At home on top of trees

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

My gorgeous view, from a rented room of my own, which I will have for only four more days and four more nights. I have lived on top of these trees, with a view of the Butte Chaumont and the big Parisian sky, for 2.5 years. It’s true, you do get used to climbing stairs, and to your roommate calling you from the courtyard down below, asking you to toss the bike room keys out the window so she doesn’t have to make the 7-flight climb.

Interrupting the day’s workflow to zoom in on the rain clinging to my window.
