My World

My World

morocco stamp

Maybe it’s being in a desert under a full moon, or maybe it’s just me. The last time I felt this out-of-this-world sensation as intensely was in similar circumstances, five years earlier, in the largest salt desert in the world. It was the same kind of night, where nothing seemed real. So here I am walking through a dream again, but this time it’s not -20 degrees. In fact, I’m naked, alone on top of a dune, following its perfectly carved crest in the clear, bluish moonlight. Why? Because it feels good, and I can. There aren’t many rules here.

    Bonjour Yannick
    J’étais inquiète de votre silence et je ne vous dis pas ce que j’ai imaginé.
    Chouette alors! vous êtes vivant et manifestement en harmonie avec la Vie.
    I Enjoy
    Marie

    Oh no! Not quite a sahara crossing… :) Not yet at least! It’s in the plans, but in a year or two. Let’s call this one a motivational jaunt into the desert for the actual expedition.

    Encore un autre beau paysage!!! Ton album photo commence a ressembler a un magazine de National Geographic!!! J’espere que tu n’as pas eu trop de sable dans la crac de fesse… tout nu dans le desert (it must be amazing!!).

    Bon annee scolaire qui commence et bonne chance dans tes futur projets!

    Enjoy it! It feels good to live outside of everyday life, doesn’t it? I hope it gives you the inspiration you need to push forward. Take a deep desert breath for me, I miss it!

    Yannick, encore une fois tu m’impressionnes. Tu es un excellent photographe, un homme intelligent, généreux et proche de la nature, un grand voyageur humanitaire, défenseur de la veuve et de l’orphelin et, aspect non-négligeable, beau bonhomme! Mais, as-tu au moins un défaut?
    Un seul?
    P.S. As-tu réussi à faire chanter la dune de sable ou si elle est restée muette devant tes belles fesses?
