Oana's Blog on Human Nature

Author Oana takes on our daily lives and experiences from a very sarcastic humorous perspective.
Born in Bucharest, Romania, Oana lived twenty years under the grotesque dictatorial regime of Ceausescu. After the fall of the communism in 1989 she studied languages at the University in Bucharest, then received her Master’s at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. English is her third language.
She has worn many hats, working as a translator, as a teacher, and eventually caring for animals both domestic and wild. She volunteered and worked for wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centers both in the US and Canada.
She lives in Arizona, where she continues to dedicate most of her time to her animals and to writing.
Her first book, The Healings was released in November 2010.

ON GUILT

I read the letter with small graphics – pills, stethoscope, thermometer – in silence, tears in my eyes. I’m not sure if the pain is caused by the aching tooth or by the insurance company denying my claim. This time the reason is simple: did I really need to seek a second opinion? In vain, I tried to explain to them that it was not my idea. My doctor suggested that I seek a second opinion from a fe...
