No man is an island
The man rests, his heart informs the piece
Under the canopy of trees that curve
As arch like the parasol shade
The woman dons all breezy and free
There is war, there is love in this heart
There are colours, there is vigour
In their upright air
There is a fine spectacle such as this
Under the vault of the trees and
Shoulder blades and swords
Find the painters brush.

The Parisian is never indifferent to what goes on around him and the slightest new thing will stay his steps. A man has but to direct his gaze upwards and appear to observe something attentively and you will see others stop to look also. The crowd gathers and everyone is asking what there is to be seen…Street performers and quacks draw an audience at the first motion, though it melts away as quickly as it forms and the wandering crowd in the street is made up chiefly from the outskirts, of people little familiar with their surroundings ot those who like to waste their employers time. Examine any group; out of a hundred there will be forty servants and nearly as many apprentices.
From The Picture of Paris Louis Sebastian Mercier 1788
Recorded at Hasting Old Studios in 2015,
Engineered by Del.
