Odd desire …


My father has lived in the 14eme arrondissement for a long time … it is a wonderful neighborhood which includes the Montparnasse Cemetery.  Many extraordinary folks are resting within its walls, and although it is no more than a five minute walk from his apartment I have never been moved to visit it.  I have a rather indifferent view of cemeteries in general … they are fundamentally anachronistic and have always seemed humorously irrelevant to me.

But I think I’ll take a stroll over there tomorrow … maybe to meet some folks long gone, maybe to escape the infernal drilling down the street.
