THE DIARY OF ANAIS NIN VOLUME SIX 1955-1966
“All of Paris is caressable, La ville caresse, la ville caressante, with its outer life all grace and wit, at heart a mystic lover, a philosopher, a man of taste. In its ancient decor, it is always youthful because its source of life is inner, and always renewed. The past is so vivid that it fills the streets. It is full. the magic of its unity and harmony of colors and textures and styles. When there were contrasts, they were contrasts between medieval somberness and modern gaiety. “

I like it. Good Post
Yes, I can see you there, head back on a chaise lounge, surrounded by all those slender, beautiful men, straight and gay, attending to your every need…after you’ve finished your absinthe and your daily dispatch to us, your oh so envious readers…
I am saving for this trip, dreaming of the descriptions you shared.
