Tenir tendrement, bercer
: to cradle
En regardant bien cette photo, on dirait que les fèves, les artichauts, et compagnie sont en train de tenir tendrement ma maman. Looking at this photo, you could say the favas, the artichokes, and the rest are cradling my mom.
A DAY IN A FRENCH LIFE... by Kristin Espinasse
Today is "Wordless Wednesday"... except it's Thursday. Please have a look at the photo, above, of my Mom in the garden….and would it be possible for you to write today's story? You know, your interpretation of Mom in the garden, her thoughts at that moment etc. Make up something good and mix in as many French words as you wish!
Mom and I will be anxiously awaiting all of your stories. Just post your words here in the comments box. Mom loves this idea; actually she made most of this post up while I was emptying the dishwasher.
I would like to thank Laurel Zuckerman, author of Sorbonne Confidential. See her Paris Writers News for our talk about publishing and France. I especially had fun with the question Do you have a favorite word in French? Read the intervew here.
