paris, je t’aime

this morning on my walk to work i suddenly was hit with a wave of melancholy nostalgia–i had a flashback of being in paris. it was the color of the sidewalk in this first fall rain, the way the leaves were blowing low to the ground…it was something in the air. at that moment i thought of this perfect quote from the movie “paris, je t’aime.” i love this quote because i feel like it describes my experience with paris exactly.

“i can only tell you that at the same time i felt joy and sadness. but not great sadness. because i felt alive. yes. alive. that was the moment when i fell in love with paris. and that is the moment i felt that paris had fallen in love with me.”

on a sidenote, happy halloween everyone!
