It's worth the flight to Paris


The Louvre tonight

An Ontario fur distributor in Canada had an ad that said,
"It's worth the drive to Acton." Acton is an Ontario small
town, and the fur and leather coat company were trying to
boost sales there. I don't wear fur or leather except shoes,
but that's not the point.

Steven and I often copy that phrase in a joking manner
when we travel anywhere.  Like today -- "it's worth the
flight to Paris." Is it? Yes.  We just walked to the Louvre from
our hotel.  Exhausted as we are today, the experience was

There were magnificent musicians playing solos, children in
illuminated roller skates, skateboarders. Even after closing time
the Louvre radiates magnificence.

Have a noticing what's amazing day.

Hi Flora,

Thank you so much. The flight and the time change were pretty exhausting, but luckily
we are here for a week, so now on day 3, we feel 100% Parisian. People have been
so kind to us. And we know some people from previous visits, so that's wonderful.
Miss you Flora. Love your work.
