Shakespeare and Company book bag, books and coffee for some relaxing reading. Well, if I can’t visit Shakespeare and Company in Paris, then at least I can create a Shakespeare and Company reading atmosphere with their book bag. I have a book bag filled with books, a stack of books for my coffee and a book to read, thus, life is good.
London quotes in London parks for weekly post of December 4th to December 8th by Author Scot Fin.
“London is a roost for every bird.” Benjamin Disraeli, Lothair. Apparently so, and a walk through St. James Park will provide the evidence. What I didn’t know, however, was that Benjamin Disraeli, known as a politician and two time Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, was also a novelist. Lothair, which is one of many books he wrote, is described as philosophical fiction.
Museum images, Musée d’Orsay for weekly post of November 27th to December 1st by Author Scot Fin.
Travel time again so, with a quick moment of brightness peeking through those clouds, we better get to Musée d’Orsay to avoid the rain. Actually, more than to avoid the rain, Musée d’Orsay is my favourite larger museum in Paris. It’s large enough to spend a substantial amount of enjoyable time, however, not too large, like the one on the other side of the Seine, to be overwhelming for a one day visit.
Book images from Paris and London for weekly post of November 20th to November 24th by Author Scot Fin.
I finished last week visiting a Saint Germain en Laye cat so I thought I’d start this week moving along to centre-ville and the market. The Saint Germain market, I think, is one of the best but somehow I ended up at the book stall. Maybe it was because it reminded me of how I have my books arranged. At any rate, if you desire visiting a French market, you’d be hard pressed to find a better one. Just the RER A with the Saint Germain en Laye terminus from Paris on, as per the Saint Germain website, Sundays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 8:30am to 1pm.” I used the website because I can never remember the weekdays. For me, however, the Sunday market is the best.
Cats related photos for weekly post of November 13th to November 17th by Author Scot Fin. Full size slideshow at the bottom of this post.
So, we don’t have a real cat but considering my wife’s current read and the other cats around, I think they might be ganging up on me. The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide is a book we first heard of while in France. I understand it is a bestseller there but I hadn’t heard too much about it here. My wife, however, decided to give it a read or maybe just put the hint out there. Hmm.
Thames River Walk photos for weekly post of November 6th to November 10th by Author Scot Fin. Full size slideshow at the bottom of this post.
I think I’m going to put on my travel hat and go for a walk down the River Thames. I’m going to walk because it looks like I’m going to miss my train from Charring Cross. So close but yet so far because between the Golden Jubilee Bridges runs all the train tracks over the Thames. At least from the Golden Jubilee Bridge I’m on, I got a good view of the station and its more modern office building part, Embankment Place.
Writer Quotes photos for weekly post of October 30th to November 3rd by Author Scot Fin. Full size slideshow at the bottom of this post.
I imagine all writers think about being cut out to be a writer. With this thought and some doubt, I sat down at sunset by my trusted Underwood to do some writing. Is there a better way to write these days than an Underwood? Strangely, I noticed an old note sitting there. How did it get there? It turned out, however, to be just what I needed. How did Hemingway know?
Eiffel Tower photos for weekly post of October 23rd to the 27th by Author Scot Fin. Full size slideshow at the bottom of this post.
I was thinking, really thinking, about doing a famous Parisian landmark theme. I couldn’t quite figure out which one. As much thinking as I could do, however, it was just escaping me. It was like if I just looked over my shoulder it would be there, the idea would be clear. Oh well, I guess I’ll just settle for some random Paris image. Sorry.
Lisbeth Salander book photos for weekly post of October 9th to the 13th by Author Scot Fin. Full size slideshow at the bottom of this post.
Yeah, my writing has gone like that over the last couple days as well, so I decided to read a bit more. After “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and the rest of the Millennium trilogy, I’ve decided to give “The Girl in the Spider’s Web” a try. Time to see if Lisbeth Salander is still Lisbeth Salander in David Lagercrantz’s ‘The Girl’ world. First though, I’ll reflect with the beginning of the series (only one I have in a print edition) and a cup of coffee.
