Whatever happens, there are always things you could have done better. You score two goals and you usually feel you could have done better. You score two goals and you usually feel you could have scored a third. That's perfectionism. That's what makes you progress in life.
When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown in to the sea.
Not really. I watched some Chelsea games and I don't really like the way they play.

I started beach football in Monte Carlo when I retired from football in 1997. I liked the game very much.
We won the European Championship last September and now the world title. That is some year for French beach soccer! Now comes the hard part. We have to keep improving and that's difficult because it's tough to do better than winning a world title.
I am searching for abstract ways of expressing reality, abstract forms that will enlighten my own mystery.
