The subject of this text has lived with me for quite a while, but at the same time, a certain unease is holding back my inspiration and my words.
I am going through a period of discomfort even if I have already said, I am a privileged person. I must admit, I am haunted by concerns related to Covid-19, given my age and my immunosuppressed condition. I look forward to it, and at the same time I am afraid of the day when I will be deconfined.
Will I finally be protected? The answer to this question sometimes visits my mind, and the fear rises to a high degree.
Besides, I can't wait! Yes, so impatient! I, the privileged one who, since my childhood, has embraced Easter Day. Everything is ready, and the late spring is purposely getting involved.
So, I've already organized my things. Winter and dark clothes on one side, bright colored one on the other, the maybe or what if pile, and the "comfy" still there to dress me! The "too small" ready to be given. The beautiful pieces to those who cannot afford it, but who will know how to wear it with pride. No thrift store to make money, but the gift to the penniless...
Ah! I can't wait to wear is my "JOURDAIN" which ages so well, refreshed by a few pieces from the spring/summer 2020 collection!
And I know where I'm going! You obviously can't guess... I'll go to the "parlor"! Where? Doesn't mean anything to you, are you looking for a trendy restaurant? You almost have it... People from my generation know well that the boarders of the convent or the college, met their visitors in this room, furnished with a few straight chairs, and, reserved for the chat. That was a parlor. That's it!
Now, my own parlor is my favorite breakfast restaurant, with my best friends, for good conversation. Nothing to prepare, nothing to serve, only chatters and fun! Talking about everything under the sun, commented news, shared knowledge, confidences to free ourselves, and laughter at will! Yes! Humor can rub shoulders with intellectual thoughts and memories accompanied by an egg or two and an excellent coffee.
So, you understand, the "it’s going to be ok" I want it without ambiguity!
