Meudon, France 9 November 2019

Meudon is such a beautiful town.  Towns and cities within the larger cities are just sections.  Nord is a city near the northern heart of Paris. 

Within this little town is the river Seine.  A few blocks away from my hotel was this amazingly large tree.  And to me the tree was Yggdrasil, the norse tree of life.  The tree was so broad and reached out so far.

I walked around Meudon a bit.  From the day before, I knew the area far better.  I understood the trains better.  I looked at what I googled a couple of days before and figured out how to get to the Louvre with ease.  It would take about 45 minutes with the train.  I had to be at the Louvre by 10:45am as my guided tour at 11:00am.

I hopped on a minor railway at around 9:15am and made my way to the Palais Royal Musée du Louvre station.

At the station of the Louvre, I had a double espresso and a chocolate croisant or a pain au chocolat before taking the tour.  The barista even threw in a mini chocolate.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m

Anticipated Books of 2021

For me, the two most anticipated books are both by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  The first one is Certain Dark Things to be released 7 September and the second is Velvet is the Night to be released 17 August.  Both are after my birthday so they can’t be my birthday book.  Which is too bad.  Garcia proved she could very write well with Mexican Gothic .  I’m inclined to believe she is the best writer out there. Currently I’m listening to Untamed Shores , Garcia’s thriller that was released last year.  It is similar to Mexican Gothic except without the elements of horror. Speaking of the birthday book, I finally chose the one.  And this time there will be no hiccups.  This year’s birthday book will be: The Album of Dr. Moreau by Daryl Gregory.  The book is set to be released on 18 May.  Three months before my birthday and if the book is to be pushed out, I think it would about a month or so.  It’s a murder mystery that involves a boy band formed by the animal people from The Island of Doctor
