September 2nd: Back to London!

Hello September and hello London!

I am back!!!

My clothes and stuff is on boxes on the floor, I barely have space to walk and there are moths in my new room!

After moving in out and around between countries, and living with my parents during the pandemic, I am back to working face to face, with the mask as an accessory.

I bought a beautiful rose flower, a vase and a lavender pot to face the moths.

The rose was amazing and beautiful. The lavender pot that is supposed to serve as a remedy was half price. I wasn’t sure it will survive indoors.

These purchases reflect my current attitude:

Hope for a better future, with the rose

Fear with a plant that is not at its best.

I will give a chance to the lavender also, at least asking for advice to make it feel better.

Hope and fear might live in the same person.

But if we take more care of the hope, the fear might go away and do its job: guard us only when it is necessary.

Happy 2021! Health, Hope, Happiness!

Welcome 2021! Welcome January!

I spent most of the day cooking and eating delicious food with my parents, talking to dear friends through zoom.

This is such a great time to connect with people we love!

Friends I am grateful for their help in difficult times

Friends who might need me

Friends with whom we share a good laugh, our tears, and fears

Friend I might have a crush on

A letter to Santa is something I would like to end my first day of the year: Santa is supposed to be done by now, but this is why I hope to get his attention since the pressure is off.

Asking for the good things, for us all: Magic, Beauty, Abundance, Hope, Health, Luck.

We have a chance to make things right and to grow to be better people this year.

Let’s do it!

December 31st, 2020- Making space for what is important, day 15- Gratitude

Dear December,

a time to think of the year that passed, and be thankful to still be here, that despite anything, close members of the family are more or less ok, that the Christmas tree is still standing despite the cat attacks, and for much more…

In the middle of everything, I got myself a job with nice co-workers, which is one of the most important things for me… and it is also because good friends advised me and guided me along the way… so yes, 2020 also had its share of extremely important moments to grow …

Looking at the year to come, I still have some debt, I still need to help out with a parent with ill health, and I still feel I haven’t a “home” for myself, since I have been wondering between two countries at least in the last three years… some of my clothes are in London, others in Paris, and some in my suitcase because there was not enough place in my parents’ closet.

On the other hand, isn’t this a sense of freedom? I can take my suitcase and go…

How about love?

Wonderful friends, parents, and quasi-pets (I am their “godmother’ since they aren’t exactly mine).

So far, so good.

And next year?

Next year will be tomorrow.

A BIG THANK YOU to 2020 for the challenges but also the tools to face them and make it through, and lots of LOVE to all who struggle to all who don’t know the way, to all of us!

We can make it, just hang in there another moment, another hour, things also change for the better!!!

May 9 and 10, 2020- Doubts and light at the end of the tunnel

Hello May,

yes, on Saturday I had a bad mood: no sign of my colleague who proposed a collaboration. Maybe she didn’t like my work, maybe I tried for nothing…

I kind of felt disempowered. …

And on top of that … family issues…

But Sunday, was another day!

I started with Beatles: Here comes the sun!

And apparently, it’s. good choice!

My colleague responded: there is an interest from an editor, but we need to work out something by the end of May… OMG!

April 1st, 2020- 6 Year Blog-Anniversary! Happy Birthday April4June6!

Welcome April,

again, in this strange period where we humans realise how much we have in common and how vulnerable we are without cooperation!

Six years after I started blogging, at the beginning only for three months: April to June, with the promise to write every day. And I did!

I was facing a wannabe boss who fired me in Paris, France, heartbreak, financial instability, health issues of members of my family and some passing issues with me, eh… kind a few actually!

In the meanwhile I changed country and language, went to London, changed again, went through precarious jobs and relationships, … published a book, got a new job, published some poetry…

And here I am in my starting point, at my parents’ home waiting for the virus storm to pass, hoping and praying it will get better for all of us…

And thinking of ways to act responsibly in the world emerging…

Still, a lot of reasons to celebrate, and most of all, celebrate the trajectory, wins and losses, getting back up and continuing…

And THANKING friends, people who have stood by, blogfriends, everyday life friends, unknown kind passers by who smiled, flowers, animals, kids, the wind in my cheek…

HappY BirthdaY April4June6 WordPress blog, it’s time we expand… I will tell you how 🙂

June 22, 2016: Cheering up for a European in London… with the story of the Chinese Farmer

Hello June,

well, for a French in London it was a kind of blow to see the UK taking a different path… so I admit my mood has been affected a bit with the anticipation and final vote on Brexit…

How is it possible to cheer oneself up?

Probably with doing the best we can in any situation and let things take their course whatever that is…

September 10, 2015-Thursday Waiting for Love ;-)

Hello September,

As I am searching for flats in London, I came up this song of AVICII and completely loved it! So I would like to dedicate it to all who find something inspiring in it, and as the lyrics say, “Thursday, Waiting for Love”! Let’s wait for love not only on Thursday! Let’s love something, someone, ourselves, now, the past, the future, a nice dessert, a smile, a blog post!

March 30- The day after

Hello dear March,

how are you doing? For me it is the day after … a battle, where I didn’t win the prize. My bones hurt and I allow myself to feel tired. Is there a lesson to learn? Was my proposal good enough? Did I advertize it as much as I should have? Did I find a champion to defend it? Many questions, that I can answer later.

Right now the most important thing is to relax, feel good, and then, I will have the time to learn whatever lesson there is to learn.

I deserve a special treat. Going to my favorite café. Eating a piece of chocolate. Listening to my favorite music. Talking to a close friend. Kissing someone I am in love with and being kissed. Or something close to that. Read or write a poem. Or both.

After all, I did better than last time. And I should acknowledge this fact and appreciate my effort. Putting myself at stake, out there, demanded some courage.

I can also think of the larger picture. Getting this funding or job, is a step, an intermediate goal, towards the Big One: not only advancing with my personal work and diffusing it but creating an inspiring Platform where people will be stimulated to give their best, and they will find the means to realize their dreams. A place where we will put together something worth transmitting to future generations 🙂

June 27- Miracle!

Dear June,

I have started this blog in April, with the idea that I wanted to transform myself and my life. My objectives? A job where I do what I like and I manage to live from it. And of course, true love. Now, what is true love? It could be a place where two people feel at home.

I went for lunch in the whereabouts of the Platform, I had agreed to meet H. He has been asking me to collaborate for an artistic project. I think he is intelligent and I appreciate his ideas, but we are not sharing the same perspective. However, I promised to consider it for next year.

H and I have made different choices in life: He has a stable income, doing something he doesn’t like that much, but he doesn’t have enough time to express his creativity. On the contrary, I had chosen to tolerate instability, but to work on things I am passionate about. This has been stressful at times, and I have been under pressure, but I am not bitter. And I saw that in him. He seemed to say that there is no way to place oneself in a better position as event organizers.

I told him some people do, so there must be a way. And we shouldn’t give up.

But talking to him depressed me a bit, since it felt as if I my hopes were not realistic. I went for a walk by myself after lunch for a debriefing, which is not the best thing to do, when not in a good mood.

June is almost over, I thoughg, I have taken a challenge, and where am I? Three days before the end of the month, and still in the same situation I was before.

In terms of love, B is a fantasy, I have to admit it. I have fallen in love with an illusion. And there have been some artists in transit whose idea was an adventure. Something I am not interested in.

When it comes to work, I have projects, but I have only applied for two fundings. What are my chances?

In this mood, I returned to my office and checked my emails.

And here it was, a MIRACLE!

My project has successfully passed the first round for the funding I asked!

I was thrilled!

My blues disappeared!

I have until August 5 to present a more detailed version and submit it for the second round. It is not going to be easy, but I am honoured to still be in the game!

Thank you June!
