In the language of Shakespeare
On this Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, Bambi would like to warmly thank you for your incredible support, whether in the form of a word or a gesture of kindness, courage, fairness, openness, generosity, and… especially humanity. This is called love in Bambi’s dictionary. For her, love is simply the essence of life. THANK YOU from the bottom of her heart!
Dans la langue de Molière
En ce congé de l’Action de Grâce au Canada, Bambi aimerait vous remercier chaleureusement pour votre incroyable soutien que ce soit en forme d’un mot ou d’un geste de gentillesse, courage, justice, ouverture d’esprit, generosité et… surtout d’humanité. Ceci s’appelle de l’amour dans le dictionnaire de Bambi. Pour elle, l’amour est tout simplement l’essence de la vie. MERCI du fond du coeur!
To continue on a musical note, first Bambi will offer you a fun kids’ song to highlight the season in French. This will be followed by another kids’ song in English. Finally, Bambi will share a more serious and surely beautiful song in Arabic by Lebanon’s unifying pride, Fairouz. This song is taken from one of the musicals of the Rahbani Brothers (1973), entitled “Al Mahata” [“The Station”/”La gare“]. Bambi was surprised to hear herself singing it while cleaning the house, even if she hasn’t heard it for ages :). Seriously, Fairouz’ song, Imani Satwe, is meaningful because it talks about someone’s faith in life. “Faith in whatever life will bring… faith in the spring that will come after the storms“, perhaps also faith, if you wish, in the whatever you strongly believe in or not (atheism, your own spirituality, God, Allah, G-d, Goddesses, love, respect for all, science, politics, ideologies, nothing or all/some of the latter).
To conclude this post, and as far as she is concerned, Bambi’s faith in life has always been in humanity. For the latter, she will keep singing (despite her ugly voice!). In other terms, until her last breath in life… even when too frail to clean the house :).
Happy Thanksgiving to all/Bonne Action de Grâce!
