  1. Hi,
    I have so enjoyed surfing your website and especially being inspired this morning to reread the whole of Le Petit Prince online.

    I live near Montreal and am bilingual, so it was an easy read for me. It brought me to tears again and I remembered why I used this book to teach English to my students in Tokyo over 20 years ago. It touched me then as it has again today. Thank you for offering the link on your webpage, and for sharing your thoughts, hopes and inspirations as well as connecting others with similar interests.

    I have never been to a chat room and have not become a member of anything online, but I must say I am pulled to participate in your discussion of this simple, beautiful gift given to us by St. EX.

    So let me know when you will be starting this exchange of ideas. I would love to be part of it.

  2. Dear Zazazu,

    i thought why not to leave a comment while reading you would love comments. You provide a lot of interesting content, too much to read for me at my first visit, so i guess i will be back soon. Thank you.

    Kind regards

  3. Good morning!

    My name is Walt Winkelman and I am a 57 year-old who is just finishing my doctoral degree. Tough not unexpected, my research is on “happiness”.

    I have just starting my blog ( last week and similar have just started to use RSS Feeds. Therefore, I would like to know (if you do not mind sharing your ideas) I would like to querry you on how are you “driving) people to you blog? You know, marketing your site.

    I am extremely busy, but I do like your idea of forming a community. This may not be a fair question, but let me ask…is it possible for me to be linked to another academic/scholar/researcher.

    If by chance you could help me find that connection I would be very interested in particpating.

    In the meantime, if there is any thing that I can do to help you…just let me know.

    Best Personal Regards,
    Walt Winkelman

    I’m from Brazil and I’ve just read your blog while I was looking for some French issues.

    I also love to read and search for French things, and I’m studying French since 2007 and I also would like to speak French fluently one day (not so far I hope so).

    bon jour pour toi…
