And then, suddenly, there’s something else. When you least expect it. Suddenly there’s an opportunity, an opening, a person or people you couldn’t have imagined, and - elation! - it feels as though you’ve found the pot of gold, when you’d thought all the gilt was gone from this world forever. It’s enough, for a time - maybe even for a long time - to make you forget that you were ever angry, that you ever knew what anger was at all.
— Claire Messud, The Woman Upstairs.

You guys, look at the Parisian street urchins. It’s practically Les Miz.

From my 2006 thesis on Sarkozy:

"What to make of Sarkozy’s ambitious and noble goals in a political culture unequipped to handle such openness and sympathy to religion? Here is the problem of the French Catholic. Is belief in the appealing rhetoric of a charming politician the right path back from what some would deem a nation’s lost faith? Does Sarkozy’s promise for a tamer laïcité force a French Catholic to compromise one of his two sacred religions? If the French revolution and even the twentieth century demonstrate anything, it is that although the French identity can be double-croyant, there is little hope for it to practice both faiths fully – secularism and Catholicism. Sarkozy’s formule for a different future appears sumptuous, but will it leave an even worse aftertaste?”

What an idiot I was. “Ambitious,” yes. “Noble”? Ha.

Also, “Catholicism.”

A nice cross-section of who I care about: best coworker(s), best friend (girl and guy), dead ex, cousin, love in Belgium. (Scary, you’re never on FB, or you’d be here.)
