Welcome!

You have just landed on a website fruit of an experiment starting in science and finishing with poetry.

In 2016, I was running between the lab an the office, writing articles and coaching students. What a stressful life is the one of a scientist in academia! I am not alone saying this and the choir is crowded (ref. X, Y, Z). Thankfully there are many ways you can handle stress, once you recognise it.

One way to fight stress is poetry. Writing and reading poetry has ben proven to be more mindful and certainly makes you feel better. Studies has shown these positive effects (ref. A, B, C). I started posting short writing images of nature daily to this blog, that has become like a diary. Most of the writings will soon be included in a book while photos are all still available for you to enjoy. This activity has stimulated my creativity as you can see here, here, here, and here.

If you want to start writing and mentally escape the lab too, but don’t know where to start, check this strategy. I hope you’ll want to keep in touch and please leave me a message to share experiences an collaborate!

Photo story

One click is one situation
I wish to remember and store.
Digital data take on the value
Of vibrant feelings and dear persons
Condensed in a limited second.
No more foggy memories and personal additions
To the story.

Adventure ready

The rays of the early day
And the sweet smell of the morning
Are the perfect sense to the adventure
I am starting alone.
The Luggage is full at the door
And the diary has white pages left.

End of the day

A shoeless child runs through the fields
In a day that holds no promise.
Clouds are unwillingly gathering
And the green is starting to vanish.
My day reached its end
With few praises and many promises.
I know it is only for today
But this empty feeling cannot be stopped.
