Midnight in Paris, and also in Taipei?

Watched Midnight in Paris.  Nice to see all the streets, buildings, gardens and people of Paris, which left a such etched memories in me when I visit Paris and Prague in 2009.  The movie, by Woody Allen, is amusing.  Via the words of the great authors of the by-gone years, Hemingway said, "As long as the story is honest talked about courage under pressure, it will be a good novel."  How true.  The love theme by Cole Porter "Let's do it" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpaE1zhFXXk , is especially alluring with the warm, fussing lighting used in the movie with old paris in the background.

Of the many dreams I have, living in an artists-centric community and produce poems, novels, photographic, painting, is one that I might just try sometime, maybe in Taipei, or San Francisco, or Beijing, or New York, or just in Carmel....

Living the dreams

I used to just nod politely saying "just fine", when people ask me "how are you doing?".  I decided to change that. ...
