Day 21: wear your favorite outfit today

Those are my favorite shoes ever, Ferragamo Suede Stilettos: Red, feminine, Italian of course. Yet they have spent so many years in the darkness of my closets – blame it on our years in Asia: Vietnamese and Filipino sidewalks are definitely not made for heels so I wore Nike instead, swapping style for comfort. I couldn’t even wear them for diners at friends: in Asia … Continue reading Day 21: wear your favorite outfit today

Day 7: No complaining Day

There is almost a contradiction between ” French” and “no complaining”. We French do complain. All the time. About anything and everything. It’s in our DNA, as striking is a Nation Sport for us. It’s not a bad thing: Our brain (and yours!) constantly thinks negative thoughts about the future and has a negative bias. The bias and discernment developed in the primal era because it … Continue reading Day 7: No complaining Day

A Graffiti Tagging Match

I adore Paris for its everlasting power to trigger my imagination. There is a story waiting to be told in every corner, behind each door, and even on its walls .. Wandering in its narrow streets with the kids is like cruising in an open museum, except that one can touch and join the masterpieces. “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life” said Oscar Wilde. Not sure … Continue reading A Graffiti Tagging Match
