We… celebrated…

Life… at…

Caféde Flore

“Toujours”… reminiscent of “les grands philosophes“.. artists.. poets…

Proust… Sartre…

Voltaire… Balzac…

Matisse… Camus…

Oh… and Coco Chanel… among the many that represent and embody the great civilisation that is…

La.. France

Despite the horrific abyss when Parisétais frappé dans sa chair et dans son âme“… bludgeoned body and soul… the city was slowly and painfully recovering…

Le chef de l’Etat François Hollande… encouraged us “citoyens“… to continue in our much-loved Parisian lifestyle… the convivial café culture where people enjoy their “débats philosophique et politique“…

Waiters with their delightful trays… whizzing about chatting with their regular clients with a wink and a smile… and their irresistible Gallic shrug…

Chic women… with their winter furs and their Chihuahuas

Couples… lovers… sipping their wines…

The inspirational patriotic French “drapeaux“.. les Bleu, Blanc, Rouge…  were fluttering with pride from windows and balconies.. sending a message of courage and defiance…

L’hommage de la France

Paris… today…

Paid… homage…

To those who… lost their lives…

In this… City of Beauty…

Of Style… of Culture…

And… so much.. much.. more…

We all… stand up tall…

In the city… we adore…

And… shout…
