L’amour et la créativité: prendre deux

My post “L’amour et la Créativité” has far and away been a favorite of readers, so in honor of Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg, France’s famous lovers ~ here’s an encore.

“A bond ungovernable

Connection impermeable

To time, distance, silence

As uncontrollable as the elements

Memories of it still,

refuse to be quieted”

~From “The Equation of Us” (link to poem) Lisa Chapman ©2007

“My only contribution to him, apart from inspiring his songs, was telling him not to shave and giving him a diamond to wear around his neck. He had a dandified quality, and I thought it so sophisticated to have a diamond against his bare chest.” ~Jane Birkin

“My mother was right: When you’ve got nothing left, all you can do is get into silk underwear and start reading Proust.” ~Jane Birkin

“Gainsbourg lives on through his work, through Birkin’s ongoing projects, and through the love that she quite clearly still has for him.”  ~Will Hodgkinson/Guardian.co.uk ©2003
