Spring has finally sprung....in Paris.
Hi! I'm a 23 french Parisian guy, currently studying in Landscape engineering school. I love Paris because it has so many beautiful and very famous green spaces as well as so much iconic architecture. I feel very spoiled living here. A walk across this city can be entertaining, but Tour Effel, Champs-Elysée, and Le Louvre are just a little part of what Paris is. That's why I invite you to discover the most beautiful gardens in Paris. Wonderful tr...

After being literally haunted for the last 24 hours by this exquisite rendition of Radiohead's 'Creep,' I had to share it with y'all. Sorry....:-)

It is a haunting, yet beautiful cover of one of the all time great alternative rock songs, +Peter Pawlak. Thanks for sharing it further.

This is what anti-vaccination propaganda sounds like to people who aren't ignorant.

e.g., "I don't believe in microwaves. My son used one, and now he's gay."

I can see my old apartment. The big marina (centre right). On the right of that is an apartment building (you can just see swimming pool). I had 3 bedroom apartment on the top floor!

"Like The Notebook," indeed.

This just might be the ultimate story of two people who had decided to love each other to the limit, and to sacrifice the most important thing of all....themselves. Each of them, throughout their life together, had changed in ways to be most healing to the other, to give of themselves in ways that most increased the dignity and strength of the other. Their relationship had formed two people who became humble and merciful and loving and peaceful.

Is this the greatest Nessun Dorma performance ever? Or maybe the one performed in Paris four years later, in 1998? 
Whatever the opinion, I hope we can all agree that the Nessun Dorma yardstick by which all performances should be measured was created by the legendary Luciano Pavarotti.
Considered to be one of the most, if not THE MOST,  difficult operatic song(s) to master, these days everyone wants to perform it as long as they can belt out the notes, with little knowledge of what it takes to sing this song with refined control of the so many subtle nuances.
Anyhow, I personally believe Pavarotti set the standard so high that his interpretation is, and will continue to be, hard to beat.

Introduction
  • I am... 
  • I am fiercely private.  
  • I am fiercely loyal.   
  • I am an elitist and an epicure.  
  • I am an epicurean elitist.  
  • I am compulsive about everything I think, feel, say and do.  
  • I am a photographer without a camera.  
  • I am a painter without a brush.  
  • I am a musician without an instrument.  
  • I am a deceptively keen listener and observer.  
  • I shall not judge...I don't hold a gavel.  
  • I shall never censor myself just to comfort one's ignorance and intolerance.  
  • I shall not debate what is not debatable.  
  • I shall not talk unless I have something substantive to say, and even then, only I choose if, or when, to say it...and to whom.
  • I shall write, post and share any new and original content almost exclusively to a private and very limited circle(s).
  • I shall only post and re-share publicly mainstream content of my choice.
  • I show up.  
  • I question...

Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said that "we are entitled to our own opinions, but we are not entitled to our own facts." However, too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.  
We should always feel compelled to identify that many issues in any debate are not actually debatable, but rather easily known facts. Too many people are simply denying the obvious.

"Before deciding to share publicly our thoughts and opinions, we need the kind of objectivity that makes us forget everything we have heard and read, clear the table, and do a factual study like any scientist would."   

"Truth is truth even if no one believes it. A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it." 

"No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar."  - Abraham Lincoln  

"All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose."    

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."  - Calvin Coolidge
