Life is circumstantial

Voilà, 2015 started. The magical year I will turn 50. Half a century. Un demi siècle. Time to make a balance. To look for new opportunities. Because life is growth. I decided to rename my blog temporarily. 2015: L’année de mes 50 ans.


This first of January passed in a haze. The realisation that life is circumstantial. A decision can make a difference. So can a second. Being somewhere you were not supposed to be You cannot control all, but you can work on those circumstances. No more detours. Go straight where you need to be. Stop pleasing able bodied adults who can take public transport.

We are now April 2016. This long I have neglected my blog. My last post dates from January 2014… I don’t know why. That 31st of December 2014 I had a car accident. A fraction of a second later, and the other party would have hit me at a fairly high speed in my door in stead of on the front wheel. It was very circumstantial, because I was not supposed to be there for many reasons. I am still in my 50th year. Today I am posting this backdated. To remind me that life is circumstantial.


About Claire

As an eternal traveler and restless soul, I am always searching for ways to design my life. I have lived and worked in 7 different countries, and traveled to many more. Discovering new places, new people is what I love. My favourite thing is checking out local supermarkets for food products, have a taste of the local cuisine, and look at the arts & crafts shops. Of course a bit of sightseeing (historical, cultural, pure design, artistic,...) is a must too. Inspired to work with semi-precious metals, wood and other recycled materials, I have turned my creative energies towards craft based design, setting up a home and workshop in the countryside. Appropriately, My name means Hope. "Hope is the dream of a soul awake" is the personal statement. With Eternal Traveler - Design your life! I aspire to create a creative environment for functional art and life design. And with this reach out to like minded people.
