Remembering, Missing, Continuing

Deep Thank You to Marti who sent me the link to 
the podcast of the Memorial for Michelle 
I know many of you have seen this at Jude's and listened
in the privacy of your own world, but I felt the need to place it here as well.
It helped to listen. 
It helped to see Jude's lovely photo of Michelle.

We are all missing Michelle, sharing in that.
I clicked over to Michelle's blog from one of the related memorial posts in my Google search.
It landed on this post  of hers, 
which seemed so fitting for now. 
So many times, I think of something to share with her,
something to seek her opinion about, to spend more time with her.
More Time.
I felt what her response would have been to my last post of J's song.
I feel her with me, with us still.
 
The video above is a perfect example of a find I would have shared with her.
We emaled each other cool and interesting links.
I'll miss those emails from her.

I did a search for this song after hearing it in two different commercials.
Both of them, pretty fun.
I had no idea what the song was and Ta-Da...
I not only found it, 
I discovered it was of course more well known that I'd guessed 
and learned it has been used in more than one movie.

Non, je ne regrette rien

No, nothing at all
Non, rien de rien

No, I do not regret anything
Non, je ne regrette rien

Nor the good that was done to me
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait

Nor the evil
Ni le mal

All that I care
Tout ça m'est bien égal

No, nothing at all
Non, rien de rien

No, I do not regret anything
Non, je ne regrette rien

It is paid, swept away, forgotten
C'est payé, balayé, oublié

I do not care about the past
Je me fous du passé
With my memories
Avec mes souvenirs

I started the fire
J'ai allumé le feu

my sorrows, my pleasures
Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs

I do not need them anymore
Je n'ai plus besoin d'eux

Swept away the loves
Balayé les amours

With their tremolos
Avec leurs trémolos

Swept away forever
Balayé pour toujours

I go back to zero
Je repars à zéro
No, nothing at all
Non, rien de rien

No, I do not regret anything
Non, je ne regrette rien

Nor the good that was done to me
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait

Nor the evil
Ni le mal

All that I care
Tout ça m'est bien égal

No, nothing at all
Non, rien de rien

No, I do not regret anything
Non, je ne regrette rien

Because my life
Car ma vie

Because my joys
Car mes joies

Today
Aujourd'hui

It begins with you
Ça commence avec toi

Isn't that lovely? 
To live a full, rich life?
To have no regrets?
 This is something to consider, yes?

May you hold near
May you live well
May you stay connected
