    it’s official — my jesus year has come and gone. at least in france, where it is now 3am the morning of my bday. this seems unbelievable, but after several looks at the calendar, indeed a year has passed since i decided to leave my venice beach bachelorette pad and move to paree. on a whim.
here’s to adventure. winging it. and following the whispers, as one craigslist buyer called it when she bought two of my dressers as i prepared for the big move.
now a year later, question marks still abound. but plans have been made. at least for tomorrow. when i will drive a car for the first time in a year — alert the authorities! and reflect on the last twelve months at the i-don’t-care-if-it’s-cheesy seaside town of mont st michel as night falls on the day of atonement. yom kippur: i could not have picked a more fitting end to the jesus year. wiping the slate clean. and starting anew. here’s to beginnings. and the post-ephipany year ahead. 
thank you to all who have reached out. supported me. in good times. and bad. i will never forget the sweet comments some of you made to get me through the dark time when my grandfather passed away. and i wondered if i should give up on this dream i had. 
i leave you with with a quote from mr. jobs: “You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” 
keep on keepin on mes amis. bisous from paree!

    my fave part: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” RIP Steve Jobs
