Monthly Occitan proverb

Deman farà jorn !
Tomorrow is another day!
Expression to be said when postponing thinks to be done but that nobody wants/can do today. This is similar to the expression “mañana!” used in Spanish to postpone something cumbersome.
With the clock on the bell tower of the small village of Saint-Amancet on the slope of the Black Mountain, you could read this little warning for all who tend to be late: Es ouro ! (Time’s up!).

Reminder my grandfather used to make when we were late for the meal while the work was waiting in the farm. And to be sure that all the kids understood him well he insisted “before the right time, it is not yet the time, and after the right time, it is no longer the time!”
