Postcard from Paris

Sunday, November 11, 2012

I arrived in Paris on a beautiful Saturday morning in the 18th arrondissement.
I found my way haphazardly to my girlfriend Julia's flat using broken French and my smile!
I opened the gate to paradise...
and documented myself in the mirror to make sure this was all real.
I rode the metro from Chateau Rouge to Palais Royal to find my Paris daydream.

Manhattan Skyline Oct 30th, 2012

I'm not really sure where to begin writing here my loves?! Exactly one week ago I sat at my computer describing the eeriness of the impending Hurricane Sandy. I thought foolishly that a day or two off from work would provide me with some much needed rest and time to paint. I had no idea that my forthcoming week would be spent in darkness. I was both literally and figuratively powerless.

Before I continue, I would like to acknowledge that there are thousands of people along the East Coast who continue to suffer much greater losses than I ever could have conceived of. People lost their lives, their homes in Sandy. I know my ignorance in not having lived through massive weather or war related devastation. But I do think that as minor or major as my story may be, it is worth telling.
