Aujourd'hui... rien!

Aujourd’hui… rien, Today… nothing !

This is what Louis XVI wrote in his journal for the 14th of July 1789, the day of the Bastille.

Actually, what he meant is that nothing had happened during the daily hunt. He learnt about the Bastille only later in the night and then asked “Is this a revolt?”. Rather phlegmatic about it all.


Actually, what I mean is that there will not be any real post today. Still painting… for another week or more.

It is a 4-day holiday weekend for us in the US. We will be eating as much food as Louis XVI at the Versailles.

Et on lui a répondu: "non sire c'est une révolution".Bonne barbouille encore aujourd'hui.

What a contrast between this report and the frantic blather and pseudo-analysis of today's 24 hr news culture....Today, rien would accompanied by endless phone ins and tell us what you thinks about...nothing.

Nice days, Peter!

alice said...

Quelle jolie façon de tourner ce "rien" de ta part! Toujours rien côté tendinite, j'espère ;-)

Matritensis said...

OK, Peter Buonarroti ;)

Neva said...

I am feeling very sore for you.

Cergie said...

Se retourner sur l'histoire est plus aisé que de la faire. Voilà ce que prouve la phrase de Louis XVI.

Nice...? Yes, I guess. At least a change!

alice:
Pas de tendenite, mais un peu de souffrance quand même!

matritensis:
We gave up the idea to copy Michelangelo; just plain one colour walls. Tough enough!

Peter said...

Thaks for your sympathy!

cergie:
Tu as bien raison - comme d'habitude!
