Remembering Paris

What better way to be lost than walking the streets of Paris in September. Elaine Sciolino’s article in the New York Times – Paris, One Step At A Time –   gave me a name for my wanderings this Fall – a flâneuse. 

 And yes, the title is respectable – a Parisian walker and sometime writer. George Sand and France’s Trollope may have been the first. But Sciolino used the term for ordinary mortals who enjoy walking and absorbing.
