"Joie de Vivre..."

Inspired by the romantic city of Paris, France
my Muse
set out to fill this heart to the very brim
a certain "je ne sais quoi":
romance, artful lines, light, classical elegance,
and a lavish dose of
"joie de vivre."
May your heart also be filled to overflowing with
the joys of life you find everyday
all around you.

"If you are lucky enough
to have lived in Paris as a young man,
then wherever you go for the rest of your life,
it stays with you,
for Paris is a moveable feast."
~Ernest Hemingway
