A new chapter of life, other friends, other life experiences were followed with my employment at Dacia Automobile, from 1988 to the present. I love to read, to write to love ... I love everything that is beautiful, all that is with poetry I have been fancier of leftists in high school years, I have written for school, friends and acquaintances, but I never published at that time.
