Paris first captured my heart when I saw "Gigi" in elementary school. I started studying French in junior high school and my dream was to visit the city we studied. I've had that pleasure, nine times over. I've stayed in different neighborhoods and enjoyed each trip. I'm not sure what year this picture was taken or where I was standing, but with my little point and shoot camera I captured a rainbow over Paris. I've shared Paris with my mother and with friends, wandering the streets, drinking coffee in cafes and enjoying art in dozens of galleries and museums. I love Paris. I shared this photograph early in my blogging career to celebrate Bastille Day.
I had a very different post almost completed for today. I was going to write about a trio of romance novellas for Fiction Friday. But with the first "Breaking News" late this afternoon my heart, prayers and thoughts are in Paris, and Fiction Friday will wait for another Friday, one I pray will be calmer.
Let us join in a chain of prayer around the world for the people of Paris and especially for those being held hostage. Tonight we are all French.
