TJ Paris is in first this week from Western Australia. Poor man was waiting for the challenge to come out and found out it was going at a random time today. 🙂
Life is too short to drink bad wine
Hermes soars atop the column on the Place de la Bastille.
Rise up citizens,
to save civilisation
with human kindness
Ronovan’s of Ronovan Writes has offered this week’s prompts of Rise and Save.
One of the most enduring symbolic actions of the French Revolution was the storming of the Bastille. The people of Paris nobly liberating the tragically prisoners trapped in this vile and noisome fortress. So complete was the destruction of this symbol of Royal oppression that not a stone remains. Then in July 1830 the Parisians again got all revolutionary and this column was put on top of the location where the Bastille stood to show the Parisians were revolting (again!).
How I can picture the iron gates of the Bastille being torn down and the poor, wrongly imprisoned scions of the people flooding out in their hundreds while the vile Aristos shuddered (quite rightly) in their gilded palaces.

You are most kind Ronovan! Now off at last into the arms of Morpheus. Or as we Aussies say…”Cheers Mate!” 🙂
