Nothing makes me want to go to Paris more.
A typical breakfast at the dining commons (this is after eating hash browns and two pieces of French toast.) Captain crunch, orange juice (not very good), and A Moveable Feast, which takes place in Paris, so we have now come full circle.
First time going to class not having done the reading this quarter.
I made it about four weeks without getting behind…is there any way to learn to read faster but still retain information? I hate rushing through books, especially when I like them, which I do. Hemingway’s great. I feel so lucky that I get to read him for school and I don’t want to speed through his words.
A Moveable Feast, Hemingway, pg 84.
I underlined this with pen, pressing hard…I don’t know what else to do to show how much I love and appreciate the sentence. (Picture doesn’t relate to where Hemingway is, but it’s changing light in New York City.)
When I go to Paris,
I will have tea at La Closerie des Lilas. If I really want to be an extreme literary snob, I will bring A Moveable Feast with me. It’ll be perfect. I can already see the pictures.
“The Closerie des Lilas was the nearest good café when we lived in the flat over the sawmill at 113 rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs, and it was one of the best cafés in Paris. It was warm inside in the winter and in the spring and fall it was very fine outside with the tables under the shade of the trees on the side where the statue of Marshal Ney was, and the square, regular tables under the big awnings along the boulevard.”
