Salomé... notice the head of John on the table behind the cast?!! Cooooool!
Hello there my pretties!!!
I recently went to the opera.
It was lovely! I saw Salomé.
It was breathtaking and so bloody!
I loved it and it made me reflect on how uncivilized we humans are!
The play was written by Oscar Wilde. If you don't know the story, click here.
This time of year, (Spring Equinox, Easter, Passover) I reflect on justice and injustice and how both are shaped by politics and beliefs. Is it the will of the Gods? Could it be that we are just uncivilized?
As I was watching the opera, it struck me how sensitive and brutal we humans are.
John the Baptist was a political prisoner for running his mouth against the Queen and the political machine just ran its course to his beheading.
It seems history repeats itself, (think of all the murders committed for beliefs and politics) over and over and over and over again. Why do we make the same mistakes? I will pray to the Gods for guidance, can't hurt, right?!
That being said, Happy Spring, Happy Easter, Happy Passover!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
