The paper boat and the crocodile

I'm not one to explain myself too much sometimes, which makes people often get the wrong idea about what I mean by something. "Ok, that's weird", they will laugh and just forget about my little quirks.

I will try to explain myself a little bit now, since with the addition of a wallpaper that I really like, my blog has become a bit of a mix of sorts.


Who is the crocodile? Well, of course, me. It has been a symbol that has come up in various occasions to represent me, mostly by accident and without planning. I am the grinning crocodile, which means I will be quite skeptical and most of all, show my teeth to the world, just to make sure everyone understands things clearly and doesn't require too much explanations. Like I am offering now.

Where did the crocodile come from? Hmm, good question. I suppose it was the quirkiest response I could come up to virtually any question. "What did he find there?" "A crocodile!" Well, it does sound more interesting and snappier in Romanian.

That is pretty much the facade that everyone sees. However, the crocodile is a bit more as well. To those who know how to understand it.

Now, back to my new wallpaper, which is the sort of image I had been looking for ever since trying to give meaning to this blog.

Those who know me and have had the pleasure to see me in an idle moment with paper at hand know that I like to make paper boats. Why paper boats? There is something quite romantic about paper boats, isn't there? A fragile little thing that, if set on water, soon sinks to the bottom. It is an oxymoron... it ought to float, yet paper never manages to do that for more than a few minutes.

This is exactly the feeling I want to convey with my writings, the core meaning of it all.

Now, you may look at the image and consider you have understood it all, or you could hop on in my little paper boat and sail with me on to new realms.
