August 14, 2018- Update on Love, Work and Vacation

Dear August,

where have I been all this time? Was it on a little white cloud, on the wings of love, forgetting all my everyday life practical questions?

Almost, I was up, down, and around.

My June love story lost steam and practically disappeared in July.

I managed to get myself a virus and I spent a lot of time sleeping and watching Disney and Dreamworks creations (from the Trolls to Baby Boss…)

Anyway, I realized a vacation is a must, and I landed on my home-town where I spent time with family and friends and I decided that all I needed is sleep, rest and relax.

It is only in August that I emerged and I started writing, again, the sequel of my first novel;

Well, to go back to love questions, do I feel sad?

Not exactly.

Was I in love?

I was grateful to have this good looking, intelligent, successful, active, thoughtful guy, full of attentions. I saw fireworks!

But somehow, I stressed up.

Was it for real?

It was almost too good to be true.

This guy, a 40 year-old, was showering me with attentions for a whole month, and I think that I was responding positively but somewhat with less enthusiasm than his.

He seemed serious about his career coming out of a two year relationship and we had common friends. Not the kind of person who was frivolous and flirtatious here and there.

Was it my instinct of self-preservation or my self-sabotage side that wanted for things to go more slowly?

in any case, my perfect june man left for a two-week business trip and when he came back to London, he found me and my virus, and then he just… vanished!

Now that I am back in full health, I contemplate if a little virus can chase away a strong connexion or dissipate a buble that wasn’t love.

Because I am not interested in the fast food of love: the kind of place where you are served fast, and bad quality food.

I am for the three star Michelin restaurant, where food is prepared with the best ingredients and it takes its time to arrive in your plate.

This fast in love fast out of love person, was looking for appearances.

Good luck to each of us and as they say in fairy tales, “and they lived happily ever after”, in our separate ways, in this case!

P.S. A small “clin d’oeil for my friend Paul @ SocialMedia who asked me how things go!

June 20, 2018- Love and how to stay cool

Hello June,

it seems that I have a boyfriend, he is wonderful, loving, and he came out of nowhere, almost. Is he for real? It is so recent, I still pinch myself. It is too early to say.

But that doesn’t stop me for walking with a BIG smile in my face, and even if someone is pushing me at the busy London streets, I am in a very good mood and thank them.

What is he finds out I have been a struggling artist?

Or it shows in any case?

Let’s concentrate on work and stay cool.

So?

Any progress there?

Well, kind of.

I am waiting a response from a galley owner who seemed

interested.

And then?

I am putting together a hell of an art portfolio.

And I have a month to do it.

Expecting a miraculous intervention.

Because everything is possible.

So, making things happen or letting them happen and sitting back in a relaxed way?

Something in between 🙂

February 7, 2018- In touch with our intuition- let’s have a cup of tea!

Hello dear February,

after an all work and no play period, I feel kind of cold and with a lot of unsatisfied others around me. And yet, is there a way to take me for a treat?

There must be something. I should probably trust, and let things come to me.

Yogi tea said so, when I opened one fo the little envelopes:

So, let’s take a cup of Yogi tea and forgive myself and others, for not being perfect:

Let’s get crazy instead.

It’s still winter, but St Valentine is near by.

Let’s have faith in love,

Love conquers all!

June 25 and 26, 2016: Love for Europe brings love

Hello June,

yes, this idea of the UK out of Europe kind of shook me as other Europeans, Londoners and pro-remain people.

But there was an interesting side-effect: this common concern brings people together. You see a gorgeous guy sitting next to you at the café, pub, … grieving for the loss … you join in with your grief to seek some kind of comfort… feeling the need to share emotions.

Is it a problem that he is a gorgeous blond with blue eyes? I didn’t even pay attention as the topic was so important… well he is working for a news program and he wanted to see how the other Europeans took it… so here I am today having coffee with him…

Will this collective emotion translate into something more personal?

It is hard to know right away; let’s see if we will meet again for drinks and more analysis!

June 8 and 9, 2016: looking forward to the Blogger’s Bash in London

Hello June,

so there is this blogger meeting, the Blogger’s Bash I intend to attend for the first time, and meet people who share the same passion: writing and publishing something on line on a regular basis!

In the meanwhile, I have been dealing with practical questions: how to keep my environment organized, satisfy my flatmate who thinks I don’t clean the surfaces in the Kitchen every time I finish cooking -she might have a point- with creative writing, organizing my next artistic event and also looking for funding opportunities for another round in the UK.

Hmmm… and last but not least, I need to walk more than 15.000 steps a day so that our team wins the trophee at the working platform I am attached to.

So, where is the time for romance? Passion? Exhuberation? Soul searching?

To be honest, I start from soul-searching and being open to inspiration.

This is why I can forget spraying Dettol on the kitchen or to put my clothes in order.

This is also the reason why I start my working day after lunch.

And why I finish so late!

Do I want to change that?

I like writing late, the feeling that I am the only person around.

There is something rebellious about it, I am not sure I can find early in the morning.

What do you think?

April 23, 2016: Post day 10- Balance work and life :-)

Hello there April,

today I thought I should work, this is a great change. If Saturday is here for us to rest, I thought I could work on a Saturday, and rest on a Monday. How about that?

There is a plan of a new book I look forward to finish, because I am getting to the South of France next week. I would feel better to reach this mille stone before I go.

So instead of going to Camden market for breakfast, as some friends have suggested, I just did my laundry in the morning and went to our working space -to put together my ideas.

Not having heard a declaration of love last night -despite full moon and all- might have induced me to call up some friends and I did.

But again, how did I end up there? Moving to a new city requires so many things to do, and I have focused on my work: writing, on the one hand, and getting involved to some artistic event organization, to take place mostly in France.

And yes, apart from occasional contact with artists on the move, I didn’t make a lot of friends. So I ended up hanging around with this Hungarian who was always proposing to go to exhibitions, dinners and to walk around London. To whom I was not attracted. But I though he was because he was seeking my company so much. We spent all our weekends together for the last 2 months. But apparently, this sort of ‘security’ in the big city, is ok, but not enough for any of us.

So I decided to get in touch with some Facebook friends who must be in town also. I will see a French friend tomorrow morning. We have been out of touch for a few years because she was in South America, and now she found herself in London with her new family.

I really look forward to meeting her!

April 15, 2016: post day 2-on relationships

April what do you think:

do we know our feelings ourselves? Can we be the best judge of what is happening to us or is it someone who knows us well who can do it better?

I ask because I had a conversation with a friend of mine. I have been spending some time lately with a Spanish guy. Visiting exhibitions, going to the cinema together. He is an artist I had collaborated with before on one or two occasions when I was living in Paris. The thing is, are we going out together because we don’t have enough friends yet? Or is it that we like each other? Is there a romantic interest involved?

You might tell me hang on a second, are you 12 year’s old? Shouldn’t you have resolved this question before?

This is true but I am not very sure. When we meet we discuss relationships. Our past and our goals in life. It is a little bit like a friendship of the time I was an adolescent.

Is there any form of attraction between us? Or is it a process towards another step in our lives?

February 18, 2016: day 21 out of 60 day challenge- should I trust my feelings?

Hello February,

should I trust my emotions regarding a person, or my head? Or just give more time? I refer to people of course, potential love interests, friends, colleagues…

Sometimes people might seem nice and we start hanging around. Then there is an uneasy feeling about something. I say, may be I was picky that day. Then I find this feeling again. If this person doesn’t make me feel good should I withdraw? Where did the likeability go?

Is there something in the recipe which is not so good or should we try again?

You see, in London, I don’t know so many people, so I jump at the opportunity to make new friends and acquaintances. But spending time with just anybody, might not be the best thing for either.

We should make each other feel good most of the time no?

What would you say?
