Refuge Cafe, Refuge City

Here’s the first post to my new blog Paris Illustré, featuring illustrations of Paris (and some other spots).  I hope you’ll join me over there!

This cafe certainly looks like a cozy refuge, its entry tucked inside that verdant archway.  For me, Paris itself is a refuge.  I end up immersed in beautiful parks, gardens and interiors, fascinating streets, art-stuffed museums, and book after gorgeous book in any number of shops.  Although Paris is crowded with people and noisy traffic (love is deaf as well as blind?), corners of solitude and quiet are remarkably abundant — you just may need to endure some jostling on your way there.
