A perfect day at the beach!

My favorite pictures of the month! It was at the cliff house in San Francisco.
Life is good!
Peace and love...

Quote from August Wilson

I just love this quote!!!

“Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. Use the pain as fuel, as a reminder of your strength.”

Artsy peeks for 14 th july

Growing up in France, civic lessons were my favorite part of the school day. Our elementary school principal was the mayor of a small village(Mr Clavez... if I recall). He was so passionate about our future as citizens.  He gave us a beautiful message of hope. Thanks to him, I loved everything about  the French revolution. The Marianne was the emblem of that free republic. In high school, I found out about Cordier's sculptures. Cordier described that other part of France, which I belong. Nevertheless, when I turned eighteen years old, I rushed  to get my card of elector. So Mr Clavez did a great job.Thank you!!
Here some of Cordier busts...

White Lion by Michael Swan

This was our evening movie last night. It is a feel good movie for children. However, it is an amazing movie. The scenes are beautifully filmed. Each scene is filled with endless metaphors. They are powerful and so real. It was a perfect way to discuss confidence, strength, weakness, fear, and life with our 8 years old.  The metamorphosis of a fragile awkward cub into a fierce lion king is fantastic.  I just found the entire movie on YouTube so I had to share!!!Thank you  Michael Swan!! Enjoy!

"When a rare white lion is born to a pride in an African valley, a Shangaan boy named Gisani (Thabo Malema) believes it his is responsibility to protect the cub, which he names Letsatsi. Tribal beliefs dictate that the lion is a messenger of the gods. But Letsatsi breaks free of his pride and must learn to survive on his own. Meanwhile, Gisani learns that a trophy hunter wishes to track Letsatsi down and kill him."
