The Crèpeman is a super hero saving starving school children whose stomachs rumble at 4PM when the school bell rings. The crèpeman is wonder man, the school kids save him with thei growling guts because the tourists didn’t come to Mouffetard in 2020.

It was a nice surprise to find the gardens open. I thought everything would be closed like when they closed all the gardens during the first Covid Confinement in the spring.

The Kiosk was open.

Riding the metro in Paris is like lying down under a gong during the light wave. The Metro nada is a screeching metallic grating dissonance that leaves you dishevelled.

Riding the metro in Paris is like lying down under an out of tune gong during the tsunami. The Metro nada is a screeching metallic grating dissonance that leaves you dishevelled. Everyone comes out like they’ve been through a car wash. No wonder everyone wears head phones.

It was a nice day when I drew this. It was before the second lockdown of 2020. For years I went to Jardin de Luxembourg every day. Every morning I jogged around the gardens twice, in 45 minutes. It was a 7 K run. Then I would return with my child after school and she would ride the ponies or the swings and we’d buy a crèpe au nutella and have to peel it off of the paper towel they served it in. During the fall she would collect chesnuts and bring them back home where they would sit in a bucket on the balcony for months until they rotted and we had to throw them away. We’d meet with friends and have picknicks vying for a place on the lawns that were littered with cigarette butts and half naked Parisians and when we stood up wet spots marked our clothes. On some days there would be dust storms and on others so many people that no chairs were available.

Now the garden gates are locked. One day they will reopen and I’ll go sketch another queen of France.
