Stillness versus chaos
Ten minutes later...
Doubtful there will be any snow this winter... My iPhone doesn't agree though.

Albertine Café in Publier
Santa with the Flottins arrived in Evian yesterday evening which made it impossible to find a parking spot. H and I landed in Publier at Albertine Café for our usual Friday evening drink.
The place was a nice surprise with live impro. jazz.
The plate of cheese was decent with two glasses of okay red Bordeaux.
Well worth another try.
Supermoon/full moon November 14, 2016
The full moon of today, November 14, 2016, is the biggest, closest and brightest supermoon of this year.
The full moon is a “Perigee” Moon—when the moon reaches the point in its orbit that is nearest to Earth.
This moon will be nearer to Earth than it’s been in 70 years. While the moon won’t technically be getting any bigger, it will appear up to 14% larger than when it is at its furthest point.
Tonight's full moon is the closest full moon in the 21st century and it won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034.
Besides appearing large and bright in the sky, this extra-close Perigee Moon/Supermoon will also have a more dramatic effect on the tides.
November’s full moon was called the Beaver Moon by both the colonists and the Algonquin tribes because this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. It was also called the Full Frost Moon by Native Americans.

The Supermoon in Taurus over Lac Léman/Lake Geneva. "Loading" some of my stones and holy water from Lourdes with full moon energy.
At the Taurus supermoon, find beauty in boredom, wisdom in waiting, holiness in the humdrum and the test within tolerance. Enlightenment isn’t measured by how long we can meditate. It's enduring the crazy without losing our cool. Breathe through something that seems really dark and just plain crappy right now. Remember: it's always darkest before the dawn.
Au Bureau in Evian
As we are veg., H & I, the waiter at "Au bureau" in Evian adviced us to take their dessert dish cheese plate as a treat with the glass of red we choose. Definitely worth it!
I chose a bordeaux mail box. H put our name... then the rain came...
Today our surname landed on "O". Like the "History of O"... in H's dreams...
Must be hilarious delivering our mail and packages... you'll never know what you'll find...
Full moon in Aries
Outside my window. Can't sleep. Full moon in Aries.
Never ever take an Irish Coffee at Uncle Bean's! A real disaster!
My poor duckling is totally inflated and swollen. Probably a weak lung sac that got punctured due to weak "lung walls" that is leaking air into his tiny body.
Looking Michelin. I'm so worried. Instructed by advice from the net vet we made a little hole in its neck and got some air out. Today the air is all back so I and my son, André, are off to the vet!
With a syringe as a "weapon" I have to drag out air manually several times a day. So afraid hurting something vital. Between his tiny wings at the back is safest. I also medicate it with antibiotics twice per day.
The little duckling is so brave although it feels like Sisyphus him rolling a huge stone uphill each day. Fighting to breathe.
Cross my fingers.
Foire St Michel in Bernex 2016
Bernex or not? Moody H... Que sera.
Foire St Michel.
"La Démontagnée" - the cows coming down from the mountains for autumn/winter.
Passed by with André and Inge who are visiting. Some local wine, cheese and pasteries. Decent day.

Carnivore pond plant search
The hammock on the property still resembles a smiling clown.
Sunflowers in Lully on the search for pond flowers... Unfortunately the natural pond was dried out...
No luck at the Geoparc Chablais either though there is supposed to be carnivore pond plants... Maybe next time?
Bladderworts and waterwheels among others.
