While I have not written much about castles lately, I want everyone to know that work is continuous for me in this area. For one, just the other day I discovered fifty eight more Chateau Hotels in France, which will greatly increase my database once ilovecastles.com is up and running full speed. France will be my fourth book, which is already too large but who can dictate the size of a book if its merits exceed allowances. I have always bucked against unreasonable restraints, especially concerning artistic endeavors and censorship makes my blood run cold.
That being said, I will choose the words of Bonnard who said, "What I wanted, at all costs, was to escape the monotony of life." In case you are unfamiliar, let me introduce you to Pierre Bonnard, who was perhaps the greatest French artist of his time, but he was not well recognized. He was of the same school as Toulouse Lautrec and Matisse- both being favorites of mine. Monet was also his contemporary and he watched him very close, perhaps gleaning ideas and inspiration from him.
Writing is as much an art form and much more difficult to be objective about, often. I do not necessarily refer to poetry here, either.
Pas Un Mot de Trop!
Pour un style d’ecrivain rigoreux et puissant, le moyen est d’autant plus. C’est pourquoi je dis,"Qui plus sait, plus se tait." Quand tu ecris de plus en plus,de loin en loin tu trouverais que c’est vrai. Ce n’est pas facile mais de fait l’economie. C’est un succes si tu ecris le poemes ou des essais, des romans ou des nouvelles en cette facon.
