enjoy being alive – profitez d’être en vie…

“As long as you keep breathing, there are more things in your life that go right than things that go wrong.”(Jon Kabat-Zinn)

season of mindfulness – saison de pleine conscience
patience, understanding – patience, compréhension
compassion, hope – empathie, optimisme
we all have a secret garden – nous avons tous un jardin secret
where dreams and reality mix up – où rêves et réalité fusionnent
inside the maze of our memory – dans le labyrinthe de notre mémoire…


paintings by Ellen Dittebrandt – American pastel artist

“Tant que vous continuez à respirer, c’est qu’il y a dans votre vie plus de choses qui vont bien que de choses qui vont mal.”(Jon Kabat-Zinn)

past emotions, future worries – émotions passées, soucis à venir
time and space melt away – temps et espace se confondent
into the eternal present – dans l’éternel présent
art, poetry, literature – l’art, la poésie, la littérature
may not always heal – n’arrivent pas toujours à guérir
but they help move on – mais aident à avancer…


have a fine Friday and a serene weekend, pals!
