Petit nounours rose

Not far from the graffiti stencil I posted on Monday was this little bear, in its meulière (a siliceous sedimentary rock very commonly used in buildings around Paris) 'cavern'... I picked it up and then resisted the urge to bring it home, wash it, darn it... I put it back in place and now I feel bad about it. Do I need therapy?!
Non loin du graffiti de lundi se trouvait ce petit nounours dans sa "caverne" de meulière. Je l'ai soulevé et ai résisté à l'envie de le rapporter à la maison, le laver, le raccommoder... Je l'ai remis en place et maintenant je le regrette. J'ai besoin de consulter à votre avis ?!

Theanne said...

it does look so lost and alone there Ciel! perhaps a thrift store could find a home for this sad little bear!

Jack said...

Let's hope its original owner or another deserving child finds it.

Regina K said...

Maybe the child placed it there for another child to find.

Bob Crowe said...

No, you don't. You did the right thing. Someone had a reason to put the bear there.

Randy said...

What a great find. I probably would have take him somewhere better too. I hear you. After class tonight I am dragging and could sleep for a week.

Was the bear placed? Or tossed? That's the quandary.

I vote that it should stay.

Olivier peut te donner la garde d'Amédée lorsqu'il suis les meetings

It is a hard decision. Be easy on yourself.

Je crois que j'y retournerais .. J'ai adopté un petit lapin comme ça, sur une aire d'autoroute en Champagne..On va consulter à deux?..:o)

I seems to be intentionally tucked away. I think you did the right thing, it's there for a purpose.

Neat patterns in the stone.

Lowell said...

You shouldn't give me straight lines like that! ;-)

You're just conflicted as to what was the right decision. But you've got to consider the bear's feelings.

Cute. That rock looks much like the rock here in central Florida!

VP said...

You know I like very much this kind of pictures!

brattcat said...

you may need therapy, but not for this. your inclination to repair the bear was motivated by kindness. your decision to leave it in situ was an act of sensitivity to all parties concerned. perhaps you could come here and stitch up a few of my bears? you can stretch out on my couch and sew as you unburden yourself.

JM said...

I wonder what's the story behing this. Cool find.

Birdman said...

Probably!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Brattcat's offer sounds like just the 'therapy' you need Ciel! Poor little bear out there in the cold, no I'm only kidding!!

Halcyon said...

Poor sweet bear! I would have been tempted to take her home too. Some child is probably heartbroken without her favorite toy. :(

joo said...

No Ciel! You need to go back and take this little one home:)

il a sûrement trouvé preneur :)
