desolee or d�©sol�©e

For me, living in a big city is always a challenge. I do much better outside urban areas. Today I needed to get away, so I went up to the railroad tracks which run through the middle of the city. I often walk my dog here. You can go for miles, and never really know you are in the middle of a big city. It is a world away from everything else.

desolee needs correct French accents, which I cannot seem to do here. It is the only word for how you feel sometimes--I gues desolated is the proper translation, but it is not right.

nige, sometimes it happens. nice to be able to express it with a photo, just like jumping is so joyful.

nige says:

indeed. glad you got away. btw, you could try copying the word and pasting from a search engine. thats how i managed "pièce de résistance". :)

Perhaps "disconsolate" would be an acceptable English word for the feeling (which I familiar with, also).

nige. I pasted it and put it in the title. my keyboard speaks french, but the blog does not seem to. or at least whatever I am doing does not work. no worries. end of the day.

Désolé is like sorrowful, isn't it? One is désolé when one has made an error or offended...

I don't know how it works.

when you feel un peu desolee, derangee, then you just go to bed and hope it snows in the morning.

Eh, ben, sois pas dérangée. Régarde la colonne 'Decimal'; quand tu veux écrire "é" tu tapes "&" et puis; "eacute;" (si je l'écris entière ici tu ne vois que é mais quand tu l'écris, faites-le comme un mot, comme ca; "&machinbidulechouette;".)
C'est un peu lourd, mais ca marche quand même... ;)
