Pursuit

 
 
A reflection  caught in the windows of the Cocteau Museum .
 
The statue of Ulysses ,
 by Anna Chromy
 
 
 
" Happiness is like the Island of Ithaca ,
that was always leaking
 in front of Ulysses "
 
( Voltaire )
 
We could say the same about reflections !

Sun Day

 
After a rainy saturday ,
 sun-day had the best possible name !
 
Nature was calling ,
it was time for a stroll .
 
 
 
No need to drive very far to find
a good spot to enjoy the view .
The city is just below .
 
 
 
 
 
Looking to the north  , it's easier to see
 the last tracks of our sweet winter .
 
 
 
Looking to the west ,
the airport ,
then  mountains of Esterel
and Maures  ..
 
 
 
.. and the blue  shore ,
along the old part of the city ..
 
 
 
 
 
And when your steps guide you southward ..
 
( Beware to stop before cliffs !)
 
 
 
 .. capes , bays ..
 
 
.. islands ,
 
 
 
.. and my beloved Mediterranean Sea .

Cocoon

 
 
It's raining .
A southern rain ,
very heavy and strong .
The kind of rain that tells you to stay at home .
 
 
 
 
Tea ? ok
Cats ? ok
Books ? ok
Movies ? ok
 
You know what ?..
 
It's gonna be a very good week-end  !

Unexpected

 
An unusual view was waiting for me this morning .
 
 
 
Because of bad weather conditions ,
this Norvegian cruise boat could not reach Monaco Harbor .
 
 
And as it is a VERY big boat ,
our port was too small too ,
and the ship  had to wait outside..
 
 
 
To see what happened to passengers ,
have a look HERE .

Poor Louis !

Carnaval 2015 is supposed to celebrate MUSIC .
But friday evening , for the Grand Opening ,
it was raining ,
 so celebration  was canceled .
 
 
Yesterday afternoon, it was raining again .
So, no parade .
 
This morning , sky was grey ,
it was very cold , we were hoping ..
But half of an hour after the parade began ,
rain started to fall ..
 
 
M. Armstrong  may cry ,
I bet he never got so much rain on his head ..
Poor Louis !

Monet and me

 
Sometimes ,
 when you see things every day
you don't look at them anymore .
 
 
Then ,
 you see the same thing through someone's else eyes ,
like a painter .
It could be Nicolas de Staël , or Paul Signac ,
it was Claude Monet .
 
And you realise ..
 
 
 
 
 
how this light is perfect ,
how this winter blue sky can be attractive ,
how this view is wonderful ,
never different and never the same anyway ..
 
 
.. and you sigh ,
'cause you're feeling  happy ..

Ambition


 
This is the story of little rocks 
who were looking at  high mountains and thinking :
" One day , we'll be as big as mums and dads ! "
