dolls...


over the weekend we went to a large brocante, flea market, and i found the place full of old, once cherished dolls. often wondered why people, even me at times, find old dolls creepy and off-putting. is it because they are often so life like and are forever locked in one facial expression and/or position? or is it because some kind of energy, usually of long dead children, clings to them and we humans are more superstitious than we want to believe? do we fear these inanimate objects somehow thinking they just might have more power than we suppose?

through the ages, stories have been told, written and made into films about inanimate objects such as dolls and statues coming to life when no one is around to witness. obviously we have had centuries long fascination with objects made in our image. perhaps it's the creation story told again and again from different angles, with mortals as the stand-in for god.

to me in my childhood, elves and fairies of all sorts were very real things, and my dolls were as really children as i was myself a child.  annie besant

manifestation...


yesterday went to have my eyeglasses repaired, i sat on them, and walked out of the metro into a massive manifestation. over 100,000 people of all ages and social status were demonstrating against the new proposed labor law known as 'loi el khomri'.

this new law would change, among other things, retirement age, overtime rules and affect hiring and/or termination of employees. obviously, a vast majority of the working people seem to be against the implementation of 'loi el khomri'.

work to live? or live to work?
