The Passage of Time – and Paris

image

It’s my birthday in 10 days. If I was on Twitter right now, I’d use the hashtag scary….. because where the fuck have the last 12 months gone?
I could swear it was only a few months ago that I went to Paris to celebrate successfully getting through yet another year. A few months, 4, maybe 5 tops. But it was 12, an entire year!
There’s no getting away from it, the older you get and the faster time passes. It’s like, you know that small trickle you get from a spring in drought time? That’s what time is like when you’re young and blissfully unaware – but when you get older the trickle is a terrifying fucking waterfall.
Daunting. Petrifying. Truly chilling. And now I’m gonna quit with the synonyms and the drama and give you a few random pics of that Paris trip that happened a while ago. An entire year ago. My hairdresser had just started my hair transition: getting me from red to blonde, hence why I look weird – my hair was in between colours and looking awful. Plus, I hadn’t slept in 2 days by the time I got to Paris, which made the Museum visits an interesting affair. Gosh, it was a great trip all the same #LookingBack

Not looking very impressed for some reason – I think I wasn’t in the mood for yet another photograph, hence the hard stare

Gotta love Venus – I make sure I go and see her regularly

    1. Thanks! I know I’m biased because I’m French but Paris IS so beautiful! I really love it – there’s nowhere else with that atmosphere of culture, fashion…… just class, you know?
      If you ever make it to Paris, do let me know – I’ll happily show you around 😉

  1. Very nice pics, and happy soon to be b-day. 🙂 I’ve always wondered why the cocks on every ancient statue that I’ve ever seen a picture of look more like pimples than dicks? Did the Romans and Greeks not have penises bigger than 2 inches, or were hung cocks not admired back in the day and thus de-emphasized on statues? I know, weird question on a wonderful blog post that has nothing at all to do with such an asinine topic. Sorry. I’m just crazy I guess, but THIS is how my mind works. 😀

    1. Thank you!
      I think we can safely say that hung cocks WERE definitely admired back in the day, by all and sundry 😉
      What you want is the neoclassicism period because it was all about the art from ancient Greece and Rome BUT with added realism 😉
      Do not ever apologise for the way your mind works by the way – I ❤ the way it works. Mine works in a similar slightly insane way and as we concluded yesterday – that's what makes us so fucking terrific! 😀
