So we are going back to Goa for some Ayurvedic treatments and Delhi for some shopping. I will try to post everyday here, depending on a Wifi signal. So I obviously didn’t post everyday. I took the opportunity to completely chill and let go of all this non sense; unplug if you will. We ate on the other roof top this time and I liked … Continue reading Back to Goa, and Delhi (2018)
Mom and I organize trips to India every year centered around Ayurveda. This year we went to Mandrem Goa. Goa is unlike any other Indian State. It was colonized by the Portuguese and still has a strong Catholic presence as well as the taste for alcohol. This is probably why most people, including Indians, go there to have fun and party on the beach without … Continue reading Trip to Goa
I cannot help it. It is just too beautiful. I found a few more pics I want to post here. This is where I hung out with a cup of coffee chilling and listening to roosters signing and sometimes the rain coming in. My family owns some property in the mountains. This is the view from the balcony looking down at the river. … Continue reading Ok, more about my home.
So this might be my last post from Guadeloupe for now since I am back in the frigid cold of Saint Louis Missouri. I absolutely love this beach. I don’t like to be where there are many people. This beach was perfect for me also because I could find many corals that I want to use to make jewelry. I’ve made a small video for … Continue reading Secluded beach in Guadeloupe
I haven’t been home in a while so my friends brought me to a secluded beach. It is such a lovely intimate quiet place. I spent the whole time looking for beautiful pieces of corals on the shore. I took comfort in the sounds of the waves crashing and wind and birds up above. I collected quite a few coral pieces. I am hoping to … Continue reading Coral beach
It has been three years since I have been back home to Guadeloupe. It is a small French island in the Caribbean. Norwegian has the absolute cheapest flights. I forgot how beautiful it is. My favorite part is to just sit on my friend’s porch, feel the breeze, listen to the sounds of roosters, dogs and just chill. I don’t know why things are so … Continue reading I flew back home. Now my arms are tired.
So Jennifer and I went to Chicago for a much needed one day mini vacation. We had a great time. We travel well. Maybe it’s because we are easy, lol. We got there in time for breakfast so we went to Cafe Sel Marie. It’s a great place for breakfast and lunch in Lincoln Square. Then we went to one of my favorite store Merz … Continue reading A Much needed break.
Every year my mom and I bring people to India. This is Varanasi. We’re on our way to see the Ayurvedic doctor. Varanasi is a holly city right on the Ganges (Ganga) river. Shiva is the main deity. There is one temple right on the river where they cremate bodies 24 hours a day. It’s an amazing ritual that has gone on for more than … Continue reading Rickshaw ride with friends in India!

Enjoy… The trip from Stl to Bangalore So it has been an interesting 3 days so far but hey, when you’re in India, everything is interesting. We finally made it to Kannur. We took a train … Continue reading India – The Whole Story
I guess I have to back up a little. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. I went to Carlsbad California to an artfair. I really enjoyed myself and met some really cool people. If I hadn’t done so many drugs when I was younger I’d remember their names. I do however remember Judy Jewel. I really liked her work. Ok, so here … Continue reading My show in Carlsbad!!!

I have 14 days to create 12 paintings…I think I can do it! The wonderful thing is that my whole show is bought. This is a … Continue reading Breakfast…no…dinner in Ottawa
I think it’s more confusing because I made the mistake of thinking that I would never be confused like that again, hehehe. I feel so weird and lost, yes lost and scared. I feel my life has been flipped upside down yet nothing has changed…weird. The change must be in me. It’s stemming out of me. Maybe that’s why it’s so scary. If it was … Continue reading So I’m so confused.
So here I am once again in Ottawa. This time around I went through Montreal and I have to say it was a much better experience with the custom agents. I feel like I’m having a mid-life crisis. I feel like I’m at a crossroad, a fork. I’m not sure which way to go. I feel a little weak and vulnerable because I feel lost. … Continue reading O Canada
