Bonne Année from Paris

Madame Eiffel in the mist

Bonne année 2020 from Paris!

I wanted a beautiful photo of Madame Eiffel this evening, to celebrate the new year *and* my recent completion of the first draft of my Paris-themed memoir. There must be a metaphor with the above photo, about life’s path not always being clear and our best-laid plans veering off-course and the ultimate beauty that lies around us.

Have you ever had a heart connection to a place, even from the other side of the world? It took me 20 years from my first visit — and a few little detours — to get a key to the City of Light. One of my 2020 goals is to shape this manuscript into a book.

A completed first draft. Whew!

Avec tous nos vœux de bonheur et une très belle nouvelle année, with Clive’s and my wishes for happiness and a beautiful new year for all.
