June 26, 2017- Motivation-third week and focus on finishing

Hello June,

I don’t know if my morning posts become sleepier, but in any case this is very possible as I get up between 6.00 and 7.00.

Looking back at the last two weeks I think: how do I know I am heading in the right direction?

Is ‘this’ what makes me passionate?

Can I combine my loves in creative and different ways?

To begin with, I am putting together an art exhibit next week and there is preparation for it.

Another objective is to advance in two short stories which have been there for a while without having put the final word.

They need to go out and start getting feedback.

Not one day.

This week ๐Ÿ™‚

July 21, 2016: Update and new goals in London’s high temperatures

Hello July,

I have been extremely busy and almost burned out, I have sweat in the London heat and now I can ask, even in the heat of the action: is what I am doing meaningful? Does it take me to the direction of my dreams?

Heat in London, and everything slows down or speeds up, it change…

So, if I compare with the last two summers is there a change? I am again organising an artistic exhibition and stressing up… I really love it but there is some pressure to get everyone and everything together.

I now realise that even when the situation seems the most important, as if it were going to be critical for my future, it is not in the way I think. Another one comes equaly critical. And after all, I am still in this field.

But enjoying the process, is so important!

And after all, what matters more is the bigger picture, the reason why I do all these…. and it has to do with creativity and creation!

July 17, 2016: We are in this together!

Hello July,

are we in this together you and I? If you are too busy with June and August, drinking cocktails by the sea, please take some action!

After all, isn’t the purpose to Beautify the world? I am organizing artistic events, come on! In any case, getting some help is always important. Some things you just have to realize them as a team.

So here is the song of the Euro football dedicated to team-spirit:

July 11, 2016: When the going gets tough the tough get going

Hello July

I realise you are a very demanding month, the last two years I find myself organising summer art exhibitions and there is always a last-minute cancellation to fill in everybody’s nerves tense, and still… will pull it through…

So should I let myself stress? I try different solutions… after all, these summer exhibitions haven’t changed my life in a spectacular way… they contribute to the path I have taken, but there is not this one moment which determines everything… I guess there is always a possibility to change, to correct, …

This is what I tell myself, it is a marathon we are running for success, so the most important thing is to stay fit and continue running … not to sprint for 100 meters and then fall down breathless…

July 7, 2016- Prioritising

Hello July,

do you have someone prioritising for you? Or do you figure things out by yourself? Is it logic or is it your gut feeling?

Right now there are emergencies and decisions to be made:

for example, there is an exhibition coming for next month.

At the same time, I am to decide if I will look for a job or if I will wait for providence to get me funded while I write my book.

Or both?

London or Paris?

Or both?

July 1-4, 2016: Take action now!

Welcome, July!

ever since the first day I have been in an “action” mood, starting with dating… writing and … new art exhibition for the end of July!

Normally, I have a tendency to procrastinate, and leave things to take their natural course… but it is time to accelerate!

June 8 and 9, 2016: looking forward to the Blogger’s Bash in London

Hello June,

so there is this blogger meeting, the Blogger’s Bash I intend to attend for the first time, and meet people who share the same passion: writing and publishing something on line on a regular basis!

In the meanwhile, I have been dealing with practical questions: how to keep my environment organized, satisfy my flatmate who thinks I don’t clean the surfaces in the Kitchen every time I finish cooking -she might have a point- with creative writing, organizing my next artistic event and also looking for funding opportunities for another round in the UK.

Hmmm… and last but not least, I need to walk more than 15.000 steps a day so that our team wins the trophee at the working platform I am attached to.

So, where is the time for romance? Passion? Exhuberation? Soul searching?

To be honest, I start from soul-searching and being open to inspiration.

This is why I can forget spraying Dettol on the kitchen or to put my clothes in order.

This is also the reason why I start my working day after lunch.

And why I finish so late!

Do I want to change that?

I like writing late, the feeling that I am the only person around.

There is something rebellious about it, I am not sure I can find early in the morning.

What do you think?

Bloggers Bash – The Ultimate FAQ

June 5 and 6 2016: take your passion and make it happen ;-)

Hello there, June,

I am still in front of my desk with my eyes kind of aching after all these words I have been reading, writing, erasing, rewriting.

Actually I admit I have a publishing fear: I am writing, and then I don’t really show my work to the publishers I could have. Especially in the world contacted. Especially when it comes to writing a project for my other activity, the artistic project organization, I seem to feel overwhelmed: I still have on my mind the words of my critics, it doesn’t make sense, it is not well written, it is … not publishable for the brochure of the exhibition… you’d better stick to contact the catering… who do you think you are, the curator?

Just to make a long story short.

The thing is, I have dared to publish a book. But I went to find a publisher in my French village, probably hoping no one will find about it.

At least none of my Parisian, high brow critics.

I am a great performer, so I dare to explain things in meetings.

But when it comes to writing the text, there is something in the form that doesn’t fit the gallery’s standards.

I decided to change that.

I will sent as many projects as possible. They will wonder how on earth I found the time.

I sure must have a ghost-writer.

A slave I have seduced with my inhuman charm.

Or something of the kind;-)

June 3 and 4, 2016: crashing a party ;-)

Hello June

these last two days I kind of crashed a party: it was for my work not for pleasure; or maybe both ๐Ÿ™‚

I was told about the launch of an event in the near future and I had inside information about the whereabouts of the group who would prepare it. I vaguely know the person in charge so I appeared on the day X with an innocent smile: oh, I was just in the neighborhood!

Finally they asked me to stay and it is even possible that I will become part of the group in a formal way: at the same time I take a risk of passing the tolerance limit of the person in charge who might find me undisciplined …

I was feeling between happy for my risk and afraid I overdid it… is it worth being intelligent and coming up with good ideas if this was not the moment to speak my mind? Because when I get somewhere I forget about strategy and like to enjoy myself.

“Cerise sur le gรขteau” : one of the senior star-artists who was invited had a crush on me; he emailed me something that looked like a love letter today; he is definitely not my type and that could complicate things.

The only plus: he is living in Vancouver; so we might only see him again next month:

June 2nd, 2016: surprise cocktail with an ex

Hello June

tonight, at the cocktail party that followed the launching of an exhibition, I run into an old flame. He is a Belgian I had been in love with, briefly, during the preparation of an event,artistic event, and then he vanished somewhere in Germany. He has proposed to me to collaborate and I accepted even though working with him brings back memories.

He is in a relationship now, and he doesn’t seem very happy: this is probably the reason why he is bitter about my plans and perspectives. Not exactly what I need. Of course I need precision, I need to ask people with experience; but it is also good to have cheerleaders around who will tell you: just go for it!

At the same time I think he is talented and his idea makes sense. I shouldn’t throw it away but take a first step and see what it feels like working together again; in any case we don’t need any geographical proximity. And a lot of other people would be involved ๐Ÿ™‚
