Message Monday: Etre Toujours Ivre

This weeks Message Monday centers around the idea of necessary intoxication. However, we don’t mean guzzling down copious amounts of wine or liquor. Rather enjoying the virtues that life has to offer. In a world that always promotes being one step ahead and never resting, 19th century French poet Charles Baudelaire had it right when he alluded to necessary relaxation. The originally text was written in French, but we decided to post a small English translation at for you to read below. And remember, “be drunken continually! With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you will”.
