Art In the Park

Tomoko explains about her "forced vacation"

Joe and I being photographers, it was unavoidable that we bore everyone to death by talking shop. Before Susan and Tomoko's eyes had completely glazed over, we had managed to bring the conversation around to expositions, art and such, then Joe mentioned that he would be having one soon for his Landscape Photography. I asked where it would be, and - ding ding ding ding ding! - Joe came out with the "City of the Week"... (wait for it)... Simcoe, Ontario, Canada. A city which, by pure coincidence, is that of guest ed's dear Grandad - Joe's got a fan waiting for him already. If you're scratching your head at this passage's odd title, it is the name of an art event held annually there.

(or One, depending)

Susan does some fabulous paintings of Paris as well as monotypes , so be sure to have a look. Tomoko tops up an already creative day with news that she will be in concert with her "Beatles Story" group at the Petite Journal Montparnasse on the 5th of April - soon!

The Café Metropole Club's About Page

This patched-together perhaps overly-short club report thrown together by rather inexperienced 'guest ed' may leave you wanting more... so please be sure to check in next week for less boo-boos and better (and hopefully more) writing. Under the spotlight behind the mystery some facts about the club are on the 'About the Café Metropole Club' page, with its shabby photos, windy paragraphs and the confection of a membership card made of corrugated engineer caps. You can join the club in any year containing at least 32 remaining 'Thursdays of the Week' left this year, except for the rare exceptions, mentioned above.

Where, How, Why Not, When, Who, What, Why?

Regular club meetings begin at 15:00 next Thursday and normally continue until 17:00 when members are present. These times, fixed in steel, are said in some lands to be 3 pm to 5 pm. Around somewhere else is not where meetings are held. Substitutes are rare. Bring yourself to the café La Corona. Come with a friend or relative. The folk in the rear of the big room is ze club, or more exactly, the club's only secretary.

Attend any meeting – by being at one or more. Pass a hour or two or a whole meeting with other club members pretty much like yourself. Real 'firsts' are welcome. True stories will get a hearing. Other stories will depend on your skill. Attending more than one club meeting per membership is cool.

Caution – you may have a personal passion for remaining unfindable via the Web. If so, be sure to inform the club's secretary that you prefer to be '404 – not found'graphic: club location map by Web search engines before becoming 'found' in one of these flaky club reports.

The 'ex–rules' that the club once had continue to be former. These rules were mostly nonsense, even if you can find them. Otherwise you may, in theory, learn that this club features unlikely stories that are pretty true sometimes, and never institutes new rules because members can't remember them.

Talking to other club members at meetings is fairy okay rather than optional. There are always some empty chairs, so sit – wherever you like. Lounging is okay too. Whatever you say will be truly appreciated by the other members present if there are any listening, and sometimes there are but not always – and if it should by pure chance be written here.

The café's location is:

Café–Tabac La Corona
2. Rue de l'Amiral de Coligny – or – 30. Quai du Louvre
Paris 1. Métro: Louvre–Rivoli, Pont–Neuf or Châtelet.
Every Thursday, from 15:00 to 17:00.

A bientôt à Paris
