Feeling extremely fortunate my image 'Pride' was selected from over 500 entrants to be included in the “Celebration of Life” exhibitions at the Nikki Beach Clubs internationally, including during the Cannes Film Festival.

My family left two days ago and the house feels very empty. They are now back home in Paris and Auckland, after we spent two and a half weeks together in LA and traveling through Southern California. Time to get back to work after this epic journey.

Good morning! Here is the English translation of Jacques Brel's 1968 New Year wishes:
'I wish you to wish.
I wish you to desire.
Happiness, is already to want.
Like in criminal law, the intention is worth the action.
The mere fact of dreaming is already very important.
I wish you endless dreams.
And the furious urge to realize a few.
I wish you to love what must be loved,
and to forget what must be forgotten.
I wish you passions.
I wish you silences.
I wish you bird songs upon awakening,
and children's laughter.
I wish you to respect the differences of others, for the merit and the worth of each of us often remain to be discovered.
I wish you to resist rut
and indifference
and the negative virtues of our time.
I wish you, finally, to never renounce the search, adventure, life, and love,
for life is a magnificent adventure and none reasonable should ever give in without a harsh fight.
I wish you above all to be yourself, proud to be, and happy,
for happiness is our true destiny.'

H A P P Y N E W Y E A R !
After the turmoil of 2017, I wanted to share a message of hope: Jacques Brel's wishes to the world first heard on Europe 1 radio on January 1, 1968. Today in French, tomorrow in English. Anglophones, stay tuned! « Je vous souhaite de souhaiter.
Je vous souhaite de désirer.
Le bonheur, c’est déjà vouloir.
Comme en droit pénal, l’intention vaut l’action.
Le seul fait de rêver est déjà très important.
Je vous souhaite des rêves à n’en plus finir.
Et l’envie furieuse d’en réaliser queques-uns.
Je vous souhaite d’aimer ce qu’il faut aimer,
et d’oublier ce qu’il faut oublier.
Je vous souhaite des passions.
Je vous souhaite des silences.
Je vous souhaite des chants d’oiseaux au réveil,
et des rires d’enfants.
Je vous souhaite de respecter les différences des autres parce que le mérite et la valeur de chacun sont souvent à découvrir.
Je vous souhaite de résister à l’enlisement,
à l’indifférence
et aux vertus négatives de notre époque.
Je vous souhaite enfin de ne jamais renoncer à la recherche, à l’aventure, à la vie, à l’amour, 
car la vie est une magnifique aventure et nul de raisonnable ne doit y renoncer sans livrer une rude bataille.
Je vous souhaite surtout d’être vous, fier de l’être et heureux,
car le bonheur est notre destin véritable. »

"I laughed and laughed and laughed, exactly like an insane man. Nor did I know what I was laughing about. I wasn't thinking of a thing. I was just overwhelmed with joy, just crazy with delight in finding myself absolutely alone."
