retrouvailles

beDOTwater

When I think of a reunion, I imagine two long-lost lovers running towards one another, limbs akimbo as fireworks play in the background. But in reality, encounters between loved ones are much simpler and meaningful than that. Rooted in the word “retrouver,” which literally means “to find something again,” the French word retrouvailles is a unique
When I think of a reunion, I imagine two long-lost lovers running towards one another, limbs akimbo as fireworks play in the background. But in reality, encounters between loved ones are much simpler and meaningful than that. Rooted in the word “retrouver,” which literally means “to find something again,” the French word retrouvailles is a unique term that describes the happiness of meeting someone that is very dear to you after a long time. Rather than being this epic moment of reunion conjured up in the imagination, retrouvailles captures the magic that is found in those mundane moments of real human connection.

Retrouvailles, Vous Me Manquez, and Saudade were all part of a series of beat tapes, saying goodbye to my most recent relationship. This beat tape, “strangers” represents the culmination and closure of that love I have for that person. I’m not a quitter, and I might look like a chump for saying this, but I stuck around long after I should have -
Retrouvailles, Vous Me Manquez, and Saudade were all part of a series of beat tapes, saying goodbye to my most recent relationship. This beat tape, “strangers” represents the culmination and closure of that love I have for that person. I’m not a quitter, and I might look like a chump for saying this, but I stuck around long after I should have - trying to get clarity, trying to continue a deep and special friendship, trying to prove myself and my love. It wasn’t until recently that someone pointed out that I shouldn’t have to work so hard to keep someone around. So I let go, because the fact of the matter is if they wanted to be here they would. If they still loved you, they’d listen and care. Alas they don’t, so from strangers to lovers, to strangers we went. This beat tape is me saying I love you for the last time 🙏🏾 and moving on to whats meant for me hopefully. To you, distant stranger.
