I really liked the museums and streets of Paris
Only the food wasn't as good as I expected
I considered coming to Paris with a group
but I'm a very independent person
Since I work as a mailman in Denver
I was used to walking every day
I also wanted to live an adventure in a foreign place
And I also wanted to practice my French.
They say a lot of things about Paris
They say it's a place where artists find inspiration
They say it's a place where people come to discover something new about their lives
They say it's a place where you can find love
Of course,at my age,I didn't expect any of that
But during those days
I thought a lot about my life
I pondered whether I liked Paris
and whether I would want to live there if I had the money
I imagined myself delivering the mail every day
and getting to know the people who live there
I'm sure they're very nice.
In short...not intense enough, not enough context, too much melodrama, not enough of a sense of reverence for what happened, highly impressive job of recreating the debris field, a charismatic performance from Maggie, overall a mediocre film.
On the other hand, Briony's perjury is a severe crime, despite her not coming to age. She thought because she could write plays she must be so clever and clairvoyant that in her subconsciousness she dubbed herself the ultimate judge of right and wrong and human character. But in reality she was nothing more than a judgemental little brat whose mind had been distorted by jeaulosy.
And I found a very pretty little park
I sat down on a bench and ate the sandwich I had bought
It was very tasty
And then something happened
Something that is hard to describe
I honestly didn't think it was very good at all, though I respect the intentions of the filmmakers. Whatever one wants to say about Oliver Stone, he showed a commitment to faithfully telling the story of these two Port Authority cops trapped in the wreckage of the World Trade Center and their worried wives.
I know I am a heartless bitch and I don't think it's entirely Briony's fault that C and R didn't work out. Is it so surprising that a minor cannot serve as a reliable witness? That's why such evidences are more often than not inadmissible. Clearly the poor little girl didn't see the full picture of the secret/forbidden relationship between her sister and Robbie. And C has only herself to blame for the misunderstandings. I am not saying her superficial style or their pre-marital love affair or the heat of the moment is immoral but for Christ's sake there are four children in the household! Any sensible and responsible adult wouldn't dream of exposing oneself in the garden in daylight when children are up and about, especially when one of the them is a sensitive smug.
I visited a known cemetery where famous people are buried
I saw the grave of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir according to my guidebook
they were famous French writers who loved each other very much
And that's why they're buried together
And I saw the grave of a man whose name was Porfirio Diaz
according to my book
he was Mexico's dictator for thirty five years
It was interesting to be near a man who had had great power
but who now could not move or talk.
I thought about my sister Patty who died at a very young age
And I thought about my mother who died of cancer last year
I also will be buried and maybe no one will come to visit me
But I don't care
I'll be dead
But I'm not a sad person
On the contrary
I'm a happy person
I have many friends and two wonderful dogs.
Sometimes I think that it would be nice to have someone
with whom to share this life
As I was looking down on Paris from atop a skyscraper
I wanted to say to someone 'It's beautiful,isn't it?'
But there isn't anyone.
I thought about my ex-boyfriend
and whether he'd like this trip
But I felt a little stupid
because it had been eleven years since we last talked
He's now married and has three children.
