Theme Day this month is 'Changes' and this photograph, taken at Le Balico in Menton reminded me that Martini has changed the shape of its bottles. Remember the old Martini bottle? - you see it on the left. And below the new one. I love the old one, same as I love the old Martini poster in the photo. But everything changes unless we believe, 'Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.'
Henri-Louis Bergson, the French Philosopher who in 1927 won the Nobel prize for Literature wrote:
'Exister, c'est changer ; changer, c'est mûrir ; mûrir, c'est se créer sans cesse.'
Note: Since posting this, sadly Le Balico has been sold and is under new management with different decor.
