Smokes

Stay Cool | Effortlessly is how Steve McQueen maintains his aplomb attitude. White shirt, black tie and Persol shades. The Viceroy cigarette barely hanging to his lower lip is pure effect.

Single Point

Campagne brouiller | Blurred vision of rurality. As the Memorial Weekend approaches then plans can be made for trips out of the hustle and bustle of the City. Leafy roads and sleepy villages under a lofty sun.

Orange Crush

Marmalade | Ongoing tweaking and fettling of the old Bonnie saw fruition today. New headlight and front indicators working; standard pegs and ‘normal’ bars will get me back on the road vintage style in no time. Kicked over and purred along nicely.

A Loss to Civilization

Nous sommes tous Parisiens | Terrible news from France today as fire engulfed Norte Dame. It is a City I love to stroll around “flâner à Paris looking at the architecture; and would one day hope to ride a Moto around doing likewise; stopping at the occasional street cafe and carry out another French pastime: people watching.

The Lady will be rebuilt and Paris will Triumph.

I am the Light
