Eivissa

Sometimes I miss you little sister

your spontaneous invitations 

to explore the shore and forest paths

to be in nature with a dance and a drum

you never disappointed

~

Often you floated away

having us under your spell

mesmerising as you are

with long summer dresses 

blowing in the wind

always open to stories and magic

~

You are my hedonist sister

everybody loves and everyone claims

to have a piece of you

~

It makes me sad 

because you are exploited

by those with big dollar-sign eyes

who don’t care about your well-being

their only interest is taking a piece of you

without connecting with who you truly are

your past leave them cold

your wells have dried up, don’t you see?

~

I wish you’d kick those ignorant bastards out

but then they come to me, spoiling it here

while all I want is

real kings and queens

caring for the land 

instead of their next champagne and lobster

And so should you, little sister

I love you.

M. 

Here’s To…YOU.

Only a couple of hours and 2020 is over! It has been a year with many, unprecedented challenges.

Probably for everyone who reads this. 

Yet, I have seen beauty amidst the misery; misery that I encountered in the articles I read and the images I saw and the conspiracies people flung into the world. Sadness that could creep under my skin.

Here’s to….

The immense human creativity that emerged in all corners of the world

Doctors, nurses, health care professionals and all those working in public and mental health and nursery homes, who finally gained the appreciation they deserve (they’re still waiting for more government money though..)

Smoggy air that turned into cleaner skies

Polluted rivers that slowly changed into clearer waters

Silence…

Wild horses in the streets of Sarajevo

Wandering deer in the forests during daylight

Turtles safely laying their eggs at closed beaches

Wildlife!

Being outside, people taking walks

Solidarity 

The cats, dogs and other pets that accompanied us when we had to stay in our homes

Family and friends who supported us during hard times

Dancing at home

Movies and books that helped us through

Honoring the land

Love from our partners (in crime 😉

A renewed appreciation for the small things in life

Introspection

Knowing ourselves 

Knowing our world

Leaving the chaos behind

Here’s to…

A happy & healthy NEW YEAR!!

Con Amor,

Eva

Rather celebrate womanhood.

The French writer and film director, Yann Moix (50), caused female outrage last week after claiming he’s “incapable” of loving a woman aged over 50 because she’s “too old”. Here’s my answer to the angry women.

My sister turned 50 the beginning of January. What should be a better occasion to present her beautiful, sexy lingerie than that? If you might think that a 50-year-old woman can’t be atractive or sexy anymore because she’s “too old”, you’re living on another planet.

Female outrage

The French writer and film director, Yann Moix (50), caused female outrage last week after claiming he’s “incapable” of loving a woman aged over 50. “Come on now, let’s not exaggerate! That’s not possible … too, too old.”
In the interview with Marie-Claire magazine’s French edition, Moix, the author of several prize-winning novels, added that women in their 50s were “invisible” to him. “I prefer younger women’s bodies, that’s all. End of. The body of a 25-year-old woman is extraordinary. The body of a woman of 50 is not extraordinary at all,” he said, adding that he preferred to date Asian women, particularly Koreans, Chinese and Japanese.

Sexist

Insulting and arrogant, but come on, stop being so upset about it. Especially feminist voices on social media saying Moix is a sexist, a racist even. It isn’t unthinkable a middle-aged woman prefers the young and attractive body of a much younger man too, isn’t it? Still, for many of us, love and passion go beyond the adoration of an extraordinary body.

This man is completely lacking a sense of reality. Because look at him. He himself has the “unattractive” age of 50 years, not the best face and probably he has to do it without having a divine body. He’s living in the illusion of being able to explore love with a 25-year-old, so young that he could be her father. Almost Lolita-esque. But who knows, maybe he can. He’s a writer after all.

Cringeworthy opinions

Why such a fuss? This is an opinion and the writer may say whatever he wants, as long as he doesn’t violate the law. That’s what freedom of expression means. And more often than we want we’re listening to anybody’s cringeworthy opinion. Similarly to this petty statement, but he can and he may so. Apparently, Moix could use the attention well to promote his latest novel “Rompre” that appeared on January 2nd. And negative media attention wins too.

The criticism on social media goes from the accusation of sexism and racism to sharing angry comments and pictures of well shaped fifty-year-old bare butts and gorgeous fifty-plus celebrities, such as Julia Roberts, Hale Berry and Monica Bellucci. Not particularly “invisible” women.

Obsessed

But please, there’s nothing to prove! The criticism shows that we women are obsessed with beauty. We often emphasise external beauty and its standards – injected by poisonous adds and media – and compare ourselves to other women – yes, unfortunately I am guilty too, sometimes it goes like this: God, her thighs are massive! She could kill someone with these thighs. Mine are modest, maybe too cute to kill someone, which is actually too bad…(sigh)..

Come on, French ladies, are you really giving this man permission to be “angry” or “sad” because of his pettiness?

Celebration

All this internet commotion does, is telling me we’ve got work to do: to celebrate our femininity and our bodies. Young, old, fat and skinny. Wrapped in skin of all colours. Smooth, tight, wrinkly and loose. We certainly don’t need the approval of men to do that.

Let’s stop trying to prove others we are beautiful and sexy. Each woman is in her own unique way. And let a woman be a woman, sexy or not. She herself decides if she is or isn’t, regardless what others – men – have to say about it. And chances are as well that she doesn’t even care a damn thing.

Con Amor,

Eva
