Attracting France

Even when there is an absence of the pursuit towards French things in my life, I find now that French things materialise in my experience, as if by magic. This should not surprise me as I am a firm believer in The Laws of Attraction.

In the course of my work day at the local library recently, an attractive man with an accent approached me to enquire about using the internet. He showed me his French passport. We had a little conversation comparing travel stories: my short visit to France last year; and his short visit now with his family. It is interesting to see your own country through the eyes of a first-time visitor. I wondered at the amazement he and his family would have going to somewhere like Uluru. He said he would love to go to the desert and also the Great Barrier Reef – maybe next time he hopes.

Later that day a woman asked me to help her find French language books. She was a visitor from Melbourne and wanted to practice her French language skills while on holiday from her French language class. We talked about our love of the French language and our lack of expertise.

I had ordered the purchase of the book Chocolate and Zucchini by Clotilde Dusoulier and it arrived for me. I have been reading her delightful blog and by chance came across the book of the same name in a local bookshop. I appreciate the way this young French woman has followed her own passion for food and cooking and turned her life towards the pursuit of this love.

It just goes to prove that what you think about will materialise and how easy it is to attract like-minded souls into your life. My passion for the elusive qualities associated with the French lifestyle transcends my Australian ways of living. Even when I feel my life is overshadowed with work, housework, social gatherings in an English-speaking community, Aussie rules football, traffic, drought, bushfires, and this hot Australian Summer, French stuff peaks in and reminds me of my passion.
