Accordion… your child’s first instrument?

Maybe it was because we had a piano at home. Around the age of 5 I found myself getting lessons from a teacher on that black box with white and black keys. According to various sources on Internet, piano, guitar, violin or the flute are the main instruments the parents see as best suitable for […]

Innovation ?=? Something new

Innovation is one of the mostly used words of recent years. If you ask about its meaning, you get many pages of explanation, almost for sure with the word “new” mentiond a couple of times. No, I will not tell you that I’ve found a way to explain its meaning with only one sentence. Whatever […]

“You are a great guy!”

Years ago I received a lot of praise as I was deferentially seen to the door after each of my meetings concerning a new product. I enjoyed the flattering. However, I was not successful in marketing that product. Suppose that you think that you have a good idea and you decide to bring this idea […]

“The same way you make love…”

“How did I think up my drawings? Well I’d come home to my Paris studio at night, I’d go to bed, and sometimes I hadn’t any supper. I saw things, and I jotted them down in a notebook. I saw shapes on the ceiling…” […] ”Poetry and painting are done in the same way you […]
