August 23, 2018- Emerging from Summer-nation :-)

Hello August,

already the 23rd, and I am sitting in a café, my almost favorite occupation, starting slowly to emerge from my summer-nation, a similar to hibernation state.

I found time to sleep, eat, watch favorite movies and see my friends and family; look around and observe the flight of the insects, wonder about the mood of my cat.

In other words, extremely productive occupations.

No, I haven’t been by the seaside still. My parent’s home is close to the mountains, in South of France, although not far from the sea, you need to go by car.

And the furthest I have been is a few kilometers away.

In a kind of lazy mood, you see.

After sending dozens of job applications in places that seemed appealing and others that didn’t, and after putting together extravagant projects, I am to look for funding for, I decided to look further into places I really want to go, and see how I can get there.

What do I mean by extravagant projects?

The kind of projects that don’t seem close to anything I see and demand a huge funding to become a reality.

Should I give up in dreaming?

Or look for other crazy dreamers around?

I somehow favor the second option.

Dream and never image

September 28, 2016: Interviewing future tenants in Paris

Hey, September

have you any idea how interesting it is to interview future home-sitters in Paris? There is a couch in my flat and I even felt as an analyst. Different people sat there and told me about their needs, love-life, reasons to separate or not from their former partner.

What they wanted, or not in a flat.

It is fascinating because there are still some personal objects in my flat: a book, a detail forgotten here and there. Someone told me he wouldn’t have people see his bedroom. Or he didn’t like the disposition of the kitchen. Or he wanted to cook and the oven is not big enough. They tried to picture themselves in a space that is new to them.

Some of them are confused about what they are looking for. Big flat in a remote area or small and central? Big family kitchen or small and close to action?

But in any case, it was so great to listen to life stories, aspirations, … well have I concluded?

Almost, but not quiet.

And it is time to get back to London. I will need your help on this one.
