Leaving for Paris

14 Jul

“Paris is the greatest temple ever built to material joys and the lust of the eyes.” – Henry James

“Cities have sexes: London is a man, Paris a woman, and New York a well-adjusted transsexual.” ~Angela Carter

Today I leave for Paris. I arrive tomorrow. Time zones–what can you do?

I am more or less packed, I have printed off my boarding passes (ah, the internet) and now I am biding my time.

I took the dog for a walk and tried to explain to her that I was travelling to another country.
“There are other countries?” she asked, a bit incredulous.
“Yes,” I told her.
“Just one?”
“No, Domino, there are thousands of other countries.”
She was speechless. So I explained, “Where else do you think we get English Bulldogs, German Shepherds and French Poodles?”
This seemed to clarify things for her.

Ideally, I hope to check in from Paris from time to time. I love the idea of dispatches from Paris. I’ll see what I can do about that.

At any rate, I plan to take notes and pictures–so I should have some stories to tell.

Until my next blog: Au revoir pour le moment!

“In America only the successful writer is important, in France all writers are important, in England no writer is important, and in Australia you have to explain what a writer is.”-Geoffrey Cottrell
