The Adventure Moves to Paris

In case you can't tell, I have a tremendous amount of studying to do, which is why I am sitting here looking at The Lovely Daughter's photos.

I don't know whether the girls were talking about The DaVinci Code while they took pictures in front of The Louvre, but it seems from her album that they have been to Shakespeare's house, to the Harry Potter Steps at Oxford, and to the home of both TDC and the Mona Lisa. I am struck, as I always am, by how the narratives of our lives and those we adopt as our own all tend to merge -- and I'm really pleased that these young women are enjoying the sources of much of their art and literature and history as much as they are the cafes and pubs and nightclubs of three countries.

Hi. i'm so tickled to have seen your comment at a journal I enjoy. I left journals for a while, and have been popping around getting my feet wet. Yours was one I really enjoyed. So glad to find you! ;) C.
