Word of the day: flâneur

A friend used this term today to describe me. I’d never heard of it and had to look it up.

Flâneur is a French term meaning ‘stroller’ used by nineteenth-century French poet Charles Baudelaire to identify an observer of modern urban life.

I guess this captures the essence of my Facebook page, especially since I moved to central London two years ago, and most especially during the three lockdowns in London during the coronavirus pandemic.
