IFJM 25: Old Port, and Being Tourists in Marseille

April 25

W15 4 25 IFJM 002From my journal:  “Poked around Old Port, because this was a possible place E & M could be.  We shopped, finally, for gifts for Ruth and Family: soaps, chocolate.”

“Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.”
John Gardner

W15 4 25 IFJM 007From my journal: “Walked off without a pen — geesh.  We walked up the Boulevard Liberation to visit the museum (Musee des Beaux Arts de Marseille).  It was fun to play tourists, no book agenda.  I was thrilled to see the Muse by Rodin and two Rubens — I love Ruben.” 

“We tried an airy, bright restaurant — La Table Cinq — for a fabulous dinner.  An amazing salad, pork and fish.  Split desserts, a lemony tart and a berry ‘cake’.”

“It is precisely because we resist the darkness in
ourselves that we miss the depths of the loveliness, beauty, brilliance, creativity, and joy that lie at our core.”
Thomas Moore, Dark Night of the Soul
