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 27, 2017-Dealing with Post-Christmas blues

Hello December,

Christmas is great for family, but going back to my childhood family as an adult makes me feel not having a family unit of my own, which is kind of lonely.

My big, medium and small love affairs have lost their breath and I find myself beautifying the past because of present boredom.

So, how do I deal with the post-Christmas blues after this?

The truth is, I have been focusing on work for a while.

Is it time to be an actor in my everyday life and not just an observer.

What is the play I want to play?

Am I the main character of my play, or just a bystander?

So, how does this work?

If you are a writer, you are an observer and a bystander, in a certain way. But being an author makes us also a creator. And we can rewrite our play.

What does my favorite play look like?

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 15, 2017- Home for Christmas

Hello December,

I just got home for Christmas and I already had a mini-crisis with my father feeling old and not with much life left. I only said he should think of every day, but I couldn’t help feeling overwhelmed to have to raise his spirits.

So, what do I do to lift myself up, flying in the sky?

I go out for coffee, although it’s better to have a green juice. Maybe I will have both. And then, I connect with my friends.

I change the appearance of my blog 🙂

And after that, I look for my projects, as the project to publish my poetry…

 

 

 

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 🙂

January 14, 2017- Past, Present and Future selfs

Hello January,

When I visit my hometown, I am usually torn between my past, present and future self.

The past self, is what people used to know me for. It is a powerful self, because they have not followed through the changes I went through. There are things I might have not liked of this self, at the time. It could be that I have been shy.

And then, if I stay too long in one place, I feel that I betray my future self. Especially when I grow out of the image others see me for there. So I need to go to this new place where I can reinvent myself.

The old self could be great, but I might have disagreed with the public persona, others shared for me. For example, if I have been this shy kid, I might want to go places where I will be known for my adventurous spirit and exploits.

And if this is the case, I might again need to move on and also be known as someone who is bonding and member of a community.

Is there a best place? Is there Homme?

Homme can be everywhere, if it allows us to have been, to be and to continue becoming, exploring, loving, developing, independently of age.

Conversations about change: Future Self (5/6)

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?

September 6, 2016: Back to School and back to London!

Hello there September

I just got back to London with a flue after a month and a half absence in the South of France. Actually, that is where I come from. It has been working for an art exhibition, family, book presentations. And some real holidays.

And now where to April? To London for another year!

With desires, fears and wishes on the bags, I brought with me.

An update of my last adventures? It might help me to set new goals for the ” rentrée”, or getting back to school.

The first year in London worked quite well, and I got to publish my first book, in France in the meanwhile.

I am up to for another year in London, should I look for a regular job or finish my last book or both?

In the meanwhile, I am going for some chocolate to get inspiration!
