Henry Miller Festival in Paris

Affiche-Festival Henri Miller(1)I found out Henry Miller was an author when I first saw a copy of his “Tropic of Cancer” on my father’s workbench in the garage. When I walked into dorothy’s gallery to buy concert tickets to Gabriela Arnon‘s concert, I found out Henry Miller was also a painter, artist and photographer.  Dorothy shows periodically hundreds of his works on loan to her from Miller’s son. This is a rare opportunity to have a glimpse into this other sphere of Henry Miller. It is all part of the “Henry Miller Festival: Aller Retour”. This year, 2014, marks the eightieth anniversary of Tropic of Cancer’s publication.

Dorothy’s gallery, American Center for the Arts, in collaboration with the Henry Miller Memorial Library in big Sur California, Shakespeare and Company and Mary Duncan are inviting you to the celebration.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
