real ones...



recently spent time with an american acquaintance passing through paris.
he:  where are the real french people?
me: what do you mean, real french people?  i gesture at all the french speaking people surrounding us.
he:  you know, the real ones!  long pause, "the white ones?!" 
could not dignify the question with a response.


this quote sums up my attitude these days: in view of the fact that god limited the intelligence of man, it seems unfair that he did not also limit his stupidity.  konrad adenauer

vide-grenier...


yesterday, right below our apartment and stretching for at least eight blocks was a vide-grenier or street yard sale.  many in the neighborhood and surrounding areas came to sell and buy things. the expression, 'one man's trash is another man's treasure' was in evidence. was interesting to discover what people had hoarded and were ready to part with.

les frigos...


visited a friend at les frigos yesterday and found a treasure trove of graffiti.  les frigos was once a huge refrigerated building in the 13th arrondissement used to store food.  nowadays the building with its graffiti covered interior walls is the home of artists, musicians, ceramicists, photographers and much more.
