Paris est vivant!

 Yes, Paris is alive 
and from the looks of it still kicking.
Paris and all that she stands for
cannot be killed.

Paris is beauty, 
romance, adventure, friendship,
refinement, food, art, 
connection, intimacy, life,
and most important,
love.

My heart is broken.
My heart goes out to Paris.
My heart goes out to humanity.

And the tragedy of Friday, November 13th
has simply opened my heart to loving Paris more.

Paris is mystery.

Paris is light.

And the Seine flows.

I look forward to returning to Paris in the Spring --
connecting with friends,
visiting my favorite places,
eating good food,
laughing at my poor French language skills,
sitting in cafes.

You can't kill love.
