About Me
An iconoclast requiring perfect Ennglish and French wording and phrasing to convince my clients/business partners/children that some of the ideas I have in mind make sense.

And I need words. Accurate. Appropriate.

Favorite Word:

I've been hesitating between "decent" and "appropriate". ---- I use "decent" to describe honest people, no matter who they are or what they do, to explain my children how they should behave and think. ---- "Decent" people. "Decent" ideas. ---- It's not in "the right way". It's my approach to be honest, consistent, sensible and caring. ---- The other way round, I cannot imagine how to reach my objectives without applying the qualification of "decent" to my approaches.

Least Favorite Word:

The time lost, the ideas you'll never have, the motivating discussions with 4 children, the books you have to read, etc. ---- "Rest" is not for me.
