February 4, 2016: challenge day 7 of 60-a friend from the past

Hello February,

today I did a sort of update because I run into a friend, and he asked me questions which hurt: how is it going with your projects April? Are you making any money? Finally? Not YET? So what was the idea of the London move? To finish faster with your economies?

I told him of course about the Bloggers Bash in June, the concept I have been working on with local artists from the South of France and the potential of the new artistic platform in London. But, I have to be honest. Part of me, kind of worried.

And the other part? The other part is the one which took the risk to come over here. And apparently it is stronger because it had results. What is my friend doing?

He is looking for purpose in life. And he is exploring different directions, because the passion is not there yet. But he is a lover of life, nice food, beautiful moments, I have faith in him.

Now you have another case, a friend who takes a two-year break from his dream to get the money he needs to later fulfill it. He is focused and he has a strategy. Some financial security first. His objective? To pay himself an expensive school for cinema.

And finally, my case. I am doing things I am passionate about, and take risks right now. occasionally, I can be scared.

What would you say February? Should we burn the bridge behind us if you want to advance 🙂

Second thoughts have no place here April.

June 22- The art of being passionate, provocative and diplomatic

Hello June,

you want to know how I spent my Sunday? No you want me to know if there is any progress related to my objectives. Well yes, there is.

For the first part of the day I saw a couple of friends. I asked the girl, in her early twenty’s, what is her objective. She is in Paris for six months now, and I thought I might be of help. She took my question as an intrusion, and responded that for the moment she is waiting for the universe to inspire her something she could even die for, and then she will take action. Although I was a bit annoyed to find myself in the role of a parental figure who is controlling, I can’t help respecting passionate people.

Later, I had dinner with a completely different person: an actor I have met three years’ ago, and he is passing by through Paris. He is very diplomatic and capable to understand different sides. I wanted to see if there would be a possibility for a future collaboration. He is someone I get along well, and I like his work. Were he available from a romantic point of view it would have been great, but no. Anyway, he is also involved in some form of collaboration with the wannabe boss. But this is almost over, after a tour they have recently done. So I jumped in and I offered a new perspective.

Now, is this the best way to deal with my wannabe boss? My friend thinks I should avoid any form of conflict and try to be as humble as possible, showing him how intelligent, powerful etc he is. I have been acting in a proud way. As if the world were mine and hierarchy didn’t exist.

I am sorry I left my feelings getting involved, but I like to be treated with respect. I also admit having a side that likes to create a nice “scene”; something that could be part of a future novel. It kind of amuses me even if it is dangerous.

Anyway, this event belongs to the past, it happened a year and a half ago; the question is the present and the future.

My purpose is to advance with my writing and the artistic projects that are so dear to me.

With people who are also enthusiastic and who support each other in co-creating.

Just to illustrate my point, the sculpture of Eros and Psyche by Antonio Canova, both indispensable for creation!
