La Manneporte (grande porte) plus large que la porte d'Aval. Les falaises d’Étretat ont inspiré les plus illustres artistes peintres comme Gustave Courbet, Eugène Boudin ou Claude Monet. Des écrivains comme Gustave Flaubert et Guy de Maupassant ont été des fidèles du lieu tandis que Maurice Leblanc, qui y vécut, contribua au mythe entourant le site dans une aventure d'Arsène Lupin intitulée L'Aiguille Creuse.

I love autumn—that melancholy season that suits memories so well. When the trees have lost their leaves, when the sky at sunset still preserves the russet hue that fills with gold the withered grass, it is sweet to watch the final fading of the fires that until recently burnt within you.

J’aime l’automne, cette triste saison va bien aux souvenirs. Quand les arbres n’ont plus de feuilles, quand le ciel conserve encore au crépuscule la teinte rousse qui dore l’herbe fanée, il est doux de regarder s’éteindre tout ce qui naguère brûlait encore en vous.

Gustave Flaubert

Esistono cammini senza viaggiatori. Ma vi sono ancor più viaggiatori che non hanno i loro sentieri.

 

Gustave Flaubert, Lettera a Louise Colet, 1847

 

“La fenêtre, en province, remplace le théâtre et les promenades.”

Gustave Flaubert

On the road through Rannoch Moor and Glencoe in the Scottish HIghlands I could not help feeling a sense of vastness, grandeur, and loneliness.

Naguère modeste village de pêcheurs, Étretat est devenue une station balnéaire de renom. Elle se trouve au nord du Havre en Normandie, sur le littoral de la Manche en pays de Caux. L'aspect extraordinaire et monumental de ses falaises de craie blanche presque immaculée et ses plages de galets grisâtres en ont fait un des lieux du tourisme international. Des peintres comme Gustave Courbet, Eugène Boudin ou Claude Monet ont beaucoup contribué à sa publicité, en en immortalisant la spécificité. Des écrivains comme Gustave Flaubert et Guy de Maupassant ont été des fidèles du lieu tandis que Maurice Leblanc, qui y vécut, contribua au mythe entourant le site dans une aventure d'Arsène Lupin intitulée L'Aiguille creuse.

 

Once a modest fishing village, Étretat has become a renowned seaside resort. It is located north of Le Havre in Normandy, on the coast of the English Channel in Caux. The extraordinary and monumental aspect of its almost immaculate white chalk cliffs and its grayish pebble beaches have made it one of the places of international tourism. Painters such as Gustave Courbet, Eugène Boudin and Claude Monet contributed greatly to his publicity by immortalizing its specificity. Writers such as Gustave Flaubert and Guy de Maupassant were faithful to the site, while Maurice Leblanc, who lived there, contributed to the myth surrounding the site in an adventure by Arsène Lupine entitled L'Aiguille creuse.

“Are the days of winter sunshine just as sad for you, too? When it is misty, in the evenings, and I am out walking by myself, it seems to me that the rain is falling through my heart and causing it to crumble into ruins.”

― Gustave Flaubert, November

Location:

"Hotel Del Salto within Second Life :

Song:

"Toto La Momposina - Oye Manita"

 

*This sim had spectacular views, and an interesting historical narrative. Based on an old house which became a hotel in Colombian near waterfalls it was a gorgeous setting in both a sim and in real life. It is a pity that nature is taking it back. Then again, as with humanity nature always wins.

"Un cuore è una ricchezza che non si vende e non si compra: si dona."

 

"A heart is a richness that is not for sale and you don't buy: You give it."

“Everything in art depends on execution: the story of a louse can be as beautiful as the story of Alexander. You must write according to your feelings, be sure those feelings are true, and let everything else go hang. When a line is good it ceases to belong to any school. A line of prose must be as immutable as a line of poetry.”

 

― Julian Barnes, Flaubert's Parrot

WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW – AMY WINEHOUSE

 

Parrots are very social creatures

full-on colours and pretty features

loving and giving and bringing delight

perched on a branch or in full flight

 

I study them and think anew

of what we can learn and what we can do

smile at a stranger; give the gift of love

offer a helping hand like an angel above

 

They make me smile with their funny ways

these Rainbow Lorikeets prefer sunnier days

but they seem happy despite the rain; carefree

they love each other that is plain to see

 

Male and female are hard to tell apart

both are beautiful and warm my heart

she is on the left and he is on the right

it's easier to tell when they're sitting tight

 

The female has some yellow that mingles with the red

and the male one has the reddest breast and a squarer head

just then they turned towards me and them I am unsure

but does it really matter as long as they adore

 

They like to eat pollen and nectar and fruit

the male puffs up his rainbow suit

protecting his mate from the other parrots

so she can digest her food but she does not like carrots

 

They like apples and pears and grapes and sunflower seeds

some figs and nectar to fulfil their needs

papayas and mangoes opened by a fruit bat

make them smile inside like the Cheshire cat

 

I stayed with them for quite a long while

getting drenched but with a constant smile

and then sadly it was time to go

what a lovely experience; my dreams overflow.

“It is always sad to leave a place to which one knows one will never return. Such are the melancolies du voyage: perhaps they are one of the most rewarding things about traveling.”

"Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world." -- Gustave Flaubert

Encontrada de nuevo en un volumen de la correspondencia de Flaubert, releída y subrayada por mí hacia 1927, la frase inolvidable: “Cuando los dioses ya no existían y Cristo no había aparecido aún, hubo un momento único, desde Cicerón hasta Marco Aurelio, en que sólo estuvo el hombre”.

“I tried to discover, in the rumor of forests and waves, words that other men could not hear, and I pricked up my ears to listen to the revelation of their harmony.”

―quote by Gustave Flaubert,

“Everything, even herself, was now unbearable to her. She wished that, taking wing like a bird, she could fly somewhere, far away to regions of purity, and there grow young again.”

Gustave Flaubert, Madame Bovary

Tutto se ne va, tutto passa, l’acqua scorre e il cuore dimentica.

Gustave Flaubert, “Madame Bovary”

“For none of us can ever express the exact measure of his needs or his thoughts or his sorrows; and human speech is like a cracked kettle on which we tap crude rhythms for bears to dance to, while we long to make music that will melt the stars." – Gustave Flaubert, Charles Bovary
