Writing on the Wall


I asked my daughter what her favourite words were and she gave me this list (she's just turned 10):
pickle, squish, love, together, forever, satin, symphony, satelite dish (but she deleted this after), seaweed, compost, composer and pianist
It's a pretty good list, I reckon, and I don't think I could come up with a better one.
This wall which I only recently discovered in Paris is called the 'I-Love-You Wall' as it's covered in 'I love you's written in about a hundred languages and as rather cool. This sort of composition begs to completely fill the frame and create its own universe, devoid of external influences, well, almost... In fact there is a great piece of graffiti just above the I-love-yous which transforms it from great to exceptional. How the artist actually got up there is one of those enigmas of our time, but there it is, and a pleasure to stumble across.
