"I do believe
in an everyday
sort of magic * *
the inexplicable connectedness
we sometimes experience
with places , people ,
works of art and
the like ;
 the eerie appropriateness
of the moments of synchronicity ;
the whispered voice,
the hidden presence,
when we think we're alone ....."

Charles de Lint 

When I was thinking about 
a name for my blog 
I could not have imagened
how suitable my choice would be.
When I am  looking for 
what and how to write here 
I often forget to stick to my choice !
* * by SURPRISE * *

I wanted to do my blog in english 
to meet bloggers from all over the world .
I love the language and that 
I am always learning .......
to express what I want to write 
in this beautiful language .
learning new words can make me so so happy .

I DO love the surprises
in each and every day .
I love my life at home .
and I am now 
off ...... to surprise you bloggers with a visit !

Happy Pentecost to all of you .

  1. Francis, your English is so impressive, I would never know that you were not a native speaker. Your writing exceeds any language barriers and I am always looking to see what surprise you will reveal to us.

    I hope you got my response to your email; I did receive your message from a while back: BY SURPRISE! And to my total joy.

    HUGS TO YOU! Anita

  2. I always smile when my blog roll shows **by surprise at the top. Your topic is always a welcome surprise.

    Make it a great day!

  3. Francis,
    It was your blog name at first that caught my attention, did you know that? I really liked the name because I LOVE SURPRISES TOO! And if you think about it, life has many surprises. You always come up with the most delightful quotes, and I end up writing them down because they speak to my heart.

    Thank you for being a surprise in my life, Francis.
