Writer by the Seine river

I took this picture upon entering the Shakespeace & Company bookstore in Paris. It was an old building with worn-out bookshelves and furniture, full of tourists and local book lovers. But I was drawn to the quotes written in white chalk by Sylvia Beach.

It was also a dream for me to have a little bookstore, better still if it comes attached with a cafe selling teas from around the world.

Life is beautiful when it's at its simplest.

Remember Ernest Hemingway in Paris? I bet you do.
