Pastaga (Pastis)
A game of Pétanque
"Bon alors, tu tires ou tu pointes ?" - "Well, you drive or you draw ?"
This dear Pétanque (must say with a southern singing accent) is originated in La Ciotat, in Provence in 1907.
The names comes from petanca in the Provençal dialect of the Occitan language, deriving from the expression "pès tancats" meaning "feet together" or more exactly "feet anchored".
For the players, this "difficult' sport is very serious and it's funny to listen them, sometimes arguing for knowing who is the closer of the "cochonnet".
But always with smiles, laughs and of course a good "pastis" (the southern aperitif) after the game.

Recipe for a successful guinguette :
> Good old music to dance
> Unlimited bottles of wine
> A bowl of good mood
> A zest of "Franchouillard" (typically French)
> A hint of humor
Leave to simmer in the run
To serve with small French flags !
And the icing on the cake, the naked guy of the statue who plays flute !!! Love it...

Sea, Sand and Sun...

Memories of Martinique Island

"The infinite is in the finite of every instant."
Zen quote

Transparency - Opacity

Pink Touch

"Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old."

It is time to cast off,
Color finally the life in pink,
See its horizon such a fresh start,
For finally take a break.

"Every time you wake up and ask yourself, what good things am I going to do today ?,
remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it will take a part of your life with it."
