March 6- Concentration and wandering mind

Dear March,

I have been seriously un-concentrated today, and this is the moment I need to contact people for help. Instead, I was day-dreaming and consuming chocolate in important quantities. A friend will be visiting for the weekend, and my house is messed up, like my mind.

It feels as if I am up on a cloud, observing the things I am to do and instead of acting, I am completely on another planet.

It was sunny today in Paris, and this doesn’t help, especially after days of rain and bad weather.

What was I to do?

I finally declared defeat -just for today- and decided to start cleaning up my place.

The second thing, would be to contact some of my good friends which have been kind of excluded from my life during this period.

And finally, eat well -some vegetables and fruit- and get some rest.

March 4- Professional challenge of March 12: 1rst step accomplished :-)

Hello dear March,

yes, I did finish the first step for the March 12 challenge 🙂 I had to sent a proposal to a group of artists for a collaboration, and I did finish it TODAY.

It was an accomplishment, since every now and then I was thinking about my love life. Just thinking…

In order to do that, I changed two different cafés, worked from homme, ate half a chocolate (dark) and refused an invitation to go out for a drink with friends.

At the first café, there was a man and a woman sitting next to me, I had seen before and they started talking to me. The man is some kind of judo professor, and his companion an Italian.

At the second café they brought my usual order even before I asked. It is Mike, the café garçon who is quiet nice and makes me feel at home.

It is so inspiring to be surrounded to all sorts of people, bits of conversations come to me as I am writing or planing something, and they somehow give me inspiration 🙂

March 3- Challenge: a love from the past

Hello March,

what would you do in my place? If your first Parisian love, H, declared he has been thinking about you dearly for the last… years? Well, small detail, H is in a relationship and has a little boy. (If he is married? We are in Paris, dear, living with someone is almost as if…).

I personally, felt confused. He was my first Parisian crush. I was a small town girl, he was Parisian, with this “je ne sais quoi” air. But he seemed to be a “dom Juan” kind of person, changing relationships as fast as the traffic light changes from green to red. Mmm, yes, I had been one of these relationships. And then I left, it didn’t feel healthy. He was telling me he didn’t love me and was full of caprices. What do you mean so am I?

So now, H, who had been in Norway for his work, came back to Paris and contacted me. He seems to be very much in love with me. To cherish the moments we spent together a few years ago. And to be afraid of his attraction for me. Because I am such a “femme fatale”.

This is very flattering in a way, don’t you think?

But what if it were BS?

For example, may be he is nostalgic of his twenties and finding an ex-girlfriend of this period could make him feel good. Like a reunion in a way.

He hasn’t been a very faithful type of person in the past. He might just want to keep on with his relationship and have some distractions here and there. Why not declare his love?

He is bored with his life and tries to spice it up by confusing other people too.

He could even be sincere, but in the end, he seems to be pretty comfortable in his life style.

Because deep down I am a simple girl and think that a loving couple involves two people. And this is quiet enough.

March 2- Welcome March!

Welcome dear March!

You arrived with sun, rain, and wind, we didn’t know in what rhythm to dance today in Paris; but this is spring, and this is also how love makes you feel I guess 🙂

Do the “in-love” couples at my usual café become more numerous, or is it me who has become more attentive to the demonstration of love?

In any case, spring is arriving fast and the light in the city is different, we all feel excited with the expectation of new life!

New love, old love appearing again, love is in the air.

How about work? How about it? My mind seems to be floating since Sunday, but I feel very alert, so I sense that things will go smoothly 😉

Spring is a type of regeneration of nature, and we are part of it, so we reborn in a way;

And we inevitably transform and find in us forces we ignored a while ago!
