Oh! Danica found this little gem via Nearness of Distance. Nadja à Paris, 1964. Perfect for both the francophile and the ex-exchange student trying to put a finger on that niggling feeling of restlessness. Check and check.

I discovered a world without problems, a simpler world, more typically French. It really helped me let go of the superficial things in my life…

...I don’t intend to stay of course, but I hope I never lose touch with Paris. My stay here will leave its mark on me. That’s not surprising, because this just might be the most important period in ones life, when one shakes off past influences and one’s true personality is formed.


Her wonderful hair also makes me feel better about my awkward little crop! Apologies for the average screenshot... parts one and two.

Oh, beautiful....what I would give to spend hours lingering in a cafe in Montparnasse in 1962! And to be able to pull of a pixie cut! Thanks for sharing!!
