I love my new boots, they can brave the cold and the rain or snow in Northern lands and remain as stylish as can be! I have not tried the sand yet but shall sure do too! Fashion has tended to go towards very flat and skinny shoes over the past several years…and while I love stylistic progress I have to say my preferece goes for clothing that also stands the test of both time and style. Luxury that makes YOU feel like a luxury too….. Strong sole, soft on every step…..nothing like that to feel strong and powerful all day long through the city streets. Nothing like a shoe that simply doesn’t slide on slipery grounds. My philosophy is simple: value your life first, not the world’s judgement of it. Thank you true luxury, thank you Tods.
it seems your new boots has the wings… you can fly! you can fly! you can fly! waiting for the pic of your super tods!
quality is the most important… simple is the best… less is more…
fashion is yourself!
I will post a picture of them IN ACTION! For sure!
tks olivier! pls say hi! to them till then!
I just did! They’re delighted!
it’s a great honor for me!
Hahahaha! They’re just boots! LOLOLOLOL
hahaha! special boots! lol
Great, would love to see them
Did you post a photo of the boots yet?
Exactly Sayo – well said re: Olivier’s new wings – simple is best…less is more….hope you are having a wing-ful day yourself
You girls are SPOT ON with my current stream of thought!
good resonance is infectious ♪
Good art is resonance of the heart
ART is HeART. can you HeAR the He-ART-Beat!?
Yes I can
Here we go ♪
tks for the resonance, and the same for you, lynda! wing-ful!
your welcome & thank you sayo ….yes, my wings are always (ALL-WAYS) flying, or ready to fly – lol ….soon I will fly out & see what adventure lies ahead today
lift up, lift up…!
Olivier, I like what you wrote today – foot comfort & sturdiness – you can’t beat it & I really relate to it because I have very narrow feet – AA or AAA, as well as having a long foot lol , so shoes have always been hard to get in my size. I ”envy” you (in a good way, ofcourse) that you have shoes that fit well & feel that way. I am also happy for anyone who has the basic B easy size LOL . Anyway, look forward to seeing them on you, and where they took you lol .
You will see both! I actually feel these are great boots to go on stage, they are more roots…
Wonderful!! …..feeling that way (about these boots) will only enhance your performance!!!!…..the feet are connected to the roots of the earth, if your feet are uncomfortable, it throws off the rest, as well. I love stylish shoes, and some people are slave’s to fashion, but I like to wear the best of both worlds – you can be sylishl AND comfortable, as you are in these boots . Glad you found a pair you enjoy!
You have to feel stylishly comfortable Best of both world indeed!
…AND, ofcourse, can’t wait to see you in those awesome boots ……well, my computer is acting up (need’s a tune up lol). Hope you have a SUPER, WING-FILLED-Flowing/Flying kind of day!
Olivier RE: ”Good art is resonance of the heart.” – Oh yes, absolutely!!!- love that, feel that, know that – but love your wording & expression of it – as always . I will write that on my wall of inspirations next to my laptop
I’m going to sing live this year, with friends and also in concerts and club settings, this is the best way to connect your heart, through expression as you describe! Needless to say all will be reported live on here!
FANTASTIC OLIVIER!!!!…..I’m so happy & thrilled for you ….and also excited & can’t wait to see it all – YAY!!! ……you must tell us & share everything. Your dream (s) are here NOW …blessings always!!
I live the dream I foresee myself to live the day before, each day ahead….and it never fails Growth is always adding Something new
BTW I’m not sure why – but many times when I try to reply directly to a certain comment -.I can’t – it’s all fuzzy & only allows the comment to appear at the end of ALL the comments??!? – which is why many times, I add the comment to my reply, or the name . Just an FYI, not sure anything can be done about it – unless I am doing something incorrectly?! – vry possible lol
Olivier, I’m soo excited & wanted to share this with you, because I think you will understand my joy. 1st, I was rushing today, jumped online for a minute, saw comment w/ your exciting news – Wow!! – but had no time to comment back. After my appt., I went to the cafe’ – book & pen w/ me again – altho I was not really feeling particularly inspired, nor had the urge to write anything, but I lay them both down on the table w/ my coffee & cake. As I enjoyed my dessert, I gazed in the air – thinking all the while, as usual lol – and BOOM – you, your music, your photos, your story – came into my mind once again. I starting writing & writing, until I actually completed a full poem/or song (I’m still not sure where I am going with these pieces, but recently, you are definitely my inspiration . Anyway, it was done within an hour. I left to visit a friend at a nearby store. Then went to my car & sat in it – and revised, sang & read what I had written in the cafe’ & couldn’t wait to get home to type it all up. So, THANK U OLIVIER, THANK U, THANK U, THANK U!!! – you truly are an inspiration to me. I feel really proud & excited about this one, & I think I am lovin’ this cafe’ writing thing – even though it’s so crowded & noisy. Well, I just wanted to share this w/ you. HAVE A WONDERFUL, INCREDIBLE – ”BREATHING” & BREATHTAKING – KIND OF NIGHT – lol !!!
What a beautiful story! I am so utterly moved, uplifted from this. andet me tell you, inspiration will never stop growing
Yes, Sayo – as you say – ”lift up, lift up!” – I certainly will…..once you grow wings, you must use them – yes?!…and FLY! lol …we lift up together – ALL ! . Have an ”uplifting” night
yes, we have the special wings! lift up, lift up & fly high ♪
higher & higher!
Thank you Olivier, I’m glad you liked my story…and yes, the good vibes are felt, and here, and will continue, as will the inspiration for all, I’m sure. And I know, and understand, the concept of ”less is more” – but, I’m a Sagittarian – I can’t help myself ahha
Olivier, I had a problem trying to respond directly to this message above, so I’m entering my comment here – RE: ”I live the dream I foresee myself to live the day before, each day ahead….and it never fails Growth is always adding Something new ” OB – As usual, I agree, Growth on many levels has always been a huge part of my life – whether I’m working on growing – or just happening thru life’s experiences – LIFE is GROWTH, if our eyes, mind & heart are open!! I help other’s grow, part of what I do – and actually, always did in my life, no matter what….I love people, and the more one understands, the wiser they become, and therefore happier! – and I LOVE to see people happy, and to know happy people . Have a HAPPY Night lol …..oh, and I love the imagery of what you expressed about foreseeing yourself living the day before, each day ahead. And, I’m not sure this is the same thing (altho, part of what I do- is foreseeing ….but I always send pink light ahead of me, and to all, & I think/ask that my Higher Self will meet the other person’s Higher Self (whoever they may be), so that the conversation, or interaction, etc. – will be between our Higher Selves, and not stuck in any of the, sometimes, murkiness of human issues. Not sure I really explained that well today, but I’ve read alot today & I’m tired. Ok, byee
Yes, Sayo, we have ”special wings” to lift up & up, and fly high, my friend……see you up there . Have an uplifting night
wings… we say it ” tsubasa ” in japanese. tks lynda, have an uplifting weekend!
Arigato Sayo …..so then ’tenshi tsubasa’ would be ’angel wings’…?
doh itashi mashite, lynda! yes, tenshi = angel! and we say it ” tenshi no tsubasa ” !
Oh, okay, thank you – great!
we have tenshi no tubasa!
Indeed!! (btw what does the ”no” in between mean ”with”…as in – angels with wings??
” no ” means ” of ” , so it’s the same as wings of angels
Thank you Sayo, now if I am pronouncing it correctly, that would be great lol . Actually, when I was in Greece some years ago, the word ”no” was the hardest word for me to say, because we don’t have that particular sound here (I finally go it tho). I know some basics of Greek – 20-30 words – altho, not being around it, I am forgetting haha. But, as we spoke of before – love languages
doh itashi mashite, lynda! i know japanese is so unique language for you. greek? sounds interesting! it must be hard…! but sure i’m interested in it as other ones. learning languages is fun! sure i love
Yes, Sayo, language is interesting indeed. But, I’d like to share w/ you too – life is exciting. I have been writing like crazy – I have 18 completed poems. They all just flew out of me like magic…flow, flow & flowing! There are 2 poems that I believe are meant to be songs, and I will adjust the words/lyrics accordingly. I have a good friend (s) in music that may write the music to my lyrics – I’m looking into it. It’s so funny, because I NEVER had any thought, or intention, of writing a song – yet, as the words to 2 poems flew out, I found myself wriitng ”chorus” at different intervals. AND, I was also just invited to an Event – called the ”Songwriters Circle” – held in March, by an old acquaintance – a man who I knew manyyyy years ago. LOL, there are no coincidences – right?! . I was just planning on writing a book, but so many other things are extending from those beginnings – very exciting!! And, I owe alot to Olivier, who is such an inspiration!! You too . I need to get online more, so I don’t have so much catching up to do haha. Thank you for your generous spirit. Have a great day!
poem!? i like it! sounds interesting! good luck for all your poems and books! right, @Olivier is a big inspiration for us! and me? oh, thanks a lot… so nice to hear it from you! thank you, lynda, have a great day & week!
Thank you …actually, the 2 poems that I feel could be songs were inspired by exchanges with Olivier on this site & some of the things he shares here about his days….YES, @Olivier is ABSOLUTELY a Great Inspiration!!!
really? nice! @Olivier always gives us ” hints ” and ” keys ” to us. or ” homework ” like a teacher for us, students!? lol
Yes, he does …….always keys, inspiring………:)
Hahaha I am so glad to hear this!!
it’s true! thank you always, Mr.Bassil!
Indeed it is true!!!!
I think many on this site have ’angel wings’ – yes Sayo?!…..I know you do, and, ofcourse, Olivier, too! Have a wonderful weekend, as well! ….- it might snow here today, so must get out before it hits lol Sayōnara (I only know a few words, but was responding in kind
truly yes! you lynda and of course @Olivier, too! snow? it looks so cold…! pls don’t frozen your wings! tks, have a nice week! my name is ” sayo ” but not means good-bye, pls don’t worry!
Yes, Sayo, so wonderful to be connected to such incredible angels of light here, like you & Olivier (& Ewa too). It didn’t snow badly that day, which was good (although, I love snow @ other times – for it’s beauty & all). I haven’t had time to search around this site to see, or hear, all the great things that are posted here. I feel I’m probably missing alot, but I’ve been in a constant state/flow of ”writing” – well, mostly haha. Have a great night! .
you too, lynda! thank you for connecting! have a great night, great winter time, and happy st.valentine’s day!
Same to you Sayo …..enjoy some chocolate . The husband, of a good friend of mine, is out of town (he’s an Opera Singer), so she’s having a Valentine’s Day Party, combined with a celebration for the Chinese New Year (& year of the Dragon) – creative family lol – we all create & add to the fun, and talk alot about the subjects similar to this site – art, music, metaphysical things, angels, universal connected-ness – u know, etc…..it will be great fun, I’m sure .
Oh, and I really must try to get on this site more, so I can see the great photos, Olivier’s writings, and the great music you & he, and others put on here,etc…I need more time lol – as we all do, I’m sure :). Have a super day!
A great personal tip of mine about time: waking up at the same regular very early (if possible) time every day, and planning for a set time to start being productive daily, this frees up so much time later in the day…
the rhythm is important in your life! it makes you healthy, creative and happy! you have such a great rhythm, olivier ♪
Yes, rhythm of the day, and rhythm of each song I work on every day!
be rhythmist ♪
Fascinating how rhythms can change in an instant . Do you find that true, too, Olivier? I know when I am writing – especially in the cafe – I may have to start 3 different sections (well, usually, atleast 2) – because certain things bring me to a whole other idea/subject/feeling to write about, etc…ya know what I mean ?
I agree… We often have several emotions at the same time, and writing is about finding the strongest and truest emotion to let it come out first and foremost
Yes, Olivier, I agree with you as always. One of my poems actually mentions how the different subjects/thoughts, each ”fight” – so to speak – to find a way to be expressed. And, sometimes I start writing from 1 thought, but it leads into a totally different poem and expression from where I started – the flow – it will go where it will go, when we let it flow!
I’ll share with you a quote I love: ”All meditative techniques are a help to destroy the false. They don’t give you the real – the real cannot be given. That which can be given is not real. This real, you have got already, just the false has to be taken away.” – OSHO. YOU do a great job at being REAL,you’ve helped us take away the false, adn to SEE the REAL, so THANK YOU Olivier. The flow is real……:)
Thank you My greatest aspiration is to be real, to be myself, my best self, every single day!
I feel that quality, aspiration, from you, that’s one of the greatest things/qualities about you – your realness – yet always with positivity and coming from the heart, sincere – which shows us your rich soul, your brilliant mind, and your kind heart….you give us so much, yet I’m not sure you even know it – and that’s perfectly ok . Bestest vibes always – family forever
When I mentioned that I sometimes have to start 3 separate sections, I meant in the book that I carry with me, to write in. Last week, I ran in for a sweet, and did not bring my book with me that day, thinking I would be running around too much…but BOOM…..thoughts & words came flying thru my mind, and I had to get to a nearby store quickly to buy a pad to write on (now I keep an extra notebook in my car – haha). Anyway, I ended up writing 3 poems that day, and one had something to do with me not having my book, or paper, available to me to write on when the intense need to write came over me . And the 2 poems that I felt may be songs, all had to do with you as my inspiration (one even has a French word, that is repeated, in the chorus – and, you are a continual inspiration – I’m sure to all! Keep being you, dear Olivier. Thank you again for all you are, and for all you have given
Fascinating! I was actually thinking of using a few French words in one of my upcoming songs
Wow, more synchronicity…..in sync .! I cant wait to hear more of your music, your voice, your songs (& French – yes – I know it is all getting closer & closer…..I’m so excited for you, and for all of us to hear you, and to have shared, & been a little part of your incredible journey!!
tks again, lynda! did u enjoy chocolates? it seems you have good friends! i can imagine you enjoy the interesting topics… good conversations make your life happier! yes, here you can! have a super day, you 2!
@olivier were you, in fact, in the northern lands?
In my own perspective yes! I’ve been in Paris on business meetings for the music which have been totally insightful and uplifting for the future
haha was wondering if you had been up in Scandinavia. Sounds great though!
Hahaha, coming from the South, anything a few hours up looks Northern
very true! I call upstate NY The North Country, but really, our version of Scandinavia here is of course Canada!
I cannot wait to visit upstate NY
It has many beautiful places for sure.
I won’t be far from there soon, can’t wait!
yeessss i know and can’t wait to listening ur songs & watch ur concert soon lol
Thank you ! I cannot wait either and getting closer and closer!
indeeeeeeed and good news from me in butterworth.i’ve trips to europa soon
You will be in NY soon?!….that’s wonderful Olivier!!!…how exciting!!!….wow
Yes, Sayo, I enjoyed alot of chocolate & good food & conversation …and yes, this family (my friends) are very good, & creative people. You’re right, too, I know many people, but I now choose only to share my time, talk, or internet with like-minded souls like all of us here – generally speaking, I mean – because there are also lovely people to meet out in the world, just going about the day – u know?! – it makes life interesting to be open to the moment – and I am . I spend alot of time alone, as well. Hope you had fun & chocolates too!
good food, good conversations and good friends, they make our life happier! tks for your wish, lynda!
yes, you ar right, ofcourse, thanks Sayo
love it, Lynda!
