I’ve spent the past days softly re-entering the world of New York, re-entering my everyday life. I’ve shopped for groceries and done errands. I had French pastries (of course!) from Maison Kayser with a dear friend. And I had the dearest days with my beloved. I hadn’t been back in the States for even a few hours before we planned a spring getaway for us two. Yes, this seems it will be a year of amazing travel, and I can’t imagine a more wondrous way to do it than in the arms of the one who makes my heart flutter.
I continue to glow in the experience of Paris and Versailles, and so the blog and my Instagram account will continue to reveal moments of my time there. I will also take a few minutes this week to photograph my winter approach to Parisian style in all its very basic nature. I continue to be amazed that I brought only a quarter of a Muji carry-on of clothing. Two or three times that space was given over to photographic and computing equipment! And I really didn’t miss anything hanging in the closet at home—not a single thing. Once more, I return with a deeper realization of how much I carry as part of my everyday life.
So I plan to weigh with greater consideration the impact and importance of whatever I bring into my world this year. I mean purchases, but also experiences and friendships and new tastes and sensations. I see this consideration as a part of cherishing what is in my life. That seems to the way to be fulfilled.
