I found myself with a couple of hours to spare and decided to watch a favorite movie and lose myself in the romance. The movie ends in Paris on a bridge crossing the Seine. Suddenly I found myself nostalgic at the thought of my favorite city. I went to my files and began pulling up photos when it hit me, this day last year I was walking the city with my camera enjoying the last day of an incredible holiday. CF had stayed behind at the hotel to enjoy our small but lovely room while I went out in the afternoon – an afternoon with heavy clouds just waiting to rain. I walked and walked with the eventuality of ending in the Luxembourg garden – it seems I always start or end there. It is a special place and I have frequented it on each trip to the city of lights.
I have missed it this year – like an old friend – a consequence I plan to remedy next year.
The city has a magnetic pull at me. Much has changed since that visit last year, but my love for the city never falters. I look forward to walking its streets again….. soon, I hope.
