I took this from my sister-in-law Michele's apartment window the first night of the trip my friend, Barbara, and I took in 2011. I stood and stared at the city beneath me, so excited that our whole trip lay ahead. The small orb-like lights are not spirits, alas, but raindrops on the huge picture window.
Across the Seine, March 2013.
The I. M. Pei entrance to the Louvre. (Museum open 'til 9:45 on Wed. and Fri.!)
