“J’ai une ame solitaire…”

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Creepy.”

Teddy

A while ago I found this head-less teddy in the forest. He was sitting on a branch, up a tree just like that.

I watched the series Twin Peaks years ago. I am French, but I watched the whole thing in English, over a few nights with my husband (who is English). My brain was in English mode and I did find it creepy when I heard “J’ai une ame solitaire” in French in the film.

In the story it’s a suicide note left by the keeper of Laura Palmer’s diaries, but then another character randomly says it later on in the local diner. Each time it made me jump, literally.

A french person would probably say: Je suis une ame solitaire, meaning “I’m a lonely soul”, but here it says “I have a lonely soul”. It’s correct, but it’s not the way most people would naturally say it, so it makes it sound even more spooky!

This photo reminds me of that quote… A lonely, ghost like head-less soggy teddy haunting the woods like une ame solitaire…. I wonder if Bob got something to do with it….

      1. Yes because even if the fox did it… How did it got up there? I just remembered a very creepy video about foxes… do you want me to share it with you? (no one gets hurt… it will only hurt your eyes :)
