August 14, 2018- Update on Love, Work and Vacation

Dear August,

where have I been all this time? Was it on a little white cloud, on the wings of love, forgetting all my everyday life practical questions?

Almost, I was up, down, and around.

My June love story lost steam and practically disappeared in July.

I managed to get myself a virus and I spent a lot of time sleeping and watching Disney and Dreamworks creations (from the Trolls to Baby Boss…)

Anyway, I realized a vacation is a must, and I landed on my home-town where I spent time with family and friends and I decided that all I needed is sleep, rest and relax.

It is only in August that I emerged and I started writing, again, the sequel of my first novel;

Well, to go back to love questions, do I feel sad?

Not exactly.

Was I in love?

I was grateful to have this good looking, intelligent, successful, active, thoughtful guy, full of attentions. I saw fireworks!

But somehow, I stressed up.

Was it for real?

It was almost too good to be true.

This guy, a 40 year-old, was showering me with attentions for a whole month, and I think that I was responding positively but somewhat with less enthusiasm than his.

He seemed serious about his career coming out of a two year relationship and we had common friends. Not the kind of person who was frivolous and flirtatious here and there.

Was it my instinct of self-preservation or my self-sabotage side that wanted for things to go more slowly?

in any case, my perfect june man left for a two-week business trip and when he came back to London, he found me and my virus, and then he just… vanished!

Now that I am back in full health, I contemplate if a little virus can chase away a strong connexion or dissipate a buble that wasn’t love.

Because I am not interested in the fast food of love: the kind of place where you are served fast, and bad quality food.

I am for the three star Michelin restaurant, where food is prepared with the best ingredients and it takes its time to arrive in your plate.

This fast in love fast out of love person, was looking for appearances.

Good luck to each of us and as they say in fairy tales, “and they lived happily ever after”, in our separate ways, in this case!

P.S. A small “clin d’oeil for my friend Paul @ SocialMedia who asked me how things go!

December 31, 2017-Ready for a 2017 Year in Review?

Hello December,

the year is close to an end – and it’s time for a review, without letting the food and desert debaucheries weaken my critical judgement.

How do I have fun in a creative way?

Probably, by doing things with people who appreciate and love me, even if it’s just one person. And I’d better be one of them. People I also love and appreciate.

Starting with ourselves, giving some love and appreciation for whatever we have accomplished, tried, failed, imagined, … is the first step I guess.

There is always better and higher.

But don’t we deserve a WELL DONE, for our efforts, struggles and for just being around?

 

December 22, 2017- Christmas around the corner

Hello December,

with Christmas on the doorstep, some season’s songs are a must. The only thing, they don’t inspire me to finish this project, and it’s for today.

They inspire me more to stay home with a cup of chocolate and a good book 🙂

Well, both could be possible if I prioritize.

It’s great to take some time to recharge our batteries with people we love.

December 6, 2017- Christmas is on its way!

Hello December,

after being grateful for finding a home, I went back to being afraid: I feel tired, and my goals seem still far. What if I don’t have the energy to do what I want?

My part-time job in the gallery is close to what I do, but it takes my time out of my creative energy for writing?

What if I get stuck there, in a limbo situation?

With half of the boxes from the move still closed, it is easy to think like that.

So, what do I do?

Have morning coffee, to begin with.

Secondly, I am blogging.

And thirdly, I will get an energizing drink, probably green, or ginger and lemon and turmeric to give me some extra energy.

Christmas is on its way!

Energy somehow will come back.

Getting some rest is also important 🙂

October 31, 2017- Halloween origins and reasons to celebrate

Hello October,

Halloween is around the corner, and although it was not in my tradition to celebrate it, I looked around for information. Apparently, the origins go back to the ancien Celts, so it is well rooted in the UK where I happen to live right now.

Something I could relate with? Apparently, for the Celts, November 1st was New Year’s Eve, and something is dying for something else to be born, as winter is coming.

So I take it as a new beginning, and a day with mystery and magic, which I rather enjoy.

Especially with a nice desert and with a glass of wine.

At least I am waiting to see what my friends have in mind, who will celebrate it tonight and invited me over!

August 12, 2017-Going South-French Riviera time

Hello August,

Isn’t it great to go for a swim on a hot day of August? Enough of London and of rainy days, welcome South of France!

This is not exactly where I have been but being close to the sea is enough to recharge my energy.

And yes, in my new Samurai attitude I do wake up early and I have a lot of work to do. There is a deadline for the 17th of August already and another one beginning of September.

But I take it easy 🙂

Happy 2017! It is always time to set goals ;-)

Hello January and welcome,

here I am, at the threshold of a new year, wanting to start with the attitude of a Champion: after all, a change starts from ourselves.

my first wish has been to have more fun, and to kiss -my soul mate- every day

this is a very way to kickstart the year in a good mood!

Will I behave?

Some of the time, yes.

I will follow my heart and I will be creative and flexible

And yes, doing something right away might help.

Right now, I am writing from my family’s home in the South of France.

How will I enhance my artistic life in 2017?

How about having a project I love and contacting the best people I know, or I don’t know- personally, to discuss it?
