I sit in the back seat of the car watching time go by, slowly and then all at once. Outside it’s dull and the air is cold. As I look out the window, I see unfamiliar faces. I wonder what they’re thinking or doing at that moment. We all have different pathways leading is in different places. Our pathways cross and drift apart.
When I get to school, I get my Social Studies binder and start copying down the lesson. Nobody in class, seems to be listening. They teach us about the Fall of Rome.
When the bell rings, my friend Gabriella taps me on the shoulder.
“Come!” She says, looking excited. She’s been my friend for nearly seven years. She’s always been the energetic type, even at 9:00 in the morning.
“What?” I haven’t gotten much sleep in the last 48 hours and I’m still aching from dance last night. I walk down the hallway to my locker. She follows me.
“I wanna show you something,” she says again, “you can’t tell anyone though. Okay?”
“Yes, umm, okay. . .” I say, hesitant. I can’t thing of anything that Gab would need to show me, let alone keep a secret.
However, I follow her.
She leads me down the hall, to the janitor’s closet. Classic.
“Why are you taking me here? I need to go, I have second period. Show me later. There’s nothing here anyway, Gab.” I murmur.
“No,” she sounds serious and her dark brown eyes look directly into mine, ” forget about class. I need to show you something.” She flings her backpack down on the ground until she finds a key. She inserts the key into the keyhole of the janitor’s closet and motions for me to follow her. I follow her into the closet. There are empty cans and hanging brooms in the wall. It smells horrible. I don’t think anyone has been here for a few months, maybe years. Everything has a thick layer of dust on it.
To be continued…
This summer, like every summer, I went to France. I am French and all of my dad’s family lives in Nice, the south of France. I spent ten days at my dad’s aunt and uncle’s and then we heard about an exhibit. An exhibit about lots of artists, Klimt, Makart, Wagner, Hundertwasser, and Schiele. Yay…. A museum… ! The thrill! We had gone to the Chateau de Baux the day before, and loved it. I was excited to see what today’s surprise brought. Turns out the exhibit was in the castle.
We walk into the castle and here loud classical music accompanied by some opera. I felt like I was walking into a dream, full of my favorite artists and the dark castle turned the paintings into the light. Lines projected on the ground turned into drawings, that turned to pictures, that turned to your favorite paintings. A tree trunk would turn into Klimt’s tree of life. Cards flying around turned into a house of cards. Walking around and looking at all the columns with paintings projected on them
was like walking into a painting. And looking down was like looking at your favorite painting right on your feet.
The exhibit is called “Les carrieres de lumieres” it is the most amazing exhibit in a roman made castle that takes to an indescribable land. If you go to Probince go to the castle, go shopping at all the little shops around it, and then go to this exhibit, les carrières des lumières! Les carrières des lumières literally blew my mind away.
Here are some pictures so you can picture the exhibit, Les carrières des lumières, better.
I’m very excited to announce my One Year Anniversary of MT! Applause and shouts please!

Here’s my first video!
It’s officially the Sunday of the summer
We’ve already passed the Friday, June, and the Saturday, July, and it’s Sunday, August. It’s sad, very sad, but there’s nothing we can do about it except HAVE AN EPIC REST OF THE SUMMER!
All I really need to know about how to live and what to do and how to be I learned in Kindergarden. Wisdom was not at the top of thr graduate school mountain, but there in the sandbox at Sunday School. These are the things I learned:
Don’t hit people.
Put things back where you found them.
Clean up your own mess.
Don’t take things that are not yours.
Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody,
Wash your hands before you eat.
Warm cookies and milk are good for you.
Live a balanced life- learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work some everyday.
Take a nap everyday.
When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
Goldfish and hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup, they all die someday. So do we.
Everything you need to know is out there somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation. Ecology and politics and equality and sane living.
And it’s still true, no matter how old you are-when you go out into the world,it is best to hold bands and stick together.

Click this photo to discover my favorite foods.
I made a board of all my favorite foods on Pinterest. I would recommend you to do the same thing.
It looks simple here, but if you click the photo a whole world of yummy foods is born (lol),
Put your thinking cap and do this simple project:
One of the great things about shopping at a thrift store is that you can transform old things into good as new ones.
I took this frame that was originally a dark, ugly brown and simply painted it white. I live near a Goodwill that sells at least 1000 frames that people have most likely gotten rid of cause they are no longer up to date, but if you repaint them they are perfect. You can save money now if you have frames that you no longer like or go to any thrift store and find likely a huge collection of frames. The great thing is that you can do this for anything, especially furniture.
That’s the power of thrifting!
So why did I post this in “Thursday Thoughts”? Because it’s really easy to create unique things with a little thinking!
Stay up to date on my blog ’cause I’m going to do a whole frame project for my room soon!
