Halloween isn’t a big deal in Paris, but I can think of no better hommage than “L’Haunting” by Henri the Existential Cat. I first posted about Henri way back in 2010. I’m glad to see he’s out with a Halloween edition.
My thoughts go out to all affected by Superstorm Sandy. I hope some humor helps!
Greetings from New York!
Just a quick hello to say I’m having such a blast in NYC – book launches, power lunches, cookouts, cupcakes. Threw in a freelance assignment for good measure, too.
It just feels great to be here. And so the never-ending tug of sympathies continues – Paris, New York, Paris, New York.
Of course, I feel blessed to have both. On Monday I met up with someone who truly gets it. Amy Thomas (of “Paris, My Sweet” and God, I Love Paris) shares the Paris/New York love affair and it was great to see her in the Big City. We’ve always spent time together in Paree – this was our first New York date!
Tonight I’ll be going to hear her read at Posman Books in Chelsea Market along with Jeryl Brunner, author of “My City, My New York: Famous New Yorkers Share Their Favorite Places.” Doesn’t that sound like the perfect double bill? If you’re in New York, come on out! (Click here for details).
In the meantime, I leave you with this French video. For the past week I’ve been sharing a lovely Brooklyn apartment with a ginger-colored cat named Bernard. Here’s proof of a truth I’m happy to accept: the cute cat video is a worldwide phenomenon. Global understanding through adorable animal videos! Let’s do it!
Hope you’re well.
