A lovely thing about having children
many times you are lucky enough to share their dreams
never in a million years
did i plan to travel to Paris
my lovely Liz has wanted to go ever since Madeline (the cartoon) entertained her as a child
Paris was never "if" but "when"
my brother presented a birthday present
to this birthday girl
"Come visit me"
really, the opportunity of a lifetime
so sweetie sacrificed big time
he cashed in all of his hard earned frequent flier miles...and then some
said he'd get along fine with a quick tutorial
and encouraged us to go
so, we packed our bags
and for two weeks
we lived the life of carefree girls
my first view of the Eiffel tower blew me away
it is enormous
did i say enormous?no kidding, i got emotional
when we rounded the corner
and BAM! there it was
this is my tour guide
and faithful friend
i look excited because...well, it was a big fat WOW!
If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.
