a quick bonjour

dear friends, i am sitting in my uncle's apartement in paris. the window is open and i can hear the hussle and bussle that is city life outside. it is late in the morning but i find myself wanted to stay in, that is what happens in a beautiful paris apartement. in a few minutes i will head out and walk to the tuillerie after stopping at the boulangerie du pain et des idees to sit at a park bench, people watch and gather thoughts. i will walk some more after that, stop in at a cafe  or deux, more pattiseries and so on.  It is fashion week here, and  Paris Nuits Blanche is saturday, i have always wanted to attend. sunday it is free museum day and i am excited to visit a few, not to mention the Bio farmers market. I have a small list of things i want to do, things that i have writen down through out the year, i hope to do them, while allowing room for the unexpected, alley ways, cafe's, gardens along the way.

i can not wait to share with you my time in dordogne the wonderful women i met there, Le chateau Villars in the perigord, my special time in switzerland with juliana and of course paris.

hope you are doing well, a bientot!

Sounds romantic and enchanted. Just returned from a get-away to the coast. I found the sweetest patisserie/bistro with exquisite pastries which I dined on three days in a row while happily thinking of you.
