Here I am with another blog post written in English. Someone told me
that I would have had more readers if I had written it in the Czech
language. Perhaps. But I do not post articles on my blog to get as many
readers as possible. I don’t care about statistics. I simply
write for friends...
The ancient Romans already knew it
When I read the ancient Roman texts, I realise that there is a truth in
them that people forget and then rediscover. It is known by different
names: Psychology, Democracy, Sociology – but everything has already

My poem in English published for a change. Enjoy!
Do you really want to live forever?
There is only one way to physical immortality. Not individual
immortality (we know what the way of all flesh is and sometimes certain

our lifetime will not help us in the final hour (or second) and we will
have to leave it behind on Earth and continue on alone, again.
To own or not to own
Nobody can own anything, for we are born empty-handed
and we also die empty-handed. During our lifetime, we are just given
things to use for a while, but finally the loan is paid back and the
accumulated things remain deserted, in a better case scenario, to be
used by others, family members or just anonymous strangers...
(yes, another poem)
After the hilarious success of the previously posted English poem, I
publish another piece of my poetry. Enjoy!
Winter is here!
Instead of complaining about the cold weather, I will take
advantage of the pleasures it brings. I am going to build snowmen and snow forests (as I do almost every winter anyway. It is so

is covered in snow, everything is white.. Yes, it is beautiful!
