Have come relatively recently to Vancouver. Grew up in Paris and have been living in different places for work before moving to Vancouver.
Love the outdoors, camping, snowboarding, hiking, arts....
Can talk for ever about food, cooking or my eclectic taste in music ...
Like dancing ...yes I said "like" ...which doesn't necessarily mean that I am good at it!
Laughing and learning everyday, volunteering, , travelling, arts, books, comedies, social justice are also important to me.
Like meeting with people of different origins, learning about different paths of life, different cultures....
People who try to make the world a better place quietly with simple acts of kindness or perform their everyday job with the spirit of service have always struck a chord with me.
Let's meet! Let's go for a tea or a coffee and avoid endless emails. No it is not a "date", it is a bit of friendship...a sine qua non condition before starting a relationship ...therefore antinomic with anything fake related to dating. Yes it takes a bit of time.
Also no profile picture no answer ...sorry!
Cyrano, Mesrine, Spanish apartment, all kinds of documentaries.
All kind of music I like Pop Jazz Hip Hop Reggae, soul, Bossa Nova, Dusbstep but also classical, traditional and modern Indian, Chinese, Japanese, west African , Persian music yes I have a very eclectic taste. Right now I listen to Stromae, Indila...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiKj0Z_Xnjc.
and food don't get me started... I believe in you are what you eat.... So it is mostly fresh healthy, delicious, mostly vegetarian, mostly cooked by myself from all cultures et every part of the world.
The diversity of colors in a rose-garden adds to the charm and beauty of the scene as variety enhances unity.....
The happiness and greatness, the rank and station, the pleasure and peace, of an individual have never consisted in his personal wealth, but rather in his excellent character, his high resolve, the breadth of his learning, and his ability to solve difficult problems ...
A tree laden with fruits always bends low. Humility is a sign of greatness.
Adam's sons are body limbs, to say; For they're created of the same clay. Should one organ be troubled by pain, Others would suffer severe strain. Thou, careless of people's suffering, Deserve not the name, "human being".
That which does not kill us makes us stronger.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. Aim for service and success will follow.
You are what you eat!
A man’s life is interesting primarily when he has failed–I well know. For it’s a sign that he tried to surpass himself.
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.
Knowing is not enough; We must apply. Willing is not enough; We must do.
The only difference between reality and fiction,
is that fiction needs to be credible.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
A ship in harbor is safe -- but that is not what ships are built for.
John A. Shedd
It is not impossibilities which fill us with the deepest despair but possibilities which we have failed to realize.
The edge is the safest place to be during times of uncertainty.
Always reserve the right to laugh the day after at your ideas of the day before
You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf
There are only two places in the world where we can live happy: in our home and in Paris.
