@missjulesberlin was slightly surprised when we said the time we’d like to pick her up in the perfectly-silver-Prius this morning.
das ist 7?
well, ok, we said – let’s make it 7.30AM –
because we’re going to visit George for breakfast so we need to get there early (George gets up very Early to Write).
and then she smiled and was reassured – a breakfast encounter is always delicious.
and we had also made a Plan with George to do a little cinematic-moment-about-his-books (his own books that he writes as well as the ones he owns).
doesn’t Spengler always remind you of the Waugh (that would be Evelyn) quote?
so I packed up all my clothes and two or three solemn books, such as Spengler’s Decline of the West, and a great many drawing materials, for two of the many unfulfilled resolutions which I made about this trip were that I was going to do some serious reading and drawing. Then I got into an aeroplane and went to Paris, where I spent the night with some kind, generous, and wholly delightful Americans.
– when the going was good
it was a Lovely Morning.
and yes, we did make a little movie.
you are so Terribly Kind to ask *MGMsmiletocamera*
