Now, a very different tone... If wind and storms invigorate you, if the sound of the sea soothes you, if you love to walk under the moon, if you like John Steinbeck, Verdi, Jim Jarmusch, Leonard Cohen, François Truffault, Jean-Pierre Jeunet,... if watching the stars fills you with awe and humbleness, if you like wild flowers, if you try to be kind to our planet, if you lean to the left - and you could put up with my beard and my hair, let's see if we could walk together...

I am easy to live with, hard shell, and soft inside
Trying to figure out what I want to do for the next 10 years. I have been in computers for about 20 years and it's enough... Four years ago, I had the opportunity to teach Physics and Chemistry for a whole trimester and I loved it.
I love taking photos.
Driving too fast, not getting enough sleep.
July 21, 2013: I didn't notice I was going too fast in a downhill on my bike and could not take the coming bend... I fell heavily and got seriously injured... The first aid and ER people were fantastic. Since then I have scars on my face... they make me look tough.
December 1, 2013: I am not in software anymore... I am teaching English to my colleagues.
January 17, 2014: I am seeing Raphaelle.
I have some kind of an accent when I speak English.
I go through periods where I read a lot and periods where I don't read at all. Today, I am in an off period... Books/authors I liked from the last reading period are "Cannery Row" in particular and any John Steinbeck, The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel, The Da Vinci Code, The Snow Falcon by Stuart Harrison, Henry de Monfreid, Rudyard Kipling, "Italian Shoes" by Henning Mankell.
The Coen Brothers, François Truffaut, Milos Forman, Cédric Klapisch, Jim Jarmusch, The Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin, Agnés Varda, Quentin Tarantino, Federico Fellini, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Jean-Jacques Beneix, Laurel and Hardy...
Hmm... Shows? TV shows? I don't have a TV... I saw some Seinfeld and the other one with Louis Malle's wife, Candice Bergen, but when I noticed that TV was so addictive and that I was watching everything, I decided to dump it and buy a radio. I liked listening to NPR and another alternative radio which was programming, among other things, some French music from time to time in Chicago. Now in France, I mostly listen to France Inter, France Musique and Radio Classique.
For music I could go on and on and on and on...
Leonard Cohen, Alela Diane, Beth Gibbons, Antony (and the Johnsons), Greg Brown, Cesária Évora, Sarah McLachlan, Jackson Browne, King Crimson, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jeff Buckley, Loreena McKennitt, Mikis Theodorakis, Gabriel Yacoub, Pierre Bensusan, Andrea Bocelli, Verdi, Joan Baez, James Blunt, Fairport Convention... quite a few French speaking ones, African groups...
Bread, wine, tomatoes, garlic, cheese, peaches, balsamic vinegar, eggplants, peppers, zucchinis, lentils, leeks, rutabagas, cabbage, beans (white, black, red, green), coffee, chocolate, wine, duck, goose, rabbit, sea fish, Thanksgiving... Mexican, Chinese, Italian, French, English (boiled eggs, boiled potatoes, boiled tomatoes, boiled water, boiled bread, boiled meat... Oh my God! Boiled too?), American cuisines...
I love postcards, the Ocean, wind, big waves, light, storms, silence, deserted areas, hair (long, short, straight, curly, wavy, red, blond, black, white, salt and pepper, thick, silky, coarse, bushy...), holding hands... itsy bitsy gypsy brainy pretty witty bubbly lefty zesty happy earthy lively lovely women and...
