January 13, 2016: Looking to the past for inspiration

Hello dear fresh January,

for resolutions to be more inspired, I dived into my old diaries, to see what I really liked and wanted at the time. I am a journal, diary addict since I were 8 years old. Not that I have been writing every day, but the love affair with words goes back to my childhood.

What did I find out? I wanted to be a writer very early in life, as an adolescent trying to send my first novels to some kind of literary competition. But I suffered from lack of confidence. Was I talented enough? Was this wish out of reach?

Why would that be? A wish, a desire, if strong, is enough in itself.

I also felt kind of imprisoned at school, following hours of boring, to me, classes, waiting for the moment to escape.

And a difficulty to find a like-minded community in the cercle of my classmates and family.

But then, this is what made me kick the road and get to Paris, or London, among other places.

Did I find everything I was looking for?

I was looking more for a fresh place to co-create.

But after all, this place of non-censure, love and acceptance, is within ourself.

So, new resolutions will take into consideration the love for freedom, new experiences, love and connexion, and most of all, sharing the worlds of imagination with other human beings!

so you want to be a writer?

I will see what Charles Bukowski has to say on the question…

January 11, 2016: Resolutions

Welcome 2016 and January!

I wish you a happy stay with us, and  thank you for the extra chocolates, parties and other Santa Claus presents: my excuse for taking my time to write!

Yes, a good rest is a way to kick-start 2016, with nice food, friends, family, and some time staring happily around in a state of nirvana.

After this meditative state I am ready to start communicating my 2016 resolutions and ask for your help to materialize them 😉
