pantheon foot

When I watch the Pantheon on this photo I made yesterday, I feel like it's about to collapse. Look at the columns: they are dangerously curved and the tourists on the steps really don't care, while eating sandwiches, drinking wine and smoking pot. I asked this young man to stop playing like this with his balloon, because the bounces are adding danger to danger. 50 meters away, there is the Hôtel des Grands Hommes, where Philippe Soupault and André Breton wrote together, as they were under 20, Les Champs Magnétiques. Breton was inspired by Pierre Janet, a psychologist who used automatic writing for treating his patients (L'automatisme psychologique, 1889).
