What interests do you have in french?

Serge Gainsbourg, Especially French New Wave, curious about existentialism and French philosophers. Patisserie. cuisine. But I'd also like to see Brigitte Bardot and other things. Camus and Voltaire. I especially love Voltaire. Also interested in French plays and more controversial and experimental French lit. Now as far as reading in the original language itself, that level would be difficult. At some time, I may have read "The Prince" that way? Julie Delpy and Jean Reno are wonderful. I haven't spoken French in several years, very rusty, and very badly. I do speak it and sometimes have written poetic phrases in French because the expression may seem more romantic to me dependent on how it works for me at the time of inspiration then happily sometimes after I've written it and put it away for awhile I still like it.


I haven't spoken French in several years, l'il rusty. I am married and have many interests. I've visited Canada, but not France, Switzerland or any of the lovely tropical islands in which French may be spoken. I would love to travel to NOLA.
