39 years. Exactly 39 years ago I was in Nice for the first time, and now for the second time. 39 years later.
I was 19 and worked as an au pair girl in a family with 2 children. For half a year. Over winter. Important six months: I was alone and started to draw. And loved the ocean. And the palm trees.
Every day I walked down Boulevard Gambetta to the beach. 39 years ago. How did I love that. Nice still smells the same as it did back then.
I remember: the seagulls, the pebbles on the beach, the sound they make, wave up, wave down, wave up, wave down.
I used to sit there every day. Lonely but happy. observing. writing. drawing. Absorbing.
I think a lot started there.
