A Beautiful Sunday

Today was an amazing beautiful day, the sky was clear and blue, the sun was shining. I could hear birds singing. For a November day it was surprisingly warm.

In the mist of recent events I have shied away from looking at the news, my heart is still heavy, but I try to see the bright sides of life.

I would like to thank everyone for your very nice comments, I will reply to them in the days to come. I am touched by all this love and compassion. Thank you!

I am relieved to say that my friends and family are all sound and safe.

Yesterday, things were strange, the streets were too empty for a Saturday. Many businesses had shut down for the day, out of respect. I spend a lot of time with my family, I even got to see my best friend and her mother. It was good to see people, to be with those I love.

Today, I was happy to see that life was coming back, people were enjoying the sun. The laughter of children filled the air.

I tried to make the most out of today, not have my mind wander into dark zones. I kept my eyes open for beauty to share with you.

Almost every day I walk past two things. One I have never consciously seen, but it made me smile. The other, I have often remarked, but never photographed to share, but today I made sure to snap a picture of a quote that can warm hearts.

I walk past this heartwarming sign almost daily, but I never noticed it until today
quote, Paris
This quote by Robert Montgomery can be found attached to a building near the Park Monceau

    1. It is a bit hard at the moment. I try to rid my mind of all negativity. These things help, but they don’t solve everything.
      I hope that you are ok yourself, you must be shaken too.
      Gros bisous!

        1. I did a lot of writing in relation to Friday’s events and just put up another post, which should be the last one marked by darkness. Now I want to go back to happy blogging…

    1. Isn’t it? I have no idea whose quote it is.
      I must be seeing angels every evening as there are many windows across from my apartment in which the sun reflects 🙂

  3. I was sure when I saw that sculpture that it must be by Nathan Coley, a Scottish artist – I’ve seen similar work by him in a couple of places. So I googled it, and it isn’t! It’s by Robert Montgomery who is also a Scottish artist. I’m not sure if it’s coincidence or if they have worked together. It’s a nice quote to think about at the moment.
