two thoughts.

January 18, 2009

last night, i dreamt that my beard was being shaved off against my will. even though i hardly believe in superstition or the literal interpretation of dreams, i’m still rather unhappy about this. i’m not sure why.

i woke up today thinking of the luxembourg gardens in paris, and the multitude of both chain and independent bakeries that ring the neighbourhoods around it. my thoughts drifted back to the first time i took a bite of any foodstuff in france: a pain au chocolat from a nondescript bakery on the rue du faubourg saint-antoine in paris’ 11th district.

i can’t stop thinking about that pain au chocolat. i miss that city – that life – more than almost anything else.
