Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Le Clos de Montmartre.......

Too early for the vendage!
this beautifully kept vineyard is a  parcel of land sloping down to
Rue St Vincent in what is known as the old Montmartre

I loved looking across to the little three storied cottage
and imagining Maurice Urtillo sitting at the window
 planning his next sketch of this bohemian neighborhood
or maybe Pierre Renoir - paint brush in hand -
putting the finishing touches to his  "Bal au Moulin de la Galette"
or maybe even Pablo Picasso industriously working at his easel
with one eye looking out onto - Au Lapin Agile - right next door.

Some-times in Paris it's as if time has stood still!

Hey Dianne - I tried to email you and it got rejected, so here's the email copied and pasted:

Hi Dianne!

Thanks for your comment on my blog today ... regarding salt, table salt is really refined sodium and chloride and not good for us. But real crystal salt is essential to us. After reading the book Water & Salt and doing more research, we've replaced all of our table salt with Himalayan crystal salt - it's not expensive, and it's really essential. See if you can check the book out at a library, or pick it up at Amazon ...

Let's stay in touch!

Lovely as usual, Dianne. I've got a 15 day dog-sitting job in Paris in November. 15 days in the 1-bedroom in 15th ...and a lovely dalmation named Belle. Can't wait!

Dianne said...

Delana! Wow! now that would be a dream job - 15 days in Paris - I hope you take your camera along!
