Some sweet guy (aka bb) brought me a little sack full of mushrooms. Mmmmmm! I am currently turning some into tempura and plan to add the rest to risotto for dinner.

Went downtown Paris yesterday – we walked to the store at noon and it was glorious we decided we had to go see the sights. We found Les Halles, got lost looking for the Seine, then headed to the Tuileries, where we found a bench (with difficulty…it was very, very full) and sat and enjoyed the breeze and the trees.

I know it must be possible to live in a city and not be reflective, but I don’t really see how.

You spend so much time sitting on the Metro, on buses, in lines, and so many of the people you see doing these things are alone. Frequently reading, but also just sitting silently.

Carefully observing each other by not looking.

Most people have perhaps a half-hour commute every day?

That’s a lot of time to think.

Or to pretend not to.

I am a misanthrope. No one ever believes me, but this seems to prove my point.
