{something i'd forgotten}

"Sitting there, alone in a foreign country, far from my job and everyone I know, a feeling came over me. It was like remembering something I'd never known before or had always been waiting for, but I didn't know what. Maybe it was something I'd forgotten or something I've been missing all my life. All I can say is that I felt, at the same time, joy and sadness. But not too much sadness, because I felt alive. Yes, alive. That was the moment I fell in love with Paris. And I felt it fall in love with me."

paris, je t'aime

You are too generous with your link love my dear! Not that I'm complaining...I've not been to Paris since I was 13--went with my dad. I was an awkward and resentful teenager, he a bumbling american tourist with an overlarge backpack. something tells me i may not have appreciated the city as I would if I were to go back there now!

Nice, on the other hand, has my heart!
