With the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon,
and the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau
Our Ambassador of the Canadian Mission to the United Nations, Marc-André Blanchard, organized a soirée on 15 November, 2016 where I met great people. Thank you Mr. Ambassador for such an initiative to invite Canadian Nationals working at the United Nations.
Mark Nepo writes in ''The One Life We're Given'': ''that nothing compares to the sensation of being alive in the company of another. That being completely who we are while in the company of other life is noble work that connects us to God.'' And I would add ...''in the company of true friends''
When I arrived in New York on the 24 May in 2009, with my clothes and my artwork, my heart was filled with the hope that I would find my way. I was letting go of the past to build a new life, a leap into the unknown!
Spring is in the air: ''Our journey to love...for though we stubbornly cling, believing in our moment of hunger that there is no other possibility of love, we only have to let go of what we want so badly and our life will unfold. For love is everywhere" Mark Nepo from The Book of Awakening.
I was inspired to create ''La vie en rose à Manhattan'' because it's a new beginning for me after going through a great many hurdles in the past few years. It's about hope, it's about seeing life from a different perspective and I find that time can heal the wounds from the heart for new beginnings.
