For BOTCities, I am a Paris Pretty. I would have participated in the extra credit, but I don't know if I'll have time to make another set.
Alright so I need to make a short story of my trip to the Louvre. I honestly just spit this out so it's probably awful. Sorry:
I was late. This was my main destination of the day, and I was late. It was just so hard to make myself move quickly in this city. I could sit in a cafe with a cup of hot chocolate and a book along the Seine all day and I would be content. I spent the day wandering, simply walking with no specific destination. Stumbling into obscure art galleries, tasting food including dark chocolate croissants, fruit tarts, crepes, and more--I would have to get some serious exercising sometime soon or else I would have a problem--, gazing across the Seine, ambling from little boutique to hidden bookstore.
This was my first day in Paris and I knew I would have a lot of time to hit the tourist destinations so, because I knew I didn't have much time before closing, headed to the Mona Lisa. It wasn't hard to find, a large room almost filling capacity with everyone gathering around one piece of art.
One tiny masterpiece. Everyone always imagines the iconic Mona Lisa bigger, more majestic. But no, it is small. Historical, striking, pretty... and underwhelming. Anything that you have such high expectations for leaves you disappointed. The crowd made the painting even harder to appreciate. I moved out of the room as fast as I could. There was only a half an hour until closing so without making any decisions, I continued to walk around.
Room to room, I drank in stunning works, many of them I recognized, others I didn't. I found I liked the ones that I didn't more. They were newer, more fresh. Sometimes the beauty in something is simply that you've never seen it before.
Finally, five minutes from closing, I found myself in a marble tile sculpture garden with Greco-Roman statues. The sun was setting and the room filled with an orange-pink glow. The long day of walking was beginning to take it's toll. I sat down on a bench, resting my sore feet, and leaned onto my arms. I found the more pleasure just sitting in this room than anywhere else in the museum. It was starting to empty out, and I could pretend (when there was no one walking by) that I was simply by myself surrounded by history, beautiful history, a glorious day in Paris fading into the next.
Paris gave me a cinematic feeling, especially sitting here in the Louvre as the light of the sun faded. If there was any way to live a content life, this seemed like it. I spent the day admiring corner cafes and breathing in the (admittedly smoky) Parisian air (mixed with the delicacies of fresh baked bread), stumbling without a plan through the most sublime, picturesque things that society has to offer. And I could end the day, reflecting on the history of Europe and the little pleasures in life. And I didn't need a plan. I was just wandering. Just living.
oh gosh. I'm sorry guys that was. ew gosh.
Okay well I must shower (my itchy eyes are killing me). I may go back and change some things later if I realize there were some things I was missing. It's been a long time since a real set, eh?
