The Professional Worrier

Feng calls me a “professional worrier”. I do worry a lot. I worry about the past, the present and the future. I mostly worry about the future though. And time. Time is my biggest issue. I don’t have...

The Runaway

Many years ago, as I was heading to Australia, a friend of a friend tried to psychoanalyze me. “But, don’t you think you are running away?” she said, wisely, at the ripe old age of 20. “Traveling so...

My November

November is such a depressing month—I don’t even know why it exists. Days are cold and damp and it is pitch black by the time I go back home at 5 pm. This month is an interregnum between pumpkins and...

London Shopping

In France, I bought a bunch of beauty products. In London, I found a t-shirt mecca at Camden Market. Originally a craft market, the Camden Lock Market is now a thriving shopping area and hundreds of...

The Nostalgic Chameleon

It’s not that I didn’t try to keep in touch with French culture. At first, my mind stretched itself to join the two sides of the Atlantic Ocean – it was exhausting. I listened to French talk shows...

27

I'm 27 years old today. Not a single white hair... yet.
My plans? None, really. Keep on taking pictures, enjoying the world, traveling, creating... you know, the usual.

The Office

I have my own office. An office with a door, a desk, a computer, a phone, a whiteboard and drawers. I also have a very cool magnetic pass to get around, one with my picture on it. I have a favorite...

15 Minutes Of Fame

I'm more a behind the scenes kind of person: I love writing, drawing and taking pictures. But strangely enough, I didn't hesitate to do the documentary.

In The Mood For Change

When I showed up at work to pick up my last pay check, after coming back from South America, most of my co-workers stared at me, slightly bewildered: "You look... different".

Seven Things About Myself

One tag is easy enough to postpone: thank the blogger and "forget" (**hey, I'm kidding, don't un-suscribe!**). But how do you do when you're cornered by both France and Canada?

Scar Tissue

No matter how hard I tried, I was never able to see out of my left eye. Nothing but a useless blurry picture, with a few black spots on the way. The world looks distorted in a pretty fun way but it...

The Division Bell

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

Five Strenghs, Four People

Five Strenghs, Four People

"So, here's the challenge: make a list of five strengths that you possess as a writer/artist. It's not really bragging, it's an honest assessment (forced upon you by this darn meme). Please resist...

The Communist Girl

I don't have too many icons on my desktop because I use a dock under Windows XP. Still, you can see a few of my folders : "to read" (bunch of pages I copy from the web) and "to print" (usually my...

Do You Speak English?

English wasn't popular. French don't like English much ("they put vinegar on chips and eat meat with mint sauce !"), and the relationship with the USA has always been a bit rocky ("these warmongers/...

Eight Random Facts About Me

Eight Random Facts About Me

I was tagged by Sebastien, the author of Chronically Sick But Still Thinking I Think (best drawings in the blogosphere, but he hates rabbits for some reasons...), on this meme.

Do You Want To Argue ? Pleeeeease…
