5 Things I Learned in France

1. A change in landscape is always the best start to a change in perspective. Especially when the landscape looks like this:

Mittlemeer

2. The benefits of virtual connectedness are over-rated. Along those lines: literally connected people do not get the desire to literally disconnect from this virtual world. This is more frustrating than you can imagine.

3. There’s nothing a small glass of wine and a chocolate-chip cookie can’t make better.

4. The most amazing thing a friend can do is simply be there.

5. It’s not easy to forget yourself nor to reinvent yourself, but to better yourself is golden.
