Artistic work!

Artistic work!

Recently, I started slowly to remove myself from the lab. I am still an “emeritus researcher”, but I don’t go so often to the lab, maybe once a week in average. To help me in this detox process, I am focusing on artistic work: modeling, stained glass, fusing…

Using the fusing glass approach, I made several night lights:

I am so happy with the results that I am thinking of making mass production and selling of night lights :-)!

I had also the oportunity to continue working on stained glass, both lead and Tiffany. Some of my productions are now in remote places over the World, Toronto and Boulder. 🙂

My last hobby is modeling. One of my last project was to make a Saint Antoine statue by myself: I am happy with the results :-)!

Thank’s to Arielle, Tatiana and Edouard, my teachers!

Beside, those fantastic teachers, there are also other “students”: I really enjoy being part of these new communities!

I would like to thank the great team of doctors and nurses from the Saint Antoine Hospital Hematology, and in particular my wonderful graft doctor: I dedicate my “artistic work” to them (I don’t forget my family, friend s and my stem cells donor!).

With love!

Spring is here!

Spring is here!

Coming back from “the winter” in Toronto and Boulder, I find out that the Spring was definitively there in my garden!It was good to see the green and colors everywhere!

Here are some photos taken around my garden:

A small cherry tree coming from my parents garden, which travelled a lot before reaching its place now in my garden… (montmorency cherry tree).

I have pretty sick since a few days high fever, running noze,…), so I could not work in the garden… I made cookies instead!

I would like to share those colorful photos with my family, my friends, and also with the people at Saint Antoine Hospital Hematology Department and in particular my great graft doctor: everywhere I go, they are traveling with me! With love…



Greetings from Bures-France! March was the time for a visit to our family in Toronto, as well as meeting our friends in Boulder. We spent around 3 weeks in North America. We went from a spring-like weather in France to a winter-like weather in Toronto and Boulder (below zero temperatures and snow!).

Here are some photos taken during our trip.

First Toronto:

Then Boulder-Colorado:

Going back to Boulder remembers me how lucky I have been when I came back home in December 2015. A few months later I had to have the stem cells transplant at Saint Antoine hospital. People there saved my life! Thank you all and in particular my great graft doctor! I love you all!

During our visit to our family in Toronto, I had the chance to participate with my daughter to a “science presentation” at the daycare my grand-son is attending: bubbles and colors!

I am looking forward to our next visit to Toronto: I miss them so much…
