Aujourd'hui, c'est un jour merveilleux

Lunch at Mon Vieil Ami, on L'Isle St Louis, consisting of seafood and vegetables en croute, a glass of chardonnay and coffee, 26 Euros. Five books from Shakespeare and Co, 77 Euros. Ticket for a concert at Sainte Chapelle, 25 Euros. A day spent marvelling at stained glass windows and gorgeous unicorn tapestries, eating fabulous French food, chatting with an English girl at Shakespeare and Co who is a fellow Jeanette Winterson fan, climbing the tower at Notre Dame to get a gargoyle's eye view of the city, and listening to Vivaldi while sitting inside a veritable jewel of a chapel: priceless.

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
