Mais l'observatrice détachée le restera-t-elle ?< Less

Everybody starts writing at some time in his life, career or peregrinations (if he or she is lucky enough to be travelling the world). I am, (both: writing from time to time and travelling the... More > world), but at times what I write does not fit in anything I might have started that would be a book of memoirs (I might be considered to young), or essay (maybe not enough of a writer to do that), and so the things I happen to write in the “spirit of the moment” end up on a peace of paper, a “post-it-note” (you know, the little sticky yellow things) or I just forget about it. This compilation is (supposedly) the gathering of those lost thoughts and a little more. Some are or will be relevant to those who happen to have lived “the moment” with me (hy there, thought you’d never hear about me anymore hey?) some are just good for any time or situation. As usual what you will make out of it is entirely up to you.< Less
