Dansons La Capucine (Or Cutest Cat Video Ever)

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.

Existential French Cat

Hi y’all. I’ve entered the grad school fog; it’s throwing havoc on my blog posting schedule. So let me just set it straight: there is no schedule.

Instead, I take many mini-breaks in between the reading/writing/thinking/pacing/despairing/aha-ing and laughing at funny clips like this:

I’ve always loved cats. And been sort of jealous of their lifestyle. Of course, I’m just sitting around most of the day, too, but my back hurts, I’m battling carpal tunnel, and my writing may never see the light of day. So, I still think their version is better.

What if they felt the full emptiness of it all, though?

What if a cat, were, (gasp!) actually an existential French cat?

Note: Subtitles in the video. And the person narrating is not a native French speaker. FYI. Enjoy!

paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.

Share the love!
