We’ve all been through that frustrating moment when you think of all the great things you should have said during that conversation that has already ended!
Why is it that we’re always reaching for what we just cannot have? And yes, this ‘exquisite pain’ is, unfortunately for some, an addictive sensation.
This term flourished in the 19th century, and it referred to a literary man who would spend his time leisurely exploring Parisian streets. The expression was rooted even more by poet Charles Baudelaire who often used the figure of the flâneur throughout his poems.
