breakfast chez george with @missjulesberlin


@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).OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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


we   a d o r e   Mary Wesley and Plum Wodehouse too. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

as well as naughty Truman and earnestly-earnest Ish.

it was a Lovely Morning.

and yes, we did make a little movie.

you are so Terribly Kind to ask *MGMsmiletocamera*

  1. Dearest G
    Mary Wesley – the patron saint of late starters!
    My best female friend at school was named Hebe for her novel ‘Harnessing Peacocks’ and today Radio Three’s lunchtime concert featured that Ravel that the music to ‘The Chamomile Lawn’ was taken from.
    Divinely saucy tv series that was.
    How strange and splendid when fates collide.
    Yours ever
    The Perfumed Dandy

  2. love the video, and the music. and the stars, and the bubbles, and the books, and the george :)

  3. Well that was poitively wonderful. As I mentioned recently, I am so grateful for all of the fine people that I have “met” because of you, Miss Jules and Mr. Snyder being two “that I most hope to meet”!! They looked so happy chatting together. And 7:30 am? Well, to meet George ok but otherwise…No way!

  4. It is delicious when there are bubbles, a chandelier, berries, books and a green shiny door knob and a beautiful bangle. And I am also astonished at how early you seem to arise!

do say something - do :-)
