Life of a solivagant

the traveller

“Bruno Catalano (b. 1960), France
Nicko, 2017 Bronze sculpture
A suitcase, a man. He seizes it, and goes to the unknown.  The traveller is this man left to himself, a man propelled in the infinity of time and space.  His house is nothing more than a suitcase and his being, gradually, will be stripped of all that he believed indispensable, all his self so cleverly built by our societies.  He is no longer the man of a world, but the man in the world, still imbued with his culture but become fragile in the face of immensity.  His quest will not be without damage.  Man defragmented, destabilized, stripped of his bearings, he walks towards his salvation as much as towards his run. Everything will now be reinvented.  This traveller escapes from himself, to meet his unknown land.”

Joke of the day – Who should brew the coffee

images_fresh_brew_coffee

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning.

The husband said, “You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.”

Wife replies, “No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.”

Husband replies, “I can’t believe that, show me.”

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says: “HEBREWS”

Joke of the day – First aid

images_female_doctor

When a car skidded on wet pavement and struck a light pole, several bystanders ran over to help the driver.

A woman was the first to reach the victim, but a man rushed in and pushed her back. “Step aside, lady,” he barked. “I’ve taken a course in first aid.”

The woman watched him for a few minutes, then tapped his shoulder. “Pardon me,” she said. “But when you get to the part about calling a doctor, I’m right here.”

Speaker: This is terrible! I’m the speaker at this banquet and I forgot my false teeth!

Man: I happen to have an extra pair; try these.

Speaker: Too small!

Man: Well, try this pair.

Speaker: Too big!

Man: I have one pair left.

Speaker: These fit just fine. It sure is lucky to sit next to a dentist!

Man: I’m not the dentist. I’m an undertaker.

Joke of the day – First job

A young man hired by a supermarket reported his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said, “Your first job will be to sweep out the store.”

“But I’m a university graduate,” the young man replied indignantly.

“Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t know that,” said the manager. “Here, give me the broom – I’ll show you how.”
