Week III at my Julia's place - and today my endeavour was to start cleaning the kitchen...
We were having our customary Friday afternoon tea and cakes with Estelle, another friend who accompanies Julia on the piano when I'm not in Paris. In between two pieces of tart, Julia suddenly went to her library at the back of the living room to search for something. It was the vinyl records she released as Julietta, a young French pop singer in the 60s: a few E.p.'s and one album Chansons et Légendes pour Demain (Songs and Legends for Tomorrow), which was the first science-fiction concept album and included songs penned by none others than French novelist René Barjavel and Jean-Claude Forest, the creator of cult comic Barbarella, who also designed the cover sleeve and the illustration. 
To think that I had known Julia for 24 years now, and that she waited all these years to show me those treasures!!!
And damn, what a beautiful woman she was!
