This post is certainly the last before… the winter solstice. Yes. Beginning Sunday, I’m very happy to announce [even if I have nothing to do with this] that the days will be longer.

You’ll never know how this idea pleases me—exactly the kind of positive thought I need right this moment.

I don’t know how you do it, guys, but if you ask me, I’ve become my own shadow as this year nears its end. What’s with the aura… The hair… The disposition? Hey, why are you in tears and why are you laughing? Hey, Garance, I’m talking to you. Are you asleep or what? Aha. True.. Pathetic. Dull and dreary state of mind!

Except that when I find myself in the doldrums , face buried in scarf and counting the days before vacation begins… I run into a shining, shimmering, splendid star like Clémence Poésy.

And there, I realize there are girls who remain radiant and glowing even in the dead of winter. Instinctively, I ask to take their photos. They say ‘yes’ so graciously, laugh and talk. They’re the picture of simplicity and life itself.

What’s more, they ask for my name and tell me they love what I do.

At the end of the day, I’m full of pride, blessed with a ray of light and like a child running with a treasure find.

Oh, c’mon. Lighten up. Don’t you sometimes want to be cheesy and romantic? Well, I do !

Because just so you know, I’m about to stick labels onto my luggage and speed off  to a hot, desert land where I might not be able to blog that often.

There’s no telling what’s in store for the blog, hopefully, loads of fun and laughter. We’ll see about that next week. Happy holidays, everyone!
