It's the Little Things

I'm been feeling a little 'out of sorts' lately....well, maybe not as bad as the lady in the photo....but certainly not my usual self and couldn't quite work out why.  Here I am in Paris....I can't be 'out of sorts'.  I must be crazy.

But then I realised what was wrong.....no music.....we hadn't been playing any music.  There's no cd player in the apartment and French radio is OK....but I needed my favourites.  We'd tried putting the iPod through the laptop....but it didn't really do justice to my favourites.

So Pierre to the rescue....and he's just come back from FNAC with a lovely little Sony iPod/iPhone dock....Chris Botti is now playing as I write this.........aaahhhh I feel human again!

Isn't it funny how the little things make all the difference.

Here's a few more little 'Parisian' things that I think you'll like.
Somewhere close to home on rue de la Rochefoucauld
Un verre rouge on a wet afternoon....Bastille
Sunset from our bedroom window
A shaft of light....Cathedral at Chartres
And always good manners...Bonjour to you!

  4. You have such an eye for the little things. Pleased that you are now humming along with your favorite music. No doubt there's some Dylan amongst it. Jude
