June 5, 2015- I need a good strategy

Dear June,

more than 31° Celcius today in Paris! My summer clothes and shoes were still hiding and all of a sudden I had to find something light to wear! It felt like a holiday … almost… things changed in the evening with a storm.

This day could serve a metaphor for me: I started in the morning with a visit to a “salon de beauté”. It is something to do when I get stressed up. And then I have to work until almost midnight. I guess I am a night-bird.

It was at about 1.00 that I went back to my different projects:

-Istanbul, to begin with. I am to get there by the end of the month with a group of artists. Will I get paled? Probably no. Will I get funding from the wannabe boss? He promised, but …

-A Brazilian artist I work with arrives in Paris just before this event and I am in touch with him for whatever he might need in terms of organization.

Then, there is something else for early September.

Am I spending much time for things that might not pay off materially? Yes and no.

Not right away.

I need a strategy. That is the thing.

Am I in denial, ignoring the realities of the artistic life in Paris?

I probably am.

One of my strategies has been to built international collaborations, but it hasn’t worked well enough.

Now, I need a new strategy.

A strategy that agrees with my nature.

As a person.

As an artist.

As an inspired and unorganized event organizer.

  1. Have a good trip in Istanbul. Ça a l’air très à la mode.
    A friend of mine just spent a month there. She loved it.
    Bon voyage.
