When Jeremy was little, he loved looking at patterns. He was born in Paris and always loved studying the various patterns that French architecture provided him. Back then, I did not know why he was so interested in them. He had autism and admiring patterns appeared to be part and parcel of that.
Years later, when he could write, he explained that he liked patterns because they are predictable – they don’t change. Patterns help him make sense of the world.
Now I’m back in back in Paris for ten days with Jeremy’s sister, Rebecca. We visited a few patterns Jeremy enjoyed when growing up here, and took pictures for him to enjoy. I hope you enjoy these little bits of Paris as well!
