Je viens du Sud…

My neighbour doesn’t know but just the fact that he is growing plants on his rooftop makes me happy.

When it’s bright and sunny over Shanghai, like today, all I could think of is this song by Michel Sardou: “Je viens du Sud, et par tous les chemins j’y reviens…”  .

“Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees…

“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.”

– Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast.
