|Espresso and good book // my picture|
While I am traveling around the world, here is a little photo collection of moments of happiness I have been lucky to experience in June 2013. Just a graphic way to express gratitude, and enjoy the little moments of joy in life. Above: enjoying a real, strong, black espresso after one week of American coffee (no offense) while reading a great book.
|Fresh Flowers and Home-made Cake // my picture|
Spreading fresh flowers from the market all over the appartment, making a cinnamon & clove cake, and enjoying a warm slice as a reward for my cooking efforts.
|Reading at the Lake // my picture|
Jumping out of the appartment at first sun, with sandals and sunglasses, walking to the nearest park, finding a spot near the lake and reading, all afternoon, suspended in time, bathed in children's laughs, splash sounds from swimming dogs and early summer's sun rays.
|Serendipitous Concert // my picture|
Commuting at the Châtelet station and stumbling upon an improvised live concert. Enjoying the music like in the front row of a concert room.
|The second mini-cannelé // my picture|
Getting my weekly demi-baguette de pain (bread, not suffering) at my local organic boulangerie, buying a miniature cannelé, and, because it's late and it's the last one, getting the second one for free, with a wide smile from the boulangère. Unexpected kindness from strangers is a rare luxury.
This post is planned, I am probably in a 24 hour flight from Singapore to Montreal right now. Or maybe in Montreal, struggling with epic jetlag. Or somewhere. I'll be back in Paris on the 29th of June, ready and able to respond any comments, or turn into a zombie. I wonder what Jules Verne would have made of it. Le tour du monde en vingt-quatre heures?
