    I'm so sorry you're leaving Paris!!!! I am in California and I've so enjoyed reading your posts from Paris, as it is one of the best cities in the world! But California is pretty darned good, too. Welcome back.

    Well, I'm sorry to hear you won't be posting from Paris anymore, but at the same time, I'm really looking forward to your new posts about living in California, which happens to be my home state where I grew up. Good luck getting settled with your move

    Hey, at least here you know it won't last very long. Welcome back to LA!

    Apologies if I've missed this, but why have you left Paris and moved to California?

    Today's quotation

    • In Paris, the purest virtue is the object of the filthiest slander.

        –Honoré Balzac (1799-1850), in Scènes de la vie privée

      À Paris, la vertu la plus pure est l'objet des plus sales calomnies.
