My future meets someone else's past...
A few summers ago, I bought this little book of photos at my neighbor's yard sale. I had no plans at that time to go to Paris. I just like old photos.
These are all held in corner slits on a nice onion skin paper. Each photo is about 2x5". The place name is hand-written nearby in black India ink.
I will actually be going to Paris next week. My oldest son is taking me for my birthday!
I will finally see the Unicorn Tapestries at the Cluny Museum.
And I would love to see the sites from these photos, or at least some of them, and take my own photo from the same viewpoint.
If I can, I will post here about my adventures while there. If not, I will certainly let you know about them when I return.
The booksellers on the left bank! Will they still be there?
Isn't it a lovely serendipity how you can sometimes pick something up, not knowing what part it will play in your life, and then a few years later find that it has a meaningful part to play, after all?
Another lovely thought is that perhaps someone will buy one of my travel albums for a pittance at a yard sale some day, then will go in search of the things I have seen and treasured.
Life, inspiring life....
