On Finding Yourself

“Don't get lost. Give it a try. Go find the place that you're wishing for.” 
— Natsuki Takaya 

One thing I have discovered with the journey toward simplicity, is that removing clutter uncovers the essential. It was sometimes long buried and forgotten below layers of convention, musts and social pressure.

Blog | A refresh

As you may have noticed, I have slightly updated the blog’s look and feel. Articles have been more sparse lately, and there are many reasons for that, among which too much work and more energy dedicated to fiction writing (in French). However, I do enjoy writing in English and discussing with you, and I still have a lot to learn toward a simple life, so I have decided to refresh this little space and dedicate more time to posting regular updates.

Food For Thought | #17

It has been a while since I shared some food for thought with you. Time passes and life is transformed through imperceptible daily changes. With this evolution comes a new approach to writing and sharing thoughts. While I think of ways to adapt this blogging space to who I am becoming,  I have a few reads to share with you. I hope you'll like them as much as I did.

Technology and contemplation

Hakone | Japan 2016.

While I’m still rummaging around the many photos I took in Japan, there is a topic I’d like to share today, a thought I had during my vacation. Is technology a disruption to contemplation? Two weeks across the globe, especially in a country like Japan, calls for contemplation. As the cherry blossoms started fading away, we discovered incredible landscapes, impressive temples and the beauty of big cities, their tall buildings and neons.

Do it for yourself

It is this time of the year, when April begins and all of a sudden, we are in June. As I'm off for some weeks of hectic work, I thought I might leave a word here before I go to E3. After my note on toxic cosmetics, I decided to think a bit more about what place little material luxuries of life have in my version of simplicity.

Travel & Gratitude

The last train in Tokyo, December 2006.

A thousand years ago, Europeans didn't know the American continent existed. A few hundred years ago, it took years for a traveler to go across the world. By the end of the 19th century, traveling around the world in 80 days was a fiction-worthy exploit. And now? Now, we can travel through continents in less than 24 hours. Isn't that awesome? What if we could see the world with the marveled eyes of a child? Or a time traveler?
