But so far, I haven't made it back to the Paris photos, having been delayed and detoured and outright stopped-in-my-tracks by recollections of Bordeaux.
I'd forgotten about this mural on the municipal Gymnase de Chartrons, and obviously it's too magnificent to be forgotten. Which makes me very conscious that even slowing down our travel as deliberately as P and I do, we're still moving too fast. Or perhaps to really benefit from slow travel, it's important to spend more time afterward, integrating what we've experienced.
But maundering and wittering with some great images, no?
walking to the Sempé exhibition. If we hadn't had a pretty firm commitment to that destination, I'd have lingered longer with this gorgeous fresque murale. I've seen -- and shared here -- some amazing art on exterior walls in a variety of locations, but this has to be one of my top Wow!!s The piece is called "Le Message Sécret" and it's a collaboration between Said Dokins and The MonkeyBird Crew, sponsored, if I understand correctly, by Pôle Magnetic.
And having pulled some of that moment from Bordeaux, June 2019 into my here and now, I offer it to you from a Vancouver that's doing its November thing. Grey and raining. . . .
Weekend plans you care to share? Thoughts about processing memory? About remembering your travels? About the surprising beauty of street art? About slowing down? Any or all of the above?
