doua zi am fost la barajul de la Valea Draganului, unde am avut surpriza sa-l cunoastem pe dl. Alexandru Sanislav, profesor in Oradea, care isi petrece vara pe aceste meleaguri. Ba mai mult, el a adunat o importanta colectie de obiecte si costume traditionale romanesti, un fel de muzeu de arta rurala, pe mica sa proprietate de pe dealurile din apropierea barajului....si ne-a invitat la el.
Ca sa ajungem acolo a trebuit sa mergem cu o barca si sa vaslim pana la varsarea paraului Alunis in lacul de acumulare...o adevarata aventura, dar a meritat!!

The next day we were at the hydroelectric dam Dragan Valley, where we were surprised to know Mr. Alexander Sanislav, professor in Oradea, who spends the summer in these parts. Moreover, he gathered an important collection of objects and Romanian traditional costumes, a kind of rural art museum on his small property in the hills near the dam .... and we were invited to visit it.
To get there we had to go by boat and paddle ... an adventure, but well worth it !!




In sfarsit, am ajuns cu bine la mal...ha, ha!
Finally, we arrived safely to shore ...

Niste privelisti minunate...
Some spectacular views ...

Dar surpriza a fost cand ne-a invitat, pe noi doamnele, sa imbracam costume populare din colectia lui. Am facut o poza de amintire....
But the surprise was when he invited us, ladies, to dress in traditional romanian costumes from his collection. I took a picture of remembrance ....


Drumul inapoi a fost mai usor si am ajuns cu bine la mal.Vedere de pe baraj....
The way back was easy and I arrived safely to shore.

Gaudeamus igitur - 45 de ani de la terminarea facultatii...


In 17 iunie am sarbatorit, la Cluj, 45 de ani de la terminarea Facultatii de Fizica de la Universitatea Babes-Bolyai. Din pacate au venit foarte putini colegi...si mereu aceeasi, printre ei numarandu-se un fost decan al Facultatii de fizica si un fost prorector al Universitatii. A fost o masa festiva la Casa Universitarilor impreuna cu colegii dintr-o generatie mai mica cu doi ani, colegii Angelei Bratu. A fost o placere sa ne revedem cu ei, nu ne-am vazut de atatia ani!!

Din pacate, a fost o zi ploioasa. Am avut putin timp la dispozitie ca sa revad centrul Clujului. Spatiul verde, incarcat de flori din jurul catedralei, a fost inlocuit cu betoane...nu imi mai aminteste de Clujul de altadata!

In June 17 we celebrated, in Cluj, 45 years of graduation in physics from Babes-Bolyai University. Unfortunately, very few colleagues came and always the same, among them a former dean of the Faculty of Physics and a Vice-rector of the university. It was a festive meal at University House with other colleagues of a generation less two years. It was a pleasure to meet again with them, we have not seen for so many years !!
 
Unfortunately, it was a rainy day. I had little time to review old heart of the city. Green space, full of flowers around the cathedral, was replaced with stone ... I no longer remembers the old Cluj!

A doua zi am plecat spre Valea Draganului, sa petrecem cateva zile de vacanta, la o pensiune.

The next day I went to Dragan Valley, to spend some days at a hostel.

UFO sau lucruri neterminate...


Nu intotdeauna esti in starea de inspiratie... Atunci cand ai inspiratie, asta te motiveaza. Dar, daca nu termini, nu duci acel lucru pana la sfarsit...el devine un UFO (UnFinished Objects).
Acest colaj l-am facut, acum, ceva timp....
Am fixat pe un strat subtire de vatelina, cateva  bucati textile. Am adaugat niste fire, fixate cu Avalon, un stabilizator solubil in apa.

Not always you are in a state of inspiration ... When you're inspired, it motivates you. But if you do not finished, do not take this thing to the end ... it is a UFO.
This collage I made some time ago ....
I fixed on a thin layer of batting, several textile pieces. I added some wires fixed with Avalon, a water soluble stabilizer.



Apoi am fixat totul cu cusaturi drepte sau in zig-zag.
Then I fixed everything with straight stitches and zigzag.


Inca nu m-am decis cum sa finalizez aceasta lucrare, sa-i fac o bordura inchisa la culoare, catifea de exemplu, sau sa-l inserez intr-o lucrare mai mare....grea problema!
Imi puteti da o sugestie?

I'm not decided yet how to complete this work, to do a border, dark, velvet for example, or to insert it in a larger work .... difficult problem!

Can you give me a suggestion?

Revederea dupa 50 de ani...


Sambata, 16 mai, a fost Revederea de 50 de ani de la terminarea liceului "Avram Iancu" din Aiud, pe care l-am absolvit in....1965!!
Pe atunci, doua clase de elevi am absolvit liceul, una de real alta de uman. Eu am facut sectia reala, pentru ca imi placeau mai mult stiintele exacte.
La intalnire au fost prezenti peste 50 de colegi, dornici de aceasta intalnire. Unii nu au putut veni, altii nu mai sunt! Din pacate, nu ne-am mai vazut din 1985, decat intamplator.

Saturday, May 16, was the Reviewing of 50 years after graduation from high school "Avram Iancu" Aiud, which I graduated in 1965 .... !!
At that time, we were two classes of students, one of the human sciences and other of Sciences ... I graduated sciences, because I liked sciences.
The meeting have been present over 50 colleagues, eager to this meeting. Some could not come, others are no longer! Unfortunately, we have not seen since 1985, except incidentally.


Ne-am intalnit la liceu de la ora 10, apoi la ora 11 a urmat ora de dirigintie. S-a strigat catalogul si fiecare si-a prezentat pe scurt realizarile din cei 50 de ani trecuti. Am constatat cu bucurie ca aproximativ 90% din colegii mei au facut studii universitare si sunt bine realizati. Desigur, au vorbit si despre copii si nepoti!
Dupa ora de dirigintie, la care a fost prezenta si una din profesoarele noastre, d-na Retegan, ne-am dus la un restaurant unde s-a organizat masa festiva si ne-am distrat foarte bine pana seara tarziu...Am schimbat impresii, amintiri, numere de telefon, am facut fotografii...

We met in the high school at abot 10, then at 11 o'clock was a festivity, when it was reading the list of students and each has outlined the achievements of the 50 years. I was glad that about 90% of my classmates have university degrees and are well done .... sure, they also talked about their children and grandchildren!
After that we went to a restaurant where a festive dinner was organized and we had a great time till late. We exchanged impressions, memories, phone numbers, I took pictures ...

Expozitia Marijane Bitulescu & Relu Bitulescu


Din 5 mai, Galeria Simeza gazduieste expozitia "Intre lumi" cu lucrari ale Marijanei Bitulescu si ale sotului ei, pictorul Relu Bitulescu. Am vizitat expozitia de doua ori.

Imi plac foarte mult creatiile textile ale Marijanei Bitulescu, sunt precum niste tablouri lucrate din materiale textile. Ma incanta compozitiile sale deosebite, realizate din materiale adesea nepretentioase. Ador modul cum foloseste cromatica si textura lor pentru a crea un puternic impact vizual. Inafara de lucrarile textile, Marijana Bitulescu a prezentat si niste  tapiserii haut lisse, foarte frumoase.
 
From May 5, Simeza Gallery hosts the exhibition "Between Worlds" with works made by Marijan Bitulescu and her husband, the painter Relu Bitulescu. I like a lot Marijan Bitulescu's textile creations, they are like paintings made of textile materials. I'm excited by its special compositions made from materials often unpretentious. I love how she uses the color and texture to create a strong visual impact. Apart from textile works, Marijana Bitulescu presented haut lisse tapestries, yhey are also very beautiful.

Cateva fotografii facute in aceasta expozitie.....some pictures from this exibition.
