    1. In 2009, I spent a week in Paris. Invigorating and challenging. I will return. Have you heard about this book?

      The Most Beautiful Walk in the World: A Pedestrian in Paris by John Baxter

      This is the blurb: “Thrust into the unlikely role of professional “literary walking tour” guide, an expat writer provides the most irresistibly witty and revealing tour of Paris in years.”

      I have it on my Kindle. Maybe I should add it to my 2014 Reading Program. You see how easy it is to add books! It is one of my favourite pastimes.


      1. About a week ago my computer had a total meltdown – happened right in the middle of a blog post. Everything went black. So I have been computerless for about a week, except for my trusty iPhone! This hiatus was a reminder that we are in a vibrant, global conversation via wires and cables. It is great to be back and connecting again. 🙂
