It is no longer as hot as it has been. It´s not humid anymore. I prefer it this way.
Found an article in yesterdays paper about the Kensington roof gardens in London. I must pay a visit when I visit end of august.
Here´s a link if any of you are in London:
I´ve always had a weak spot for city gardens. In Paris I always try to visit the garden at Musée Rodin on 79, rue de Varenne. Once upon a time, when a certain young woman (head over heels in love), living in the 17th arrondissemnent (!), needed a place to rest read write, she used to go to this garden. It wakes memories in me. When I hear or read the last words of Hemingways A moveable feast , "But this is how Paris was in the early days when we were very poor and very happy", I emmediately think of the garden at 79, rue de Varenne.
I´ve also been terribly sad and lonely in Paris. So the city doesn´t hold only nice good memories for me.
Above is an image of Meryl Streep from the film The French Lieutenant´s woman. The image is from a newspaper, I just loved the colours and the texture of the paper. I don´t usually have images of actors or musicians around (I´ve never really understood what it is like to be a "fan")...I don´t see this image as beeing of Meryl, it is of her character in the film. She is so beautiful in this picture. She still is. And such a talented actress. Wow, I seem to have a huge need to explain this image. Or justify having a framed image of Meryl Streep;)
PS. That is not entirely true. That I don´t have images of actors around. I do now. I have placed that image of "The kiss" from the film My blueberry nights back on my fridge door. To make me smile.
PPS. I am a little silly. Makes me smile to think I need to justify that image of Meryl. Or as we say in finnish "sä oot ihan hönö". That is what I am, a little hönö.
