“Bourgeois Is So French” – Daily Shatzi: Tuesday Theme

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday 🙂

Today is a little better than yesterday was, right? Don’t you all feel less bitter about the cruelty of feeling your week-end wither away into a vague memory? Oops, am I bringing all the pain back? I’m sorry.

Anyway, I thought you could use a little foreign wandering to theme your day. A classy, posh and stylish foreign wandering, French, to be exact.

I’m French, and I love a lot of things in the French Culture, the building architecture and the arts especially. French literature also never failed to make me dream. I want to give you a little piece of it all with today Shatzi. Enjoy!

Quote of the Day

Live to the point of tears

Albert Camus

ON THE FAVES SHELF | les misérables by Victor Hugo –  “teach the ignorant as much as you can; society is culpable in not providing a free education for all and it must answer for the night which it produces. if the soul is left in darkness sins will be committed. the guilty one is not he who commits the sin, but he who causes the darkness.”


Song of the day

He had brown hair
A tanned skin
A shy gaze
And callous hands

He used to carve stones
The son of a laborer

He was proud of it
But, why are you laughing?

No, don’t judge him

You, who knows nothing of
The fainting spells
And the labor

You, who are falsely happy
And selling your valor

He is my all world
And more so than that
Alone, I scream his name
When the despair comes

And everything crumbles
When is no longer here
I wish I could tell him
But I don’ dare

He makes me spinning in empty spaces
Spinning in empty spaces
He makes me spinning
In empty, empty, empty


Spinning in empty spaces
Spinning empty spaces
He makes me spinning…

See you all tommorow and enjoy your day!
