Thinking of Paris

Today my heart goes out to Paris.  Yes, it is always in Paris, but today I mourn once again for its citizens.  There is something terribly wrong with our world that such a thing can happen in Paris.  Or in Beirut (also today).  Or anywhere.  It’s just that I know Paris, having been there 3 times.   Below is a repost of one of the many posts I’ve done featuring this great city.  The post was from July 6, 2015.  I add 3 more photos at the bottom, though I wish I could have added 300 more.

Buildings by the Seine - 2002

I know this sounds like a cliche, but Paris is my favorite city.  I’ve visited three times, the first in 2001 and the last in 2011.

Latin Quarter - 2011

One of the first short stories I posted on Trent’s World was set in Paris and is based on something that did happen the first time I was there.

Avenue des Champs-Élysées - 2001

I’ve also featured Paris in several other posts, including a Haiku.  I even put up a selfie from Paris, 2002:

Of all of things I’ve posted on my blog about Paris, my favorite has to be the video of my Prelude in Ab, Dreams of Paris.   Once also posted a non-musical analysis of this prelude.  If you haven’t seen the video, check it out:

Here are a few more photos (added 13 Nov 2015) – Let us strive for beauty!  Terrorism cannot prevail!
