With less than a week until I’m back in France, I’ve been thinking. When I was in Auvers, my principle goal was to experience life in France, soak up the culture, the food, the art and do some writing, which I did. I halfheartedly pursued a few whims (ie: tried to learn French, considered writing a book, getting a job, finding a rich husband with property in France), but I lacked focus. As a result, all I got out of it was knowledge and experience, which has little currency in today’s world.
This time around, it’s going to be different. Now that I’m going to be in France long term, I need a long term goal. I need to wholeheartedly pursue something substantial. Something life-changing. Something that’s evident not only from the inside, but also externally, for all the world to see. None of this vague stuff. It’s got to be specific and it has to be etched in stone (or blog) or I’ll get distracted.
After a great deal of research and thought, taking my skills, interests and location into consideration, I’ve found a new raison d’etre that I can pursue wholeheartedly. I’ll be stalking Johnny Depp. He lives a mere 20 minutes from Vidauban, so it will be very convenient. I can’t wait to get started.
So, in addition to continuing this blog, my new blog, Stalking Johnny Depp will chronicle my efforts. Please check it out, subscribe, share, link and like.
