About about (or, sans titre)

We’ve been at this new blog for a couple of weeks now.

So far we’ve been pretty consistent at getting the posts out. It felt like the time to elaborate on the brief information found on our “About” page. At first we thought that the following would be enough:

What more could anyone want to know? Well

…we thought, perhaps they would like to see a picture, something that shares some of the things we love (art, travel, reflections*) and maybe a bit of what we look like; so we added the photo above, taken in MUDAM (Luxembourg).

The picture was taken as we wandered along the one-wall maze, Sans Titre of Laurent Pariente (about which you can see more here, though if you don’t speak French, you might lose something); so that’s one thing we both love, art and design. I took it in Luxembourg, on our short and accidentally luxurious Easter break there; that’s a second thing we love, travel. Finally, it was a very spontaneous image; this stands in nicely for our shared love of adventure (Museums of Modern Art are always adventures). The adventure in the wall started out looking like this:

There will be more posts about Luxembourg in the future, and at least one of those will be dedicated to MUDAM itself, but in the meantime, we both hope that you all enjoy more insight into who we are, where we come from, and that it whets the appetite for more.

Of course, we would also love to know who you are, where you’re from, what you are doing. So, how about letting us know?

  3. I’m a huge origami fan. I’ve just started a blog in English about my life in England. I’m intrigued by cross-cultural experiences. I teach origami to students too. Last year we made hundreds of cranes in aid of Japan after the earthquake. I’ll post some of my origami soon too. Love your blog and it’s indeed inspiring. Keep it up!

    • Hi again Janet,

      Nice to see your comment here! Enjoying checking out your blog (like the title, and that it relates to your passion for notebooks and notebook making!), and will continue to enjoy reading about your cross-cultural insights in the UK as a Chinese person. Thanks for telling us about it!

      Fantastic to hear about the hundreds of cranes you made in aid of Japan after the earthquake. Hearing about this, I wish we had thought to do the same. Maybe there is still something that we can do… I know the impacts of the earthquake are ongoing.

      Really happy to hear that you like our blog so much – it’s great to hear, so thanks for your lovely feedback! Hope you keep enjoying it!
