a little message…
Posted in nature, personal April 5th, 2010 by pia


Mes amis, I have been having so much fun with the book. I still have lots to do so I will not be back here in the (blog)house full time just yet, but I wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you! And that all is well.

I must confess, taking this blog break has been wonderful. For the first week or so I fretted, then I found a certain clarity, then all my ideas, words and vision came flooding forth – what a fabulous feeling! For the first time in a long while I don’t feel like time is running too quickly.

Anyway, I won’t chat for too long as I have photos to edit, just this little message for now. Oh, and I have still been checking out blogs every now and then when on my tea + chocolate breaks, and I found this gorgeous illustration by Krista Nyberg above from post carden – check out what it is exactly (hint: think portable garden gift), I love it! I found it via the beautiful read baron.


PS French Boy has just made crêpes for dinner – the smell is wafting through the boat. He is making crêpes au jambon and then we will have the rest for dessert with nutella. I’m quite sure I am in heaven.

    hi pia – – glad to hear the writing is going swimmingly, LOVE the mini garden (going straight out to get me one tomorrow – beats a window box!) and wonder if french boy has a brother that can visit london to make me some crepes too…deeply envious.
    take care and look forward to your return when all’s said and written..

    Sometimes a break from something can be so therapeutic, while you are greatly missed I’m so pleased you are having lovely moments…. and I’m sure the outcome will be so wonderful XXX

    Breaks are when the creative genius has room to strike.

    a new book? how dó you do it? and you seem to do it…
    i have thoroughly enjoyed the paris one. as a young girl i visited paris often, having a dear friend in town, and well, loving paris. it was never too far away, from belgium.
    now [if thalys is running accurately], paris is soooooooo much closer… you and your blog always remind me a little of the city.
    i did go and find a shop you talked about in your book, in belleville! thank you for the tip!

    Beautiful. Makes you think of Babylon and the beauty of living without borders and only fantasies.
