i decided to read a moveable feast while i was on a trip to paris, and was shocked to find that the opening chapters discuss the exact square my hostel was located in.
ernest’s old paris house was just down the street with a plaque on it. having that real-world experience of being in the setting of a book certainly heightened my awareness of it and captured my full attention.
years later, i think i would still be able to identify the square if i was roaming around the streets of paris and stumbled upon it.
what! that's fucking incredible. have you ever made any art about it? or adjacent to that Paris trip?

i haven’t, would have been cool to spend more time writing in some of the local cafes but i didn’t give myself enough time on that trip
