- Toni Morrison
After I published my last post, as I sat brewing, my mother came into my office with two mugs of steaming tea. I told her my troubles, told her my dreams and ideas.

Afin de travailler! And I know just where to start; so to work!

I know that it sound be counter-intuitive, but there is something very quiet, calming, intimate and soothing about moving through a milling crowd.
Vivre! Rire! Aimer!
