Happy father’s day dad, my Dalaï Lama.


A father is so important for a girl. She will often search his image in the one she will fall in love with. 

Away from my family I can not say eye to eye "I love you dad". The only thing I can do to tell him is to be happy and show that I am well surrounded and protected. I could hardly have done better by telling him that I would spend the weekend photographing the Dalai Lama.

Since I'm kid my father keeps telling me to marry to a rich man. I never understood why. To me, depend on one individual is an invisible prison that cuts any energetic source of creative flow. I want to depend of myself and the world, through each person I will meet on the road.

However I know that holding the hand of someone you love, both willing to walk in the same direction can feel wonderful. I wanted to walk by myself those past three 3 years to rediscover where I wanted to go.  I met an infinite rainbow of possibilities. Today I still dont' know where the surprises of life will lead me and why pretending to know or trying to control it? 

I can only hope to get the chance to hold a hand again to illuminate even more the mysterious journey of life. But if this hand doesn't reach me, I will certainly wish to learn to embrace the world from that Love that the Dalai Lama talks so well about.
