Motherhood

Mens sana in corpore sano. Most of us are thinking about this phrase more or less consciously on a daily basis. Trying to eat healthier, exercise more (stay fit), visit places with fresher air as often as we can. And most of us, every now and then, try to feed  our minds as well. Options are […]

Was Darth at your family Christmas lunch?

Many of us will have had at least one Darth Vader at the Christmas table this year. More grumpy than a Wookey with dandruff. Moaning about the weather, the noise, the fuss and bother. A traditional dark presence who doesn’t play games or truly get into the spirit of things. It could have been Uncle […]

From all of Clew to all of you

♥ Clew Christmas greetings ♥ These are some of the things the Clew crew had to say to Santa this year: “I just want to tell you I have been good this year and tried most of the time to reeaaally listen to…myself (who else?!)” – Sorana “… this year I am going to ask you […]

Dear Santa

Dear Santa, As I sat down to write to you, I actually got both a writer’s block and a wish block. So I started googling around, and did you know that there’s a website called http://www.grownupletterstosanta.com? Do you even google, or read web letters, or e-mail? It would be kind of cute if you didn’t, but I […]

Dear Santa

Dear Santa, It’s late in the season and I’ve got to get this letter off to you ASAP, so forgive my abruptness (and my foul language). Ya’ see, Santa, this holiday season the only frosty snowman I know of is me. And I don’t wear no silk hat. I don’t smoke no pipe, neither. So […]

White Christmas – a very secret list of magic places

I love Christmas markets. That’s it, now you know my secret! But at the same time, I’m always looking for magic and uniqueness -more than just some nicely decorated wooden stalls and mulled wine. So this is not just a list of Christmas markets, this is what I’m pleased to call: My very secret list of magic places! Christmas in […]

A day in December

On this 8th of December… … the Festival of Lights in Lyon will not be as festive as before. It will be a day of lights, and of solidarity and remembrance, as people fill the streets of Lyon – just as people filled the streets of Paris, its bars and restaurants, Bataclan, some short weeks ago – to light candles in honour of the […]

Dear Santa, this is my wonderful Christmas story

Dear Santa, I haven’t written to you in a long time – but I lost your postal address while moving. I know it sounds incredible – how is it possible to lose Santa’s address? Well.. you travel a lot, you should know how crazy it is to prepare the baggage and leave… Anyway, it’s lucky that you read Clew Magazine from […]

Dear Santa

Dear Santa, I really have everything I could ever wish for, so this year I am going to ask you to bring my share of any gifts to those who really need them. I am thinking especially of those women risking their lives to bring their children to safer countries. Give them some joy and […]

Dear Santa

Dear Santa, I’m making this short, I know you’re really busy with the kids! I just want to tell you I have been good this year and tried most of the time to reeaaally listen to…myself (who else?!) So, here’s my list: ♥ Books, books…more books (you choose – I am not picky) ♥ Shoes. […]
