Transition from Germany to France

After some wonderful and extremely intense weeks in Germany, I’m now in France. It will take me a while to sort out all the inspiring meetings I’ve had and all new thoughts I got. Promise to post the essence of it, here on the blog in the coming weeks.

The high speed train took me from Cologne to Paris in five hours and now I’m in Chartres, couchsurfing at Collin’s and his girlfriend’s flat. Long interesting talk yesterday evening about Big Heart of Humanity, religion and a lot of other stuff.

Can see the cathedral from my window!

This was the best tarte au citron I ever had, they for sure know how to make cakes and cook in France. But I crashed into the rest of the country and am just recovering from the culture chock.

If I exaggerate at bit — no one knows english, everything is half broken, the wi-fi and my computer don’t match, I had to change hotel because they apparently had lost my internet booking …

Well, now I’ve taken some deep breaths, opened my heart and I start to like France. People are friendly and we manage with a little english and a little french. The trains leave on time and it’s beautiful and charmante. I love France!

What do we see? The house, the sky, the bottom, the autumn leafs, the water surface, the mirroring of the tree?

What do we see? The contrasts, the colors, the patterns, the lines, the light, the dark?

What do we feel? think?

What is really there …

The Heart doesn’t care, it just loves it all.

Town centre and the cathedral.

Autumn still life.

    Seems to be a very interesting journey your on! Is it perhaps a search for your innermost Self?

    Hi Åke,
    Maybe it is … or maybe this journey is an expression of it and not a search for it … or there might not even be an innermost self …
    Anyway, I just had a wonderful tiramisu in Arles. And I’m a bit lost and tiered.
    Big Heart, Stina
