Everything we are doing on a daily basis is fast . “I  have to get up quick, get dressed, run for the next bus or the metro, do the job quick, eat fast (and most of the time fast food)  go back home fast, exercise quickly…” It is like everything is a case of urgency, especially if you live in a big city, as if everything in life is a task to be completed !  FAST FAST FAST .

Saluting the sun!

After months of grey weather and rain, we finally have some sunshine and breeze in Paris and this is definitely something to salute! Paris looks much more beautiful with the sunshine and life is more beautiful when you wake up to the beautiful energizing sunshine…

The sun is the primary source of life and energy for this planet. It has represented Power, Strength, Energy, Force, Clarity, consciousness, self illumination and growth in many different cultures. Without the Sun, there will be no life on Earth. The sun exists in everything we eat, drink and  breathe. It is no wonder that when one is in tune with the cycles of the sun, they have the energy, health, well-being, vitality, and longevity.
