Tulips in the morning

tulips as the sun shines partially on the table of the living room, the ray obscures the mess around it, remaining in the shade and the tulips are illuminated giving them more texture. One can here go from one to other, and eventually chose which you prefer.

Neglected blog

I begun blogging 9 years ago, february 2005, and blogged day by day - in the French "il y a de la vie après 70 ans"

Yes, there is life after 70 as I tried to prove to myself first, the others too. I did.

Then I opened a Retroblog to publish my diaries from 10 to 60 years old. And a photoblog with one picture a day.

When I decided to come and live in London, I opened this blog, also to become used to write in English. I never dreamed at that time, I will stay on London stages to tell about my life!

More I told, less I wrote here.

Opening a blog about communication and my stories, that become my main English blog. Then arrived Facebook, where many follow me not only day by day, but sometimes, minute by minute.

Should I close this one?

Too much time on web, the spring arrived and I should also come out to walk "smell the roses" take photos of flowers and people and 'see them" and even swim !

The perfect moment

We never forget that perfect moment! Those rest embedded in us. Even when there are not followed by what we did think at that time. In me, even an hour when I waited for someone who never arrived remains as a very happy hour. And a day of expecting a perfect week, remains also a joyful memory. Of course also those happy hours or days, when all was absolutely wander full. And lately, the happy moments with my last love: the audience.

Yesterday, I had seen a movie on Netscape. At the end, the voice of the heroine, after a happy moment, summarise the premise of the film:

"there is no such thing as perfect job, perfect family or perfect life, but there are perfect moments in life."

So true. Let us make, take, enjoy, our life's perfect moments. Dare to enjoy and live them. As the movie suggest, make, at least once in life crazy things. I would say dare to go 'out of our comfort zone' more then once. At least, relationships. Creative endeavours. New things at old age.
