Questions

When people ask about love, what it means to me and how I deal with it, to be true I have many questions in mind and most of the time no answers to them.

When people ask about what I want, I don’t know really. I want everything and nothing. Cause I can have everything if I wish to but does this everything will really make me happy?

When people ask about money, when they talk about value, I got lost. What value has to do with money?

When people have questions, I have more questions coming to mind. This is what makes me grow in a way. But I understood recently that I’ll never have all the answers, so sometimes it’s best to just let go and see what life’s got for me.

Are you good at answering questions? Do you know exactly what you want? If not, how are you dealing with this?

Thoughts on…

We may think we are free. Till we realize we are enchained. By limited thoughts and the choices made.

We are the ones who can change the deal. Every single moment. But are we ready for it? Ready to face the unknown and maybe the disillusion in the eyes of the ones we love?

Is there love when we are trying to make everything fit in a life that can’t hold it? When we are hiding ourselves behind the veil of doubt?

What are we ready to lose? What are we ready to give in?

Where is the truth between the thin line of two lives we are knitting together so we don’t have to choose, only to hope it would last ?

Is love enough to hold us tight?

F***ing QR code!

The other day, I was out in Paris, enjoying a sunny day. I was on my way to get some books at the library. And as I was in a nice area and there was a nice “salon de thé” on the way, I was ready to take myself for a little treat!

I got in and the waitress told me to scan the QR code to get the menu. Without even saying hello. Rude!

I know it’s only got to do with an app on your mobile phone, but I don’t like it. Even if I can understand that during such a special time, it’s something useful. Maybe they could just add a menu at the entrance of the shop. Or find a way that can suit everybody. Is is too much to ask? We’re all humans after all. Nowadays I feel like we are devices living a human life. It’s shocking!

I mean some people don’t have a smartphone. And maybe some people got one but don’t have a clue what a QR code is. In this word of “new technologies” we think that everybody has the same chances. But no.

One of my friend, who is teaching in secondary school told me that during the lockdown, half the kids didn’t have access to Internet. Or even have a computer.

On a different but related matter, not later than this summer, my grand-mother had to order a new ID card. The process is a mess. The French Administration requires an email address or a mobile phone number for people to get in touch with her. She’s 97 years old! Wake up guys! She doesn’t have a clue what you’re talking about. She’s from another planet, a different time. And this is not a single exemple. Unfortunately.

So, I left the shop, as a way to say that I didn’t agree with this new way of dealing with people!
