In the mood for Paris -- the urge to travel for art

Travelling for art shows is not free.  Immediately people
I know who always know what to do in every situation
chime in with, "you could do this...or you could
do this!"  The facts are -- yes I know very well what
the options are, AND, I'd still like to do it.

Notre Dame in Paris before it 
suffered a fire this year.
So.  Today if I were throwing a dart at the globe spinning
before me -- I would choose Paris.  I am straight up with
no holds back in love with Paris.  I feel for Paris taking
a hit on its iconic cathedral -- Notre Dame, and I would
really like to go there again.

Me with Miranda Brouwers in front of
her painting in the Carrousel du Louvre 
exhibition in 2016
The Russo brothers were wonderful to exhibit with in
their EA Effetto ARTE Gallery booth at the Carrousel du Louvre,
and I count their curator, Alessandra Masha Mascitti as a friend.
Yes we would want to see her very much.

I love the people, the Louvre, the Musée D'Orsay, gallery,
the Seine, the food.  The last time we were in Paris we hung out with
my friends Miranda Brouwers and Rolf Leemeijer and their
sons Marnix and Hugo, and had the best time. I would
love to do that again too.

In short it's almost fall -- it's time to travel, and to plan the
delights of the coming season.  Paris.  I miss you.

Have a loving art shows day.
