Hi, I am Lénaïc.

I am a kind of researcher-explorer.

Welcome to my blog, Elegant Experiments, which is a bit like my ship-laboratory.

Here, I mainly explore topics related to simple living, although I am curious about almost anything.

Weekly popup newsletter

Follow my explorations

To share my experiments, I write Mésange, a weekly ‘popup’ newsletter.

It is a short-lived newsletter series of 26 letters, that I send to my gracious readers every Sunday, from October 2022 to March 2023.

Each story is inspired by my life and explorations. I craft each one meticulously to offer inspiration, joy, wisdom!

Each story is a surprise, even for me. The next one may be about one of my preferred topics, like permaculture, nature, craftsmanship, autonomy, psychology, philosophy, the mysteries of life… Who knows?

Would you like to be surprised next Sunday? Then, I invite you to subscribe below… ;-)

Free letter, every Sunday, 150+ subscribers, unsubscribe in 2 clicks. Of course, I don't share your e-mail address. You can have a look at my latest stories before subscribing. I also write the newsletter in French if you prefer.

Over the years, I have immersed myself into 6 main themes, which I explore step by step, and which I call my research projects:

Here’s a whole universe to explore and re-explore following your desires!
