Fast food ;-)

I love days off during the week: to take my time in the morning, prepare my lunch with love instead of heating some left overs at the office  canteen. However, I have many things to do today so I went for a quick lunch recipe: Goat cheese tartine made on a delicious country bread from the bio market, soft goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, a bit of Parmesan and black pepper on top. On the side a little salad with tomatoes, cucumber, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and some avocado oil. Quick, easy and oh so good!

Misty Paris

To take Paris by surprise on a misty winter morning when the tourists are still munching their croissants at the hotel buffets and the salesmen just opening their stalls by the river is a rare bliss. To sit upstairs Shakespeare and Company surrounded by stories and a humming cat sleeping by my side or walking by the river with a cup of coffee warming my hands as the streets above start to fill with voices that soon grow into the usual hustle. To find a piece of gold and let it go. To listen to the sounds of an accordion echoing from the alleyways. Just to be, there, a part of it.

7 hours of light

This is my country. It’s grey, it’s cold, it’s waiting. Waiting for the snow to bury the stripped landscape in a pure white blanket. The fields like a lover’s stubble, trees like needles pointed at the heavy sky. Everything is quiet. And then: Footsteps, cracking branches and a few carefully selected words.
