Colors of Automn

Greetings from Bures-France! We are almost in November, but the temperatures are still “spring-like! However, daytimes are shorter and shorter, and the Fall colors are there!

It is the time of the year I dislike the most, although I love the colors around me… It had always been the same since I was a child. Why: I don’t know!

Anyway, here are some photos taken in my garden. Because of the weather, we still have vegetables and some flowers, but less and less each day:

Last week end, we visited the “Château de Courson” not fare from home ( We like this domain very much, as it has something to offer during all the seasons… Here are some photos:

Georgous photos of the sky:

My thoughts are going to the team at St Antoine Hospital and in particular my fantastic graft doctor: if I can “enjoy” life those days it is because they saved me!( I don’t meet them very often and I miss them so much). Of course, I don’t forget my family and my donor! I love them all!

My artistic year!

My artistic year!

Greetings from Bures-France! Today, I would like to share with you what I have been doing during the year (June 2021- October 2022) as “an artist”…

I have been involved in a class of “modeling”, where we try to build, using clay, “objects” we can choose ourselves, as long as it is doable. Here it is a selection of what I made:

I have also been working in a stained glass class. Again, it was up to me to choose my subjects, which is cool! Over the year, I worked on classical stained glass (lead stained glass), on Tiffany style stained glass, and recently on “fusing”. Here is what I have done so fare:

My goal, in the long term, is to be able to make by modeling and stained glass, a Saint Antoine statue and a stained glass :-)! Of course, you are now aware of “my love ” for Saint Antoine ;-)! If I can do my “artistic projects”, it is because I was saved 6 years ago by the fantastic team of the Hematology Department at Saint Antoine Hospital, an in particular by my fantastic graft doctor! With my family, friends, and stem cells donor, they have given me the gift of “a second life”! I love them all!
