Fields of gold

Reprise

Rolling over the hill
Spinning around
Again and again
Bountiful harvest
Sore hands
Happy faces
Blissful landcsape
Children running
And laughing out loud
Chasing the dogs
And counting the cows.

Be the light

Reprise

Fly light
Eat light
Live light
Travel light
Find the light
Trust the light
Keep the light
Follow the light
Search the light
Dream of the light
Walk through the light
No matter what happens
Be your own light. Always.

Purple or violet?

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.

Tennessee Williams

Don’t order any black things. (…) Wear violet and purple.

George Bernard Shaw

I don’t have a purple problem, I have a purple passion!

Jackie Harmon Sweeney

Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

Promises

Reprise

Promise me our love will never die
We belong together
Today, tomorrow, forever

Promise me the world will be a better place
Look further, reach higher, take care of mother Earth
Never give up, just keep the faith

Promise me you will do your best
To learn something new every single day
Be a better person, take a rest

I promise you…I’ll try.

Summer XII

One must maintain a little bit of summer, even in the middle of winter.

Henry David Thoreau

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.

Along the way

Turn left
Do it right
Don’t talk to strangers
Run
Jump
Time is money
Study
Find a job
Be the best
Get married
Have children
Work harder
Follow the others
Do like everbody else
Fit in
Breath out
Stay in shape
Get old
Dead end.

And one day, you realise that you’ve missed important things along the way because you forgot to build your own path.

Interlude

Forever is composed of nows.

Emily Dickinson

Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils

Hector Berlioz

Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting

Haruki Murakami

En plein coeur de toute difficulté se cache une possibilité.

Albert Einstein

Veuiller n’est au fond pas autre chose que n’avoir plus peur de son passé.

Stefan Zweig

Notre vrai malheur, pourtant, n’est pas ce que les ans nous volent mais ce qu’ils laissent en partant.

William Wordsworth

I’m back…for good!

It’s so damn good to be back! After more than three weeks of intensive emotions. Believe me when I say that my life is a roller coaster. Oh yeah!
A phone stolen, a whole morning at the police station, memories vanished, pictures lost forever, my accounts hacked, major health issues and finally… holidays!
I am sorry for not being present but I needed a break. Trust me!
I hope you liked the street art posts (I cannot live without art), as well as, the ones to celebrate my favourite season : Summer.
Thank you for being here!
I’ll catch up… smoothly but steadily.
I missed you all.

Black is back?

Reprise

The star shines in the dark sky
Flawless
The tea sleeps in the cup
Stemless
The elephant wanders in the savannah
Dryness
The tree waves
Smoothly
The train whistles
Twice.
