THE PARTY IS OVER…
By Bernard Bujold –
I accepted two or three times the invitation by Lise Thibault and what surprised me was the passion of the other guests. They were all very important people in our society but they were doing “genuflexion” before Lise and considered it an immense honor to be invited to her events.
They considered Lise even more noble than themselves!
When she arrived in her garden, all the dignitaries stood up like soldiers…
This is what I find hypocritical because the guest dignitaries have benefited as much from the gifts of Lise as Lise herself…
Me, I never went back to her party after the two or three times because I found it too fake and a bit comical!
However I must say that I still kept the golf balls she had given me…
Lise took advantage of the system but the thousands of dignitaries who accepted her gifts (party on the grass, sale of art works by artists to Lise who then she gave back to her many visitors, etc).
Lise gave happiness to several and these accepted “the favor”…
Lise was like the drunkard at the bar who pays drinks to other people. When the free tour is over and the drunk has no more money, the boss of the bar throws the drunk out!
My conclusion: We must beware of dignitaries because they are often not more worthy than the drunkard on the street!

THE SILENT FORCES OF SOCIETY
By Bernard Bujold-
There are in our society sleeping forces that sometimes only unfold during a special evening or event…
This is the case of the Catholic Church in Montreal!
Although I am not a Catholic practitioner, since I grew up in a presbytery in Gaspe with my aunt who was the priest’s servant, and wanted me to become a priest… , I always kept an affection for things from the church.
Thus, I like to visit the Montreal Cathedral Mary Queen of the World where I appreciate the calm and beauty of the lighting.
Generally, there are at most a hundred faithful but sometimes, on the occasion of a special feast, there are thousands of people gathered together. This was the case on Thursday June 15, 2017 as part of the Corpus Christi (FÊTE-DIEU).
I had the pleasure to take photos of the ceremony and especially to discover that there are dormant forces in our society, like those of the Church…
I did not want to disturb Bishop Christian Lépine to ask him to bless my replica watch of Pope Francis! It will be for a next time, quieter…
THE PASSAGE OF TIME
By Bernard Bujold –
The passage of time has always brought me deeply to reflect.
We live a moment and, a few hours or days, months or years later, this moment will be no more than a memory.
Yet memory has indeed existed in a real universe but it becomes completely virtual. May it be the environment of our childhood; our loves; our challenges; our passions; our lusts; our happiness and our misfortunes; everything will eventually become memory and virtual!
Our memory is probably an approximation to eternity but one cannot live in memory, so one cannot live either in the eternity which prevents humans from being eternal…
And to further complicate our live in regard of the passage of time, a human brain which is normally wired would be oriented towards the continual planning of the events of our future, outside the now moment. A brain that stops planning for the future bring back the human to the status of the animal whose brain is only oriented towards the search for the next meal. Three frequently used objects in our everyday life illustrate well the passage of time. The clock, the mirror and the camera. I had fun with these three objects trying to illustrate my personal passage of time!
