|My worn out copy of The Razor's Edge|
This spring while visiting a friend on the lush island of Maui, I took the time to read W. Somerset Maugham's "The Razor's Edge." The story had three strong male characters, a socialite, a philosopher and a writer. All the characters were American and all made Paris their new home. Imagining myself to have qualities of all three of these characters, it was logical to decide that I could also make Paris my home if I so chose and set out to work doing just that.
Later that spring, I booked an apartment. Then I booked a plane ticket and by August I was living in Le Marais. My observations will tell you what I found there. I hope you enjoy my observations half as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
