Mine!Mano!

I had an experience I’m going to talk about for only a little while.

One sunny summer’s day some six years ago me and my family were traveling to our village, as we always do. But there our grand-parents had a surprise for us. A little dog(mažas šunelis). It had never owned a pet before that and I didn’t after. We didn’t have him for a long time, but he was always there when we came to our village. It was a friendship in ways I haven’t experienced before, but I dare not say that the dog was mine. I didn’t know until he was gone that it was an offspring of our neighbors dogs, I didn’t find out how did he go away.

Giving

I want to begin this post and a new category by writing a  long sentence.

I want to celebrate the effort of individuals who spend their free time and energy creating, supporting, participating in initiatives that are directed towards helping other individuals cope with their misfortunes.

There. Maybe you know that Europe is one of the richest areas in the world. Maybe you are not one of “17% of EU citizens with such limited resources that they cannot afford the basics”. Maybe you are not discriminated in your job position.

One of European Union’s main goals this year is to make sure, that you do not think that those 17% do not exist. To spread awareness. In 2010 we have “European Year for Combating Poverty and Social Exclusion”.

Alikatikata!

It is my first attempt to post a serious message on this blog which I have had for over half a year now. I don’t know what exactly I will put in here in the future, whether my words will help someone or will anyone help me. I don’t know what style my blog will be in, will it transform to a website, what language will I use.

I know that I will use this place for issues. Solving issues. Looking at issues from a different angle ( Did you know that the word issue has two different pronunciations? ).  Searching for issues. Spreading awareness about issues.  I will also try to do it creatively, interestingly and usefully! That means paintings, videos, short stories, photos, quotes, polls or brief messages from mine our your’s invisible friend may be included. 🙂

What is an issue, then?

According to Oxford Concise English Dictionary, the first meaning is “An important topic for debate or resolution.” Alternatively, you can imagine that you are a directed graph and you are traveling from point A to point B, but you are also a multigraph(multiple edges), so you have many ways to travel…

How else can you that the subject is, actually, an issue? Again, Oxford Thesaurus provides many suggestions: matter(in question), question, point, affair, case, subject, topic, problem, bone of contention…

Finally, I hope not to go round in circles while improving this blog!

I enclose a picture which reminds me 2009 most! It was me helping even with little things  @ Europeade 2009, Klaipėda
