I walked down the streets I used to walk everyday to go to school – Read “Il faut se mefier des mots” on the familiar building thinking – how many times before had I walked by these words and read them out loud in my head as a teenager? They made sense then, they make sense now, nothing has changed.
Stopped for lunch in Lao Siam for the usual coco rice noodles, boeuf séché and salads…nothing has changed.
Nothing lasts, there are no certainties, we grow to accept that but it is so refreshing when little details remain unchanged.
This picture below is a view of Belleville in 1740…Paris looked like a village then and Belleville pure countryside!
It can be seen in Musée Carnavalet.
