A painter friend of mine was telling me about some teaching she is doing in Paris :

"...... Basically what it really means is I was showing the aspirants that first and foremost an artist must perfect the true art of sitting in a cafe, drinking coffee and watching how time has a curious ability to progress at a variety of speeds from a fixed point. Of course, time passes continually at the same speed, but sitting in a cafe drinking coffee can place the artist under the illusion that things not only slow down (semi-conscious, early morning), but speed up considerably (late afternoon, third expresso). Anyhoo..."

Wow. You've been in Lagos. My god. What a (fearsome) place. This: http://www.jezblog.com/index.php?showimage=1619 is superb! Weird and wonderful.

And this: http://www.jezblog.com/index.php?showimage=1615 is absolutely incredible (said in a French accent)! The boy who never gets old. J of the eternally youthful C, the everlasting Peter Pan – Whatever it is you take, I need some. If you can bottle it you'd meck a fortune. Save me a vial, please.

It's dark. I'm by Notre Dame beneath an outdoor cafe heater – Paris, my love, is fervent and cold. The coffee noir is like heroin tonight. I am anesthetized and flying and ready for the world...almost...

Don't ya just love her already......... ???? We always loved a good cafe......... hehehehe......... :-)))))))))))))))))))))

On the strength of this email........ which I read in the rather fab Delta Lounge at London's Heathrow Airport....... I decided to watch Movie "Midnight in Paris" when looking at the mega selection on the flight ..... it stars Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams even a sort of cameo role for Carla Bruni the wife of French President......... :-))))))) ....... but thats where the story somewhat falters for me I have to say ........ it is a pretty bad movie........ my interest was kind of waning........ I started reading my book at the same time....... (I like never do that) ......... then the screen had some kind of failure and needed to be reset........ ah good....... the decision is made for me........ that was the perfect cue to not bother watching the rest of the movie........ so now I will never know if it was all a dream ?????? hehehehehehe :-))))))))))))))

Anyway........ I am wheels down in Atlanta now.......... sitting in a not particularly romantic cafe at HJ Airport ......... time is drifting..... as it can in cafes the world over..... for artists....... for everyone ....... Especially for anyone suffering from the vagueness that a good old nine hour flight will engender in you ........ and as I sip the coffee wearing very necessary shades (even though its not exactly sunny) ........ I am kind of vaguely wondering what's happened to my ride ?????? :-)))))))))))))

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PS......... Me old mate Greg was in the right bar....... I on the other hand was in the wrong cafe......... in the end this was resolved ..... so I did get a lift :-)))))))
