The books I'm reading

When I was a young boy, I used to read quite a lot of books. Well, I definitely didn't spent my leisure time in front of the TV, since there were only two TV channels those days in Poland. At the age of seventeen, I got one of the best books I've ever read, i.e. Arch of Triumph by Erich Maria Remarque . By the way, I've read almost all his books, among others: All Quiet On the Western Front, Three Comrades, The Black Obelisk and of course Night in Lisbon.
I also remember wery well the other books from my highschool time which I liked very much, like e.g. Bonjour tristesse by Françoise Sagan, although completely different. I read it in English, Polish and even Swedish lately.
Today, I have to share my spare time between my other passions for: photography, music, cars, foreign languages, travelling and not necessarily in that order.

I'm currently reading one of the
Sidney Sheldon's books: The other side of me. The book is about Sidney's life, who worked as a bus boy, a clerk, an usher, but dreamt of being so much more - a writer, and what's more, a writer in Hollywood. Well, we all have our dreams.

Flowery time

Za oknami mroz, a w domu zrobilo sie tak jakos wiosennie i mam nadzieje, ze tak wiosennie bedzie dlugo, bo kwiaty prosto z interflory. Hm... no coz, trzeba sie jakos pocieszac, a przy okazji jeszcze jeden powod do kontaktu z fotografia. Atmosfera swiat juz powoli mija i czas wrocic do codziennej rzeczywistosci. Mysle jednak, ze bedzie ona taka, jaka sami sobie stworzymy. Mam przynajmniej taka nadzieje.

(English) It's freezing outside and warm and cosy at our home. Well...maybe because of those beautiful flowers you can see in my photo. Christmas time is almost over, so I have to concentrate myself on work again. However, I'm always trying to find some time for my passion for photography and music.
