versailles

tomorrow i am off to chateau de versailles. i truly can't wait. i am in awe of the history and size of the place. i've been reading antonia fraser's marie antoinette, so everything there will be so fresh in my historical imagination. if time permits, i will also visit her estate.
expect many more pictures!!

it is so incredibly beautiful...but also so terribly tragic...
i walked through rooms i know were bloodstained with death and birth and death. the revolution was really rough on the place....

Roma

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
