Calme apres-midi de canicule d un ete, d un ciel, d un jardin. Friday, Jul 22 2011 

L evaporation d eau a la lavande,
sur les rideaux apporte la fraicheur bienvenue,

Le bol de fruits rouges du jardin,
cerises, framboises, fraises,
pres de l oreiller a portee des doigts,

tu reinvente des fleurs
avec des petales de pensees,
sur mes joues endormies.

After the rain…the smell of cut grass in the sun Wednesday, May 4 2011 

After the precise moves of the scythe

have cut through the grass,

the air is filled with the multiple fragrances of herbs.

Un moment tactile fugace grace a une simple feuille verte pleine de vie au printemps Wednesday, Apr 13 2011 

J aime toucher les jeunes feuilles vertes et douces, au printemps.

Que dire de plus,

le bonheur est parfois un si simple geste.

Strange spring, petals and particles in the air Saturday, Mar 26 2011 

I hear, the victims in Japan need our charity. I had heard, Japan is one of the richest country in the world with a high grade of social and technological sophistication.

How comes, the help given to those poor people, reminds me the situation once in New Orleans?

The solidarity I can have, is feeling with the simple people who show their feelings …it is human!. I don’t join in, praising the so called special character in adversity. Do I hear from their own wealthy people helping ? Don t be too humble telling, beside stock market stabilisation and production concerns. At least, I see some in the population getting angry, and I hear even system critical voices inside the country. At least, they know that Japan s culture is not only about obedience.

Remember, the Chernobyl disaster was also at spring, when all wanted to enjoy life after a long winter. And here we go again. I feel sad looking at my garden . How must it be, to look at nature these days over there.

It s spring…time for revolution! Monday, Feb 7 2011 

Spring wakes up strong,

bursting green and blue,

joyful birds, folks in love,

on the street is revolution,

juicy renaissance overcomes each winter !

 

 

Underchallenging intelligence as imposed normality Saturday, Jan 15 2011 

The mainstream society has a wrong idea about intelligence, assuming it is only one middle class success trip more. Intelligent are to them, those who climb faster up the rat cage making the right noises without questioning too much the paradigm , and collect lots of good child points for giving “the right expected answers”!. Not to forget an all bunch of “experts” making money and themselves looking “smart” out of this absurd assumption. What a lousy uncreative projection, who I know, many intelligent human don’t fulfill! Those are than those, who truly change the now to prepare the future.

If someone is evidently intelligent but does not please the rat race  or even considers using his intelligence to ask challenging questions or to live differently to what they assume as his “privileges” in the world, I  heard them saying…yes, very intelligent, but must be emotional unripe to not “cooperate” with the dogma of hierarchical superiority!… as if pleasing this corrupt cynical society would be a sign of maturity!

At least in France, I still can openly reflect philosophically with almost everybody I might even just meet, but I wonder how many patroniser from over the pond, I can handle, telling me that their limit of comprehension is the limit of the human potential and has to be the limit of my experiences and thoughts. Mostly making it very clear, that trespassing this smile mainstream border of happy believers would transform me into a frustrated outsider,what tells more about how scary must it be to them to think outside the pre-digested concepts, than about my friends garden and pleasure to live!.

As someone who knows the delight and the troubles , intelligence brings into life, and as someone who feels that this gift is a duty to serve life deeply, not a shallow narcissistic trip more, I have a little demand (who might fall on charitable ground in few…intelligent ones?!):

If you don’t understand, ask questions, instead of trying to reduce my perception to the admiration of the rat cage design.

Midwinter light Friday, Dec 24 2010 

I wish to all in these days, human celebrated since ever the renaissance of the light, a peaceful joyful time.

Maybe with a wish for less co2 increasing “house decoration”and more inner enlightenment, less consumerism and more concerned universal caring compassion.

Here a little flame of hope in a nutshell to warm you up!

A smile, the silence, the snow, the stars in the dark blue night….all free gifts.

 

 

How much heat do we truly “need”? Monday, Dec 20 2010 

From year to year , I need less heat at winter.

A little wood fire to cock the meal or a bit in the evening and that’s it.

Wrapped in blankets and half gloves when I write,

Onion layers of pullovers & clothes,

Thick old walls, walking &working outside,

well covered at night,

An epigenetic memory of those ancestors, who survived with less”comfort”, like making friendship with a colder season, and being surprised about the own capacity to handle it.

The “normal” heated houses and stores appears terribly overheated, and strangely tiring. After visiting them, I feel a lost of energy.

A little bit more freedom !

Inondation previsible Sunday, Dec 12 2010 

La coupe des buissons, le drainage des champs, la canalisation “moderne”, le changement climatique ont double rapidement le volume de la petite riviere  apres la fonte de la neige, maintenant elle ondule  perdue dans les champs, ayant quitte son lit tranquille.

“Spiritual”coaches Saturday, Dec 11 2010 

I just read some article about the power (ever noticed, it s always about the “power”) of honesty.

I had a big laugh and thought, I highly doubt it will go that far that they tell  the true change phobic middle class followers, the harsh truth that neoliberalism is deeply unhealthy, that authenticity is not the path to “more wealth” and “more success”, and no, nerds don’t turn into frogs to kiss.

The black hole of reality avoidance of a certain “spiritual” scene is built on  mistrust towards honesty. Assuming that the ability to make pleasing “sound good noises”, which feed their own wealth, is the greater inner achievement as opposed to  sharing  a “disastrous” common ground  of REAL care.

Such a waste of precious life time and energy, so needed for AUTHENTIC social and ecological engagement. This sugar glazing of the worst systems for the sake of “don’t think too deep, smile to pseudo solutions” gives me a deep sensation of  disgust and sadness about cliché fulfilling double languages pretending to “help” the world. Spirituality is not about selling “nicely wrapped” sweets.
