And for a little inspiration if you’re feeling lazy and slightly worn out from Saturday night.. a little poem for you:
Adapted by T&S from Charles Baudelaire "Be Drunk" )1821-1867
“You have to be always drunk. That’s all there is to it—it’s the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk
But on what? Wine, poetry. virtue, or Punch... as you wish. But be drunk.
And if this cold winter Sunday, on the steps of a palace or the green grass of a ditch, in the mournful solitude of your room, you wake again, drunkenness already diminishing or gone, ask the wind, the wave, the star, the bird, the clock, everything that is flying, everything that is groaning, everything that is rolling, everything that is singing, everything that is speaking. . .ask what time it is and wind, wave, star, bird, clock will answer you: “It is time to be drunk! So as not to be the martyred slaves of time, be drunk, be continually drunk! On wine, on poetry, on virtue, or on Punch as you wish.”
