Photographs of Paris peniches or houseboats lined up along the River Seine. My husband, who typically doesn't notice many details, took these photos of the boats' names while on a solitary stroll. He walks to and from work every day. While he notices some things that are out-of-the-ordinary and tells me about them, he doesn't often photograph them.
Seeing these photos reminded me of a passage from Julia Cameron's book Finding Water. "...Walking, the simplest of tools, is among the most profound. It makes us larger than we are. When we walk, we wake up our consciousness. We enliven our senses. We arrive at a sense of well-being..." "...That still, small voice is automatically amplified a footfall at a time.""Solvitur ambulando," St. Augustine is said to have remarked. "It is solved by walking."
And while I'd prefer to be out walking or at the horse races at Longchamp with David, I am spending the afternoon trying to clear more space in the cave (wine cellar, currently filled with furniture and collectibles, leaving little space for the wine!).
3 Gebroeders - Borekas - Three brothers, according to Merisi's Vienna for Beginners.
Eleanor - That last letter barely fit!
Houbi - Houba - Arabic names? Read Marie-Noelle's comment for a possible explanation.
L'atelier - Perhaps an artist's studio?
Like the boat's name, see you manana with another post! Hope you're having a lovely Sunday.
