Non, Rien de Rien

Non, Rien de rienNon, Je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a faitNi le mal tout ça m'est bien égal
     It is funny how children recognize songs in the radio from movies they have seen; when for us the memory comes a bit different . . . 
     Saturday we were watching "Madagascar 3" when the French "animal control lady" started singing "non, je ne regrette rien" probably for you this will be new, my goodness!! it was news for my mom and she is 74 years old.
     Non, je ne regrette rien, is a beautiful song from the 1956 which Édith Piaf made famous in 1960 soon before she died, ironic. . . . No regrets.
     How do I know this? 
     In 2007 I came across "La Vie en Rose" where Marion Cotillard brought to life the story of Édith Piaf, I saw the movie then and her story took a piece of my heart. Édith Piaf is a forgotten artist but not for many. I'm proud to say I have her music in my I-pod. 
     I'm overwhelmed about her music, her story, her life; about this beautiful song that tells me "no for nothing, but I have no regrets" and about her last words, "every stupid thing we do in life, we pay for it". I feel sad that I didn't get to meet her, but I'm happy to think that I got to know her.
Enjoy this video, I hope it gives you that love that only Édith Pian can give in her songs.

Blogging For Everyone!!

       It's been some time since my last post, as I drive to and from work everyday I think of something interesting to give my opinion or just blog about, but as I sit in front of my husband's laptop, just because mine is broken, I end up without opinion to give. I guess that's a good thing we don't need more people with opinions in this world. LOL . BUT since I like to exercise my freedom of opinion, here it goes:


     Everyday it's something new, everyday someone gets offended about something: someone that we grew up watching to, dies; or an outrageous thing happens that turns our eyes to the sky asking why? those are the things I would like to blog about... (see?... my opinion) 

     With one hand in the steering wheel and the other one in the shifter I formulate a great conjunction of words to post in my blog, but as I reach my destination the great creation that I had in my mind totally vanish, I guess it takes great dedication to blog about life everyday, like in "Julie and Julia", or like the Roman Mission that posts things about their service. Or my favorite that "SMART" guy who is traveling the world without a penny on his name, yet he's been closer to the Dali Lama that we can ever imagine.  

     I guess blogging is not for everyone then, it requires you to dedicate your time and means to write something that very few will read, if you're lucky, requires you to be interesting, so you can have some followers, but the most important thing is that requires to "mean" something to you so you can continue doing it.

    I guess lately my blog has been calling me to come back and get to wringing again... or it could be that I read somewhere that "If you don't use it, you'll loose it" (the blog not your intelligence) lol so I'm here with faith that it won't be two years before I post something again.

     There's no promise to the reader that has reach this line so far down my post, that will encourage you to come back at other time to read what's on my mind for the day. I guess I'm the one who needs the encouragement of the reader to inspire me to write again... Or I just shouldn't be lazy and give my opinion anyway. . . We'll see.

Scripture of the Day

"Bring ye all the tithes
into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts;
if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it

-Malachi 3:10-
