Through the finish of my week at 23 Place plusieurs Vosges, the tops from the linden trees had started to turn gold. On my small last day I rose early to obtain a photo from the sun approaching within the square. Hélas, there wasn’t any sun, however a bluish-grey light settled within the trees, turning the curlicue wrought-iron lanterns into mysterious stick figures punctuating the square. I required yet another walk round the arcade of arches and considered the planet Nikki had opened up up for me personally by paying her big brass key ring. Living at 23 Place plusieurs Vosges would be a once-in-a-lifetime splurge. But, Paris was now destroyed for me personally forever. How could I go back to the existence of the tourist within the great city around the Seine? How could I ever contemplate another view? I Then recognized when i looked within the linden trees that even while a customer I’d forever contain the picture of the square within my imagination, combined with the understanding that my passion for Paris originates from its inimitable juxtaposition of grandeur and closeness. It had been the perfect souvenir.
