Place des Vogses, Paris


Today is my birthday, but a different type of post is more fitting.  I was reading through various books on Paris yesterday afternoon and evening, preparing for my spring trip, when the news broke about the terrorist attacks.  The news is devastating.

My birthday wish is that my friends there—and their friends and family—are well and happy and loved.

May there be peace in the world.
