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…

 

 

 

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 🙂

December 14- Love, the most important ingredient

Dear December,

As I am entering a busy week, professionally speaking, and felt stressed up despite my to-do lists and sub-lists. The situation after the last meeting with the wannabe boss has left me suspended without any concrete prospect.

 

But, all of a sudden, I had an epiphany: ok, April, all these things are important. (By the way, I have already filled several printable lists for Santa Claus).

But what is my number 1? The most important of all?

Love. Love is the no 1 ingredient for a celebration. THE thing to make us smile.

It would be great to have a family with young children, to celebrate with, but I can’t produce one in a few days. Maybe I can borrow someone else’s. And a boyfriend that matches with them. A handsome guy with children? Divorced? Not too broken-hearted. Should I keep him after the holidays?

Being in love, sharing time with people we love, be around children, imagination, creativity, offer presents!

With or without means, letting love flow in forms of deserts, invitations, gifts, … kisses… fairy tales…

All the rest seems so secondary…

 

December 13- Preparation: for love, Christmas, …

Dear December,

preparing for Christmas is quiet a thing… and preparing for love?

If we go to a party, we usually prepare: our hair, clothes, …

If we invite friends to our place, we prepare something, (at least the table if we order!)

If we have a job interview or important professional meeting, also.

There is Advent to prepare for Christmas.

So why would love be different?

I am sleepy, so I will get to the essentials, after a quick search:

a.  Re-Learn Yourself: love oneself

b Get rid of all the dirty laundry (aka exes) that is no longer serving you. 

c. Create a life you adore

c Open to the mystery of life

What does it mean? Oh, you are asking too many questions December! I told you I had a long day. I can refer to an article, and will get back to it … tomorrow 🙂

November 13- Paris getting ready for Christmas: time for a wish

Dear November,

with birthday and Christmas approaching, I feel like it is time for a wish. Super models have come to Paris to inaugurate the Christmas collections and decorations of the biggest department stores: Galleries Laffayette, Printemps, … super models Jerry Hall, Kate Moss and Cara Delevigne.

But my favorite department store is the “Bon MarchĂ©”, that makes you feel part of a fairy tale: -)

Actually the photo is from last year’s decoration, because this year it is even more beautiful…

What did you ask? How about my goals? Of course I have been focusing on them… Funding the artistic project, contacting senior artists and people from the art world to get some support… I started telling around me that I am a candidate…

Apart from that I actually prepare my rendezvous with the wannabe boss next week, but couldn’t I use a distraction?
