I live in the space of gratitude

Victor Hugo was exiled here for 15 years and I had the good fortune of taking a tour today of the writer's home. It's as if each room was a chapter and the home was actually another book. I'll let a few of the pictures speak for themselves.

He is certainly quotable but thus one resonates-
"Nothing makes a man so adventurous as an empty pocket.'
It is here where the writer completed his masterpiece,  Les Miserables, using a stand up desk..Sitting was the new smoking back then too.




Hugo wrote Latin phrases into his furniture, honoring God and also his beloved writers Moliere and Shakespeare. HEReif@blueforceinc.com in his kitchen, the "H" in the wall tiles, we'll that stands for hisfamily's name obviously.
