Broken house

For a person who adores love poetry and tries to write about romance and passion mostly, weirdly, I don’t watch romantic movies, I prefer thrillers and crime stories. Many times I’ve wondered if some of those horrible things in the movies happen to me how will I react, what will I feel? One thing I can tell you, no movie can prepare you for a bad moment that had turned into a reality!

A week ago I came home late in the evening, dreaming to go to bed and just sleep, I unlocked the entrance door, only to find out that someone had broken into my house through the balcony door. I’ve seen people in movies  sitting down on the floor from the shock, not being able to process what has happened, I can tell you, the bad adrenaline that comes into your veins at the sight of your cupboards emptied on the floor, doesn’t let you sit, but just walk around in circles, trying to remember the number of the police.

I’m not the first and probably I won’t be the last to go through such experience, unfortunately freedom and democracy come with violence and crime. And I don’t feel sorry for the money or the electronic devices stolen, I’ll work, make more money and purchase new iPod, new laptop, new mobile, new DVD or new anything that I need to have around. And it’s not about the jewelry missing/ apart from a golden chain I had from my granny/, I’ll get new ones, even shinier and pretties bracelets. It’s about the privacy and the inside peace someone broke into, it’s about the fact that even in a free world one has to live locked and isolated to keep his personal moments sacred.

It bothered me that I found the box with hand-written letters from friends thrown on the ground and the paper was marked by ugly, dirty shoes. It bothered me that on my computer I had nearly 170 pages of the book I was writing and research about it, that silly me didn’t have the time to back up completely. It’s not that I can’t start from the beginning, I am a stubborn when it comes to achieving things, but one year of good writing is now gone and who knows if I will get the same mood to rewrite everything from the beginning.

I am currently without a laptop, but hopefully I will have a new one in the next couple of weeks. Until then, don’t think that I’ve forgotten you, be well and smile! Love and peace from “a-little-broken” me!

    Oh! That so sad.. Things are not much important for us but the memories and words.. these two things can’t be recovered with the same flavor.. so sad to hear about your loss. What I can wish for that at least you get your 170 pages back somehow.

    Dear Blaga,
    I’m so sorry to hear about the shock and bad feelings you had to go through…but as you said – things are always replaceble. I understand that the biggest loss is actually the book you were writing, so many hours of work are lost…Yet – I have no doubts that you’ll do even better in your future writing. The important thing is that you are ok and safe.
    Take your time. Be well. We’ll be here for your return :)
    love and hugs/Eclipse

    I’m sorry to hear about that unfortunate incident, hoping you’ll be able to recover your loss. Stay well for now and be safe!

    Oh, so sorry, Blaga. I interrupted a home invasion in December…we had gone to bed early on a Saturday night. Had to replace windows and install an alarm system. Such a feeling of violation, but now one hurt. The cost: about 3K$ and a ruptured sense of security.

  7. Bluejellybeans Says:

    I’m so sorry to hear this Blaga… I’ve been there (several times actually) and know exactly how you feel. But I’m glad you had chosen to keep on going and take the high road :)

  8. Michelle Wallace Says:

    Hi Blaga. I haven’t visited you for a while. I’m so sorry to hear of your misfortune! I know the feeling… last week, somebody broke into my garage and stole valuable music equipment… it’s just not fair!!
    The worse part is the invasion of one’s privacy…
    Keep your chin up… I know it’s difficult…

  9. saanchit Says:

    horrible thing to happen …. but the best of the writings have come from people who has gone through the most horrible things in life. I say your book must contain such an incident. I hope you are able to write back all of your stuff. Take care :)

    Blaga, you are the 2nd blogger on my “follow list” that this week had their house broken. I am very annoyed by the fact that they have stolen your piece of work. And those valuable letters that they dirtied …horrible people. Please take care of yourself and hope your neighbors would be alerted and be aware of this event. But to me, it is good if you can shout it out – frustrations and anger without a care – regarding this event in your life. It’s not something easily forgotten and keeping your cool has limits.
    Be well and hope for your wellness. I am still looking forward to your beautiful writing!

    Oh, Blaga! I will reply here though I know you won’t seen it soon. I’m am so so sorry and sad to know this happened to you. You are right. You will replace most of the material things; but the invasion is much harder to get past. I hope you will heal soon and more grateful than I can say that you weren’t there when the break-in occured.

    I write … snail mail!

    Much affection,

      I was thinking of writing you a snail mail too just before the break in, now that things are sort of back to normal I’ll definitely do that and will be waiting for your letter too! Thank you Jamie! Love!

  12. Broken Sparkles Says:

    Thank you everyone for you kind words and moral support! I am now back to writing and looking forward to catching up with all your last posts that I’ve missed! You are all great! Thank you!

    Blaga, like everyone else, I am so sorry this happened to you! :( I hope they catch the people who did it. The loss of the material things can be regained, although the loss of your book has got to be devastating. I can’t even imagine. At least YOU are SAFE! It may not feel like it for awhile, but I am thankful you didn’t walk in on them in the act. It may not make you feel any better, but I mailed you a letter/package this last weekend, so it is on its way to you as I type this. :) Be well, dear friend. Things are bound to get better soon!

    • Broken Sparkles Says:

      Thank you for your support my sweet Corina! It’s a long story to fit in a comment and I meant to send you a letter, so I think now it’s a good time to do that :) Looking forward to your one! Many hugs!
