Where it all began

Bonjour mes amis!

I thought I’d kick this off with the quote that started it all.  The words jumped off the page and spoke to something in 17-year-old-me that I couldn’t quite articulate.  It is as true for me now as it was then.

In the purer realm of travel, which has nothing to do with vacations; humans hope to be moved rather than to move. They seek an external geography that will act on their internal psychology like an irresistible force, so that they will return to the place from which they came blessed and altered.

This blog will be all about Paris – my external geography, which no matter where I am in the world, continues to bless and alter me.

(Because I carry Paris in my pocket…)
