A movie to watch: La Chamade

If you know me you know I am enamored with French cinema.
Yesterday I had the treat of catching La Chamade while I was playing hooky from work!
(Shhhh, don't tell!  
I had to work until almost midnight last night, anyway, 
so not really feeling too guilty over here;)!)

I love this scene and it really made me laugh at how anti-AMERICAN
it is!

All the talk about relaxing and enjoying and living!  
In a bar full of people at midday, no less!

I was listening to a radio show on NPR the other day with a yoga specialist and he called
stress the "American disease!"  I couldn't agree more with that!

We work, work, work and stress, stress, stress!
We (the lucky folks) get 2 weeks paid vacay a year and Germany, well, they get 6 weeks!
Most of Latin America still takes a 3 hour siesta each day.
Enjoying a break in France means a leisurely cup of coffee with a friend,
not scarfing an energy bar at your desk.

All I can say is,

Solutions, anyone?



  2. I feel the same way. It makes me angry that I have to give up on enjoying life (the only point of living life, right?) in order to afford to live life. Terrible.


Thank you so much for checking out Goldteef! I'd love to hear what you think!
