Watch “ZAZ – Demain c’est toi (vidéo studio)” on YouTube


An internationally famous French singer with a hit for most of her songs.

Her songs/lyrics are even being used in schools to teach French.

This one is particularly moving as the lyrics are words she addresses to her unborn child.

Wishing you all again a very happy gratifying healthy new year!

Demain c’est toi
Zaz
Tomorrow is you
I trace paths that are waiting for you
Je trace des chemins qui n’attendent que toi
To you the child who comes, I precede your steps
À toi l’enfant qui vient, je précède tes pas
I whisper your name in the breath of my voice
Je murmure ton nom dans le souffle de ma voix
I will offer you the world, you I do not know
Je t’offrirai le monde, toi que je ne connais pas
I open my heart wide as you open your hands
Je t’ouvre grand mon cœur comme on ouvre ses mains
I hope you have happiness as big as mine
Je t’espère des bonheurs aussi grands que les miens
Tomorrow is you
Demain c’est toi
I learn the alphabets of each of your actions
J’apprends les alphabets de chacun de tes gestes
I sing you my dreams of spaces and Wild West
Je te chante mes rêves d’espaces et de Far West
I want for you the love, the rare and the precious
Je veux pour toi l’amour, le rare et le précieux
All the beauty of the world at your fingertips
Toute la beauté du monde à portée de tes yeux
Fists heated to white, I’m forging for tomorrow
Les poings chauffés à blanc, je forge pour demain
Your happiness that I wish as big as mine
Tes bonheurs que je souhaite aussi grands que les miens
Tomorrow is you
Demain c’est toi
I give you the keys that open all the chests
Je te donne les clés qui ouvrent tous les coffres
I spray the walls of the prisons that we offer you
Je pulvérise les murs des prisons que l’on t’offre
I run to infinity not to leave you
Je cours à l’infini pour ne pas te laisser
All I did not say is because you know it
Tout c’que je n’t’ai pas dit c’est parce que tu le sais
It’s because you know it
C’est parce que tu le sais
To you the child who comes as a little morning
À toi l’enfant qui vient comme un petit matin
I hope you have happiness as big as mine
Je t’espère des bonheurs aussi grands que les miens
Tomorrow is you
Demain c’est toi

In the act of writing March 2011

This essay was one of my assignments and was written in a tongue-in-cheek manner,
I do not take myself that seriously 🙂 It was about describing oneself in the act
of writing, which I called just that…

In the act of writing
—————–

I usually prepare an assignment long in advance.
Plotting, collecting information, mincing, digesting the style that is about to be born.
Yet, today, I come as ludicrously bare as can be.
I stare at a white immaculate sheet of paper and ponder at the outrageous idea of writing, as a working exercise, as opposed to a burst of fervid passion.
Or, to the growth of my imagination spilling forth in an overflow.
I am surrounded by dictionaries and thesauruses of all kind that, I trust, will unravel the mysteries of words and impel me to the creation of a literary magnificence.
Gilded rays of a timid autumn sun pierce through the remote glass window door, of the balcony, maintaining this room in perpetual darkness, keeping its occupants in sempiternal slumber throughout the seasons of the years.
Nevertheless, I find my mind juggling with phraseology, feeling like a choreographer bearing the conception of a chef-d’oeuvre.
I amalgate ideas, terms, observations and philosophies, in anticipation of a new era…
The creation of my magnum opus.
Hours slide by, in the stimulating atmosphere of reflection and contemplation and I see, merging from the profundity and intricacies of my brain, the outlines of what seems the sketches of an essay.
The gratification of my labor.
I hold dearly unto my chain of thoughts hushing anyone daring any resemblance of vicinity.
I toil away, inching my way through the haze and vasty of language, aware of a day coming to its end, as the sun retrieves its warmth, preparing itself to enlighten another part of the planet’s obscurities.
I close the chapter at its culmination, satisfied by the denouement, at peace by its genesis and in synchronization with the heartbeats of the universe.
I look around and become aware, au fait of stepping out of a different dimension.

All is still.

Everyone having left me to my occupations and busy with theirs, outdoors.
I am surprised to observe the constant rebirth of my soul at the completion of what I fantasize, is

the emergence of my prodigy 🙂

Louise Hay – You can heal your life – srpski prevod ( Most precious and valuable info! )


This is a video I wanted to share with you a long time ago.
It is most precious and valuable information which I treasure
today.

It is long but your perseverance will pay back. One thing that
marked me was a woman who testified ( after precisely 35.50 mn running )
and affirms having cured herself of cancer with a positive
affirmation of Louise Hay.

It struck me and I thought, if she can do that with such an extreme
case I can surely use it to cure my little ailments nagging me.
So I repeated the affirmation which was ” My body now restores itself to
its normal state of good health ” for a month without thinking too much
but, a pattern developed and every time I got to say ” now ” my body
relaxed to a point it’d never managed before.

I realized it connected to the ” Now ” of Byron Katie’s philosophy who says,
the now is usually good and ok. Living in the now is the simplest and
easiest thing to do. It give you a sense of peace and of being complete with
life.

My life has changed in many pleasant details, some big, some small, but I’ll
give you the pleasure to experiment it on your own and keep the anticipation
intact 🙂
