When I look back at the Year 2020, which has been such a disaster for so many people, I find some beautiful images of the marvels of our world which I wanted to share with you for future travels. Not everything was negative, we learned to rediscover little moments of daily life like discussing with the cheese monger or seeing the trees blossom on an everyday basis. We learned to be happy with tiny things like being allowed out one hour a day. I wish you a much happier 2021 with beautiful projects and successes.
The first camellia of the confinement was a true miracle when it appeared. And then roses followed and lily of the valley. Spring was more beautiful than ever and it really mattered.
Enjoying the beach just before masks were mandatory in July in the South of France. Being able to be by the sea and to share time with a few friends, even to listen to a private concert were moments of bliss.
Missing Cornwall in August this year but remembering all the wonderful times in Porthgwara, near Land’s End, alone with dear friends at the extremity of the world. This is another destination with no shops and no crowds if you pick the right cottage like the one featuring here, called “Far away cottage”.
Longing for snow which has not arrived yet. And longing for sunny palm trees landscapes like in Santo Domingo or in Louxor!
The view I wish I oucld afford from my bed is this painting which is part of the David Hockney exhibition that everyone agrees on is “My Normandy” at Galerie Lelong. If you have not been yet, rush before it closes on February 27. It is uplifting, classical contemporary painting with great maestria. And such an honor for Normandy that the British master has chosen to settle there for a while.
Times have been tough for many but let’s look at the bright side of having seen so much of our families during confinement. Never again will we be for 24 hours a day with children and grand children.
