City and Cité

Red and blue are the colors! Here's a display for Christmas, red artificial flowers in a beautiful display. These trees were set up in a courtyard, the lights blinked blue and white along the bottom. The red seating is in the Grande Salle of Centre Pompidou, where we saw a dance concert on Wednesday night by the Bruno Beltrao group. A fast paced choreography with roots in street dancing, hip-hop. Very athletic and satisfying. Here I am, on the Pont de Tournelle, Notre Dame in the background, in a photo by Agnese Zeltina (our Latvian photographer friend.) And finally, a photo of C's socks drying on his bed, and the college (high school) students outside waiting for their bus to take them on some excursion.

Mim my friend thank you for your beautiful postcard from Paris. I too went there about twelve years ago to Lourdes with my grandaughter who has Cerebral Palsy and confined to a wheelchair. I had a wonderful time and loads of great memories.
I too enjoy painting and drawing but only a learner at this time. I also have a blog here, waywithwords and I am now following you with your beautiful blog. smiles. I will send you some postcards from my home town soon my new friend. HUGSxxxxAnne
