  • Subscription is the new black

    I don’t know about you, but I am starting to feel subscription fatigue. There’s a limit to how many I can add to my credit card.

  • Protein Spotlight gets its comic strip

    Last year, Vivienne approached me with the project of adapting a collection of Protein Spotlight articles into comic strips, both in English and French versions. The Geneva-based cartoonist aloys lolo was to create them on a monthly basis and eventually publish a book as well as set of posters. Could these comics be easily adapted into Protein Spotlight’s existing website?

  • All skies and water

    Back from a few days off sailing and sleeping on our boat around Nyon, Allamand, Thonon-les-Bains and back.

  • Time to party

    After weeks of uncertainty, followed by the announcement that the June exams were cancelled, her Collège Director decided to organise a graduation ceremony on Monday, June 22nd to close the 4 years leading up to the Maturité fédérale, the Swiss public high school’s diploma giving students access to the universities and polytechnic schools, in Switzerland and abroad.

  • Week #8 of semi confinement

    It’s almost 2 months now since the semi confinement was ordered, and this Monday will see most of the businesses return to our new normal.

  • Week #7 of semi confinement

    There were long queues at the garden centres and DIY last Monday. Mathias popped down to the Migros Brico to stock up on wood for his frames and noticed that most of the people were buying plants and flowers. Flashes of colours and smiling faces.

  • Week #6 of semi confinement

    I feel I’m loosing track of time, or at the least that my perception of time varies throughout the day and the week. March feels ages ago, just like the beginning of the week does, but the day flies by so fast. We’ve reached 6 weeks of semi confinement.

  • A Brave New World

    How will things be after this strange new normal? Is there a chance that our economic system and values will change after this world crisis? Will our daily lives be transformed? Can the world be rebuilt differently and yield a more humane economy?

  • Week #4 of semi confinement

    Easter break. We are slowly reaching our first month of semi confinement. We have grown accustomed to living all four of us together, and are enjoying it. Mathias and Emma are happy to spend more time together, like when we all go on holiday together. I love having all my family around me.

  • Week #3 of semi confinement

    We have reached the end of our third weeks of semi confinement, and things are going rather well for us.
