May 22d, 2015: Back to Paris!

Dear May,

so many things happened this month, I couldn’t even catch my breath! Right now I am siting in my living room in Paris, where I arrived yesterday evening; after a long stay in my hometown, at the South of France.

T-shirts, books and shoes are on the floor, and on the chairs. They are witnesses to the way I prepared my suitcase a month ago : should I bring with me this or that? I feel overwhelmed looking at the familiar mess.

Mess or no, I am really happy to be back. I already saw two of my neighbor-friends and the lady-baker with the moustache across the street noticed I have returned; even though she pretended not to.

The weather? Beautiful: not too warm, not too cold. Just good enough to be out. For a walk.

Paris in Spring

  1. I love your story. It’s beautifully told. You’re a great writer. But why did the lady pretend not to have seen you? Not on good terms? Or just one of these difficult or unloving neighbors? Have a great day and enjoy that beautiful city. It’s centuries since I last visited – 1981. Hope some day to visit again. Bye for now.

  2. Ah! J’oubliais (hometown in the south) dans le sud c’est 4 bises non? (En Bretagne si je me rappelle c’est trois!)
