Tomorrow is the start of my spring holidays in Australia and I’m so excited. I can’t stop smiling at the thought of sleeping in and indulging in random creative projects that I don’t have time for during the work week. Yay!!!
So things will be quiet around here until the second week of October while I get some much needed rest.
Until then I will leave you with one more series of black and white photos from an Autumn stroll through Paris.
Like this splendid bicycle that begs to be unlocked and driven to the nearest market, its basket filled to overflowing with fresh flowers, crusty bread, and an array of perfectly ripe fruits and veggies.
I love Parisian parks in Autumn, their broad pathways carpeted with crunchy leaves and lined with benches perfect for writing, musing and people-watching.
One of my favorite places to walk is along the Seine, watching artists of every imaginable race and background capturing the beauties of Paris with brushes and pencils.
I like wandering through old churches, around old buildings, admiring the exquisitely beautiful statues standing serenely in parks and alcoves.
And is there anything more inspiring that scouring the numerous bookstalls along the Seine, fingering old tomes, leafing through art books, music scores, and French novels looking for treasures.
Wishing you a beautiful Spring or Autumn, wherever you are. xo
“It was such a spring day as breathes into a man an ineffable yearning,
a painful sweetness,
a longing that makes him stand motionless,
looking at the leaves or grass,
and fling out his arms to embrace he knows not what.”
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.”
