I Am Back After Absence

Ah, I have not posted in about two years now. Still, I want to say that Emmanuel Macron winning this week has made me very happy.

I was so afraid that Le Pen would win! Still, France is so divided: Paris and the West support other parties. The East, including Lorraine is very much for Marine Le Pen.  😨😥😰

Je Suis Charlie

No, not the publication.  It is often rude and vulgar and low classe.  But we are for the right of freedom of expression.  That is why we protest.  France, and the free world, will not be cowed.

John Donne on Virginity

I call not that virginity a virtue, which resideth onely in the bodies integrity; much less if it be with a purpose of perpetually keeping it: for then it is a most inhumane vice. - But I call that Virginity a virtue which is willing and desirous to yield it self upon honest and lawfull terms, when just reason requireth; and until then, is kept with a modest chastity of body and mind.

John Donne (1572 - 1631)
