lords of the fleas
i’ve made some good friends here, the fluffy guards who stay right by their masters at the markets. my dog always wandered away, maybe they give them pâté as incentive?
and some human friends too, like Christine who offers unbelievable services…like if you rent an apartment here, she’ll get the gas, electric and internet turned on for you…how cool is that!?
and as i leave today i’m looking at the signs, the words on the street. knowing i’ll be back makes it easier to leave, the fact that it’s raining and cold is definitely giving me the incentive i need to pack up and see what’s ahead!
but Paris, i was never a real Francophile, i just loved your French design. jetting in and out all these years i see now that it was only a surface and superficial love based on looks. now it’s deeper and true, yes true love for your magic and mahem and i will never be the same! most importantly i’ve learned the French are not rude, they are just very serious. they are in fact some of the most charming and gentle people i’ve ever met. in these days they’ve given me cadeaux, advice, held doors, offered seats…this has been an incredible experience, a gift i’m so glad i gave myself and i want to thank YOU, blogging friends, for encouraging me to do it. i hope to be here with you next time! all my love and see you on the other side!
