Place des Vosges Paris France Restaurants and Cafes

Place des Vosges is a favourite spot for us in Paris as it holds many memories as a stopping point on my ‘guided tours’ with some very dear friends. Sadly the gatherings done today would be smaller and reflective but a visit to Paris is always joyous and absent friends would want it no otherContinue reading “Place des Vosges Paris France Restaurants and Cafes”

Our Love of Paris and why Joni Mitchell just made us go

As I was getting to the completion of my writing about our times in Paris over many years my thoughts turned to how to start or introduce what is a collection of stories and personal recollections. I thought really that I have to explain why we went to Paris at all and why it came to mean so much.

Is Paris more Beautiful in the Rain?

This feels like a good subject to ponder as publish my new book about Paris although I have a feeling I will be writing more about Paris in the future – the story is not fully told nor has it ended. At the end of ‘Midnight in Paris’ Gil and his new love Gabrielle head off to a new beginning and they walk across the Seine on Pont Alexandre III unconcerned by the falling rain, in fact to them ‘Paris is more beautiful in the rain’. Whether Hemingway ever shared the same romantic vision of Paris we do not know though somehow I doubt that he did.

In search of Hemingway Midnight in Paris Restaurant La Maison de Verlaine

Writing about Paris throws up too many ideas and most of them are very personal and I wonder does anyone want to read such personal memoirs. Which brings me to Hemingway and the Woody Allen film ‘Midnight in Paris’ which is basically a Paris travel advertisement ( and no less enjoyable for that) based on Hemingway’s book ‘A Moveable Feast’. We watched the film again for about the fiftieth time over Christmas. Hemingway’s book is a memoir of his time in Paris in the 1920’s with his first wife Hadley and their young son.
