PARIS WILL NOT PERISH


I watched coverage today in Paris from an online British station. It is important to me. More important than writing or dressing or going out. The journalists were sympathetic, the interviews soulful, the images–silencing. I don’t believe prayers are enough. President Hollande declared war.

Last night I watched a French film, Lola, before I heard the news. This was a film of Paris as golden and grainy as autumn. I thought I must go to Paris. Today I still must go to Paris.  BN-LG537_1114FR_J_20151114151709

  2. YES, I CAN SEE YOU THERE, SENDING REGULAR DISPATCHES FROM THE CITY OF LIGHTS.

    YOU KNOW, WALKING THE CITY, STOPPING IN A CAFÉ OR AN ABSINTHE BAR OR A CREPERIE TO POST YOUR DAILY REPORTS AND INTERPRETATIONS OF THAT AMAZING METROPOLIS…

    PARIS COULD BE YOUR “NEW SANTA FE.”

    Apologies for “shouting” (that’s what all caps means, as you know).
