I love this little verse and the pic that goes with it. I wrote this on my first trip back to Paris after many years, it was the birth of my blog www.2sistersinparis.com. I hope it gives you a little image of one of my favorite cities. XOXOX Sandy

I started my day today on a solo excursion up the street from our hotel. I stopped at Cafe Pierre on Boulevard Magenta to have my morning (or actually early afternoon) cappuccino. The sky is overcast today and the it is windy and a bit chilly, but when the sun comes out it warms quickly. I spent time at several street corners with my camera in hand snapping cyclists – I was amazed at how well they navigate the traffic and the streets – people of all ages, sizes, men, women and kids! I snapped the photo below of a beautiful Parisian dressed to kill and on her bike! You would NEVER see this in Dallas!!! The city is bustling all around me and inspires my muse….
Pulsing, living, breathing, in and out
Paris the city of people – diverse, beautiful at it’s core
Inspiring, magical, elegant, cryptic, crazy, wild
Only people mar the landscape
….or embellish it
Like flowers and weeds existing together to make a perfect garden
a city of lights where love lives in the consciousness
open, free, passionate and lovely –
the wine of life served up at breakfast, lunch and dinner,
and before your final goodbye.
