In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields….  ………RESPECT AND HONOR !!!unknown tomb

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women’s groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, “Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping” by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication “To The Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead” (Source: Duke University’s Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it’s difficult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings; each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860’s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his official proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very first, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to  HONOR THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR ALL .

In fiecare femeie salasuieste  o * Holly* Ne seamana. E chipul sub care suntem iubite.  Il purtam cu mandrie .

Si fie ca viata sa ne poarte mereu pe creasta  ei precum visam cand , tineri , in marea noastra trufie , credeam pamantul  cutreierat de zei .


Mi-am pastrat din toate  aceste vise rochia neagra *givenchy*- it’s a must -,  toate avem  una , nu-i asa??-  manusile pana la cot , negre,  misterul unei palari, siragul de perle .

Cu nonsalanta unui porttigaret m-am oglindit zile intregi , pana m-a descoperit tata .

Optimismul  nebun , a aparut cand strigam libelulele  , nu m-a parasit niciodata , e ca  rochia neagra ,*a must*.

Eleganta a  venit treptat pe cand paseam ca Alice in tara minunilor .

Nelinistea s-a cuibarit iesita-n zori in slava , sa n-ating gresit drumul nimanui .

Gustul rafinat , l-am cochetat la*Nestor si Capsa*- nici gura-n dulce  tremur-nu  saruta prajiturile atat de delicat.

Holly are candoarea unui copil. Zambet misterios, ascuns sagalnic de  femeie . Are privirea trista a unei zile urate . Exaltari. Taceri incapatanate ale spaimelor ei. Indrazneli sa fure  o masca . Dorinte si vise stralucitoare . Pisica.  O camera ordonata in dezordinea ei.  Pantofi pusi dupa perna, cautati in frigider .Un nas turtit  pe geamul vitrinei.   Breakfast la Tiffany’s -macar odata in viata-….

Holly-a girl can’t read that sort of thing without her lipstick…., my huckleberry friend , Holly .

De mult , ma uitam la filme  cu ochii mariti si  gura cascata . De uimire ! Mai ales cand am descoperit-o pe Meryl Streep ,  in” Kramer vs Kramer” ,  cu nasul rosu  de plans, fara make up .  Tot  atunci am  auzit replica  lui Dustin Hoffman  la :   ” nu te pot angaja , esti overqalified  “… “-exploateaza-ma”…pe  care am inteles-o  mult mai tarziu !  . Mi-a placut  asa  de mult , incat  i-am urmarit  aproape toate  filmele . M-a  fascinat in ” The deer hunter” ; am plans  cu Ea in ” Sophie’s choice ” si m-a uimit accentul ei polish ; am fugit de la servici in fiecare zi timp de o saptamana cat a durat ” festivalul filmului  american ” la  sala Dalles . Trebuia sa  vizitezi expozitia , ca la urma sa ieie bilet  pentru  filmul serii. Aceasta a fost expozitia  cea mai  vizitata  si meritata . Sapte  filme de exceptie. Atunci am  vazut ” Out of Africa”  filmul quintesenta al carierei  Ei ( zic eu ) . A urmat  alt  accent , italian , in ” The bridges of Madison county ” in tandem  cu  Clint Eastwood .  Apoi “Doubt”, un  film cu multe intrebari, la  care directorul te lasa sa-ti raspunzi singur , la sfarsit . Au aparut si  comediile .  Acum stiam multe despre actrita care devenise ” role models” pentru mine  si anul ” nostru”. O MS  sofisticata si rece in ” The devil wears Prada” ; o MS amusanta in “Mamma mia ”  ;  o MS funny in ” Julie & Julia”; o MS divortata in “It’s complicated” .

Cand  scenele erau funny si ma bufnea rasul , putem sa-mi potolesc zgomotul  cu  “popcorn ” , nu de alta ,  sa nu deranjez , si sa nu mai raman cu gura cascata  ! Cred  ca de aceasta s-a inventat mancatul de floricele la  film   ..:)
