ramblings in a vineyard ou comment partir en weekend

Je me pose des fois la question, si à un moment donné, je ne regrette rien. Un billet de train trop cher, ou un voyage à Paris qui va, une fois de plus, être chargé de beaucoup de self control. And then, oui c’est bilingual, je me dit: “No it’s fine. It’ll bite later.” Ou…

“Barbaric!”

It’s starting again… The lights are glowing The chalets are up and running, markets attracting the monstrous crowds, like moths to the flames, “Barbares! Vous êtes tous des barbares!” she calls out “Consumerism, stinking consumerism”, he wrote to her, full on, all languages confounded. Enjoy the bredele. Well, we told you we had something in…

One night out

I’m running late to one of the best joints in town. My friends had just wrote me and I had flown into action to meet them. It’s a quick walk and past the pass sanitaire control, I enter the brasserie, Au Brasseur, famous for its food and history as a brewery. The place still makes…

The Art of Summer (or how to procrastinate)

We’re a little worn out. Mostly because I have a few ideas I want to work on but I’ve had no energy these past weeks to fully develop them. It was summer and, like everyone else probably, I wanted to rather soak in the sun and music than research and writing. So to show you…

The Weird and Wonderous “Seaweed”

The sea sometimes lives above water. As we live in a world where climate change IS real, what does it take for us to realize that maybe the Earth also listens to karma: what comes around goes around. The sea takes back what’s hers. Talk about #ClimateChange for example. Weird things going on, right? These…

Flowers: Just Beauty or something else?

We are going to try something new: photos. Each month, we’ll come up with a theme for them. Our goal: no long text. No huge politics or analysis (we know that’s getting a little hard to discuss because it’s overwhelming). Just one photo, one hashtag, and one message from us. And your thoughts. Let’s start…

Noël, Christmas: Commercial, Bright Lights, or Joy?

At this time of year, there are a lot of insults going around because of politics, state interests, and plain arrogance in the face of modesty. There is another problem… is just me or has the war on Christmas decorations reared its head again? Well, clearly, we are not a fan of this war and…

500 ans de réforme avec un Playmobil

Aventures de Luther: This summer was not the usual walk in the sun until my leg gives into arthritis. Interning in Le Havre, I was able to get another experience: the professional one. I took advantage of the fact I was in yet another new place to go play the tourist and spend hours under…

Bonne fête!! (sans blague)

En ce jour de la fête nationale, comme si la prise de la prison de la Bastille (une journée d’égorgement par la suite) par le peuple français parisien en 1789 peut être considérée comme une sorte de fête (écoutez le beau sarcasme), nous célébrons bien évidemment notre culture, qui nous êtes tellement cher (même si…

Carnaval!!!!

Le 13 mars dernier, c’était un dimanche. C’était encore la période Carême. C’était presque le printemps. Mais, c’était CARNAVAL!!!! À Strasbourg, c’est toujours en mars juste avant le dimanche des Rameaux. À la bonne mode germanique, il y a musiques, sorcières, danses, bonbons, déguisements et la foule. Très important, la foule… Après le culte, après…
