Doubts and distractions

Doubts and distractions

Yes, they are around, haunting my mind a bit more heavily these days. The rebound from my last project abroad hit hard, and I realise how much effort it takes to come back to whatever can qualify as “normal”. Except that normality is a concept…

That is probably their fault (and mine too)

That is probably their fault (and mine too)

Oh, the highs and the lows of working on international events, as if I could rant about them: no, not really. At least, they offer something close to a balance… Assuming the spectrum goes from one extreme to the next. So there it is again,…

The retreat

The retreat

So that is it: I am finally out of my summer hibernation, where and when working hours overshadow the resting ones by a lot, and when I get to intensely live a project, for and by said project. I feel a little bit more alive…

“Be impeccable with your word”

“Be impeccable with your word”

Following a rather short campaign, Canada just recently switched Prime Minister and it made the world look twice. From outside of our borders, Justin Trudeau certainly seems young and his election is still stirring multiple reactions. From within the country, thanks to social media, these elections…

Resilient, will travel

Resilient, will travel

First things first: I am back. Back from a long hiatus, mainly due to work engagements, and selfishly due to a basic and primal need to catch up on life: from the boring to the glamourous, and the commitment to attend every detail of it….
