Thank you all for your messages of support, here on the blog, on Facebook, Instagram or through private emails. As difficult as these last few days have been for my homeland, my people, my loved ones and myself, it was great to feel all this energy and light coming from all of you. Now, the show must go on, the music needs to continue to make us dance, be happy and #notafraid. So today, I wanted to share life and color through a cheerful image. This desk space is just about that : good design, color and a certain ‘joie de vivre’.
Here is one quote that summarizes my state of mind about these last few days, from your notes to the kind words of a stranger at my grocery store cashier’s line who heard me speak in French to my daughter and told me he was sincerely sorry for the tragedy my country was going through and offered his condolences for my people – I started crying in the middle of the checkout lane, but was overwhelmed with light and positive emotion :
“What we learn in the midst of plagues is that there are more things to admire in men than there are to despise.”
Again, merci to each and every one of you; And now, let the show go on and the music play. Xo, Si-
