A Moveable Feast


“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”      Ernest Hemingway to a friend, 1950.

“To Lori, An invitation to our feast.  Love….”   written in this book given to me by my husband as we began our married life.

The book was new, as were our dreams.

He gave me Paris and it was a “moveable feast”.

I was truly lucky.

  1. I am not much of a Hemingway fan (although I’ve read nearly all of his work). However, this book along with the Nick Adams stories are exceptions for me. I LOVED A Moveable Feast–the people, the city… so much to enjoy. Your husband is a smart person to gift this book!

      1. I spend a lot of time in Michigan’s UP in some of the territory Hemingway wrote about in the In Our Time Nick Adams stories. He was quite the fly fisherman, I guess! Enjoying your posts!


    1. Shakespeare & Company…what a delightful place to shop and soak up the atmosphere of the “lost generation”! I will be in Paris soon and that is a definite stop. Thanks for sharing your comments.


  2. I haven’t read this particular book. I’ll add it to my wish list and read it with a more touching perspective knowing Dan gave it to you with such love in his heart.
    Love you and miss you my friend!
