Living in the 20th Arrondissement gives the Lone Wolf and me a wider range of experience of Paris--of the multi-cultural Paris, the diverse Paris, the un-picture postcard Paris--that is a thriving part of the Paris whole. Do we see more signs of revolution here? I believe so...for this is the Paris where creative energy takes a fork in the cultural road and explodes in art and a less inhibited life.
Here are some signs of revolution that are going on in the wider world...
It is revolutionary to actually use a landline telephone now. To find a phone booth and step into it to make a call, is like digging up a pharoah in his tomb.
(Not to mention, who would want a tile mural of a phone booth in her home? Someone who's throwing a revolution in bad taste?)
If you don't think these women couldn't be plotting their own revolution, monsieur or madame, you would indeed be wrong.
Do you need a revolution in your own life? I'm currently trying to create one in mine. It's time for me to make some changes.
