How do I wrap up a period of almost four months that began like this -
and has finished off like this -
It's the passing of the seasons, something this garden has seen for many, many years...and that I was blessed to experience for one of them.
And in those seasons of Fall and Winter 2011-12, it's impossible to sum up the feelings or the memories in a few words. But, truly, the words grateful, appreciative and blessed are primarily the ones that come to mind. All the stories behind all the feelings and gratefulness will have to wait, for now.
But, before I depart (to visit friends, family and seek the ever elusive French student visa, not necessarily in that order), just a few more photos that capture some of my diverse Paris memories of Fall/Winter 2011-12.
