I appreciate that these sumptuous carpets
and gorgeous painted dressers are
still here for us to admire.
The chairs aren't too shabby, either.

I could spend days at the Marché aux Puces,
even if I were just looking—though
buying (and haggling over the price) is more fun.
I was tempted by this pretty silver pot
the last time I was there.

A detail from one of the thousands
of family crypts in Paris's
most famous cemetery, final resting
place of Abelard and Héloise
(together at last), Colette, Chopin,
Stéphane Grapelli, Molière . . . and a few
people I actually knew.

A runner in the Parc des Buttes Chaumont,

far-sighted Baron Haussmann decided that

19th and 20th arrondissements needed
a beautiful green space.

These belong to one of Martin Desjardins'
Four Captives (this one is Holland),
who've been in chains since 1715.
Find them in the Cour Marly et Puget,
in the Louvre.

This is un "merveilleux," my fave dessert
at my fave Paris restaurant. The
restaurant is Circonstances, and this
concoction of silky crème Chantilly, crunchy
bits of meringue, and sweet/salty caramel
is indeed marvelous.
