Tell me a story. A story you can’t tell.


You know when you want to tell someone a story, but actually all you wish for is magically do the wand thing and have that someone – who I am telling the story to – witnessing it all? I don’t know how you are, but I am about a lot of hands moving, head nodding, goofy facing and onomatopoeic sounding.

These animals lovers. Still, no matter how good you are at using commas and question marks, a word (or 500) would never do the trick and teleport that someone in the middle of it.

In the middle of what?

The best things. The ones you didn’t catch on your iPhone. Or couldn’t anyway. One can only remember and smile. Ha! I bet you are smiling now. Ha. Now you are, for sure and that is the shit, ma friend!

These things (some can’t be told, others are waiting to be written, watch out!) got me here in OZ. In Paris. And now in Zabola, our destination. Usually it is about the journey (we stopped in Sinaia, at the Peles Castle), not the destination, I know. But sometimes, it’s the destination that makes you wonder (and wander) or loose yourself. In your own thoughts. That gets your eyes fixed into a point and the point is holding to your eyes and your eyes like it. It makes you fly away, fall into the deep and all that creep.

It’s the love, it’s the life, it’s the “best things” from above.

Talking about the Universe.

The universe, you say?

The universe, you say?

the universe is magic!

The universe is magic!

You don't think about it and then it just happens. That's the s*it!

You don’t think about it and then it just happens. That’s le s*it!

That’s le magic!

The way you make me feel. It is one of those "best things".

However, the things you can’t tell are the greatest and a smile is worth a 1000 words sometimes.

If only a smile could talk. Ah, these words lovers!

Fly Away. Lenny Says So.

Love to be on planes! I am looking around and I see people sleeping (not that comfy, but still sleeping at 8 pm), eating (without rushing or watching tv), reading (and no peeking on to telephones), talking to each other (not caring about postures, they just go deep into the conversation chairs) or staring through the windows at the beautiful sky, just take a moment and think.

At whatever. We all detach from our busy minds lives and without wanting to (I do, don’t know about you) are stranded in this piece of iron. Thousands of metres above. Literally.

Whereas it is something scary for some of us… My brother has to drink a shot of whiskey in order to help him forget about the Physics and start to be present in our conversation. I guess he should do that on the ground, too. It is something really fun for others. You can actually see a whistling smiley over here.

This is the time for me. For us. For a few hours it is just myself or us. No phone, no internet, no people, no I-should-be-doing-something-now-instead-of-having-this-much-fun, no worries about jobs, about anything. You are cut from your world for a short time and put into this up-in-the-air box along with red wine and good music in your headphones.

They say that planes are the most secure mean of transportation, so just go with the flow. Though I am sure you can think right now of, at least, one turbulence you’ve been through. Well, guess what! It is the most rare cause of plane crashes. Next time you are in one, just remember of this. Read it when you have the time. Or just trust me. You shouldn’t be afraid. Why should you? It’s not like you could actually do something about it, so you’d better just enjoy it. As a roller-coaster ride. Oh! Roller-coaster rides… Rides… Ride it with my surfboard. Surfboard.

It feels like a new beginning each time I land. Anywhere.

And then there are the hugs at landings. Either it’s you the one who is flying someone dear that you need to pick up, the tight hug at the aiport is so genuine that it becomes part of the whole flying experience. Listen.

To make it all complete, they even created a buzz called “airport style“. And articles entitled: “Steal airport style from your favourite celebs” or “See celebs’ best airport style post Oscars”. Just google it. Victoria Beckham seems to be the queen of that. The clothes, the attitude, the stroll and, of course, the big glasses. I do believe, though, she has some sweats and flip-flops in those Hermès’.

Next time you fly, try to do something you don’t have time for usually. Just think, go back to memories that make you smile, watch a movie, read a book, sleep. All of this without any phooooones! I hope they never make it possible to have network coverage on planes though I already heard something about it. Don’t even want to say it out loud.

Looking forward to the next story. Just landed.
