All my lovin'


I agree, this is not the most sophisticated graffiti you've seen on PDP, but I thought it was very cute and, when I saw it, I immediately thought of you (all!). So, let me send you all my loving from Paris (remember the Beatles' song?) Is there a better way of starting the week ? I didn't think so ;-) Today is Monday August 31 and it's definitely the end of the summer vacation. Exhibitions, events, street gatherings... I already have a few photos in mind for you!

  1. Thanks a lot Eric for this cute graffitti and song. It makes me think of a recent French song : toi + moi
    here are the French lyrics. That is not the best song but I just thought of it ...

    Paroles de Toi Plus Moi

    Toi plus moi, plus eux plus tous ceux qui le veulent,
    Plus lui plus elle et tout ceux qui sont seuls
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse
    allez venez, laissez faire l'insouciance

    A deux a mille je sais qu'on est capable
    tout est possible tout est réalisable
    on peut s'enfuir bien plus haut que nos rêves
    on peut partir bien plus loin que la grève


    oh Toi plus moi, plus tous ceux qui le veulent,
    Plus lui plus elle plus tout ceux qui sont seuls
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse
    allez venez c'est notre jour de chance

    avec l'envie la force et le courage
    le froid la peur ne sont que des mirages
    laissez tomber les malheurs pour une fois
    allez venez , reprenez avec moi.

    Ho, toi plus moi, plus tous ceux qui le veulent,
    Plus lui plus elle et tout ceux qui sont seuls
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse
    allez venez laissez faire l'insouciance

    je sais c'est vrai ma chanson est naïve
    même un peu bête , mais bien inoffensive
    et même si elle ne change pas le monde
    elle vous invite a entrer dans la ronde

    Oh toi plus moi plus tous ceux qui le veulent
    plus lui plus elle et tous ceux qui sont seuls
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse
    allez venez c'est notre jour de chance

    l'espoir l'ardeur font tous ceux qu'il te faut
    mes bras mon coeur mes epaules et mon dos
    je veux te voir des étoiles dans les yeux
    je veux nous voir insoumis et heureux

    oh toi plus moi plus tous ceux qui le veulent
    plus lui plus elle et tous ceux qui sont seuls
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse
    allez venez, laissez faire l'insouciance

    Oh toi plus moi plus tous ceux qui le veulent
    plus lui plus elle et tous ceux qui sont seuls
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse
    allez venez c'est notre jour de chance

    Oh toi plus moi plus tous ceux qui le veulent
    plus lui plus elle et tous ceux qui sont seuls
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse
    allez venez et entrez dans la danse

    godd night, you'll be on my dreams:)

  2. * sorry for the typos, in the last sentence, and this very long text... in French, but quite easy to understand I think!

  3. I can live with that kind of graffiti. Over here, the graffiti we get is all gang-related as I'm sure most is in France).

    The most interesting graffiti I have seen was in Italy, where someone was adamant that everyone needs to "Stop the war on drugs."

  4. yup I remember the song (actually I have the vinyl 45rpm if that means anything in this digital age).

    Here in the UK its a Bank Holiday - officially the end of summer although the weather is supposed to improve today (its been cold - around 17c for the last few days).

    Looking forward to autumn days in Paris - nearly as good as Spring time

  6. Is it just me Eric, or is your heart in the gutter again. Groan... Excellent shot and the b&w puts it all in great focus.

  8. Merci Eric. The most interesting graffiti I think comes from Brest.

  9. You're right, this isn't the most sophisticated Parisian graffiti you've featured, but it's delightfully heart-felt photo! I'm so happy to hear that Paris is slowly picking up steam after the summer vacation; things should be in full swing by October when I get there!

  10. You're right, Eric, not so sophisticated—but totally charmant! And Monica is right—you HAVE been assez romantique lately. What's up? Looking forward to what's to come!

  11. You are so thoughtful and have such heart, Eric! Thanks for the love!!

  12. Thanks for the love, Eric. Today I need it; returning to work after the summer off. I am a teacher and I know I'll get no sympathy from those who work through the summer, but it is hard to "gear up" after so much time away. On the other hand, it is nice to see colleagues, make a fresh start, and see how much my students have grown over the summer.

  13. LOL, Monica and Michael!

    Eric, this is adorable ~ looks like chalk - graffiti I can easily embrace! Mwah.

  14. Don't worry, Eric, all of us love you!!! thanks to you.
    Today is a very busy day off for me. But I am doing It well and as quick as I can. I so wish I could enjoy the end of the afternoon freely. Back to school for me too Wednesday, Rainie. Wish you super classrooms and students. I am confident this year.

  23. Absolutely lovely, Eric.
    Thank you.
    When I was younger we even crossed hearts to make it feel better.

  24. This is awesome, Eric! Thanks for the thoughts, too. I wish they did chalk heart graffiti here, too. The rain could wash it away, and it could be done all over again!

    You have a great eye and a great heart, Mr. Tenin!!

  26. Mrs. Vandertramp: I was wondering if you knew the connection of your "name" as a tool used in the study of the French Language??? As in "Dr. Mrs. Vandertramp"??? I'll give you a clue. Each letter stands for a verb!
