Welcome and have fun!

Bonjour et bienvenue à tous !

Ce blog est ouvert à tous ceux qui veulent apprendre et/ou s'amuser en anglais, grâce à des jeux, des chansons, des vidéos et autres activités ludiques. La plupart des documents publiés seront en lien avec ce que nous faisons en classe bien sûr, mais pas seulement : ce blog est un lieu de partage. J'y afficherai des choses qui me paraissent intéressantes et/ou amusantes, comme des bandes-annonces de films, des clips, etc.

Vous pouvez également me contacter si vous voulez que j'affiche quelque chose que vous voulez partager avec vos camarades... mais attention : tout doit se faire en ANGLAIS Les commentaires en français seront effacés, et les messages que je recevrai en français ne seront pas pris en compte.

N'ayez pas peur de faire des erreurs, au contraire !!! C'est le meilleur moyen d'apprendre. N'hésitez pas à corriger vos camarades !

Have fun!!!

The Dash

by Linda Ellis,  1996


I read of a man who stood to speak
at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone,
from the beginning…to the end.

He noted that first came the date of her birth
and spoke of the following date with tears,
but he said what mattered most of all
was the dash between those years.

For that dash represents all the time
that she spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved her
know what that little line is worth.

For it matters not, how much we own,
the cars…the house…the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.

So, think about this long and hard.
Are there things you’d like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
to consider what’s true and real
and always try to understand
the way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more
and love the people in our lives
like we’ve never loved before. 

If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile,
remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.

So, when your eulogy is being read,
with your life’s actions to rehash…
would you be proud of the things they say
about how you spent YOUR dash?
