    I told you…

    Again we hear about what a rebel Monet is. And now you know how to say “I told you that” in French. You heard that word right?

    I’ll repeat myself, it’s becoming my mantra. Can’t make a dent in history without being a little rebelious. How can I practice being rebellious? I’ll just keep pushing on my own way to power through learning French. I told you I was going to be tenacious with this project.

    Glad to see you’re still here, too. We can all do to be a little more like Monet.

    Even now, I sit looking out over the Bosphourous and Istanbul while writing about Monet and sipping a çörçil (a “churchill”). That’s lemon juice and sparkling mineral water, for the uninitiated. It’s lemony. And good. One of the biggest things I get from my wife daily is that we don’t need to listen to no, or the naysayers. We can do what we want. It’s her that is the genius in our marriage. She supports my goals, and I support yours. Let’s keep learning together.
