ABOUT REVERENCE

Welcome to my blog,

the first in a triad inaugurated in 2009, along with

The English Learners’ Blog (2010), and

The Incomplete Fantasy We Call Love (2011).

Apart from this triad, you are invited to visit a  fourth blog dedicated to the work and art of musician Atma Anur: Phosphorous Heads Lit By Atma Anur (2011).

Brief Introduction to My Irreverent Blog

Here you can find out more about my writings, musings, and creative activity, including music writing, lyric writing, essay writing, articles, quotes from favourite books and movies, recommended links and events, along with various commentaries on culture and the life of an English-writing Romanian abroad.

For literature and music lovers I recommend

  • my constantly reshaping, partly visible Metaphor Box,
  • singing in the shower of unpredictable Free Falling Words accompanying free falling music,  to lyrics written to be sung to Greg Howe’s  Morning View, or others written to be read with Al Di Meola’s Mediterranean Sundance.

You might like to check the  Sound Metamorphoses that record the stories behind some of my songs. Stories or no stories, in the end of it all, it’s all about the music that people remember, the words that last, the movies that move and transform you, about the people you love, learn from and admire.

For a synthesis of biography in-the-making,  visit my BIO page.

If you have something that you would like to share, hit the “Leave a comment” button or access the page that claims Your Say,to place a comment.

Whether you are here for a first visit or you decided to return, I thank you and invite you to explore further on, to enjoy and share your discoveries!

Whoever you are, and wherever you come from, feel welcome to discover reverence in a world most irreverent, to celebrate love regardless of its presence; feel welcome to read excerpts from  my debut poetry volume, “The Incomplete Fantasy We Call Love,” with selected poems to be made available on the new blog dedicated to it, or read some other poems that don’t belong to me.

The Incomplete Fantasy We Call Love - Cover by Klaudia Krupa

Last but not least, stay tuned for my up-coming debut CD that is still etching its way into bringing each of us back to ourselves.

Here I am,  beneath a veil of inevitable spirals of irreverence, waving at you.

Most irreverently yours,

Alina Alens

  1. People who upset the status quo are sometimes seen as being “irreverent” when in actuality they are the most reverent, that is to say, that they are merely living out the principles of an idea or concept to the fullest extent which others then consequently take offense at.

  7. “Mark Twain said irreverence is basically the champion of liberty if not its only defender, that’s why we are there. We’re there to shake it up. And that’s what we gotta do.”
