December 2nd, 2017-New Month, New Home :-)

Hello November,

I am holding the keys to my new place! It has been such an adventure to find a place to live in London, with a part-time job. I found a flatshare and I am very grateful!

I am moving in today and I need to deliver the keys of my temporary “chez-moi” by 15.00.

It’s going to be a long day since my flatmate is also moving in on the same day and we need to coordinate.

New Month, New Home, New Life?

October 31, 2017- Halloween origins and reasons to celebrate

Hello October,

Halloween is around the corner, and although it was not in my tradition to celebrate it, I looked around for information. Apparently, the origins go back to the ancien Celts, so it is well rooted in the UK where I happen to live right now.

Something I could relate with? Apparently, for the Celts, November 1st was New Year’s Eve, and something is dying for something else to be born, as winter is coming.

So I take it as a new beginning, and a day with mystery and magic, which I rather enjoy.

Especially with a nice desert and with a glass of wine.

At least I am waiting to see what my friends have in mind, who will celebrate it tonight and invited me over!

September 27, 2017- A new beginning

Hello September,

I said goodbye to the gallery I was working part-time yesterday. It was something expected, but I was hoping to stay for another month, the time to figure things out for me.

But the essential thing is to be somewhere I can shine not just linger.

London, should I stay or should I go?

I have plans and goals.

I have jumped in the unknown when I came here from Paris.

The essential thing is the purpose.

And the purpose is to create in the best conditions, in the way that will benefit others also.

So, I need to be open.

To begin with, I will contact everybody I know for information.

And those I don’t know also.

March 2, 2016: day 31 out of 60 day challenge- to New Beginnings

 

Welcome March!

thank you for giving me such a busy first and second day that I only get a chance to blog at almost 1.00 in the morning London time.

What have I been doing? To begin with, I spent the last two nights -or days working on my manuscript. And, I have to admit I am a night-bird.

So I had a dilemma concerning the challenge I put to myself.

Between us, what do you think: should I start all over my 60 day challenge because I didn’t report to you the last few days, or continue from where I left it?

I will continue because I feel that things advanced a lot in the last few days.

So, I will go on.

A New Beginning is like the first day of the Month.

We can put a benchmark and start again.

It we are less than perfect, it is ok if we keep walking 😉

April 6, 2015- Dreaming of a skunk :-)

Dear April,

have you ever dreamt of a skunk? That is what happened to me last night. It was quiet a big one, the size of a medium size dog, beautiful, and I was holding him playfully in my arms. We were best friends, so to speak. I wasn’t afraid of him and he seemed pretty comfortable with me.

Now, I think that the last time I have heard of these animal is back to school, or in children’s cartoons, years ago. Not recently anyway.

So I googled the animal, and a lot of nice ideas came up. To begin with, it seems that there is a symbolism of skunks. I will adopt the information which I like better. So a skunk seems to be related to:

  • Defense
  • Prudence
  • Protection
  • Confidence
  • Awareness
  • Pacification
  • Effectiveness
  • Good judgement
  • Skunks seem to be naturally buoyant. They go through life with a calm assurance, and exude a peaceful energy that is extremely attractive to others.

Do we have “totems animals”? I wouldn’t know what to say.

Neither do I know how I ended up being good friends with the beautiful skunk in my dream. But it was fun and I definitely need to integrate these qualities to my day-to-day interactions.

The Easter holiday is over and tomorrow I will be in the middle of negotiations, new projects and professional beginnings 🙂
