So Very Poignant

Maybe you have been there too. This is the time of day we loved the most. Twilight, the river, the sky all come together over that beautiful Cathedral. When you are in Paris, you walk and walk until your feet ache. Then if you are lucky, you go to one of the many sidewalk cafes, open-air and inviting, and have a glass of wine and people watch. Always the Cathedral is in the background, huge and elegant reminding you always of just where you are. People of France, the world shares your loss and hope for a renovation like no other.



  1. Such a shame. Sam found a quote this morning while he was streaming the news.

    A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile
    the moment a single man contemplates it,
    bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

    Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
    The Little Prince


  2. We've never had the privilege of viewing such history in person but just the same it was heartbreaking to hear of the destruction of such an amazing landmark. On the positive side ... it appears to have been an accident and not an intentional act ... and not all was lost ... I'm sure the people of France will see to it's resurrection .. nj

  3. Very sad.... thanks for sharing your memories with us. Love your support of France here, Meredith. Hugs, Windy

  4. Beautiful pic Meredith, so very sad. I haven't had the privilege of seeing it in person either.


  5. This is so very sad, so much history now gone. It’s at these times of tragedy that really bring people together. I know that this amazing structure will be rebuilt. It won’t be quite the same, but it will still stand and always be part of Paris.

  6. This was very sad, Meredith! A beautiful, historical landmark no longer. So happy to hear that they were able to save bits of it! Many hugs,

    ❤️Katie xoxo
