Catherine och jag har gjort en hel del jobb tillsammans genom åren. Hon är superhärlig att jobba med. Extremt duktig sminkös med en väldigt härlig personlighet, varm och generös. Det syns på bilden av oss tillsammans. Vi hade en heldag hemma hos henne då det tillagades både mat för magen och för huden. Små enkla kurer som vem som helst kan göra… och det är så annorlunda då man gör själv, känns bättre helt enkelt. Paulina bakom kameran, lika härlig hon. En heldag med vänner som nu finns i bokform! Super!

Last part for the day… going from cafè Marly to pont des Arts, love locks and magical sunset.

And here I stopped a taxi going to my next meeting… too tired to walk more and so content to sit in the shelter of a car. going to the expo of my best friend Bess, ” FLEURS D`EPICE” at boutique Merci, 111 bld Beaumarchais. Grateful for my life… grateful for my frredom to move in time and space. To have a body … and even if not rich… still extremely rich.

Walking 2…Tuileries…Louvre…cafe Marly.

Walking, walking, walking… resting… walking. Landing in where I am, in time, place and within my body. A good time to walk and be present… and let reflections come… and go. Creative mind in action. Studying the four directions to know them by heart. North, east, south, west… what time of the day is it exactly now… and now… and now?  Beautiful to be by the water… Seine… so many life stories have been lived here and the water carries the emotions out to the ocean.

Pieces of art…

Time to sit on a bench…

next to mine this man had his own little universe… and shared his tin of food with a little bird that came and sat right behind him. Sharing what he had. He touched my heart. And I continued filled….

Sat down at café Marly and had some more reflective time with a delicious fresh carrot, ginger juice. Cafè Marly is on the inner side of Louvre and to my left I had the glass pyramide. One of my special places. Sun beginning to set… around 5pm.

Walking…la Tour Eiffel to le Pont Royale sur les quais de Paris

I got so inspired seeing  la Tour Eiffel and the water playing in les bassins de Trocadero that I just started walking. Having no appointment until 5pm I decided to walk les quais de Paris, one of my favourite walks that I had not done for a long time… so this will be a long walk I take you on  and I will share some of my impressions…

Extra bonus was a flee market just by le Pont Royale, the most Golden bridge in Paris, leading to le Grand Palais where Issey Miyake had his show this time and where Yves St Laurent often has his spektacular, gigantic but also very classical shows. I stopped for the best Crepe au sarrasin avec du fromage (buckwheat crepe with cheese) that I ever had. There by the water with the sun shining it was pure delight and total freedom. I continued…

Ann D backstage

Total chaos that gets very quickly organized. That is backstage! If you should compare to the time it takes preparing a meal, eating it and then clean what`s left on the plates, it is nothing compared to the preparation of a show, the last part of it, just hair and make up and getting dressed… that takes many, many hours. the show itself about half an hour and packing up probably less. But the whole creation and preparation is about 6 months with every thing…

Ann talking to the chief editor of American Vogue.

Elza. Great Shamanic inspired beauty image…

lots of work to take it all out.

The show was at Palais de Chaillot at Trocadero. Through backstage you come out below, facing la Tour Eiffel. There started my next journey.
