Cool Grandmother

     While living at its fullest my last days as a student- with exams day by day and trying to finish my thesis in the unbearably hot Romanian summer, I catch myself imagining my life after all of these will end...
     I want to believe that many years of playing chess are ahead of me, many tournaments, lots of training, many wins... I wonder for how long I am going to enjoy this stuff, 5 years, 10 years, 2 decades, all my life? I really hope for it to be so. I hope to live long enough in order to be the cool grandmother who participates at Veteran Championships and tells her grandchildren about the adventures of a lifetime of being a chess player!
     I remember once laughing with my friends about us being 65, gathering all our "gang of WGM" at a Veteran World  Championship and having the time of our lives while coming all so pretty to the games, eying the U55 guys :))) Well, joke apart, I want to be that kind of  grandmother, the one with whom kids want to go out to listen to her stories... Maybe I could even teach them how to play chess, if it will survive 40 more years...
     Forgive me for this strange post, the source of this thoughts was the recently watched trailer of a chess movie, with a chess player starring. You can watch it here:

     Wish you all a nice end of week!

  1. Multumesc ca ai postat gandurile tale, filmuletul si linkul. Am recunoscut oamenii pe care am avut placere sa fac cunostinta cand am trait in Romania.

    Succes cu examenele tale!

  2. Irina, Reading your post I am reminded of the quote "Of chess it has been said that life is not long enough for it, but that is the fault of life, not chess." Irving Chernev or William Ewart Napier. I played tournament chess for 10 years from age 24 to 34. Chess is a beautiful sport and you are a special talent. You may find additional activities that you are also good at and love, places and people to explore. One day very soon you will wake up and be 50 ish like me...(but I still feel much the same I did at 24 or 34) Life is not a dress rehearsal. All The best!
