HAHAHAHHA!! Madness. After parking the van out of town and getting a tram round the Bordeaux crescent on Saturday afternoon, I walked slowly through the chic boutique district, absorbing and soaking it up. It had been two months of quiet, countryside living and I was instantly blown away and smitten. Miles of gorgeous little café-bars and indie shops, bustling with colourful, posing people from all over France and beyond, elegant humans in weekend finery and strangely, even some of the poor street-dwellers looked stylish. I’m looking forward to going back with my trusty street-shooter-cam to capture some of those hidden personalities and possibilities.
Bordeaux, capital of the Duchy of Aquitaine within the crown of England from the 12th to the middle of the 15th century, is the largest UNESCO protected city in the world. It’s known as 'Port of the Moon’ due to the crescent shape the Garonne river makes as it meanders its way North to the join the Dordogne before spilling into the Atlantic.
It’s been a beautiful week, with daughters staying over and lots of river-swimming, canoeing and gorgeous French-living. A week away from work has done me wonders.
But work is calling me back and work I must.
My thoughts are on Mindfulness for Autism - a scientifically proven approach, which as yet, few have taken up. Does M4A need branding and packaging in order for it to be correctly absorbed into the zeitgeist mindset…? Who are we to say…?
Everything has its time.
Meanwhile, the West was won. We’ll be staying near Port of the Moon for a while.
