ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Postcard from Paris!

Well how would you like to be in Paris right now? It's pretty cool to be revisiting my favourite city yet again. The final week of our tour. This time we're just chillin' and thrillin' at the street life and our best haunts. Here's a couple of pics for you to enjoy. BTW my American blogging friends, this city is full of American teachers. Even at the hotel we're staying at. Lovely people who are so jealous of the long vacations Aussies enjoy, rather than their 2-week jaunts.


Who put the haute in couture? Not moi!


I love the way Paris does homeless. Nice guy. Love the dogs.

Shakespeare & Co to the rescue for a little reading material. Bought Hemingway's  A Moveable Feast just to do the genuine Paris trip. Then I went and visited Hemingway's old apartment, or at least got to the front door.

Hope you enjoyed your Paris Visite!

Au revoir!

Denise

  4. Loved seeing you! Oh, Paris. I started A Moveable Feast but had to take it back to the library before I finished it. It's the book to buy in Paris. How ironic that last night I started reading a copy of The Sun Also Rises that I recently "won" from a blogger. Hemingway was the master of "lean, athletic prose."

    Enjoy this last wonderful week of your trip. It will be good to have you back. (And I love the pic of you with your white hair. I love white hair. Have to, because that's close to my color now!) You're gorgeous!
