I decided to stop this blog, because I found a way one can read my french ones : Il y a de la vie après 70 et 2004 à Julie70.blogspot.com/ I juste added a translation button from Alta Vista and one can read it in different languages (if one wishes).

I live it a week more, then I just put everythin as draft, like the rest, souvenir.

alone or not ?

For all feeling alone today or even other days, here is a poem from
Prévert, french poet :

Morning Breakfast
He put the coffee
Into the cup
He put the
Into the cup of coffee
He put the sugar
Into the cafe au
With the little spoon
He stirred
He drank the coffee
And he
replaced the cup
Without speaking to me
He lit
A cigarette
He made
With the smoke
He put the ashes
Into the ashtray
speaking to me
Without looking to me
He stood up
He put
His hat upon
his head
He put
His raincoat on
Because it was raining
And he
Without one word
And me I placed
My head in my hand
And I

He did feel even more alone after not being completly so.
So, alone, is not so bad after all !

I have a lot to learn

I have been there in the micro-computer revolution, from 1980 on, as head of a start-up company and passionate about Apple II and everything about it, its openess and people around, after the successive Mac's and bringing in France products complementing it (image, page layout, video, etc) from USA.

I feel the blogging is a little (a lot in fact) like HyperCard of Bill Atkinson wanted to be, and was at the beginning - until Apple did not take it out of the free bandwagon. Easy to use, easy to change at your taste, free share of buttons and designs. I wrote a book about it (french bestseller) so everyone knows how to "hypercard and hypertalk".

Now, I have to learn to blog. Biz Stone's two books will help me a lot to begin, but you all could too. For example, I do not understand yet how to put pictures side by side, how to decide where to show text, longer ones, and where pictures from my digital camera. But I already feel, blogging will become a passion soon, as digital photography has this year (more then ten thousand photos, some really neat).

Yes, life is wonderfull even after I got 70.
