« La patrie, c'est toutes les promenades qu'on peut 
faire à pied autour de son village. » ~ Jules Renard

Èze is one of thirteen villages perched along the Côte d'Azur. Its origins date back to 2000 BC, but its remaining ramparts and chapel are medieval (14th Century). Situated between Nice and Monaco, Èze is reknown for its expansive views of the Mediterranean Sea and its botanical gardens with cacti, succulents, and lovely sculptures. The village is home to many shops, art galleries, and restaurants, as well as the famed Fragonard Perfume factory. This village-musée is a popular destination for tourists and celebrities alike; Walt Disney was a frequent visitor to Èze and Bono has along the sea coast.

Just My Type

"It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage 
was once brand new." ~ Tony Visconti

Nothing changes faster than technology. A decade ago we didn't even have smart phones. That's hard to imagine given that there have been fifteen iterations of iPhone since its inception in 2007.  I am often an early adopter, yet I still find myself charmed by vintage technology, especially cameras and typewriters -- technology that enables creativity. I'm always on the lookout for vintage cameras to add to my mini collection (If you see any Beau Brownies or Kodak Bantam Specials, let me know!), and I'm still searching for the ideal typewriter -- one that helps me channel my inner Hemingway. This WWII-era Royal comes pretty close.

"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: 
it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg... 
You cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg." ~ C. S. Lewis
