Oser (oh-zay) means “to dare.” It can be negative, as in “How dare you!”, but I’d rather think of how it is used in a positive sense. The above quotation embodies the positive sense of oser. What would I dare to do? I think I’d open a café cum photography gallery on the Île St. Louis in the heart of Paris. I’d have congenial guests and sell enough café crèmes and glossy pictures of France to pay my bills with sufficient left over for a more travel. But, unfortunately, businesses do fail every day – even those run by people with much more skill, heart, and backing than me. So, I stay Stateside, work in Paris in the summer, and dream of what it would be like to live there full time. What would you dare to do? Are you doing it already?
