New Profile Photo (ANNOUNCEMENT)

Hey, folks! Random update, but after almost three years with the same Gravatar profile, I've come around to changing it for a more-recent photo. Granted, I look more-or-less the same since the last one, but I still wanted to bring in something new this time around. This is a photo of me in my dear … Continue reading New Profile Photo (ANNOUNCEMENT)

Saturday… come rain or shine, I’m at the local library. Well, when I say local, I mean the city library – one-hour drive away from home. That’s where I get my weekly fix: people, books, culture, life…

As usual, I bring back what I’ve borrowed the previous week, collect what I’ve reserved, have a look at the magazines, check the sewing and cooking books then take everything up on the 3rd floor, settle at my favourite table to read or write while watching the people around me.

For many of us, 2020 meant we had to forget about traveling or rethink how far we wanted to go. Reading the New Year’s posts on WordPress made me realise how much we suffered from this incapacity to do that common thing we’re very fond of. 2021 is still very uncertain in terms of what we’re going to be able to do…

Keeping this in mind while trying to stay sane myself, I thought it would be fun to gather a few bloggers I have regular interactions with around a little project. Often, we virtually “meet” at the end of a blog in the comment box, pointing out which photos we liked, which memories the chosen words woke up, or the interest of a challenge’s prompt. But sometimes it feels slightly isolating. See how needy I am these days?! That’s the perks of being an extrovert in a pandemic locked-down…

2020: My Year in Review

Hello / Bonjour / 你好! 2021 is upon us, and I hoped you had a great (and safe) New Year's celebration last week. What a ride the past year has been, especially with the start of a new decade. But alas, it's one down and nine more to go, and we'll have to see what … Continue reading 2020: My Year in Review
