*flashes of Bordeaux.

Oh the Sundays afternoon…if you are not enjoying the sun laying down on the grass… or enjoying the summer at the beach… In a public pool or hiking somewhere around or far away… generally “the lazy day” is a day to think about other places… other times… we have nostalgia coming back or some urges that make you want to go back… Today, as I enjoy my day of “farniente” because it is important to have it still… of course we want to enjoy the “work-free” days… we want to do things that normally make you leave the house… but how great it is also to just “exist”? (credits to Joana de Pinho on this marvellous expression that makes all the sense!) How often do we just let us be?

Anyway…

Today I got caught into remembering beautiful Bordeaux! And of course, by association, I was thinking about fierce Eva!

If there is someone that inherited the force of this Earth is her. I never met someone so strong. She is such a model to me. She managed to go through a lot, and she conquered her life. She is such a wonder woman! I’m proud to call her my friend! I am grateful everyday for just being able to ask for a friend and she just embraced it. Since I decided to take my car to go to her… We just had all kinds of everything! There are nights I don’t remember (I am actually glad I don’t… the story she told me was hilarious, but I am glad I don’t remember 😂) We had quiet nights, we walked around, I took pictures… we almost set fire to her balcony risking a nice visit from the police! We rubbed some lions’ faces! We saw a building on fire across the street… got lost into some very delicious tapas… and just enjoyed life with all of the terrible shit that you go through… hating the people that “got it easy” and then remembering the ones that are worse and getting our humility back… That is what I experience with Eva… and not only… because every time there is something new…

We were never so close on the map…

But somehow I always need to go back…

Refill some energy that I only can get from my true persons…

<3 Bordeaux was also nice 😉 of course, I never fully visit when I come to you…

But you know that I don’t come for tourism 🙂 I always come for you 🙂

Love you, T.
