When I visit my hometown, I am usually torn between my past, present and future self.
The past self, is what people used to know me for. It is a powerful self, because they have not followed through the changes I went through. There are things I might have not liked of this self, at the time. It could be that I have been shy.
And then, if I stay too long in one place, I feel that I betray my future self. Especially when I grow out of the image others see me for there. So I need to go to this new place where I can reinvent myself.
The old self could be great, but I might have disagreed with the public persona, others shared for me. For example, if I have been this shy kid, I might want to go places where I will be known for my adventurous spirit and exploits.
And if this is the case, I might again need to move on and also be known as someone who is bonding and member of a community.
Is there a best place? Is there Homme?
Homme can be everywhere, if it allows us to have been, to be and to continue becoming, exploring, loving, developing, independently of age.
I realise you are a very demanding month, the last two years I find myself organising summer art exhibitions and there is always a last-minute cancellation to fill in everybody’s nerves tense, and still… will pull it through…
So should I let myself stress? I try different solutions… after all, these summer exhibitions haven’t changed my life in a spectacular way… they contribute to the path I have taken, but there is not this one moment which determines everything… I guess there is always a possibility to change, to correct, …
This is what I tell myself, it is a marathon we are running for success, so the most important thing is to stay fit and continue running … not to sprint for 100 meters and then fall down breathless…
summer solstice today, hey, this is great, I had some sun on my head when I went for tea today in London, but it was raining all morning. Just to cheer us up, I found this beautiful sun designed by Megan, an artist from Chicago.
By the way, I also decided the best way to deal with Mega goals is to act in a spontaneous way. I will let you know how that works. You see June, I am not good at pushing myself. I think self deserves a chocolate from time to time, a hug, a nice cup of tea and other similar things. So even if there is a list of things to be done, I will give them their time and I will take mine!
