It always goes by too fast
It's now all in the past
Live up and have a blast
It might take you a while
Try one step and then a mile
Travel the world, stay on your isle
Eventually, again you'll smile
You got to say goodbye
And all you can do is cry
He now has wings to fly
He is your angel in the sky.

This weekend was pretty productive, if I may use this adjective… 7 movies.
Two of them are French so everyone might not know them. If I had to choose ONE movie, out of all the ones I watched this weekend, the choice would be easy. They were all great in their own style but my favorite and far ahead of all the other is a French movie called “La tête en friche”. The movie was made after the book of the same name, written by Marie-Sabine Roger.
The story is beautiful: a simple man, sweet, nice who isn’t really well-educated and who has been called an idiot by everyone, even his own mother, since he has been born, meets Margueritte (with 2 Ts), a 95-year-old lady with an open mind and a great culture and education. Together, they meet every day in a park, on the same bench and count the pigeons. Margueritte reads to him out loud and thus goes their relationship… 2 completely different persons from 2 completely different backgrounds who meet on a bench and share the love that they have to offer. Margueritte is the grandma we have all had or dreamt of having, she is smart, she is lovely, she is beautiful and all you can wish is sit on that bench and listen to the stories she reads…
The month of January is always made of good resolutions and new beginnings for everyone. I usually don’t make any resolutions or want to start something new when a new year beginning but this year is different…
I lost someone very close to me in 2010 and that was the end of a big part of my life. I had a choice: keep crying and be sad or start over and be happy. I chose to be happy cause that’s what she would have wanted.
My first resolution of this year was to be a better penpal and live my passion for snail mail to its fullest. What is a passion if you can’t share it with others, right? I have met lots of amazing people through letters and my life wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for them. In order to show them (and the rest of the world) how their letters/cards/packages are important to me, I have decided to create this blog.
So let’s be bubbly and share our passion together and with the rest of the world =]
