Goodbye to summer and all it meant to me
It can never bring the things that used to be

For I must have you or no one
Or else I'm thru with love

what a lovely way to burn!

"Within the first few minutes of conversation with Lance things suddenly and massively changed for me. I fell in love. Every single part of him…
Lance is one of the most complicated creatures on the planet. But that is why I love him. And above all, he makes me feel safe. When I’m with him, I feel like I can take over the world." - Tom Daley

“When Tom and I met four years ago, I knew instantly I was in trouble”, Lance says. “I knew I had met my match. I had met someone who would inspire me. Someone who I could admire, but also somebody who would naturally be my best friend. And it didn’t hurt that he was incredibly cute and charismatic and didn’t let me get away with a thing.” - Dustin Lance Black

Some day he'll come along
The man I love
And he'll be big and strong
The man I love

And when he comes my way
I'll do my best to make him stay
He'll look at me and smile
I'll understand

And in a little while
He'll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won't say a word

Maybe I shall meet him Sunday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still I'm sure to meet him one day
Maybe Tuesday will be my good-news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'll never roam,
Who would - would you?

And so all else above
I'm waiting for the man I love...

- Ira & George Gershwin - The Man I Love (1924)

Sweet Summer Sweat

72 years ago, the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima,
instantly killing 80 000 civilians.

In Memoriam.


* "Toutes blessent (les heures), la dernière tue." Jadis inscrite sur le fronton de certaines horloges publiques ou cadrans solaires, cette devise latine moralise sur la fuite cruelle du temps et la nécessité de jouir de chaque heure qui passe, la dernière pouvant intervenir à tout moment. L'ironie de la juxtaposition, dans cette petite gare portugaise, de cette (magnifique) horloge et du nom de la bourgade n'échappera pas au lecteur francophone.
* "They all wound (the hours), the last one kills." This Latin motto was formerly found on public clocks or on sundials. It was an apt reminder that your time on earth grows shorter with each passing minute. French speakers will not miss the irony of the location of the clock in this small Portuguese railroad station -- right below the borough's name, which translates into French as "Killed" (TUA).
