Georges Levy's word


Since 2008 the crisis makes us feel low, it is completely obvious.
Industry is going bad, unemployment is over 10%, in other words this is a tragedy making french people feel very low and avoiding them to struggle cleverly. You never get good advice from panick. We should be prepared from an early age to the advertisement of a domestic bank « because the world is moving »…

So, if we consider History as a serious matter, we would have noticed it and we would notice that we don’t live such a terrible time.
And I insist, it is good living in France. It’s a shame that most of us, dear reader, don’t realize it. It is true that the harsh winter slightly tetanizes us, the lack of sun is not very good for the synthesis of our vitamin D and the rain makes us all grey. We should be happy about that because we were promised the global warming with all its disasters, the lack of snow : slides would be over !
Worse, the lack of water to quench one’s thirst…
We would be left with our eyes to cry and to admire with nostalgy « les chasseurs dans neige » by Peter Bruegel or even lighter « Cannes l’hiver » by Van Dongen. So, this issue from the ecologists preceded the one of financial crisis and we can read here and there a few discreet reports explaining that finally, no, we made a mistake, maybe our brave planet will get colder, the Gulf Stream, this famous giant snake crossing oceans, is unreliable, as always for ages…  so we can doubt some scientists happily relayed by bad fortune tellers.
As for the real ecology (not the one from les Verts which is only political), it is a new religion which, alas, like every religion can be excessive but may allow irresponsible idiots to finally respect the planet which they live on…
Each season there is a renewal because you have already forgotten the old disasters promised a few months ago, like bird flu, the barrel of oil at very high prices !!! We are in the fog but we are well thrilled, as well as our descendants to come who already worry in our ovules or in our spermatozoons. Well, what does it have to do with art.

The art to cheer you up or at least to try. « La fabrique des rêves » at the Musée d’ Art Moderne with Giorgio de Chirico may help us to escape. So let us dream, with or without Giorgio, a simple dream. To wake up in the morning and smile to life and say, the hell with moral breakers, brain pollution, I live therefore I am…
Everything is still possible !!!
