Nature

Chris with his mom, last summer, austria. I am experiencing a new level of love and communication with life, with nature. I love every day of it. I hope we can soon find a nice house, a new nest, comfortable and bright, joyful and calm, surrounded by trees, mountain views, and my little growing farm (2 cats and more coming…!) Again, there would be so much i could share here, but since i dont plan to live over an hundred years...

2010 – 2011

I’m still here, this is still happening. I dont know if i have just been silent on this blog, or just totally absent. There would be so much to write about, so many observations, ideas, new views on life – that just the thought of having to write it all makes me feel exhausted! Right now, i just had to post this picture of me and my mom, taken last september on their first visit in europe, i think it speaks a lot about our...

Dear Paris

Paris, so beautiful under the rainbow yesterday evening! Time for us to decide if we stay or leave. I dont really want to leave, now that i feel at home in the city of light, but at the same time, i crave for a comfortable and spacious home, and long walks at the sea and in the mountains. Staying in Paris would delay again my project of living on the country side, project which i feel both excited and afraid about. Another time of...

Learning the walk

“Our culture invariably supposes that action and accomplishment is better than rest, that doing something–anything–is better than doing nothing. Because of our desire to succeed, to meet these ever-growing expectations, we do not rest. Because we do not rest, we lose our way. We miss the compass points that would show us where to go, we bypass the nourishment that would give us succor. We miss the quiet that would...

That is how i feel about our time in Paris. March was cold and gray, we just arrived, exhausted after weeks of preparation, and i felt deeply tired, cold and homesick. April and May were time for us to go trough the loss of our little lilo. June started, we left for a much needed time off in nature, which was beautiful, and yet another drama, i felt on the rocks and my knee will need 2 to 3 weeks to recover. From my window it feels...

Play and fun

Some days are easier, more light filled than others. Some days, i just crash and let tears poor over me. It is hard to let C. see me like this, vulnerable and in distress. In the past, if i did not feel good, i just retreated in my flat (we had 2 apartments), so i could take the hours or days needed to get back on my feet, by myself. Here, in this furnished 55 sq. meters, there is not so much place to hide my tears and discouragement...

Un court message pour vous remercier de tout les commentaires sur mon dernier billet, vos courriels et messages laissés ici m’aident énormément. Je fais des démarches pour aider mon corps à retrouver son équilibre, son harmonie. Des anti-douleur prescrit par ma doc, des scéances de kiné 2 fois la semaine, tests sanguins pour être certaine que je ne déraille pas à cause d’une carence ou d’un dérèglement de ma...

3 months

3 months that we are here, and, as i had fantasized for the last 2 years, i celebrated my 35th birthday in Paris, and it was, hm, the least happiest birthday of all, can you believe that? Me and C are learning so much here. So much about what we want our life to be like, and so much about the crazy fantasies our ego can drive us into, letting me believe that here, my life would be more fun, easier, grandiose and even, spectacular. The...

3 semaines

Je suis silencieuse, car ici c’est le deuil. Mon amour de chat, Monsieur li, lilo, nous a quitté il y a 3 semaines. Si vous êtes amoureux des animaux, vous comprendrez peut-être ma peine. Le vide laissé par la perte de ce compagnon fidèle et aimant est immense. Après 3 semaines, mes larmes coulent encore chaque jour. Un 15 minutes de tristesse quotidienne quand je pense à lui, à combien j’ai adoré chaque matin avec lui, à...

Paris week 7

Spring finally made it to Paris! Right now, my daily stroll brings me to the jardin du Luxembourg, 10 minutes from our flat, but nowhere to go on warm sunny day like yesterday if you are a little agoraphobic — people almost fight for a chair at the sun. Everywhere i go, people seem to be up to relax and play: so many benches to sit and read, grass gardens and fountains, public ping pong tables, and so on. With the sun comes the...

Week 5

As we are on our way to week 6 in Paris, i am still in between stirring moods. One of our cat started to feel sick a week ago, making me feel rather miserable after not sleeping well for the last 7 days, always on the emergency mode to detect anything abnormal from our two sweet little fur balls. This opened the door wide for a new crisis (!), new events to make me digg deep again in my soul to find out that a part of me still believe...

Something special

I came to the realization that each day, it is up to us to hang onto drama or joy — it is all up to you and me to choose, if the events are with or against us, if the glass is half empty or half full, everyday. Also, i think gray days really have this something special. Pictures in order: Eiffel tower under coming rain menace, Being at home hidding, The sky, when it is...

Hope you are having a nice holiday! Now, let me take you for a walk in my hood! Paris is gray and cold right now, nothing too inviting… Spotting neon advertising is nice for such gray weather. While waiting for the sun, resting at home, taiking walks and eating good food is all i...

Arriver à Paris. S’y déposer pour quelques mois, juste pour voir si un tel mouvement peut créer l’excitation dans ma vie. Réaliser un tel rêve devrait, après tout, être source de joie, et combler de bonheur l’aventurière qui a décidé en tout premier lieu d’essayer, tâter le terrain, par pure curiosité, juste pour voir. Après 34 années passées parmi vous, je me retrouve des qualités — et ça sera à vous de...

Hello Paris!

There is so much to write, it’s a little overwhelming. Just a few sentences would not do justice to all of what’s happening in one’s mind when moving abroad (and when abroad means Paris). My eyes can talk as well, so for now, just a few clichés should...

Paris

The move is on its way, we are leaving for Paris in a few weeks. After the tornado of events of the last month (xmas, new year parties, having visitors from nyc and Chris’s parents, then getting married), my mind started wondering about the changes to come, and why i wanted these changes in the first place. As many of you already know, questioning everything is something i do on a regular basis, like a hobby. I dont know exactly...
