And please please please rent a place with a kitchen so you can go out each day and buy your groceries. Shopping at the open air markets is a delight. A small round of cheese every day for a month... DO IT. (less)

Notre Dame: So many photos

It’s happened too often. Christophe arrives home. I say, “Did you hear about… Paris?” He looks at me and almost visibly withers. “What now?”


I tell him.


“Gone?”


“Don’t know. Still on fire.”


And since then we’ve been TV zombies. A quick scan of my photos shows countless images of Notre Dame I’ve taken over the years. Seems every time I walk by or stop in, another photo gets added to the collection....

Intrigue the whole time

A wonderful page turner. Plenty of twists and turns, plus an accurate description of Paris. A great read. Looking forward to the sequel.
Janice shared a quote
Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes
“We pass the apartment we rented five years ago, when I swore off Florence. In summer, wads of tourists clog the city as if it's a Renaissance theme park. Everyone seems to be eating. That year, a garbage strike persisted for over a week and I began to have thoughts of plague when I passed heaps of rot spilling out of bins. I was amazed that long July when waiters and shopkeepers remained as nice as they did, given what they had to put up with. Everywhere I stepped I was in the way. Humanity seemed ugly—the international young in torn T-shirts and backpacks lounging on steps, bewildered bus tourists dropping ice cream napkins in the street and asking, “How much is that in dollars?” Germans in too-short shorts letting their children terrorize restaurants. The English mother and daughter ordering lasagne verdi and Coke, then complaining because the spinach pasta was green. My own reflection in the window, carrying home all my shoe purchases, the sundress not so flattering. Bad wonderland ...more Frances Mayes

“...the only way to happiness is to find people with whom you can eat, drink and laugh. That is everything”
Janice Macleod, Paris Letters

“Immediately, I had the unpleasant realization that I was, in fact, living my dream life, but it was a dream life I had created after I graduated university when I didn’t know any better. I grew up; my dreams did not.”
Janice Macleod, Paris Letters

“I collapsed next to him on the bed and he slowly peeled off the rest of my wardrobe. We made love by moonlight.”

“One reads books in order to gain the privilege of living more than one life. People who don't read are trapped in a mine shaft, even if they think the sun is shining.”
Garrison Keillor

“There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced--or seemed to face--the whole eternal world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that, at your best, you hoped to convey.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“In Paris there are wide cityscapes like nowhere else. Habit has made us indifferent to them. But those who wander around the city—keenly sniffing the air, looking to be moved, to be amazed—are very familiar with these places.”
Helen Constantine, Paris Metro Tales
