kerouac, your photo makes me sad. Much as I dislike crowds, to see Paris this way is sobering.

Back in 2016, not encountering another person as we walked along the Mayenne river towpath was pleasant since the quiet let us hear the birds calling, the cows mooing, and fish splashing as they jumped out of the water. Back then it wasn't lonely, just a quiet break in the day.

Coq, your image here brings back the sense of better bygone times. Guess that we've all had to make an effort to rid our minds of any fantasies of a quick return.
Spare a thought for hard-working folks whose long-time plan had been to finally visit say France (or wherever) only to have covid indefinitely delay things or God forbid, take their lives or that of their loved one/travel partners.
That kinda happened to my original physician about 15 years ago. In his office, he and I would spend as much time talking travel as we did examining my health. His primary goal was to work, then retire to a long-planned year in Provence. He'd never been to France and whenever I exited his office, I'd point to the pair of Provencal scene pastels upon his wall and comment something like, "Not long now Dave---you're gonna get there soon.' He was older than me.
Then one Xmas Day, he died of a massive heart attack.
Count your blessings, yeah?
I am done. The end.

isabel Your photos are a feast for the eyes! I want to go back, when I have time and look at all of them, not just France.

When you venture away from the center of Paris, you can discover that some of the old time clichés still exist. For example, yesterday...

About 50 years ago a guy at work kept talking about his pending retirement....9 mo....7 mo......5 mo.... 2 mo.....
During the lunch hour, about 6 weeks before retirement, he's walking down the hall, and faceplants on the floor. Dead. Before landing.

Enjoy life. It's a gift
