My name is Lilou Sticks and for the moment, I have nowhere to call home.

So everyday, I read, take pictures, watch films, eat cinnamon buns and cookies, go to museums, drink blue water, walk, I walk a lot, a whole lot, look at mirrors, listen to music, touch fabrics, taste and smell everything around me.

This is how I am trying to remember where I come from.

If you feel the same way I do, let’s try to find our homes together.

Talons Aiguilles

Today I felt too small. I wanted to be taller.
So I tied two upside down buckets to my feet. I felt taller but I kept bumping into things and I couldn’t get through the door so I ended up having to take them off.
I went straight to the shoe shop and I told the lady I wanted shoes that made me taller. She brought me a pair of "high heels" and said:
“These will give you killer legs!”
I didn’t really understand why she would tell me something like that but I tried them on anyways.
I tried them on and walked around. I felt tall.
I didn’t have to reach, climb or jump to get anything.
Then I fell, from high, and it hurt. too much.
So I told the lady, thank you, but I will not be needing the shoes that make me taller because anyways reaching, climbing and jumping is good exercise.
