“There is a time for departure even when there's no certain place to go.”Tennessee Williams

Moved out of my childhood house last week, walls, rooms, souvenirs rippling across my face as I walked the corridors and gently murmured to myself. Furniture has not been packed yet and I imprinted a mental image of it all, desperately trying to hold on for as long as I could, catch every colours, every details forever. I was born in that house. I got stung by my first bee in that house.I know every bolts, every cracks of this house. I know on which steps to stand to avoid making noises while climbing up the stairs at night. I know...

Olga Bastien

When death set her footsteps in your own, there is generally a sense of loss, grief and pain that overwhelms you. You cry, you shout at whoever stands above, in dismay, this time I haven't.  The last elderly in my family passed away, Olga was a beautiful simple country soul who loved to give and serve her family. I remember with fondness those summer months when I lived with her, getting up at sunrise, watering the garden, apricot trees, basilicum, fuchsia, roses, rapsberry bushes, the recipes she taught me made with southern sun...

Ensnared enlightenment

Throughout days that linger in a sensual and dangerously city like death, I surrender to my old life; encrouch in a run that takes me to consumerism and globalisation, I nibble forbidden treasures found in the dusty cellar, read french authors aloud as if I was at the theater, wither from thirst in my aimless wander and observe my physical body struggle. My mind is left with incredible thoughts; an insight that flowers but for its electron size. “To awaken each morning with a smile brightening my face;to greet the day with... [Lire la suite]

Resume 1- photos later

Back from an intermede in southern France, Cote D'azur and Charente maritime. Take a glass and mix in accordingly, your other half, entire family (which for myself is composed of 6 persons directly related),  sunstrokes on my skin, slow death in  28 degres water as my head lingers under it's surface, 8-9 different flavors of  icecreams, cicadas singing when night comes, gorgeous food, smells lingering after the rain, wet earth, eucalyptus tree. Talks with my kins, dancing with my cousin new bride, reconnecting with this... [Lire la suite]

Still Alive

Hi Guys, No I haven't disappeared but was rather busy sorting out various part of our life and this webpage has thus been left out. To sum up short We have been to Egypt for a week with my parents, size the sun, sand and historical wonders in the palm of our hands, and for myself on film, grabbed a quick suntan and came back to France. I have been in paris for the past 2 weeks, working on various concepts I had concerning a potential documentary film and roaming the city's libraries,the national library, becoming a bookworm,...

On the road again

I have been reunited with my buddy, other half, partner, chose whatever you prefer/ kick your fancy and we're hitting the road in a few hours. Last night was a reunion in Paris near Champs-Elysees where a friend has a flat, a friend that currently lives in Uk and we hadn't seen in a year. Him and his girlfriend just got engaged and it was a rather emotional evening...It was a typical french night, for the foreign people reading it means having an aperitif, alcohol like pastis (anis liquor), or porto or champagne (when you can afford...

Catchin'up

I am desperately trying to catch up with everyone round here and it is nearly impossible. Seen 3 girlfriends so far and might be able to catch up with most of them in the next 3 days. I slept 15 hours yesterday as jetlag started catching up with me in a drastic manner... I am therefore a normal walking human being and not a zombie anymore, feels great. I don't seem to be able to get used to Europe. Culture is chokingly everywhere, 1000 years old building; historical artifacts and humanity is ever so present anywhere my path leads... [Lire la suite]

Home

How many coffees; how many bad meals at airport bars, how many people watched and observed, how many hours of sleep spent on the edge of a hard seat, how many thoughts scribbled in my little orange notebook; how many pages read, how many memories remembered and past events ressassed, how many butterflies fluttering in my tummy, how many naps and dreams recollected, how many bookstores, how many plans premade in my agenda, how many good times... How many have places have we travelled looking for one safe place, how many people met... [Lire la suite]
