All I Want for Christmas

Smiling reflections in La Géode, Parc de la Villette, Paris, a geodesic dome with Imax theater, inspired by Buckminster Fuller’s Biosphere design for Montreal’s Expo ’67 World’s FairProfesseur NimbusThis morning my son and I attended a private screening of Space Explorers a Franco-Chinese series of animated shorts about creative initiates to preserve our environment, directed by Hélène Guétary and released in sync with COP21. Very inspiring! Coral nurseries, urban gardens, renewable energies, protected species, reforestation…all over the globe. Two shorts will be shown before all the big features at the Geode, one of my favorite destinations. Don’t miss it! Now that I’ve met Laurent Dondé, artistic director, I understand why it’s such an enlightened place. If you’re notin Paris, check them out on Youtube:

imageSunday is round two of the regional elections in France. I’m imagining a big turn out to  elect good people for our regional councils and governors, who in turn elect senators…Thank you Paris and Île de France, for not voting Front National. I continue to believe there has to be a way to protect our citizens and our humanitarian values.

Making deviled quail eggs with red caviar and fresh dill for a winter brunch tomorrow. When they’re done, will try to photograph and write out the recipe. Very work-intensive, but worth it!

Please send good vibes for the elections.

Love, xxx Aliss
