I am no longer living in a studio in Paris, I am living in the suburbs of LA with my family. I am no longer passing the world's finest boulangeries while strolling to class, instead I am cursing the LA traffic while guzzling a Starbucks Americano.
A world of commerce & capitalism surrounds me, society is homogenized and we are bred to feed this machine. I thirst for independent booksellers & family-owned bakeries, unique clothing boutiques & quirky secondhand shops.
Inspiration is harder to come by here.
....Nevertheless I vow to live fully each moment,
& to actively seek out these inspiring places
And that brings me to the #1 goal of this blog:
To live fully the here and now.
