Don't leave me

Ne Me Quitte Pas by Jacques Brel

(with my personal favourite of English translation)

Ne Me Quitte Pas was written after Brel was thrown out of Zizou's ( Suzane Gabrilleo - his mistress at the time) life after casting shame and sadness upon her. Zizou is pregnant with Brel's child and had and abortion after Brel refused fatherhood.

It is considered by some as ''Brel's Ultimate Classic''. He would later say in an interview that the song is NOT a love song but rather a song about the cowardice of men.

Malignant Self Love

Whoever loves becomes humble. Those who love have, so to speak, pawned a part of their narcissism -Sigmeund Freud-

Behinde the word NARCISSIST

The name "narcissism" is derived from Greek mythology.

Narcissus was a handsome Greek youth who, had never seen his reflection, but because of a prediction by an Oracle, looked in a pool of water and saw his reflection for the first time.

The nymph Echo who had been punished by Hera for gossiping and cursed to forever have the last word.

She had seen Narcissus walking through the forest and wanted to talk to him, but because of her curse she wasn't able to speak first.

As Narcissus was walking along he got thirsty and stopped to take a drink, it was then he saw his reflection for the first time, not knowing any better he started talking to it.

Echo, who had been following him then started repeating the last thing he said back, not knowing about reflections Narcissus thought his reflection was speaking to him.

Unable to consummate his love, Narcissus pined away at the pool and changed into the flower that bears his name, the narcissus.

The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. - Jules Verne -

La mer
The Sea
Qu'on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
That one sees dancing along the clear gulfs
A des reflets d'argent
Has silver reflections
La mer
The Sea
Des reflets changeants
Changing reflections
Sous la pluie
Under the rain

La mer
The Sea
Au ciel d'été confond
In the summer sky merge
Ses blancs moutons
Its white sheep
Avec les anges si purs
With such pure angels
La mer bergère d'azur
The sea, shepherdess of azure

Près des étangs
Close to the ponds
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
These large wet reeds
Ces oiseaux blancs
These white birds
Et ces maisons rouillées
And these rusted houses

La mer
The Sea
Les a bercés
Has rocked them
Le long des golfes clairs
Along the clear gulfs
Et d'une chanson d'amour
And with a song of love
La mer
The Sea
A bercé mon cœur pour la vie
Has soothed my heart for life

Put things into perspective

We are all something, but none of us are everything - Blaise Pascal-

The tittle of this entry is the main reason why i want to start writing my own blog.

I need a space where i can say whatever and whenever i want to.

It's kind of a reminder to myself of who i really am - who and what i want to become.

What are the things that makes my heart ticks and the things that have made me becomes me, today.

I need to put everything back into perspective and remain in the perspective.

It would be great if i could forget about everything just for a while.

And start doing what i love to do most - talking about myself!

And YES, the world does evolve around me and myself.
