It's been hot in Paris lately, I'm told.
I'm miserable in heat without air conditioning
so I know how I would be
but something in me would still like to be there,
walking the sultry streets~
enjoying the revelers in cafe chairs~
the picnickers on the lawn of the Champ de Mars~
the trucked-in sand of the Paris Plage.
The summer has flown by here,
weeks escaping like wind on the moors.
I've barely had time to catch my breath.
I had the weekend to myself which I thought would do it
but I still feel like I just scratched the surface of my To-Do List!
Hope you all have enjoyed your summer
and are getting ready for that
To-Do List that is fall.
I can feel it already in the air.
Enjoy the last precious days.
