Welcome dear May!
I spent the first part of the day preparing my luggage and I got myself on the train in the afternoon: direction, Paris! The hometown visit was a big chapter in April, but it was time to end it.
Seated in my place, I had enough time to reflect on my stay. From a practical point of view, I submitted an application for funding and got some answers considering my novel’s publication.
Ok, but is this enough? To be honest, I need to work more hours, the hometown stay was close to a holiday. There was some laziness and indulging in negative feelings, involved.
Yes, but some laziness is important, letting our mind wander to capture new ideas, energies, colors, people! Working under pressure is not very productive either. It is so precious to be able to create one’s own world, we are so lucky to have imagination to serve us! And then we can come back to reality and share our creation.
When I arrived in Paris in the evening, it was raining heavily; nothing to do with the South. But hey, it is May first! Muguet flowers were sold all over the place, and people were out for drinks and walks.
I met briefly with a friend and then went for a drink by myself in the Saint Germain area. I felt a feeling between loneliness and happiness. I would have liked to share this moment. But I am happy to be back.
