I never think of the gargoyles

I never think of the gargoyles outside because entering Notre Dame feels like stepping into an especially ancient and beautiful hug. 

And we both know all the truth I could tell...
I hope you're somewhere praying, 
I hope your soul is changing. 
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying. 
Kesha - Praying

A glass of rosé with a view...

And my goodness, what a view!

It's Friday - hurrah!

Les Confidents - Part 2

Here I am, still hanging around the Palais-Royal...I told you I can't get enough of this work...!

I found myself skulking around the garden, lying in wait to nab my two other favourite chairs by artist Michel Goulet...

I adore this quote by Charles Baudelaire: "La mer est ton miroir; tu contemples ton âme..." (The sea is your mirror; you contemplate your soul".

And this one is by Paul Eluard: "Liberte: Je suis ne pour te connaitre, pour te nommer" (I was born to know you, to name you...Liberty).

Bonne dimanche a tous...

Tuileries garden

It's a measure of the extraordinary allure of Paris, I think, that even empty garden chairs around a fountain in a public garden are gorgeous.  Don't they look inviting?  

May you too get to kick back this weekend in a gorgeous place...
