Miss Titled (But Not for Long)!

Life, Laughter and Paris has been a little short of something lately -


Life 
That's not it.  I'm still breathing.

Laughter
I'm still laughing at a lot of things.  Most things actually.
Paris
Bingo!  Therein lies le problème.  A little lacking in the "Paris" part of the title.


Well after all these years I'm not changing the title of my blog - that would just be stupid.  Much better to go to Paris and get back to writing about the subject I love best.  I have to wait until the end of September but with ticket in hand, I can make my plans.

I've started a little list -

Museums

I had to be selective because I'm not going to be there that long.  (I can't even remember where the washrooms are in the Musée d'Orsay - what if someone asks me)?

  • Centre Georges-Pompidou (Unless it's an exhibition of neon chairs or something)
  • Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume (I love this place)
  • Musée des Lettres et Manuscrits (I will love this place)
  • Maison de Balzac (I love this place)
  • Maison de Victor Hugo (I love this place)
  • Maxim's Art Nouveau "Collection 1900" (I love this place)
  • Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson (I might love this place - my photographer wants to see it)
  • Musée Bourdelle (I love this place)
  • Musée Carnavalet (I love this place)
  • Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (Sometimes I love this place)
  • Musée d'Orsay (I love this place)
  • Musée de l'Orangerie (I love this place)
  • Musée de Montmartre (I love this place more than some of the others)
  • Musée du Luxembourg (I love this place)
  • Musée Picasso (Is reopening in September after being closed for yonks so I haven't missed anything)
  • Musée Rodin (I love this place)
  • Musée Zadkine  (I love this place)
  • Mémorial du général Leclerc de Hauteclocque et de la Libération de Paris (I'm sure I'll love this place)

I've decided to leave out the Louvre.  Really - that's just a bit too much.  Anyway, the list needs work.  I have to do some reading this summer.

Then of course there's the rue de Seine and area with all the great print galleries.  And of course Shakespeare and Co. for a few books.  Oh, and walks along the Seine and Harry's Bar....  I'm going to sleep for a week before we go to have plenty of energy.

Not only has this Paris starvation diet made me post less, but I haven't been inspired to do any artwork either.  It's definitely time to head to France.
