Depuis deux ans qu'elle reluquait ce tableau de Zilon, chaque fois que nous passions devant cette galerie d'art rue St-Jean?St-Nic a entendu son souhait!
Ou est-ce plus "survie", prolongement d'une existence, beyond un certain terme dit le dic!!
Although an exinct species, believe me you could still, as I did, live a mammoth attack in your dreams! Their huge size, long hair, and even longer curved tusks seemed to expand as it charged towards in my sleep, and frightened me to wake, unable to run.
You may not see it, but somewhere over those branches, is my beautiful Castle, Le Frontenac!
I'm guessing, this person never made it there!
"As the seconds tick like hours, my legs shaking, Michelle straining against me, the birds begin their singing again. The men remain stone silent, heads bowed, eyes closed.
As if in stereo, two plaintive voices rise, each from somewhere far down in the crowd. Women's voices, high and pitch perfect. I recognize the Latin words immediately. The women sing Ave Maria. It is the most beautiful rendition I've ever heard.
In those minutes, everything falls away?The sky is a hot, deep blue above us, full of song. I pray that the singers never stop." J. Boyden, Christmas in Shantytown
Perhaps but, didn't SHE (Mom Nature) adapt always? I'm not Fou d'espoir and ne danserai pas comme elle dans les airs but?I hope!
Si un jour vous recevez, c'est une invitation que personne devrait refuser; un dimanche italien. Some forty of us were at the Giglias for an afternoon "lunch"?Simplement charmant!
La Madonne, si, St-John, Oh right, but Serge?
De la grande visite d'une grande dame au Palais des Nations hier. Je n'avais pas vu la note dans son livre qu'elle me laissera: "To my distinguished friend Romeo, with deep appreciation of his noble activities in protecting the rights of the Crees and human rights and fundamental freedoms in general." Erica-Irene A. Daes, Geneva, December 17, 2008
:?Am I being stared down at? Or am I looking up to her?
William used to pause before that tall and straight birch standing on the shore of Lake Puustamica, and contemplate. I imagine he imagined what he could make of its perfect line. Snowshoes for the beloved young wife? Paddles for his next excursion to Waskaganish? A new canoe for the family perhaps? Bows for the boys? Truth is, he never touched it and I imagine that he preferred to imagine the beauty in the things he could've made with it!
I pause, below the weeping birch, atop of a soft hill, on the grounds of the PdN, always, to imagine, like William, N'Uutaawee.
"Mon pere, en m'embrassant, fut saisi d'un tressaillement que je crois sentir et partager encore. Jean-Jacques, me disait-il, aime ton pays." J-J Rousseau
Pourquoi do I get l'impression qu'I'm flying to quelque part toujours?
Seuls les bouleaux s'inclinent devant Dame nature!
Preambular paragraph 2 proclaimed, 60 years ago: "Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people, " UN General Assembly, December 10 1948
Could not return home today, raison: snow storm! What does one do, besides hitting that lonely Bistro, in a dark ally, in equally dull Hull? That's where I met the lively Insa, Senegal, and we talked. We talked Africa. We spoke Obama. We thought Indigena. We listened to Ziggy. The people you meet on the street; can't beat, that!
"Vous faites une promenade dans la neige?Elle est claire comme l'enfance. Elle est blanche, toute blanche comme l'esprit d'enfance." C. Bobin, La part manquante
?I came, I saw, I stuck around. Wandering around this wonderful City yesterday afternoon, I came to realize that it had been more than nineteen winters I've spent here while I was supposed to stay for a year only. Just forget to leave I imagine!
Or, Nounou Quebec aime Toutou Canada?
Ce que le Sous-ministre des Affaires autochtones racontait?? j'ignore, c'est le baiser qui importe!
And the definition of the term "person"? The indian Act, formerly known as the Act to Civilize the Savages in Canada, defined it simply this way: "The term "person" in this act shall mean any individual except an Indian." Have times changed? Nah! Not really!!
"Maybe this world is another planet's hell." A. Huxley
" Et jeudi, es-tu libre?pour une nuit toride?" J'ignore qui fut le destinataire de cette invitation, euh, correcte!
