Le jour du sabbat

Le jour du sabbat

Based on the events of the previous day, I decided that I needed a good night of sleep before I lose my mind or else. We slept in and woke up in the afternoon, refreshed and hungry. We dressed and when from some croissants et tarte au pomme. We took the tram to “Royale” and walked around and took plenty of pictures. We went around in few circles before we found the African expo and when we finally found it, we realized that we were low on Euros to spend. The expo had beautiful things made avec les pagnes africaines and I love it all. I met a 17 years old designer and I bought a necklace from her to support her craft. We had lunch in a basement restaurant, a cave, with dimmed lights and interesting meat. There was frog, hare, horse steak, bien sure, escargot. I ordered sausage and bacon and my friend ordered pork chops both served with homestyle mashed potatoes with carrots mashed together. It was delicious and eventually, I will try escargot but I do not know how I feel about trying cuisse de lapin. After that we walked around, enjoying the evening scene in Brussels. We are officially doing well with the transporation in Belgique and this is all thanks to the great system they have in place here in Brussels. We met a Russian student at a beauty shop and he was trying to sell us a luxury facial exfoliant for 60 Euros and we ended up laughing and hanging out with him for like half an hour.He was going to show us around the beer scene in the area but decided again it, probably because we didn’t buy his products and we also told him he was too young…He are in our mid-twenties so anything above that line is suddenly to young (ha ha). But seriously, in the line of friendship all ages are welcome. We would have loved to hang out with Bob (he liked the nickname) and his product was great. We ended the day at McDonalds, which I didn’t eat. I am saving that for Paris!

The me inside of me

The me inside of me

Laughter.

This is a beautiful story.

Food.

We cooked and we ate it too.

The restaurant was excellent, I devoured my plate.

Sisters.

I have two sisters from my parents.

More sisters came and settled in my heart.

I am a sister to all the girls who sit down to talk.

Nature.

The earth humbles me.

I meet myself in nature.

The sunshine conquers my heart.

I hug trees to share their energy.

Love.

I am loving.

I am lovable.

Kisses on the forehead.

Lip balm from my lips to his.

More love sharing with all the people in my life.

Kindness.

It is a daily practice.

We smile to acknowledge our similarities.

We accept our elusive differences.

There is kindness everywhere.

A stranger who sees your tears and hands you tissue.

My friend spent five hours with me in my heartbreak.

Travel.

I have a deep desire to experience new cultures.

I drool over food I’ve never tasted.

My past lives are calling me where I’ve lived before.

I feel languages I’ve yet to learn in my heart.

My life is a grand adventure of joy and discovery.

So many places to see, strangers to befriend, food to devour.

The excitement of new first times.

Art.

Painting colors on acrylic paper.

Writing words on my hands in an emotional meltdown.

Drawing my wounds in words that soothe.

Putting clothes on my body to reflect my mood.

Singing out loud to drown my sorrows.

Creating a new way to cope with uncertainty.

Cooking a meal with my heart.

Pairing words with pictures.

Brothers.

I have two from my parents.

One was my only sibling at one time.

The other is my youngest sibling.

I pray for both to only know women who they can truly love.

They are gentle like boys with kind mothers.

We laugh and make jokes when we are home.

Boys who sit to talk are my brothers.

We share stories and advice.

My mother has two brothers whom I call uncles.

Beauty.

I wear it daily.

It smiles confidently.

It radiates from my heart.

The clothes I honor with body with.

I breathe in positive affirmations.

I respect my humanity and all humanity.

I treat myself with kindness and reverence.

My body wears me well all day.

My hands touch my feet with love.

I feed my heart and soul with sustenance.
