I’ve just emerged from a long, hot bath and am a human dishrag. Truly, I can’t remember ever being this tired. Mustn’t give up, I keep thinking, there’s so much of Paris still to discover and explore! And yet I can hardly put one foot in front of the other.
The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to
learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and
when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be
wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like
hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be
alive. You will be dead soon enough”
William Saroyan (American Writer, 1908-1981)
PS. Inside my Chanel bag were three free samples of other perfumes which will make a nice present for my daughter – and the bag itself, too. So, really, a totally justifiable purchase. Yes?
