Paris in July - week 4 (but not the last)


 Nearly 20 days into July and how excitingly diverse has this journey been? I'm loving it, and I'm hearing from many that it's been a great joy. In the past week, we have been enlightened by posts about classic literature, films, images from Paris now, and memories of Paris past. We seen recipes, reviews of novels, essays, posts about the authors themselves , and more of Maigret! and of course, it was Bastille Day. 

For me, the highlight this week was spending time with Karen, my fellow co founder of Paris in July, and being reminded of why this idea even got started. So here's a quote I found to reflect on this week, and our shared passion to spend time in Paris in July each year together....

“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.”   ― Goethe

Here's to another week!

That’s a great quote.

I had two posts ready for week 4– now linked, but I’m leaving town soon so this is my last week of participation. It’s been wonderful and fascinating, and I’ll eventually read all the posts. Maybe I’ll manage one more.

Another week? I'll have to put my thinking cap on for that one. This week we go to the flea markets!

Love the quote, it says to much of what is important in life. It has been a marvellous month so far, and I am happy there are still a few days left.

I've been so busy that's I've barely had time to visit others this week and that's where most of the fun is!
