My last post

My next holiday!

I am starting dreaming at my next holiday, and here is the place I would love to visit! Unfortunately for me, it is only for very rich peoples and stars. As I am not a star yet, nor I am rich, I can either save money, either play lotto, or either spend my holiday in New Jersey.LOL.
The thing is I never play Lotto, and New Jersey is not very exotic, so I have no real choice, I have to save money, and hope that the economy will improve, but again, I am not a player :). Or I could  also create a paypal donation button for my blog. But then it would not fit in my blog design, and I hate disharmony!!
Ok, so my only option is to save money, and hope!!!

Love poem



This is one of my favorite love poem by Jacques prevert.


For you my love

For you, my love
I went to a bird market
And I bought a bird
For you
My love
I went to a flower market
And I bought a flower
For you
My love
I went to a junk market
And I bought a chain
A heavey chain
For you
My love
And I went to a slave market
And I searched for you
But I couldn't find you anywhere
My love

                                   Jacques prevert

Invictus

The 10 june was the opening of the soccer world cup in South-Africa :).
This is the first time This event happens in Africa.
I am not a big soccer fan, but as I am half African, I am very proud that the world cup finally takes place in Africa, and even more proud that it is in South Africa.


Yesterday, I watched the movie "Invictus". I never made a movie critic, and will not start today :).
I was just surprised by the content, and this is what I wanted to share with you.
I new it was about Nelson Mandela, but was surprised to discover that it was not about his fight to defend his ideal and liberate his country from apartheid, but in reality about the way he managed to reunite the majority of African natives ( who were mistreated for years) with those who mistreated them, the Africaaners.
It is while watching this movie that I understood how a great person is Mandela. I have always admired him for the great personal sacrifices he has made to liberate his country ( 27 years in prison...), but I had underestimated the greatness it needed to reconcile these two enemies. The greatness it needed to forgive one who has hurt you and who has treated you very badly.
I also realized how nothing is eternal, and how life surprises us.
Mandela makes me very proud of my African origins, and I am sure, the whole african continent will stand very proud.

"Invictus" the title of the movie comes from this beautiful poem that has inspired and encouraged Mandela not to give up during his years of captivity.
I confess that I just discovered the poem after watching the movie:


Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley.
