    It was an exciting day even if it was cool and rainy all day. The parade was the big event because the racers swept by so fast we hardly saw them. I was pleasantly surprised to see the women’s race before the parade.

    Even at the end, the bikers are still in a pack! That’s pretty scary as fast as they ride.

    I meant to email you yesterday, but maybe this will do. At the end of the book I mentioned, “The Nightingale,” there is a passage that puts into words how I felt in Paris last fall. The main character has returned to the city after a long absence and she is sitting at an outdoor restaurant overlooking the Seine, near Notre Dame when she says: “I had forgotten how gently time passes in Paris. As lively as the city is, there is a stillness to it, a peace that lures you in. In Paris, with a glass of wine in your hand, you can just be.” That’s exactly how I still think of the city as I remember and read your posts.

      Lovely thoughts, Charles. I’m so glad that Paris made such an impression on you.
