Immoveable Feast

Today is a holiday of the Roman Catholic Church: the feast of St. Germain, Bishop of Paris.  St. Germain is now known for the neighborhood that bears his name, home to what is said to be the oldest church in Paris, and a boulevard…

"… I met Joyce who was walking along the Boulevard St.-Germain after having been to a matinée alone.  He liked to listen to the actors, although he could not see them.  He asked me to have a drink with him and we went to the Deux-Magots…."

— Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
