L’Écoute – a sculpture by Henri Miller


Somewhere in Paris - m.joyThe leaves are swirling down past the window and today is a family birthday and thinking about the day this photo was taken

This sculpture was infront of l’Eglise St Eustache in Les Halles area of Paris but looking at Google maps is in the middle of a big upheaval of this area (lieuxdupossible.files.wordpress.com/…/la-sculpture-l_…)

Les Halles, right in the center of Paris, happy memories… fountains and beautiful landscaping, fringed by Irish pubs like Oscar Wilde or Quigeleys Point that stayed open all hours and cafes that you sat outside in winter under heat lamps or packed into the ‘Chicago Meatpackers’ diner – 8 Rue Coquillière with large toy train whirling around a track above your heads – close to the river Seine and La Samaritaine department store (now closed but will reopen in 2016) – floors and floors of Parisian wonder.. and if you make to the top floor, a cafe with a beautiful view.
