Today I met a fine young man

Today I met a fine young man. I was seeing him for the first time. He invited me to a coffee and we talked about many things : weddings and wedding planning, creativity, photography, theatre, aging women, career paths and life choices, beliefs, multiculturalism, Sydney, Asia, Europe and the future of this world... just the kind of conversation I like. Then he left. At the moment he must be on a plane, flying home. Why am I telling you this? Because many of you know him, or have heard of him: he's Edwin, author of Kuala Lumpur Daily Photo and also talented actor, writer, director, photographer and producer. Thanks Edwin for this lovely moment. Have a safe flight home.

Aujourd'hui j'avais rendez-vous avec un jeune homme que je n'avais jamais vu. Il m'a invitée à prendre un café et nous avons parlé de beaucoup de choses : de mariage et de préparatifs de mariage, de créativité, de théatre et de photographie, des femmes vieillissantes, de choix de carrière ou de vie, de croyances, du multiculturalisme, de Sydney, de l'Asie et de l'Europe, de l'avenir de cette planète... tout à fait le genre de conversation que j'aime. Et puis il est parti. A l'heure qu'il est, il doit être dans l'avion en train de rentrer chez lui. Pourquoi je vous raconte ça ? Parce que beaucoup d'entre vous le connaissent, ou plutôt ont entendu parler de lui : c'est Edwin, auteur de Kuala Lumpur Daily Photo mais aussi talentueux acteur, metteur scène, producteur et photographe. Merci Edwin pour ce bon moment. Je te souhaite bon retour !

Nice to hear about you meeting Edwin -- any you've met Sally -- that's at least two more DP bloggers than me -- but we meet evryone online which is the next best thing.

C'est bien que vous ayez pu voir voir. Qui sait, il aura peut-être un jour un copain qui se mariera en France?

I think :)

Edwin's a very interesting man indeed. Met him in Singapore when he came to visit the Singapore DPs. :-)

Nathalie, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't want to hear such nice things about themselves....what wonderful observations!
Those clouds in your photo almost appear to have wings of their own.

I love the shot. I love it thinking that when you published it you had in mind someone who was flying... Really delicate.

Oh Nathalie... It was all I wished it would be. Thank you so much. The meeting with you capped off a very memorable holiday.

ps. yes pod, I 'bonjoured' her on your behalf :)

Gerald, you're right. We meet online and that is joy enough.

Keropok, you're quite interesting too you know!
