Lighten Up!

I complain all the time about how gray and dismal the weather is and one day I go out for a late afternoon walk and see this.  Clear sunset skies over the Tuileries gardens make your breath catch for a moment while you remember that winter isn't all bad.

Paris light is special, indescribable.  It helps make all the drizzly days tolerable, knowing that soon every buildng, every monument, every bare tree will be outlined against that sky and that you will realize that there are in fact hundreds, thousands of shades of gray and each of them is seen at its best in Paris.

The food doesn't hurt either.
