Two blogs, one Facebook fan page, and the rest of my life to take care of and now apparently I need to be on Twitter. I can barely text on my phone so the thought of Twittering, something that I'm sure must be attended to multiple times a day, is more than I can bear. Has it really come to this? Are we nothing unless the rest of the world knows what we are doing, thinking, eating, breathing at every moment of every day?
I refuse to believe it. Instead I leave you with these pictures, something more enduring than a tweet, status update, or blog post. And you'll just have to ignore the irony that this is posted on-line.
"Dawn" amid late summer roses in Square Georges Cain in the Marais.
The Arc de Triomphe on a midwinter morning.
Notre Dame reigns graciously over Ile de la Cite.
Chestnut trees in bloom.
Everyone's favorite Parisian park, just below the Pont Neuf.
