When Marie-Antoinette writes to the Chinese Empress

I haven’t done an evolving blogpost in a good while; this may be one of them.

The sky at the moment: like the inner part of a conch shell with the deep pink fading up to lightest blue. Cold outside; a longish walk to a coaching appointment awaits. Two astounding pieces of news (no, one astounding, one… no, both in the Moment of Zen category): a symphonic/operatic scam of international dimensions reported in Mediapart*; and also in Mediapart, the safe sheltering in record time of some fifteen thousand travelers stranded in the snow on their way to their skiing holidays. Meanwhile, the shelterless sleep outside in the cold and get denied access to park benches, heated spaces, public showering facilities, etc. Ho-hum, business as usual.


The story? Yes, still on it, adding a tweak here and another there. What can I say? I like spending time with that bunch.

here, for those with French language reading skills. The fiction-writing part of me, itching to get to the marrow of this one. (Yes, the title refers to the article. I’ll explain later, if time permits. If not, ask babel fish for help, the story might be even more astounding that way.)

allez hop.
