Because I miss words
I sit at Starbucks, my computer open on the wooden table that serves as my temporary office. A blockboard, my fuel, stands proudly to his right. And I'm here, arms crossed, to fix the blank page that shows my screen. I do not know what to write.
Since last Friday, I've been on my cell more than ever; I am not the only one. I listen, I watch and I read in order to inform myself and, naively perhaps, to try to understand. I browse the press sites, I take the time to read the journalists as much as Mr. and Mrs. Everybody who take Facebook as a tribune time for a status. I do not approve everything I read, far from it, but I choose to ignore it.
I am the one who wants to quote all those who manage to find the right words while I miss them. I salute their pen, I salute the courage they have to use it. It gives texts so beautiful, so right.
By furnishing this page my way, I think of Margaux, my beautiful French friend that I find even further than usual. It's been about four months that we said "next time" as she returned home. During her trip to Canada, Margaux said the following words, a speech that marked me and that I will always remember:
"Anyone can paint: just have brushes, paint, and a canvas. Anyone can paint, but in the end, not all paintings will be displayed in an art gallery. It's the same for writing: anyone can write, but not everyone has the gift of lining up words one after the other to make it a masterpiece. "
I'm still sitting on the same chair of the Starbucks, not knowing what to say, what to write other than thank you. Thanks to those who find the words in those moments where we can miss them.
I have summer rituals, holiday rituals, renewal rituals in the spring ... but my fall rituals remain the most powerful. So here are three very different, but equally magical, ways to celebrate autumn.
I am a fan of face masks and have tested a lot since I use them. I admit that they are not all favorites for me, but t, the quantity I test is things that can happen. Some give great results, while others do not really improve my skin.
